The man i want to be.

Updated on March 16, 2010

A good man.

The man i want to be

Most people believe that marrying several women makes one a man while some believe that he who can fight all the time is the man, some as well believe that a man is that particular guy who can do away with what he want but though each and every one of these might be true yet being a man is not just being a fighter, a Casanova or a father to a child.There are so many attributes that make one a man and the man i want to be is the one who will be better than my hero.

I have always wanted to be a better man even before life took it all away from me.Throughout my life time,i have come across great men, men of virtues and principals, courageous and brave men, noble men and gentle men.I have also met quite a good number of those whom i will honestly consider failures to what i consider being a man.The man i have dreamed of all my life is that very man who excels in being a man and that is the man i want to be.

Two kinds of men.

I learned from my grand father's son,my hero and mentor that there are two kinds of men.

(1).Those that excel in being a man

(2).Those that fail in being a man

I want to be among those that excel in being a man because in as much as i am not afraid to loose or fail in anything i do because of other options i have yet i do not in any way want to fail in this aspect because there is only one option in being a man.I want to be a real man, a man of virtue,integrity,love,politeness and an Innovative real man.I want to be a good man.Yes! This is the man i want to be. A good man.


A man of virtue is a role model to others, he holds the key to mutual understanding among all men, he believes in equity and justice, his approaches towards life shows morality, purity and in this man you will always find;







A man of integrity is a noble man, he is peaceful and believes in equality, he seeks the truth all the time and in this man,you will always find;







A man of love is the woman's dream, he excels in being a father to a son and is the desirable man for every woman,he is caring and faithful,surrounds himself with good friends,this kind of man is rare to find,this kind of man seeks oneness and in him you will always find;







A man of politeness is a special man who comes once in a life time, this man irrespective of class,color or creed stands out in a million,he listens when he is not suppose to speak and has a sound social relationship because he seeks a refined culture for all.In this man you will always find;







This is the real man,a man with ideas for a sustainable society,this man seeks competence for all and excels in his family because of the ground breaking ideas he equips in all and sundries,this kind of man is worthy to be called daddy,though everyone look onto him yet he stands by his son and in this man you will always find;






Honestly,this is the man i want to be, a man with kinky mind for romance and i have always asked God not to change me from the man i want to be but to help make me a productive and positive element who will not harm but heal, a man who will always respect the ladies and give insight to the youths.A good man who will always see the best in others and pour in love where there is no love,this is the man i am because in me you will never find;



The man i want to be

      Very True.. A man with great qualities of the "Real Man" is the one who is truely happy and couragious. There are great examples in history..I consider Mahatma Gandhi as a man.. since he had courage to fight against empire .. at the same time he taught non-violence.. These are great men and true idols for today's world.

      What a great hub! Love your concept of 2 kinds of men- excelling or failing as a man. That's truly the bottom line. I feel I relate well with your thoughts on this, as my husband are all of these qualities you describe and I adore and appreciate him everyday. Before finding him I vowed to never settle for anything less than what I wanted in a man in all aspects. I have to add, that with this kind of man there no regards to time, pressure, stress, or anything negative- he is continuously inspiring, believing the best of you, and the kind of man that drives me to be a better woman for him everyday. Your perception of these values are priceless, unfortunately rare with most men. Looking forward to reading more! =)
