I made that exact distinction recently. I ran into someone I knew in high school but didn't recognize him. He was a guy back then, but now he's a man. I think it has to do with the head. Generally speaking, I notice a man's face is wider than a guy's. Not necessarily fatter, just wider.
I too love the word 'guy', but only when used as a proper noun (e.g. - my name). :) But seriously, using 'guy' as a generic in public sometimes gets those of us saddled with that name to turn around and say 'yes?'.
Beth, excellent observation. From now on I will whip out my protractor before giving anyone a label.Guy, you must be flattered, however, when someone says, "What a guy!"
Just you wait 'til you describe your son as "guy" because you just can't get yourself to say "man" yet....
