THE CONFIDENT METROSEXUAL ALWAYS . . .
Puts others at ease
Takes responsibility for his actions
Is aware of his sexuality
Enjoys looking his best
Is open to spontaneity
Never loses control
Tells the truth
Is able to laugh at himself
These are the attributes of what was once commonly called a gentleman. Men would do well to learn these few simple rules without adopting the whole Metrosexual mindset.
Women are just naturally attracted to men who observe The Rules of Etiquette, but once they slip over the edge to primping and flamboyancy, they've lost their appeal.
I've got a wide range of interests that are not particularly mainstream. I am an unrepentant techno geek, linguist, video game enthusist, and M203 40mm grenade launcher wielding maniac who is bored stiff by professional sports and modern art. If I get flak from other guys becuase I'd rather discuss Chinese history than college basketball, I'm okay with that.
It's pretty clear to me that being a Metrosexual is more like being a 14 year old girl who's trying to fit in with the other N-Sync loving teens than about being yourself.
I can respect anyone who does their own thing, even if it's kind of off the wall. Being 'Metero' seems to be about conformity and elitism, which are not particularly desirably traits in my book.
