What kind of a man are you? Do you consider yourself a “manly man” who is an expert at all things manly? Do you have a sensitive and more nurturing side as well as a rough and tough side? Could you be manly and still be in touch with your emotions, or is that not allowed?
The old-fashioned term is most commonly referring to a rough and tough kind of guy who is all brawn and no brains. Not someone who wears their heart on their sleeve or tends to be a hopeless romantic. To a manly man, those are all signs of weakness! (Who made them the boss anyway??)
Are you a manly man, or are you more of a nice guy? Or are you somewhere in between the two? Take this short quiz to find out exactly where you fall and how much of a man are you.
