What makes a man a man?
what makes him so different from a boy?
He can provide for himself and those he care for. At least of legal age and know how to take responsibility from his own action.
A man must be pure like a kid, learner like a boy and behave like a man. What more?
A man is a man when he knows how to treat a women with respect and with responsibility. Women are to be protected,not to be insulted or being manipulated by man.A great difference between a man and a boy is his maturity.
how is a man to be pure like a kid? that is a lot of confusion in that answer. he has be be part kid, boy and man?
Pure love to others make a man a man......... Love is God.
In the words of Tina Turner, "What's Love Got To Do With It?" lol
Man expresses emotions but he is not an emotion. A man who has never been "in love" or does not feel love for mankind is still a man! A child who is loving is still a child.
A man is more mature, stronger and has road sense! A good man can protect you, make you feel safe, support his family and be faithful, loving and let you know that you are adored.
A man does not have to prove how manly he is either by aggression, boasting, controlling others or by acts of bravado. A man is secure enough to allow his gentle sensitive side to thrive.
Excellent question. What makes a man a man? Being himself, his true, authentic, genuine self. What makes a woman a woman? Being herself.
What makes a man a male drone? Allowing other people to tell him what his identity as a man is and following it.
The only person that tells me who I am is me. I don't conform to what someone else thinks a man should be.
People who try to tell me what I should be as a man can get .......!
A man is an (adult male) in the eyes of the law pure and simple.
The rest of the stuff that is said has more to do with an individual's opinion or desire of what they feel are the (qualities) of a "real man". There are strong men, there are weak men, there are responsible men, there are irresponsible men, there are kind men, there are evil men, there are mature men, and there are immature men.
Behavior does not dictate the difference between a man and a boy or between a woman and a girl. Legally age is the determining factor.
To believe behavior is the difference is to insult actual boys and girls. No one would consider a 14 year old boy to be a "real man" because he does his chores, saves his allowance, and doesn't hit girls. :-)
In a legal sense, we rely on biology. And in a technical sense, it's all about age. Since biology varies and physical maturity arrives at different times, this is somewhat poorly defined, especially in days when puberty comes earlier, but expectation to "grow up" is pushed later. We do know that certain markers for development occur near certain ages. But again, those markers are not stable and are being pushed earlier. I was reading the average age for puberty is now 9 years old.
In a more personal sense we often refer to emotional maturity. There are many definitions for what that means, however. This differs by culture, and by personal perspectives.
After years of observation and research, the simplest and, I think, most universal answer I have, is this:
Being a man means reaching a level of maturity high enough to take responsibility for your own life, and sometimes others.
This responsibility doesn't always mean financial responsibility or responsibility as head of a household. Sometimes this is as simple as being aware of self and others enough to accept the wisdom around us and act on it. Other times this means providing wisdom for others. This kind of maturity transcends disability and sometimes age.
