How to Spot a Real Man

The hunt for the perfect man is never-ending. We want the total package – good looks, humor, wealth, great sex, and intelligence. However, statistics show that many men are not what they seem on the outside. Many of them are just little boys in a grown man's body. Immaturity comes in all shapes and sizes. Trouble happens when we assume that the exterior of a man represents the interior character. So let's talk about how to spot a real man, what qualities make them different from little boys.

Real men prioritize their mental health and well-being.

Mental Health is often a topic that is rarely discussed in men, and some even consider it taboo. However, it is one of the greatest signs that a man is a real man. Real men prioritize their mental health by attending therapy sessions, taking breaks when overwhelmed and participate in activities that promote relaxation and self-care. They are not afraid to admit when things are becoming too much for them, and they are willing to take the necessary actions to restore their mental stability. 


A Real man takes responsibility for his actions.

Immature men are often prone to making mistakes and are quick to blame others when things go wrong. On the other hand, a real man will take responsibility for his actions, make amends and learn from his mistakes. Whether it’s in his personal or professional life, he does not make excuses for himself when things go south. He readily admits when he's wrong and takes the necessary steps to make it right. 


Real men have a clear vision and purpose for their lives.

A real man takes serious the direction of his life. He has set goals that he’s working towards, and he is not just settling. He’s driven, ambitious and has a clear perspective of what he wants to achieve in his life. He knows that his vision goes beyond what he can do for himself but also includes building something that will impact the people he loves and those around him.


Real men can communicate effectively.

Communication is an essential aspect of any relationship, and a real man knows that. Unlike little boys, real men are open to communicating effectively and transparently with their partners. They listen to understand, not to respond, and engage in conversations that further the development of the relationship. They respect their partner's point of view, communicate their own, and work together to find a middle ground and ultimately, a solution.


Real men value and prioritize their relationships.

A real man knows that the people in his life matter. He prioritizes his relationships and goes to lengths in maintaining quality ones. He demonstrates loyalty, respect, and kindness towards his loved ones, and exemplifies what it means to be a good friend. He invests time, effort and resources into strengthening his relationships and holds these bonds sacred.



Do not be fooled what a man wears, or what he drives. Little boys come dress nice and drive fancy cars too. You need to look beyond physical attributes and pay attention to the character of a man. A real man prioritizes his mental health, takes responsibility for his actions, has a clear vision and purpose for his life, communicates effectively and values his relationships. By knowing these qualities, you can know what to look for in identifying a real man and not waste time with someone who will leave you broke, heartbroken and unfulfilled. Take the time to establish if he is a genuine fit to prevent heartache and disillusionment over time.

A Blog About Blogging -Someone Please Notice Me!

I've been spending some time joining social networks for Bloggers and checking out other blogs. One thing I've noticed is that a lot of people have a theme for their blog. The other thing that they have, that my blog doesn't have, is a header. I've seen so many pretty header images and catchy Blog titles. I'm wondering, "Is my blog missing something?" I chose not to use a header because I think it will clash with all the colors on my page and make everything look too busy. I chose not to stick to one theme because I have a million things to say and they come in a variety of different topics. I haven't been getting a lot of comments. So, I'm not sure if it has to do with the layout of my blog, or something else like that. I read somewhere online that for every 100 people that view your blog only 10 will comment. I can say that the social networks have paid off. Most of the comments that I received came from people who are members of those networks.

Selecting New Eyeglasses (It's Never a Bad Idea to Consider the Price)

I accidentally threw away my glasses one night, (that's so me, I had put them in a plastic bag with some snacks). That was over a year ago and I just recently took on the challenge of selecting and purchasing new eyeglasses . This is a challenge to me, because I always have a difficult time selecting the best glasses for my face shape and skin tone. Honestly, I hate the way I look in any glasses and if I didn't need prescription glasses in order to operate a vehicle, I would go without them. (I do not recommend that anyone else do that, and I'm sure my optometrist would scold me). In order to prevent myself from getting another ticket, I had to take on the task of finding some glasses that I would feel comfortable and confident in. This time around I did some online research on how to pick out the perfect glasses . I watched some videos, read some articles, figured out my face shape, and then forgot almost everything as soon as I walked into the optical shop and saw

Thursday Thoughts

I guess there comes a time when every mother has to come face to face with their teenager and let them know who's boss. Mother/daughter relationships can be difficult during these years. This Thursday's Thought: "Mother Nature is providential. She gives us twelve years to develop a love for our children before turning them into teenagers." ~William Galvin The reason behind the thought: My daughter crossed a line last night. This line crossing showed blatant disrespect and has changed our relationship forever. My daughter turned 13 in March. It's only been a few months and one of my worst fears has already come true. The fear that she would one day forget how much I love her and how much I've been here for her through the years. I've never had a teenager before and this is all new to me, but one thing I am not going to do is play friends with her and allow her to disrespect me.

...and they had the nerve to complain about a shirt that said cunt

I'm giving this guy a thumbs down for being a jerk and wearing the N-word on his shirt.

Bratz Big Kidz Music Stars

I tried my hardest to catch these dollies on sale this year. I planned to buy four. One for each of the girls. But they were selling out like crazy. My daughters just love Brat dolls. I don't know why. They have big heads, they break much easier than Barbie and they seriously overdue it on make-up. I was happy when MGA came up with the Bratz Kidz Dolls. These dolls don't where as much make-up. What I liked most about these Big Kidz, is that they are NOT dressed in slutty clothes. Although Yasmin's outfit still shows a little tummy, it is much more appropriate than others I have seen on this brand of doll. So anyway, as I searched the net for the new Bratz Big Kidz Music Stars, I could not find Sasha anywhere. I found the Bratz Big Kidz Snap-On Doll Sasha (who's skirt is way too short), but I could not find the Music Stars doll. I checked everywhere I could think of, (in the US) and found nothing. However, while searching the net I found that many stores in the UK ha
