    I guess I'm not a "real man" then 'cause I absolutely hate the taste and smell of beer, scotch, and whiskey! I agree with the top answers for mostly everything else, though.

          I just love that the men in the UK were more willing to punch their boss or colleagues than people anywhere else

          I hate beer as well, but I would agree that it is the quintessential 'man's drink'. Unfortunately, I agree with the majority in saying that the drink can reflect masculinity, I hate beer, so I always get vodka or something that can be done with something dark like Coke, or clear like lemonade, I try to avoid ridiculous, albeit funky, colours.

          I thought it was interesting that the majority of men picked 'abs' as the thing women are most interested in, even though I agree, I thought the majority would think arms.

            I agree with most answers, except the beer one. Can't stand beer

            Great survey though.

                  I agree with a fair few of the answers, but...

                  - LOL at "I'm single" being the top answer in the partner question
                  - Abs?!

                    It's funny that the UK peeps would punch people in the face.
                    Hmmm....very interesting results.

                    Cmon, seriously, you people didn't know abs were the most aesthetically pleasing thing a man could have? I would have thought that was the most obvious thing. Women love that (and money!) stuff.
                    can you commit to be my everything?

                        Yeah, that's how I feel about it. Polls like this are utter trash!

                            I don't like beer.

                            And I only have like 2-3 pair of shoes. I usually use my Dad's ones to formal events.

                            Do you think the kind of drink you order reflects your masculinity?
                            Top Answer: 51% - Yes
                            Really?

                            I agree with the majority though.

                                  I'm a straight male and I love beer. How very manly of me.. I'd go further and say it has to be bitter or ale too for the most manliest beer....

                                  Although more of a body feature than a body part, I'd say a man's height is important to women....

                                          I know they're pretty much but all my straight friends have about 10-14 pairs each one and 23 pairs don'd sound that incredible number to them! I was shocked to see that many people were surprised by it here

                                          Maybe it's because my Country itself has a "shoe" form
