Real Man

What does it mean to be a real man?
Pulling out chairs,
Opening doors,
Paying for the meal?
No. It's much much more than that.
What does it mean to be a real man?
Holding her when she cries,
Answering your phone at three a.m.
Being faithful?
Yes. But much more than this as well.
What does it take to be a real man?
Defending her honor?
Putting yourself between her and the danger?
Loving her no matter what?
Yes. But more than all this.
Being a man, means all this.
But, it also mean that when you do all this for her,
You do it because you love HER.
Not what she keeps hidden with thread.
A real man does these things
Because that's what men do.
Well, that's what Real Men do.

    A man will be a real man as long as the woman is a real woman. It works both ways. Good write.
