Being a man is so hard to explain. For me, what makes a man man is that man itself in its true essence. The true essence of man is that he comprises of two major classification. One is as human being and the other is spiritual being. Human being composed of flesh and earthly belongingness like body and other material being unlike spiritual being composed of our inner, deep, undescribable, msyterious existence like feelings, emotions, thoughts, and soul.

What make a man a man, can be evaluated in his action. A man decide based on the 3 consideration, Considering his self/Considering other and family/considering righteousness.He faced problem with confidence and never lost his guts. For me this is the essence of being a man

for me what makes a man "man" is that as you have said it composed of body and soul,but the most significant of being a man is that man has the freedom for its own live.And the freedom to choose what is right and wrong!!But the real question is "WHAT MAKES A MAN TRULY HUMAN?"

what makes a man a real man or what you are trying to emphasize is what is the difference of a being man from being a boy. simple.. its how he deals with adversities. being a man is not measured of how big your arms and chest is, how good looking you are, or how strong you are its how you stand for your decision and how responsible you are.. i think that what makes a real man for me..

Do you mean a 'man' or a 'human'? As a woman, I can tell you that for me what makes a man 'a man' is his personality, his voice, his way of speaking, his behavior, his body and it's just that feeling I get from him that makes me feel- 'oh, it's a man!'... some guys just don't seems to have that. (: If you meant what makes a human a 'human', then to me it's his deeds. A human is someone who is considerate of his enviroment, of the beings around him, that does his duties, that treats others the way he wish to be treated and maybe even better. A human is someone who was given power over other kinds of beings, and that should use this power in order to improve the life on this planet. (:
