You will find a hell lot of prescriptions on what you should have to be a man. Some may require you to buy things, while the other may focus on expanding and investing in the education. “We can do anything” is what embedded in every man’s mind, but “how to do” is still an unanswered question. While a number of “him” know exactly what it takes to be a full-rounded man, there are some, who still struggle with knowing these things every man should know.
Let’s sum it up!
1: Learn to tie a Tie
Note it down. It is the most important thing you should know if your life revolves around formal business meetups and frequent office engagements. Head straight to either the YouTube tutorials or a number of blogs related to this.
2: Change a tire.
Sometimes, we don’t have the luxury of having someone stop by, in order to help us in dealing with a flat tire. Or imagine what would you do if a hot chick asked you to help her out? To deal with these situations, you must know how to change a tire. Which is, quite easy!
This doesn’t just include putting on your karate shoes and whipping a*ses. Fighting means you should be able to defend your own self quite maturely and easily. And if they don’t listen, well, it’s time! And that’s why a lot of us tend to grow discontented and disappointed whenever we find ourselves in loving relationships. We hype love up too much in our minds to the point where we develop unreasonable expectations for it.
4. Know how to sew
Yes, it’s for you. You, yes you. Who still believes in using super glue. Please do know there exists a perfect solution for this problem rather super gluing the buttons immaturely. We are always taught to examine love from the extremes – how it can either be extreme elation or extreme tragedy.
5: Talk your way out of everything.
Being a man, you should know how to deal with any such unexpected situation. Take a step forward, and talk it out. Whenever we hear the stories of love, we always tend to focus on the grandest and most romantic aspects of it. We are almost conditioned to believe that love is always going to be an endless series of thrills and high points.
6: Read quickly.
To save you from drowning in the sea of embarrassment while you read something that other find less popular, you must know how to quickly move your eyes to read.
7: Keep a well-stocked bar.
Even if you’re not planning to throw a party this weekend, have your bar well-stocked. You never know who might drop by. We fail to recognize that a huge bulk of what makes love is the grind of it all. Love is a marathon and not a series of sprints. Love is something that is continually worked on and consistently built on every single day that two people are together.
8: Flower purchasing.
Roses aren’t the choice always. You simply can’t hand over roses to everyone. Every man must know how and what florals to choose from, depending on the occasion. In fact, a lot of what makes up true love are the little things. It’s not always going to be the grand romantic gestures or the dramatic moments. Love is mostly composed of the little things and habits that couples practice with one another on a daily basis.
9: Manage stress
Yep! Having a Y chromosome, you are already on a path of having a lot of stress in your life. But it’s not always about worrying. Every man should be able to deal effectively with stress. He should know how to manage things.
10: Do the laundry
No. It’s not something that is to be done by women only. Even a man must know how to do that unless you’re all okay with paying the hefty laundry bills. We take what we see in the movies; the stuff we read about in books; the kind of feelings that we hear about in songs, and we try to apply these feelings into our lives.
11: Break a fight!
If you resort a fight or even help in doing so, it will present you in a more mature and responsible way. This could fill up your manliness tank once and for all.
12: Be a gentleman.
Now when that’s being said, don’t just try being one. Build those qualities, show some chivalry, and you will surely transform into what is called a true gentleman!
