There are many things that define a man’s masculinity and we are about to delve into a little bit of that.
The same way that women are universally expected to know how to cook, there are some skills that every man is expected to master.
Here are some of them:
1. Be familiar with cars
By being familiar with cars I mean, know everything. If the car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, I would expect a man to freaking figure out what the problem is. And that’s not all, a man should know how to change a flat tire, jumpstart a car, drive a manual car and parallel park!
2. Open a bottle without an opener
Small skill, but hey, imagine passing a bottle over to a man to open it for you and he ends up passing it on to another man for help? Meh…
3. Grill with charcoal
Not to set standards or anything, but if you cannot grill some nyama choma or cook at least one signature dish to save your life, you might as well buy a skirt and heels and join the mom club!
4. Know how to light a fire
If we are camping and it gets cold, I don’t expect you to start rubbing your hands! Make a fire! You’re a man.
5. Know how to slaughter a chicken
Don’t be the kind of man that sees a hen and runs away screaming!
6. Know how to approach a lady
Every man should know how to approach a lady and ask her out on a date. There’s something ultra sexy about a man that can approach a lady confidently without the fear of being rejected. We absolutely heart all the confident men out there!
7. Know how to tie a tie
Whether you sing a song that your mom taught you when you were 7 or use the knee trick to tie a tie, it doesn’t matter as long as you can tie a tie. You don’t want to be 35, attending your friend’s wedding and Googling “How to tie a tie”. Tragic!
8. Be able to shop for the perfect suit
Yes! Seriously! Every man needs a proper suit be it for closing an important deal, a wedding ceremony or formal event.
9. Know how to throw a punch
Now, we are not saying that you go around giving people black eyes and what not; what we mean is, be able to defend yourself if need be.
10. Know how to tell a joke
Don’t be the boring party pooper who’s too stuck up at the party. Be the life of the party. Know how to tell a joke. Women love guys with a great sense of humor.
11. Know how to pleasure a woman
Duh! Had to be on the list.
12. Be Handy
You do not need to call in an expert to fix everything that gets broken in the house. Get yourself a tool box and let YouTube be your guide. You can pretty much fix almost everything in the house. Takeaway, women love handy men ?
13. Being good around babies or kids
Men are known to suck at parenting but a man who’s good around kids tend to get the attention of women as they know you can give them a helping hand when they’re busy. Then again, if it’s your kid, they could do with some Daddy loving.
