2. Wear proper cologne

A man should know the correct way to put on cologne. I don’t want to assume you don’t know that you have to apply a cologne when you get out of the shower to clean dry. Do not spray cologne into the air and run through it.

3. Build a fire

Whether you’re in the wilderness or like to go camping, to build a proper campfire is a skill a man needs to know. When you get to the fireplace, you don’t need to fumble because you already know how to make fire with sticks.

A man should know when jumping a car, which cable goes on first and if you can ruin your car by giving someone a jump start. How to change your car tire and apply other minor fixes by yourself, are excellent skills every man must-have.

7. A man should know how to cook

What did you hear about men who cook? My wife said they’re the most attractive kind of men.

A man should at least know how to cook his favourite meal or be able to make that of his partner. It is amazing and romantic when you jump into the kitchen and make her favourite meal before she wakes up in the morning. Most women like to be served their favourite meal in the morning while on the bed, be that spouse who brings romance to the kitchen.

Final words

Furthermore, every man should know the best ways to be good with money. There are a lot of personal finance blogs that will give you a clue on how to handle money, become financially free and have a better posterity.

How to comfort a crying woman, manage stress, or help a hangover lady would be nice if you really know how to do that. More importantly, take care of yourself and personal hygiene, have good breath and keep a smiling face.

Learn anger management, practice yoga and meditation when you have alone time and also make learning new things a daily habit. Hit the gym when it deems good for you to do so. Daily exercise keeps you fit, and far away from the doctor.

What other things do you suggest a man should know how to do regardless of stage or his age to make the most out of life?
