My sister told me that guys in Japan are extreamly metrosexuals. She said that the "rich" guys wear foundation, (i believe thats what its called) and just the other night i ran in to some old jr high friends and they were wearing make up, i flipped. I myself like to look good when i go out but i don't do any of the feminine stuff such manicures, pedicures and especially make up.

I was just wondering what you guys think?

No way. What's next, lacey, frilly boxers because it make them feel sexy?

I don't know any women that desire a feminine man.

I always look at a Metrosexual as a Homosexual who hasn't had gay sex - yet.

I think a lot of American men confuse good taste, sophistication and taking pride in one's appearance with being "metrosexual."

Most women appreciate a man who takes pride in his appearance. Honestly, I get sick to death of seeing grown men running around in jeans, tennis shoes and sweatshirts with 3 day shadow on their faces and ratty grown out haircuts and raggedy fingernails. Oh and don't get me started on grown men who wear JERSEYS outside the house!! Do they think they're 12 years old?

I think many (I'm not trying to say all, because there are lazy people all over the world) European men (and many urban American men) spend a little more time trying to look stylish and sophisticated.

I remember during college I worked at a very popular, upscale restaurant/lounge and we would often get these divine European men coming in. They were impeccably coiffed, with perfectly tailored clothes, manicured nails, and beautiful skin that had obviously been exfoliated and moisturized. You should have seen the women SWOON. Hehe. Man they were nice to look at !

But makeup? Err. I would have a hard time with that one!

Hey Fat Freddy,

I totally agree. I would rather be alone than deal with a female male. I think they got their wires crossed.
