    Probably one who recognizes his limitations and faults and constantly works to improve upon them.
    Unfortunately understanding what those are is subjective.

    Oh oh I just watched a YouTube video on this, I have the correct answer!

    Cynical answer- an undesirable man

    Real answer- the dude that compassionately doesn't give a shit (is self interested)

  5. A man who is able to cut the umbilical cord with his mother but still retain a positive relationship is a good man.

    Being a good man is impossible. Being a good woman is easy.

    How would you respond to this, HP? Curious about your thoughts and perspective, and my brain is too mushy to formulate a worthwhile reply of my own atm.

    Oh boy :hush:
    Questions like this is how fights get started, lol


    A good man

    is a man that keeps doing the right things even when that other thing looks like more fun.

    is a man that learns to treat others with the same compassion he treats himself with.

    is a man that will sit with you when you are happy or sad and not try to fix you.

    is a man that respects the differences in others and does not gossip.

    is a man who is aware of his surroundings as well as himself.

    is a man unafraid of showing the world his vulnerabilities as well as his strengths.

    :coolerthanyoudancing:I'll think up more.....

    I'm going to rephrase this as "a man who cares about who you are and not who he thinks you could/should be."

    I'll get back to you when I have more of my own. ;)

    I think a good person, is someone who tries to find a balance in life. To try to live fairly with people, and have regard for others as well as themselves.

    I think most people are pretty decent.

    In truth, I'm very average. Well intentioned but average. And I think the people who know me, know that. I wish that wasn't the case, but there it is.
