It is going to be really funny to hear every ladys opinion on this because there seems to be any interesting debate about this when I started the thread Does your SO use your (or his own!) cosmetics? This is going to be good reference for the gentlemen around here as well, so this charity! The question is just like the titled poll: do you prefer metro or macho guys? When my friends and I discussed this over lunch today, we went all juvenile (its not a pretty sight having 28-29 year olds doing so, LOL) and giggly. We also came up with some funny pros and cons so sharing your reasons, as well, would be interesting and hilarious! Let me start this off: I prefer macho guys because it freaks me out to think that a man spends more time in front of the mirror than me there was this merger and acquisition guy in my firm who spends literally half an hour in front of the mirror putting styling wax in his hair just before going out to lunch (naturally hes no longer with us) and I have been told of a metro who talcum powders his CK underwear (EEEEEPPP!). More seriously on the emotional side, after all metrosexuality is not only about appearance, sometimes Im sick of the touchy-feely thing with the metrosexuals when I discuss anything [serious or not] with them. It usually follows this pattern: yes I am so with you; you must be so devastated; are you all right, etc. because they care too much about my feelings and nothing concrete ever comes out of it when it is their critical opinion that I asked for (I suppose I have a sadomasochistic tendency preferring a man who can assert his authority telling me what to do with a clear direction, man-handle me roughly sometimes, etc). BTW, definitions (in comparison to movie characters, tried to think of US people but cant): Macho = the new James Bond guy; supposedly James Bond is now back to Sean Connerys chauvinistic ways. Metro = Jude Law in Alfie or less precisely Hugh Grant in any of his films.
