    Do you mean a "real man" by the world's standards or by biblical standards?

    The phrase "real man" is sometimes used by some to try to get others to follow certain patterns of behavior, described as "macho" or "tough" as in "real men don't _____" (blank is filled in as appropriate)

    Real men don't get manipulated that way.

    Nor do real women.

    ok here it is. Genesis 1:27. That verse says "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female He created them." So it seems simple, and it is. The only way to become a true man is by believing God created you and trusting in Him.

    I would use biblical standards: leadership but not being a tyrant; strong in character; tough but not combative; decisive but not rigid; in control of his emotions; protective of women & children; patient with his womenfolk ;)

    I think every man created by God in his image is a real man, and every woman created by God in his image is a real woman. Their reality does not depend on them acknowledging that fact, because reality does not shift to fit one's perception of it.

    I used to have a neat sticker on my truck that read "Real Men Love Jesus."

    But alas I sold the truck. I gotta get me another one of them for my new ride.
