so let me get this straight....a guy cant look good or take care of himself without being a metro?
thats weird because I always true to stay pretty well groomed and smelling nice etc but I dont see me ever being called metro, lol
I think you guys must have a different meaning for the word than what I understand it to be
To me, a metro is someone who knows and is aware of what is in style and what suits his looks best. He is also one who keeps himself groomed well, and has a very very nice smell about him...to see him you would almost think he was teh gay, until you saw how much poontang he pulled in.
"Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised" Proverbs 31:30
"As a jewel of gold in a swine's snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion."
yes you should be pissed if you want to be seen as masculine...
Short Answer: it means you dress so preppy it's almost girly.
Long Answer: Metrosexual is a word describing men who have a strong concern for their aesthetic appearance, and spend a substantial amount of time and money on their images and lifestyles. Though the term has undergone a transformation from its original meaning (a heterosexual man who appeared or acted as if he were homosexual or bisexual), current trends have seen the metrosexual label placed upon male embracing of practices usually perceived to be feminine, rather than those specifically associated with stereotypically effeminate homosexuals. Debate surrounds the term's use as a theoretical signifier of gender deconstruction and its associations with consumerism. Current gender scholars view metrosexuality as representative of the embracing of relational understanding in addition to its lifestyle and aesthetic implications. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metrosexual
i cut my nails and my jeans aren't torn - am i metro?
No. as someone else said, its NOT just what you wear, or how pretty you make youself look. its also not how BUFF you are/arent.
Its really how you act and how much importance/time you put into your personal appearance. in old fashion terms, think preppy, or effeminate man.
really has nothing to do with being well-groomed or not scruffy looking
