What Makes The Perfect Man?

Monday April 8 2013

We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley

WABers, what makes the perfect man? What skills do they need? Whether it's how to pull the perfect pint or DIY, a men's voluntary group wants to know.

Barnsley Round Table is on a mission to compile the ultimate 'men's finishing school' guide.

With the rules less clear than they were when the organisation was established 85 years ago, it wants men from Barnsley to submit their essential man skills.

Round Table UK's Cait Allen, said: "Round Table has been built around providing a network of advice and camaraderie for men aged 18-45 since 1927, and therefore our members are well placed to give guidance to men."

"But we are also appealing to people in Barnsley to send us their thoughts with the aim of using the responses we receive to produce a definitive guide to becoming an all-round modern day gentleman!"

this poem sums it up quite well i think! after all no one is 'perfect'!!! Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
To laugh often and love much,
to win the respect of intelligent persons,
and the affection of children;
to earn the approbation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends;
to appreciate beauty,
to find the best in others;
to give one’s self;
to leave the world a bit better,
whether by a healthy child, a garden patch
or a redeemed social condition;
to have played and laughed with enthusiasm
and sung with exultation;
to know even one life has breathed easier
because you have lived --
this is, to have succeeded.
