10 Things To Love About Men.

Women as a gender get an awful lot of love from men and women alike. But rarely do men get to hear the voice of appreciation. I guess many men don’t really want it, or are indifferent to it. But, for those to whom it will make a difference, here are 10 things I love about men. They aren’t demands or my requirements, but things I have noticed about men in general that I really like.

1: Men are safe.

Starting with a big one. Whatever the media tries to tell you, men are safe. Yes, they are more powerful than you. But if a man attacks you, who is more likely to defend you? If you’re walking down the street at night with a friend, who do you feel safer around? Most men will not hurt you. In fact, most men will defend you and defend you well.

2: Men are generous.

Men are always eager to give to children and women. They will voluntarily take on children that are not biologically theirs, they will let you have the last tub of cream at the supermarket, they will hold the door for you, they will give you money for a bus home, all without expecting anything in return.

3: Men are calm.

They rarely if ever have emotional outbursts and when they do it’s usually very small compared to how bad the situation got. Men don’t break down and cry, get angry and shout or get excited and run around anywhere near as much as women do. And that’s refreshing.

4: Men are paternal.

Again, in the face of what the media says, men are generally amazing fathers. They are willing to go the extra mile for their kids, to welcome a child from a woman’s previous relationship, to protect and help children that are lost and scared. If it weren’t for how much paternal instinct is demonized and misrepresented, men would be as eager to protect and care for children as they are to protect and care for women.

5: Men are to the point.

From my observations, men hate to leave you hanging. They will be straight forward to you, say what they know, think and feel and will leave it at that or let you have your say. The only time they hold things back is when they believe it could harm a preexisting relationship more than it could help any parties.

6: Men are easygoing.

Men don’t take themselves or anything too seriously. They will engage in banter with each other and not at any point stop being friends. They will take an event that a woman may find mortifying and within seconds find the hilarity in it. They enjoy being relaxed and comfortable and will joke about anything once they’re sure they won’t be crucified for it.

7: Men are hardworking.

All animals are naturally lazy and the human male is no exception. But men prioritize completing a task rather than finishing the day or botching something. Men will work very hard to make sure something is complete to the best of their ability, rarely procrastinate and rarely if ever hide a badly done job.

8: Men are forgiving.

Men seem far less likely than women to hold onto past trespasses. Once the matter has been discussed and made right, men just let these things go and return to how they were before. They will never be brought up again.

9: Men are careful.

Back to the point of physical strength: men are amazingly strong. Women, pound for pound, can only recruit about 65% of the strength men can. Women are usually also lighter and less muscles than men, due to dieting and lower testosterone. Yet men very rarely hurt women. Even when a policeman is physically restraining a woman who is acting out or when hitting a woman was an appropriate response to a meltdown, men rarely cause women a quarter of the harm they are capable of. And, as point one states, generally they won’t even hit us to begin with.

10: Men are lovers.

Men love incredibly deeply and genuinely. They want the very best for everyone they love, from their children to their parents, from their lovers to their best friends. Men aren’t miserly with their love, they love freely, they love fully and if they love you they throw themselves into making your life better with as much energy as they have to spare.

And those are ten things I have observed about men (in general) that I love and think are brilliant.

TTFN and Happy Hunting.

  2. Points 1-9 apply to all men. Point 10 applies only to alphas until women are ready to raise a family or need financial help. Betas aren’t even visible to most women, unless the women are in the Beta Bucks phase and ready to raise a family or need financial help. Even then, women tire of betas, typically after 7 years.

    Remember, there are three sexes: alphas, women, and betas.

    • But Betas do love genuinely. It’s how they get so hurt. However misguided they are, every man from the White Knight to the “I hate being an asshole” guy, from the cold Alpha to the basement dwelling Omega, when they love someone, whether it’s a woman, a child, a relative or a friend, they want to give that person the best. That person may not always see it, but when you watch closely, the vast majority of men, if not all men, love whomever they love deeply and want to give that person a good life.

      • That’s true. But on a biological level, they love women deeply and want women to be happy. They are misguided and tend to misjudge women, try and put us into NAWALT boxes and have high expectations of us in areas where we’re not really accomplished, whilst undermining those feminine traits that are beneficial and complementary to men. But it still comes from a place of love, like an overbearing parent or a too-relaxed friend. Just because someone loves you doesn’t mean they are doing you good.

        If Betas only loved women for what we are not, then they would lose interest in us after discovering what we are. But they are just as capable of loving women for who and what we are and when they know how to and have got over the deception, they love with the same intensity.

  3. it’s like i’ve been saying to people for a while now, when people complain to me about men being brutes or go on about ‘toxic masculinity’ i always say “For every bad man, there is a good man willing to go to the ends of the earth to stop him!”

  4. If a woman really needs defending, a man ought to defend her. But too many White Knights are out there attacking other men for no good reason–especially when men expose feminism and its evil. White Knights are “toxic masculinity”.

    • True though that may be, the fact that men deep down want to protect and care for women and children is definitely a loveable quality. The mind that goes with it can change perception, but so can the recipient. I’m more than happy to trust men with my genuine wellbeing and when I must be somewhere dangerous, am happier knowing that there is a capable man around.
