Here is my humble opinion on what makes a man:
It's the ability to make a girl's heart race with just your words. It's the ability to create passion and longing with a simple caress. It's the ability to learn from your mistakes. It's your ability to do your duty, but still be able to break the rules. It's the ability to follow what you believe in, but not at the expense of those close to you. It's the ability to brighten someone's day by doing something simple, and not wanting anything in return. It's the ability to realise that other people exist with problems, and that you are not the centre of the universe. It's that feeling you get when you wake up and finally understand that you are doing something that really matters, and that by doing it, you are helping other people be happy, while at the same time making yourself feel the happiest person in the world.
It's all these things and more. But most importantly, becoming a man is the ability to be selfless, and only when you understand this will you all be truly happy. My two cents.
Also, someone who doesnt need to use violence to make himself feel bigger and better (unless they are put in a position where they need to) and knows how to treat women with respect.
Let's face it, real men only fight, drink and eat pies.
"Only good, hard lovin can make a man"
