What makes someone a real man?  Apparently a thick mustache, an ample paunch, and unwillingness to help clean the house don’t make the cut. Who knew?

A new survey asked both men and women to name the top qualities of a “real man.”  Here are the top five.

1.  Investigating strange noises in the house at night. 

2.  Offering to carry a woman’s bags. 

3.  Handling the barbecue. 

4.  Changing a tire. 

5.  Dealing with spiders. 

OK, those things are all great skills and qualities for a man to have, but what about being a good husband, father and friend? A real man knows the importance of family, makes decisions and deals with the consequences. He accepts responsibility for his actions and words. A real man is focused and knows what’s important and what isn’t.

That’s what a real man is. Among many other things.

The survey also found that one out of three men DON’T consider themselves traditionally masculine.

70% of the men surveyed say they aren’t afraid to show their feminine side.  And of that group, 30% say they like bubble baths and baking, and 10% like pedicures and manicures.

What qualities do YOU think make a real man? Let us know in the comments section below!
