What Makes You Feel Like A Man? Being Comfortable In Your Skin, Fatherhood Or Buying A House?
Guys, at what age do you feel most like a man? And what makes you feel that way?
We’re not talking about being able to get served in a bar. We’re talking about being a real ‘grown up’ guy with responsibilities. We’re talking about being the man.
While most teens growing up think that manhood comes at 21-years-old, for many guys it’s not the case.
In fact, a new survey shows that 82% of guys don’t actually feel like ‘fully-fledged’ men until they hit 32.
Transforming from a boy to a man is, according to most, dependent upon a lot of things. But it mainly boils down to being comfortable in your own skin.
Most men feel ‘at their peak’ when they hit 30-years-old. They’ll put more time into their appearance to boost confidence, spending over four hours on grooming and an hour working out every week.
Additionally, 7% of men spend up to £1,000 every year in a bid to look and feel good. It’s pretty important and is valued highly by most.
The study found that the top ten qualities of becoming a man are:
1. Being comfortable in your own skin (39%)
2. Becoming a father (28%)
3. Financial stability (25%)
4. Being in a committed relationship (25%)
5. Owning a home (25%)
6. Getting married (20%)
7. Knowing how to shave properly (14%)
8. Reaching career goals (10%)
9. Being well-travelled (8%)
10. Owning a pet (2%)
Additionally, 40% of British men strive to accomplish all of their lifetime aspirations by the age of 35, says the research by Dove Men+Care.
Meanwhile, one in four Londoners expects to achieve them five years earlier than the rest of the nation, before 30.
