The article talks about the various changes in your lifestyle and
personality that are a prove that you have grown from being a boy to a
man. Read the points and see if you are mature enough to be a man.
1. Accepting your responsibility is very first characteristic of a real man.
Whether it’s on a personal front or in your relationship, being committed
to your duties is not an easy task. The moment you stop running away
from your obligation, you will qualify to be a mature man.
2. The way you treat the people around you is another way of
determining your personality and the kind of a person you are. A man
treats every woman with respect. If you still take the woman of your life
for granted, then, you are still not mature enough. The person who
treasures his family along with his peer group is the man that every
woman wants to have in her life.
3. "A man is fearless", is probably the biggest misconception. In fact, it
would be better to say that a boy who is young and careless will have no
fear in life. At this phase of life, you don't have the courage of accepting
your fears. As you grow up, there are a lot of vulnerability and most
importantly, you get the courage to admit those fears. A real man accepts
his fear and fights to get over it.
4. You can depend on a man, but not on a boy. When you gain maturity,
people around starts trusting you. Moreover, at this stage you are efficient
enough to take the burden of all the trust entrusted upon your shoulders.
In short, when a boy becomes dependable, he said to be called a man.
5. Anger comes naturally to male. However, a man knows how to
channel his temper. Unlike boys, a man is not a slave of his anger. This is,
in fact, the basic principle of growing up. Learn to control your rage and
direct it towards positivity. You actually grow up, the moment you are
successful in doing this.
6. Having compassion and forgiveness for others is another trait of a
gentleman. When you are calm and peaceful, instead of irrational, then,
you can be sure of gaining maturity. Encourage and support the people
around you, especially, the women in your life. Be flexible enough to
accept the decision of others.
7. Coming to the basic, this change is accompanied by a major change in
your style and dressing. This is the time when the funky t-shirts and
laid-back looks won't intrigue you anymore. You will upgrade your
wardrobe from the colorful designer tees to formal shirts. Even your
choice of cologne and underwear style is evident of this major change in
your life. Research has proved that wearing a strong fragrance is a
symbol of immaturity. Moreover, switching from your tighty-whitey to a
boxer brief is another proof of gaining maturity.
There is a difference between being masculine and being ‘The Man’.
Aging is not the only way to gain maturity. You have to be an adult and
you will have to learn with your mistakes and life experience. So, look
out for these signs in your personality and figure out whether you are
‘The Man’, she wants to be with or not.
