Act Like a Man (SOMETIMES)

...there are still times when a woman expects some old-fashioned, testosterone-fueled male behavior, when you can feel free to let out all the clichéd swagger you’d normally suppress as a modern man.In the age of metrosexual styling and television psychiatry, the concept of what is manly has become rather confused. Women now expect you to have a sensitive side and not to be afraid of showing it. Yet there are still times when a woman expects some old-fashioned, testosterone-fueled male behavior, when you can feel free to let out all the clichéd swagger you’d normally suppress as a modern man. Essentially, there are times when she wants you to act like a man. But when? Certainly a guy who acts that way all the time probably has some issues with self-esteem or status, but in small doses at the appropriate times, acting manly is admirable.
When Confronting A StrangerWhether he stepped on her foot in a crowded club or made a rude comment, if a stranger is disrespectful to your lady, he deserves a talking-to. Act like a man, speak up and insist that he apologize for his transgression. In most cases, the stranger will say sorry and move on. Although your girlfriend is perfectly capable of standing up for herself, she’ll appreciate that you care enough to make sure she is treated properly. Remember, a gentleman resorts to using his fists in confrontation only in extreme circumstances.
At WorkUsing the best of your masculine qualities in the workplace will ensure that you will be respected by colleagues and superiors. Stand up for yourself and your ideas. Learn how to communicate without being confrontational. When it comes time to ask for that raise or promotion, keep your head held high while you highlight your value to the company. Confidence and eloquence will go a long way to helping you reach your career goals and making your family proud.
When Dealing With A CrisisA man should take control in a crisis. Whether it’s a life-threatening event like a car accident or a matter of how the rent is going to get paid during a month when money is tight, as a man you should step up and take charge, getting everyone to work together to come up with solutions. This is no time to panic, break down or let someone else take the reins. When you show yourself to be cool under pressure, you act like a man and everyone will want you in their corner.
When Something BreaksWhen something breaks around the house, don’t just pick up the phone and call someone. A man should know how to fix minor problems without calling in reinforcements. It will save money, give you a sense of accomplishment and add another item to the long list of reasons why she loves you.
