The difference between men and boys:

A boy looks good with his shirt off
A man looks good because of the way he looks at you

A boy will smile during the good times
A man will laugh during the bad

A boy goes to work because he has to
A man works because he can

A boy buys a plasma screen television
A man accumulates a library

A boy will hug you in the kitchen
A man will hold your hand anywhere you're together

A boy knows how to load the washing machine
A man knows what doesn't go in the dryer

A boy can read the grocery list you have written
A man will shop it with you, put it away, and cook anything on it

A boy will talk to you about lousy day
A man will ask you about yours, and listen

A boy will read a "to do" list
A man knows what has to be done

A boy will buy you flowers
A man will plant them with you

A boy will tell you what you want to hear
A man will tell you what he has to say

A boy will share a thought
A man will share his dreams

A boy will tell you he feels good when he is with you
A man will tell you how he feels when he can't be at your side

A boy will share intimate moments with you
A man will share his life

you missed one.
A boy runs home to mommy when his woman is mad at him.
A man moves to the garage

Wellep, from most of that, it looks like I'm a boy. :D I rather it that way too. I dunno but a lot of people grew up saying something relating to:

"A man knows what has to be done "

Which is something I really dislike. While it maybe a proper way to go about things, it's also a path of giving up on a lot of goals, ideals, and opportunities -just- to get by in life and that will most of the time end up in some form of regret or misery even. <_< I think it's better to do what one wants or feels is right; without looking back, rather then what has to be done, as long as no one gets hurt. (But hey, that's probably the same life style that makes me still a boy. :) And proud of it! ) Which brings up my favorite.

"You can't do that! You're being childish!"
"Pff. Watch me."

Ramzal, to paraphrase a Greek proverb, one should do all things in moderation, including moderation.

As far as what makes a man, I think Kipling said it best:
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
...
If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;

(exerpted the parts that seemed most appropro from Rudyard Kiplings 'If')

ram, I see what you're saying and let me add that i made the thread only because there was one made aboutwomen previously..so I felt we should get our spotlight too...

anyway

Personally, I feel that the difference between a man and a boy is not just knowing what to do or how to do it, it's knowing when to do it and doing it.

In other words, boys don't hold themselves accountable for their actions; men do. Boys don't consider anyone but themselves and their own feelings, men consider how their actions affect other people and act accordingly.

Boys take people (women) for granted; men realize how lucky they are to have someone care for them and don't treat women as sex objects or as though they're here just to serve them in some way.

Etc...

Responding to this. But apperently, I made a typo. I meant to say "it's only fair if you ladies get your spotlight as well."

You are absolutely correct! Unfortunate that it takes so long for boys to grow into men!
My personal feeling is that 25 is about the time that they start to get a clue! I know it took me till then!

You matured early, then. I know males in their 40s and 50s who haven't reached that point yet. :-)

russ like thisistofunny said some "boys" don't get a clue very early. I know most go through their 20's without it. congrads for getting a clue so early.
speaking for myself I was always very mature for my age even more so then most women I meet. but at 18 or even 21 I never considered myself man enough to handle a serious relationship(aka wife)I also don't consider myself a boy anymore but I'm only 26 also which is still young
one thing for the ladies to consider when looking for a man is "water seeks it's own level" all that realy mean's is that more mature men will want to be friends with and spend time with the like kind, both man and ladies.
