Yes, he probably is the ultimate football player. But is he what we’d consider the ultimate man?
Supercasino conducted some research into this topic and asked everyday guys about what characteristics they thought made up the ultimate man!
Here’s what they found…
- 59% of men believe you should be well groomed in the workplace.
- 78% of men take pride in their DIY Skills
- 80% of men feel pressure to keep up appearances and stay in shape
- 75% of fathers say being a dad is their most important job,
- 73% of dads said, “a real man knows how to express emotional support to his children.”
- 72% of men in the UK believe that the ultimate ‘man drink’ is whiskey
We then asked them about what moments they believe transformed them from boy-to-man. First beard growth? First girlfriend? What about driving your first car? It seems the transformation from boy to the ultimate man can be signaled by almost anything!
We compiled their answers into an infographic that you can take a look at here –
