rugged and rough....a real mans man....scratching and spitting, or do you like mr. sensitive who will cry at least twice a week.always at the end of my girl and tell you when the next chick flick is coming out....metro-sexual...his hair and smell goods only leave you enough room on the counter for 1 vicky's secret bottle of lotion and you are forced to use the kid's bathroom because he takes so long..or do you like him in between?....If i have left something out, please feel free to add to it..

My husband is a real man, who likes to look and smell good, he will watch a chick flick with me because..and i quote "I know if i don't some young stud will be glad to pass you the tissues, so let's go..turn it on"...thanks baby..i mean the romance is oozing outta that one..lol..but he will usually fall asleep and i send him upstairs...lol..he is the more emotional one..not like crying..but, he's really into this marriage lasting forever..which he should be..but you know how women are usually the ones saying..come on baby talk to me..and the men who shut down...he knows when i say..Okay ryan...(or okay anybody) it doesn't mean you have won, it just means i've shut down and don't care and you can get over yourself, but he is the one that will pull the conversation out of me and make sure we don't go to sleep mad. He believes in traditional things..the man working, the woman taking care of the house, but he loves to clean..and he helps alot, he would rather me be home but he knows i love to have something for me and i love helping people so he doesn't mind me working a couple times a week. He loves and spoils the kids to bits, he is military, but he doesn't run the house like he's a drill sgt. He's the perfect mix of them all for me...i had a man that used to cry 3 times a week..i almost made him sleep in the bathtub..this is a welcome change....lmbo

My husband is a man's man. He's very laid back. He hardly dresses up (and by that I mean he rarely wears any kind of button-up shirt). Instead he just wears a lot of T-shirts and jeans.. But I love that about him, b/c he's not fussy about what he wears, but he makes sure he doesn't look gross. He wears his T-shirts so that they are kind of snug on his arms and you can see his nice muscles (YUM!).. The ONLY time I've ever seen my husband cry was when I threatened to leave due to a lot of problems we were having at the time (he KNEW I was serious) and that made me realize that he really did care about our marriage.



He does watch chick flicks with me every once in a while, but usually I watch them by myself- which is fine with me b/c I hardly get any 'me' time anyway.



He tries to spoil our son, but he also has a good balance of discipline. If our son misbehaves, he'll take something away- like tonight he threatened to take away our son's bubble bath (he would have still gotten a regular bath, just not one with his favorite bubbles- he did shape up and ended up getting a bubble bath, which made him very happy).



He's just the perfect man for me :) A mix of everything that I've ever liked in men.. My favorite thing, though, he is always striving to keep me happy in any way. Not just b/c he knows a happy wife means a happy life lol.. But I can just sense the genuineness when he does something for me and I love that- even if it's just him doing a load of dishes when I'm in pain.

Hm..depends what band he's in, he can play anything. Usually it's a straight blues, 3 piece. Right now he's in a band that does some originals,John Mayer, Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder, Grateful dead, things along those lines. He plays lead guitar and he's a bad mother fucker at it.

I like my man thoughtful and insightful.
I like his intellect to match my own.
I like him handy even though I am handy, I like to be taught by him.
I like him to be sensitive to others feelings, in touch with his own but not a blathering idiot everytime some emotion comes over him.
I like my man loving and gentle with the kids and animals.
I like my man to use a soft voice but have a hard one for use when needed.
I like my man to honour our differences but not make them defining.
I like my man to be supportive of me but not opposed to telling me when I am wrong.
I like my man to want to be with me but not need to be with me.
I like my man with his shirt off, working in the yard or on the car.
I like my man's face hairless. lol
I like my man's face between my legs lol.
I like my man.
Actually I LOVE my man. He is everything and all things. He is my partner and I love everything about him. He is a perfect mix of all men.
:)

Man's man for me please. My husband is definitely a man's man. Crying is reserved for death and loss or anguish. He does not cry over movies. They are pretend he says..lol. He works harder than anyone I know, is SMARTER than any man I know and more capable than any man I know. I think matched intelligence is important in a man as well. I could not be married to a gorgeous idiot.

Hey, that sounds like mine! Only we're still working on emotion control, lmao. I need to express myself more and he needs to tone it down a bit... Imo, the ideal man is beautiful and mute. J/k.... maybe

I like cocky guys that are hot and know they are hot and know what they want. A "tough guy" that can handle his own. What i cant stand is a man with soft hands and long finger nails and a man that doesnt know how to do man stuff like fix the car, mow the lawn, fix stuff in the house those kinda things.

In another city!



*Edit. Ok I was going to leave it at that but that's not nice. I tend to be attracted to the pretty boys...but I realized after some very bad relationships that it mite not be working for me...then I went totally to the other end of the spectrum and went after the bad guy look...that didn't work out so well either. An ideal man would look like a mans man, be able to protect but be sweet and funny...a little romance wouldn't hurt but I want to be put in my place when I am wrong

Emma, my husband does the same thing. He refers to me as the 'boss lady'. If a friend of ours asks if he could do this or that, my husband says, "let me ask the boss lady or my boss". Sometimes they don't clue in and they say, "what? why would your work care?" "No my wife, you idiot." hahaha

Hahaha, Tah! My husband grows out his beard for me, too when he's got a 4-day or is on leave.. It is quite nice :)

And surprisingly, my husband can lift me still. He used to when we were dating, but I was much smaller then.. But the man is strong.. MMM!

Oh, and I LOVE it when he lets me sleep in on the weekends. He'll get up with our son, feed him, play games with him, watch football with him if it's a Sunday. And he tries to make sure Liam doesn't wake mommy if I had a sleepless night. And then there are the times on the weekend when I'm just waking up and he'll bring Liam in to say 'Goo' morning, Mommy! I love you!' and he'll give me a big hug.

And lately, if I've had a long, tiring and painful day and he has to go somewhere after work, he'll rush home to pick up our son so he can go with Daddy and it gives me a nice little break.

I'm glad you started this, Tah.. Sometimes it's hard to remember just how much someone does for you until you write it all out. My husband really is an amazing man.. Couldn't be happier..

I like... man men. I like how my husband is. He has the man cave (the shed) and pisses off to it most of Saturday by himself and does the yard work without being asked. Double pluggers are apparently shoes. BBQs and drinking at friends houses will always win over going out. I am known as "the boss". I've seen him cry but he doesn't make a habit of it. He's great with Logan and will tell me to go take a nap and look after him most of the day if I fall asleep good. The list goes on.

My mum calls him a renaissance man because he does a little of everything. He's a fantastic musician (plays trumpet, bass, drums), used to drag race for a hobby, likes manly outdoor things like motorcycles and fishing and hunting and camping, enjoys watching So You Think You Can Dance and Glee with me (rofl), is handy around the house and with the vehicles, enjoys gourmet cooking, has no problem sharing his feelings when need be but isn't excessive about it. It's a nice mix. He is definitely more rugged in the looks department. Big shoulders, large head (which made birthing the child that takes after him fun), tall. Does not wax his hairy chest. Hahaha.

tall, if he wasn;t tall i wouldn't even look, nice manners, and clean can't stand men who think it is ok to stink and be grotty, getting smelly and grotty is ok but staying that way is not;...and being able to play the part- ie gentle man to me when out to dinner, (not so much in the bed room) nice to nanna, watch the footy and cricket and have a beer with the boys, and play dollys with the babies, i guess a man for all seasons..but no matter what wonderful attributes he has if he is under 6 i just wouldn't notice him.

I'm glad you were able to go out Dana! I'm sure the fact that you were there was a treat for him as well. =)

@Bonnie-He seriously looks like a whole different person when he shaves. He had to get a photo I.D. of with facial hair because he shaved everything when he got hid new license and some people thought it was fake.

Had to give you a "nice" Sara, since CoM doesn't have "like". I actually just got to go out both Friday and Saturday night to see him play, I haven't done that since before our son, over two yrs ago! It was awesome.

A manly man can cry. Mine actually cries a lot, though he'd die if he knew I told you. He doesn't cry over sunsets or stuff like that...but when someone he loves is hurting. In the past month, he's cried over his best friend's divorce and his aunt's death. I think it's a sign of strength and confidence that he can show his emotions.

I love a MAN. I don't want a man who is too sensitive but, I think that just depends on each person and what they feel is sensitive. I don't mind a man who cries (rarely), I just don't want a crier all the time.

What I like in a man: my husband can pretty much do anything, he's trust worthy, he's sweet, he works hard, he is the best father and spends so much time with our son, he has been wonderful through any times of hardship (especially right now), and he's a musician ( big plus in my book) I have honestly not met a better man -EVER. We're at 14 yrs and going strong still. ♥

[deleted account]

I am all for the mans man! A certain amount of scruff is super sexy, it freaks me out when my hubby decides to shave instead of trim his face. I love a man with substance, scrawny men are a total turn off and I don't much care for the super sensitive type or pretty boys.

My hubby has only cried twice in front of me, he watches chick flicks and says it's because I want to but I think he actually likes them. He's a great Dad but can lay down the law when he has to. He smells clean but doesn't put on all the other smelly crap because he knows I don't like it. He always tells me what I cook is delicious even though some of it has turned out pretty bad.

[deleted account]

I like MY man. ;)

He is very manly...Mr. Fix-it, jack of all trades, type. We typically never have to pay a mechanic or repair man. He has no licenses but has worked for a plumber, electrician, and mechanic. He's also a paramedic and RN. So we're pretty much covered on any and all emergencies.

He doesn't take crap from people. If he's not happy with something, he'll let you know and you better fix it. Definitely has a backbone. He works in a prison as an RN. His boss has told me that the inmates don't try to pull stunts (fake heart attacks to get out of the cell, etc.) on his shift like they will on the other shifts...lol.

HOWEVER, he is very gentle. In fact, that was the FIRST thing I noticed about him when we met. He genuinely cares about people and will go out of his way if you need something and he can take care of it. One example: An elderly widow we know is having a plumbing issue, he'll go fix it even though he has to work the night shift and hasn't had any sleep.

So, to sum up...I like that I have a man who is not scared of hard work, is very self-sufficient, won't let people take advantage of him, and is truly compassionate. ♥

my perfect man is the man I have , blonde , masculine , he is such a blokes bloke he has a great body and defined muscle ( but not too much ) I LOVE the smell he has when he has been physically working hard and comes home , he is fiercely loyal ,genuine , passionate , empathetic , caring , courteous , intelligent , funny and an amazingly natural father , he loves me for who I am and doesn't want to change me , I know he would do absolutely anything I ask of him but I don't exploit that I just appreciate it .

If my boys are half the man their father is they will be great men .

I like the man I'm with! He has all the qualities of what my ideal man is! He's sensitive when he needs to be. He's caring and sweet and very understanding ecspecially with the kids! But he has a rough side. He knows how to be stern and how to handle any crazy situation we're handed!
He loves me and shows me everyday! He leaves little notes on the bathroom mirror for me! He sends me sweet texts throughout the day as well!
He likes to look good, but prefers to wear a hat, jeans and tshirt if he could!
He loves my smile and will watch chick flicks with me even though I refuse to watch his sci-fi movies!
Hes pretty much my soulmate! :)

Someone sensitive, but not so sensitive he doesn't have a backbone. Someone who isn't going to sit there and argue about every little thing.
I want him to be fun, have a sense of humor.
I want him to be HIMSELF.
Being affectionate is a big plus.
Someone who understands what ME time is, and is good with kids.
Good Hygiene is a must.
Non-drinker, non-chewer
Am I looking for Mr. Perfect and being unreasonable?
