How can I be a manly man in Japan? 9 Years, 11 Months ago Karma: 0  
I was in the Japanese supermarket the other day and I saw something called "Men's Pocky" which was just dark chocolate flavored Pocky. when I asked the store attendant she told me that in Japan,adult men don't usually eat candy, Sweets are mostly for young people and women. Instead men eat things that are more bitter than sweet like dark chocolate hence Men's Pocky.

Is this true? Also what other actions are specific to men to make someone very MANLY MAN?

Very true. Qunli.

That and HONESTY are the most important things in life, aren't they.

Too many fake people pretending to be other than they really are, isn't there.

nobody likes a fake, and even if you pretend and meet people, you cant keep up a lie forever, people don't like fakes and you will be found out and be viewed badly, just be yourself, they accept who you are or they don't. give you some advice, you dont have to listen to it but i always say, ill be who i am act the way i want to act (dont act like a jackass....we all know the type) but be yourself and at least people will respect you for that.

I like dark chocolate!
But I don't think I'll stick to that if/when I go to japan! Such tasty sweets I saw in one of the dude's videos. Hope that doesn't make me a girly man, but who cares ... as long as people laugh ... and it's all in a positive humorous way, I guess it's ok.
