    Any other metrosexuals in here? I know I'm not the only one. Embrace your self-loving nonsense.

    Your 7th post and this is it? :rolleyes:

    What does it matter, anyway?

    It doesn't matter. That's not the point. Just asking. And I'm bored...

    don't worry, Lacero's just echoing edesignuk's first comment in this thread (asking whether there were any gay people at this forum)
    btw, lacero edesignuk didn't italicize "is it" and he flipped the two clauses in the 2nd sentence.

    I used to be in the closet about it. It was so annoying. Whenever I'd do something dainty I'd get weird looks from my parents. Eventually they stopped caring and I was tweasing my eyebrows without a care in the world!

    I don't believe I am.

    I'm not terribly liberal.
    I'm not really into fashion (though I have my own eccentricities).
    I would hope I have a reasonable sense of taste.
    I am hetero, however.

    I like the attention I get from being the way I am. Like, I have this attitude that is like, "Hey, ladies. I look good and I don't even know it... or do I?" So the girls think, "Hmm, that guy looks good, but he doesn't look too full of himself. Let me go talk to him." It's good.

    Right on, jew. I don't drink nor smoke. I hate drinking and smoking would only be cool if it didn't have the nasty side affects.

    I am, I am! :) Although, I need a manicure, and I haven't seen my hair stylist in a longer amount of time than any time since I moved here. :( *le sigh*

    I wear tailored suits and drink stout...








    ...does that make me borderline between metro and retro?

    Metrosexual or just RICH!?

    there's a difference between dressing metrosexuals and dressing upper-society east coast style (a la ultra preppy). I go ultra preppy alot and manytime follow GQ's rules of fashion, but I don't consider myself a metrosexual... a bit of an elitest fashion wise maybe, but definately not a metrosexual. I think all men should shower at least once every 48 hours, use soap while doing so, keep their finger and toe nails neatly trimmed, wear clean non-smelly shirts, and occassionally hit the gym or run to keep in good shape.

    how can you be a closet metrosexual? Doesn't one basically wear his closet on his person for the world to see?

    Glad to see that the personal hygiene bar has not been raised to an unattainably high level. The folks at Proctor & Gamble will be relieved to know that soap sales are likely to continue for the forseeable future. :)

    That doesn't make you a metrosexual. That makes you boring. :p You fit the description of my history teachers. :p

    Haha, there are rules? That's so ghey, OFMGLOLZ!!!1!eleven!!

    And you're right about not being a metrosexual. You could be a well-dressed, queer-eye type of guy, but if you're not shaving your body hair and don't spend $20 on a small bottle of face soap, then you're probably not metrosexual. You probably just try very hard. ;)


    Why are the standards so high around here? Should I start posting at DellRumors? :(

    Don't worry, I'm sure there will be room for non-Gay, non-Metro individuals at MR into the conceivable future. I mean, at least until Apple closes its doors down for good next year. :eek: ;) :D

    And as for DellRumors, you might have to shower a *lot* less to fit in!! :D

    A real metrosexual would NEVER post in a thread about metrosexuality.

    With the exception of myself, of course, since I only posted to point out the frivolity of such a thread subject. Don't hate me because I am right, you know I am right. YOU WANNABE METROSEXUALS!

    Real metrosexuals post in pink, not black, not white. :)

    As pink is so hard to read on these boards, most metrosexuals seem to leave or be forgotten about soon after registering.

    Pink may be hard to read, but it's the best color, so it's worth it. I have to represent my pink keyboard!

    I always thought of metrosexuals as homosexuals that like women. :p

    Most metrosexuals I know or at least what I picture one to be are jackasses.

    Simplistic, are you a jackass? :p
