Difference Between Guys and Men ~
A lot of people use the terms “guys” and “men” interchangeably. This irks me to no end. Although most men exhibit some “guy” traits and vice versa, I think there is a distinct difference between guys and men. The following is my opinion of the differences between guys and men…
Guys are fun-lovers who like hanging out with other guys. They tend to call these other guys their “homeys” or “bros.” They like to go to bars and clubs, watch sporting events, especially ones in which they can yell at the television set, and drink lots of beer. Now, don’t think that I think this is a bad thing. I do believe that a certain amount of comradery is a necessity in our social lives for being more well-rounded and living healthier lives. Most true guys, though, would rather do this than develop a healthy romantic relationship, or if they do develop such a relationship, their “bromance” usually interferes with its development and the relationship dies a painful death. Also, guys have a tendency to lie to cover up some of their mistakes. These lies usually lead to more lies to cover up the original lie, and eventually leads to the truth being discovered. Then they get into more trouble than they would have had they told the truth to begin with.
Men, on the other hand, always tell the truth. To quote Eric Church, “If I shake your hand, look you in the eye, you can bet…it’ll be the truth.” That’s the man mantra. Men also develop not only a healthy relationship but usually several relationships. Yes, some of them still might not be so healthy. But, the biggest difference between men and guys is responsibility. Men take it, guys don’t. Guys will never admit to anything being their fault. If a man makes a mistake, he admits to it, then he owns up to it. A man will do what he needs to to make the situation right. A guy would rather leave it alone or just walk away.
So, there you have it – the difference between guys and men
Now that you know the difference between guys and men, ask yourself – Is your guy a man, or is your man a guy?
