Esquire surveys men to identify 'normal' male behaviors

Esquire Surveys Men To Identify 'Normal' Male Behaviors
Esquire recently surveyed a thousand men to determine which behaviors are considered normal for men in today's modern society.

The publication asked a series of questions ranging from 'do you like your job?' to 'how often do you spray tan.' (96% said they've never done it.)

So what's normal nowadays? According to the survey, the majority of men:

-only have a couple of friends who are women
-own 3-5 pairs of jeans
-only sometimes enjoy watching sports on TV AND
-would rather play golf than go to a strip club


What do you think about the survey? Tell us in the comments.

I simply love any research or article that attempts to describe normal. As a graduate student of Psychology I can tell all of you first hand that the word normal should only be used as in a description of averages. Albeit, even averages that determine normal behaviors is impossible to score due to the fact that the research participants are limited. Now, let us say we could research every single male on the face of the earth.... then and only then could we describe normal.

When will men feel comfortable admitting that they cry? Men cry more than most women....it's the women who make them cry. And not for a good reason.

WOmen have too many "issues". It's just too much work !! I'd rather spend a day on a nice golf course with a good tasting cigar to be honest. Real men don't have time for BS.

Your survey is wrong. Who ever did the questioning, was probably afraid to ask a real man. Because real men are formidable and don't like answering questions...

So they took a survey of 1000 +45 year old execs who are subscribers to their magazine. Not nearly a complete cross section of American men. Because no one I know would choose golf over much of anything. The only men who have women as friends are the ones who realize they have no chance to ever have sex with that woman, which completely rules out a single guy with any self esteem.

Only sometimes enjoy watching sports on TV. I am guessing the other times their wife/gf is actually out of the house.

Golf is far less hassle! Women today are to wrapped in "themselves".....women have wanted to be just like men for to long now....men want WOMEN that are WOMEN, not men like.

I have to disagree with you. I find men too (btw, that's the way "too" is spelled) wrapped up in themselves. A man says he wants a woman who is independant, has a good job, car, house/apt. All shallow reasons in my opinion. I can dress up or down and I'm still a woman. The last two guys I dated were so egotisical and self centered. Yes, we watched NFL together. But when the game wasn't on, the conversation was all about "him", his job, his car or truck, his money, etc. Like I said all "shallow". I find men all wrapped up in themselves.

I have to agree. I cannot understand why so many women today want to be men.
