The best way I can describe my perfect type is a guy who looks like he could like other guys, but is actually into girls. If that doesn’t make sense to you, then you may have a very different type. Pretty much every guy I find myself attracted to, I usually end up questioning his sexuality. This could be considered a downfall because there’s always that question in the back of my head if he’s really into me or if wishes he was out with some dude instead. Honestly though, I’ve always really wanted a gay best friend, so this could work out for me either way.
So what are the perks of being into metrosexual men? Well, first and foremost, these guys know how to dress. I’m talking about the guys who have a plethora of button-downs in every pastel shade imaginable and a collection of leather band designer watches (because he KNOWS he can’t wear a black watch with his perfectly tailored navy suit). Another perk of dating a metrosexual dude is that he will likely take just as long as you to get ready, which means more time to perfect your contoured face and curl your eyelashes (because it’s a master of art and the process can’t be rushed). He wants to take 15 minutes to decide which pair of khakis to wear to brunch? Fine by me. Bonus points if they’re cuffed to show off one of his seven pairs of loafers.
Metro guys make great wedding dates too because you know he will have impeccable taste and is going to look ~sharp af~ for pics. Aside from having a wardrobe that looks like it’s straight out of a Ralph Lauren catalog, these men are typically very hygienic too. This means there’s a good chance he will have great dental hygiene, a perfect head of hair, and be doused in amazing smelling cologne.
As if their great hygiene and fashion expertise aren’t reason enough to love these men, sharing the same taste in TV shows, movies and music is just the icing on the cake. You don’t need a guy judging you for binge-watching HGTV all day. You need someone who’s down to watch reruns of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and agree with you when you’re blabbering on about how Khloé is a boss bitch and Kendall is just an absolute queen. And you’re certainly not going to give up Bachelorette Mondays, but if he wants to bring over a box of Franzia and join you, then more power to him (and trust me he’ll want to).
Metrosexual men almost always have great (girly) taste in music too. I once hung out with a guy who had a reel of Shakira music videos playing back to back…which freaked me out a bit initially, but the more I thought about it, “She Wolf” and “Hips Don’t Lie” are absolute jams, so whatevs. Total respect. What we need in life is someone who will be unashamed to get on stage and sing along to Justin Bieber songs at karaoke night.
Overall, having a metrosexual type usually just means you’re attracted to guys who are comfortable and confident in their sexuality and take the time to put effort into their appearance. So what’s wrong with that? If you’re not into it, fine… more metros for me. .
