What makes a "real" man?

Sorry, guys -- a beard, beer belly, and unwillingness to clean the house do not make the cut.

A survey asked both men and women to name the top qualities of a "real" man, and 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 barbeque
  4. Changing a tire
  5. Dealing with spiders

The survey also found that one out of three men do not consider themselves traditionally masculine. Seventy percent of men said they are not afraid to show their feminine side, and 30% of that group said they like bubble baths and baking.
