According to Just For Men's aptly-named 'MANifesto', being a modern man is about feeling good, looking sharp and staying in tune with your health and grooming. According to its findings, a quarter of men would happily colour their grey hair, a fifth would be open to a hair transplant, a third moisturise their skin and one in ten would have a manicure. The average bloke exercises at least twice a week and over half of us check our balls for lumps once a month. Go on, you know you want to.
SORT YOUR LIFE OUT
Contrary to popular belief, 82% of British men can multitask. And when it comes to life priorities, the top five, according to the study, are earning money, staying fit, being a good dad, being perceived as intelligent, and looking good. As for essential man skills, we also need to know our stuff – a quarter of us can make at least two cocktails from scratch, 60% know the offside rule, and we cook three meals from scratch per week.
KEEP THE FAMILY IN CHECK
Being a modern man also means some sharing and caring. 39% of us speak to our mum at least a few times a week, 45% of modern dads don’t always let their kids win when playing games, and nearly half (48%) would be open to being a stay-at-home dad. Men in relationships declare their love six times a week, and the average man gives his partner an orgasm two thirds of the time. We're not all perfect though – once a week we pretend to listen to our partner when we’re not really paying attention. But if you're good at it, they'll never know any better.
