    I just use "guy", because 18 is awkward.

    I tend to think "18-year-old boy" sounds better than "18-year-old man"; I think the boundary is about 20.

    Depends on whether you mean a technical sense or a sociological sense.
    In a literal sense I think you're classed as an adult, and therefore a man, at aged 18.
    Though being perceived as a man by others all depends on what you look and sound like as well as how you act and how you go about your life. Achieving or doing certain things can also put you in man territory.

    I think the papers would call you a 'youth' if you did something bad. If you did something good, they'd probably call you a man. I don't know why.

    You are a lady! simply because you are having to ask!

    By law if you have a penis and are 18+ you are a man.

    I often think this to myself. Right now I dont feel like a man. I have a job but still live with my parents. I guess everyone has a different definition but in my opinion being a man is about being independant making your own decisions and supporting yourself and maybe others that depend on you plus taking some level of responsibility. A man has there own place, a job and doesnt depend on anyone. So although I could technically start renting out a place which is a huge waste of money in my opinion I am not yet a man. By my definition not a lot of guys in there late teens or early 20's are actually men.

    You're a man. But I'd probably just call you a guy if anything.
