What Makes a Great Man Stand Out?

I sometimes wonder what makes a man great.  It seems like he would have to carry himself in a confident manner.  You know how they say, “If you want to be enthusiastic, act with enthusiasm, and soon you will be”?  (To tell the truth, I don’t really know if ‘they’ say it, but I do.) Anyway, it’s the same with confidence.  I believe if you present yourself as a confident person, it will become your truth. Therefore, confidence makes a great man.

What else makes a great man?

He’s friendly, funny, happy, and smiles often.

He knows when a woman is asked about the most important quality in a man, she’ll almost always answer, “He’s got to have a good sense of humor.”

A great man is friendly.

A great man knows how to give a compliment.

Regardless of who’s giving it, a compliment must be sincere to be appreciated. The giver of the compliment will look directly into the eyes of the receiver and utter the words that’ll make them feel fantastic. It won’t take much, but a great man doesn’t hesitate to take the opportunity to make someone’s day.

He’s successful in the things that are important to him.

Be it his relationships, his career, or his hobby, nothing will stop this man from giving 110%. Read about ways people find success here.

Chivalry is second nature.

Gentlemanly and noble-minded, this terrific person looks out for others. In addition, he will go out of his way to treat them with kid gloves. In other words, he’s kind of like a boy scout, “…trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.

Equally important, he knows how to dance!

He’s outstanding in many ways, but he’s not perfect.

A great man will admit his mistakes and will quickly apologize if he has hurt anyone. 

It wouldn’t occur to him to cheat or lie, because it would be disrespectful to those around him.  His easy-going personality and warmth seem to encourage people to ask him for favors.  To be sure, if he can be of assistance, he will.  But, he won’t hesitate to turn you down if it’s just not possible.  He doesn’t want to become resentful towards a friend or family member because he consented to help them when it wasn’t convenient for him to do so.

A great man isn't perfect, but is romantic.
Not Perfect, But Romantic

He’s got a playful, sexy, romantic side.

A great man adores candlelight, hugs & kisses, and always puts you first. He remembers special occasions and gives gifts for no reason except that he wants to please you. Still, he sometimes forgets to take out the garbage, not to mention putting down the toilet seat. Like I said, outstanding but not perfect. And, that’s just the way I like it!
