Is it just me or men nowadays have evolved into those emasculate creatures with skin as smooth as a baby’s bottom, glossy lips, tight clothes (skinny jeans anyone?), purses, nail polish and even make up? They call themselves “metro sexual” or in other words men, who look after their appearance as much, if not more than we women do. Doesn’t all this narcissism in our men lead to them losing their identity and appeal to us?
Don’t get me wrong ladies; I am not saying that men shouldn’t look after themselves. After all, no one likes the beer bellies and the smelly, unshaven types, but a man giving me advice on how to pluck my eyebrows it’s just crossing the line, don’t you think? And what’s up with those plucked eyebrows of theirs anyway? I totally agree that if a guy has 1 eyebrow to start with, he should at least try to make it into two equal parts a unibrow does seem kind of hard-lined (pun intended) but c’mon, a man with thinned eyebrows looks at the least ridiculous if not totally gay. The other day, while I was waiting for the bus I saw this guy with totally crooked and improperly shaped eyebrows. I almost called him out, “Miss, your left eyebrow is thinner than the right one”. After all, I would want someone to tell me if I did mine wrong. The point I am trying to make here is: If you want to be a Metro – go to the beautician or don’t do it at all.
I also prefer the masculine perfumes men use. Those that provide the smell of passion and sex can drive me crazy. The perfumes most of our men wear now are kind of sweet and feminine. Some call them “unisex” but judging by the effect they have on me I would call them “no sex at all”. I don’t know about you, but I am just not into kissing someone who smells of Orchids and Lotus blossoms, not that the combination of sweat and dirty socks is a preferred one either.
Clean, hot blooded and potent! Those are the main qualities a real man should possess. He doesn’t have to be the Tarzan type without any inhibitions and lack of style, but the polished nails, men purses and the pink shirts are also not a way to go. A real man should be somewhere in the middle. He should look after his personal hygiene without overdoing it. He should be rough and stylish at the same time without trying to look like a woman dressed in men’s clothes.
Overall, I think that with a good hairdo, pleasant perfume, clean clothes, sunny smile (without the lip gloss) and a little charisma any man can attract a lady’s attention. If you think that this is not enough, ok, go for the metro sexual look. At the end of the day, this is a matter of personal choice. However, what truly matters is not so much what you look like on the outside but what you have inside. If you don’t have what it takes to keep a woman, she will be able to see it, whether or not you use lipstick, polish your nails or highlight your hair. So guys, if you want to find a real woman try not to behave like one. It is never a good idea, unless you are swinging both ways.
