I have to make a list of male characters from action movies, t.v., and video games that I have see recently. -Does this mean write their names?

I also have to write a bunch of other traits that men are shown to have.

This is what i have so far:
*brave
*funny
*humble
*loyal
*handsome
*courageous
*strong
*emotional
*respectful
*considerate
*independent
*adventerous
*talkative
*bossy
*jealous
*rude
*caring
*busy
*lazy
*lovable
*thoughtful
*quiet

I think this is enough.
Now it says draw a word picture of the "ideal male" -I don't get how to do that, can you please explain and help, thank you in advance:-)

  • English-Ms. Sue -

    I think you just make a list of the names of the characters.

    A word picture is a descriptive paragraph about what YOU think is an ideal male. There is no right answer. At different stages of my life, I'd describe completely different "ideal males."

    Ms. Sue, can you please edit this, thanks

    Is this good: An ideal male from my point of view wouldn't be bossy, demanding, mean, or abusive. He would be considerate, thoughtful, helpful, and really lovable. He wouldn't walk behind you, or infront of you, he would walk beside you, at every step. Most importantly, he would be caring. He would give you time when you need it, and leave you alone, if you're really depressed about something. He ought to be a little religious as well. He should believe in god and have the same values as you. He should also be romantic, funny, and he should stand up for you if you're being abused, and not listened to. An ideal male should love you dearly, and keep that companionship forver.

  • English-Ms. Sue -

    Great!

    Be sure to capitalize God.

  • English-Ms. Sue -

    Are my commas in place?

  • English-Ms. Sue -

    Ms. Sue what's another word for stand up, -like stand up for you, what's another way to say that, but in one word?

  • English-Ms. Sue -

    "Stand up for" is good. You could also use "support" or "defend."

    You don't need these commas:

    beside you, at every step
    you alone, if you're really depressed
    being abused, and not listened

  • English-Ms. Sue -

    An ideal male from my point of view wouldn't be bossy, demanding, mean, or abusive. He would be considerate, thoughtful, helpful, and really lovable. He wouldn't walk behind you, or in front of you, he would walk beside you at every step. Most importantly, he would be caring. He would give you time when you need it, and leave you alone if you're really depressed about something. He ought to be a little religious as well. He should believe in God and have the same values as you. He should also be romantic, funny, and he should have the enough courage to defend and support you if you're being abused and not listened to. An ideal male should love you dearly, and keep that companionship forever. He shouldn’t be someone whom you can’t live with, but whom you cannot live without.

    I added a bit at the end, and took out the commas you suggested to me. Can you please look through this to see If I've done everything correctly, thanks :-)

  • English-Ms. Sue -

    What do you mean by this? It would be better to take out the two negatives.

    He shouldn’t be someone whom you can’t live with

  • English-Ms. Sue -

    Is this sentence better: He shouldn't be someone who you want to live with, he should be someone whom you cannot live without.

    And is the rest of my paragraph fine?

  • English-Ms. Sue -

    I just went over my question again, and I just saw the 2nd line. It says that I have to describe not just how a man looks like, but what he values, and how he bahaves.

    I'll improve this paragraph, and post it one here 4 u to check. I have a lot of other things to add

  • English-Ms. Sue -

    Ms. Sue may I ask one more thing. Are these two different things I have to do, or is it just one whole discriptive paragraph.

    Here it is:Draw a word picture of an ideal male. describe not just how a man loks like, but what he values and how he behaves

  • English-Ms. Sue -

    Are you sure you mean this?

    He shouldn't be someone who you want to live with,

    This is all one assignment. But you may want to divide it into two paragraphs.

  • English-Ms. Sue -

    Well, there was actually a quote like that, but I'll change t anyways.

    An ideal male from my point of view wouldn't be bossy, demanding, mean, or abusive. He would be considerate, thoughtful, helpful, and really lovable. He wouldn't walk behind you, or in front of you, he would walk beside you at every step. Most importantly, he would be caring. He would give you time when you need it, and leave you alone if you're really depressed about something. He ought to be a little religious as well. He should believe in God and have the same values as you. He should also be romantic, funny, and he should have the enough courage to defend and support you if you're being abused and not listened to. An ideal male should love you dearly, and keep that companionship forever. He should be someone who you want to spend your entire life with.

    Is this better, is everything good? This post is getting a bit long so I'll start a new one at the top for my other paragraph. But, can you please edit this, thanks

  • English-Ms. Sue -

    I think the quote to which you refer -- I can't live with him and I can't live without him.

    However, I've never agreed with that quote. If you can't live with him -- then that's the end of a romance -- unless you just want a casual relationship.


    Your correction is much better.
