They probably spend too much money maintaining metrosexuality.

As a woman, I don't mind metrosexual men - some of them are attractive enough, even though I prefer my men more "manly." I mean - both Jude Law and Leonardo diCaprio strike me as metrosexuals but they can pull it off and still seem masculine.

Some can, some can't. My very manly, mustached Marlboro man of a husband would seem ridiculous if he started getting his arms waxed or his eyebrows shaped, or started wearing clear nail polish on his fingernails - but then, he will occasionally go get a pedicure and he OFTEN gets a massage, and he uses moisturizer on his face as well...so...there's a thin line I guess...

I think it is an interesting style, just like other styles I find iteresting (hipsters, etc.). The biggest thing to me is that I think most of these people are faking it, meaning that it's not really who they are. That's what I don't like.

People who have a different style and are real are people that I enjoy knowing.

A man does not need to be primped, Plucked and shined. I think All they need is a neat, presentable appearance with attention to details like nails and shoes. To each his own, But a bit off ruggedness is best I think.

No, I am not a metro-sexual.

Are there any "real" hipsters? The last genuine hipster I saw was Dizzy Gillespie.

Otherwise I think they are all herd-followers, trying so hard to show they aren't followers. But they really are.

I think in 2013 they are simply called young males. The idea of the metrosexual is from the mid 90s.

What on EARTH would suggest to you that they are "faking it" -- faking being a metrosexual? Why would anyone do that? Do they get bonus points or something? (From whom? )
