I don’t understand this debate about whether it’s “okay” to be a metrosexual. It’s not like there’s some kind of “natural kind” out there in the world corresponding to metrosexuality, guys — it’s just a cute social label, and you can draw your category boundaries however you want to. I fall farther on the “retrosexual” end of the spectrum than the “metrosexual” end myself (e.g., I dress plainly and go to a barber…), but I’m very curious to hear tips from people like SSI; I’m sure I’ll learn something and maybe find an easy way to increase my attractiveness in the process.
Please :donatecar to Thunder's Place to keep it running.

You can bet your ass I’ll will get back to this thread but I dont have the time to respond right now! Busy day ahead of me. :D Great idea Ike! :up: Its about time somebody made a whole thread for this! :)
I take good care of my appearance and stay in shape because I want to be attractive to beautiful women. And for me, it works. I look good. I’m a 45 year old guy who looks like he’s in his early thirties (except right now, after all those pints last night). I hit on, often get hit on, and often get laid by very attractive women.
Much of that is the result of attributes unrelated to appearance: I’m charming (if I do say so myself :cool: ); I’m a good conversationalist; I exude a lot of sexual confidence; and, I adore women — and they can tell. But I’m also apparently physically attractive enough to ocassionally compel beautiful women to jump my bones.
That’s because I take care of myself. I saw how haggard my older brothers looked like at my age, so I know I can’t rely on genetics to stay attractive.
It’s not about obsessing on looks. It’s about knowing what women want. Talk to them. Check out what they’re looking for when they post personal ads. Most want guys who are fit, take care of their appearance, and who care about how they smell and feel. That doesn’t mean being effeminate— most straight women want a man. Masculinity and a desire to look good are not mutually exclusive concepts. If a guy trims his uni-brow because he thinks it makes him look better, fine. If he wants to get laid, he’s really just being pragmatic.
I accept myself. I accept the fact that I am a horny guy who wants to get as much living out of life as possible.
That would make a good preface to a book.
Well, maybe I can do the preface and then Supersizeit can write the book.
Hey, anyone got a recommendation for a over-the counter teeth whitening product? Please don’t say I need to give up coffee.
I think the best over the counter is Crest Whitestrips Premium, but I am also very interested in this product offered on thane.com called the Klear Action Whitening Light that completes the entire process in one hour using a hand held light to activate the whitening gel.
You guys scare me! I am not so scared of the guys with bigger dicks or more money. It is the metros I catch my wife sneaking glances at. At some point I will have to trade in the excesive junk food, caffine, alcohol and shit, shower and shave in 15’ mentality for this more highly evolved sort of behavior.
I recently got Rembrant 2 hour white at Fred Meyer and have been pleased with the results. It is a gel that comes with trays, and you can use it a number of times in one day which I prefer to having to use it every day like the strips, I just did it while sitting home watching TV one night.
My only complaint with it and every whitening product I have used- It only gets the front 6-8 teeth, which is all people see when you smile but when I examine my teeth in the mirror the back ones look even more yellow in contrast.
I’d also suggest getting a good whitening toothpaste- I’ve used Colgate and sensodyne and been happy with both.
PS- you can have the hot women in there 30’s but leave the hot women in there 20’s for the us guys in our 30’s… screw that- leave them for me :)
Ike-just do like me for the coffee stains:
Every week or so, I just take out the teeth and run them thru a cpiple of cycles in the dishwasher (top shelf of course)

I have yet to meet a women who liked metrosexuals in a sexual manner, and I meet a lot of women. There is a difference between hygiene/looking good and being a metrosexual. Metrosexuality I deem a detriment to manhood and being a man - standing up for yourself, pride, readily aggressive if the moment calls for it, powerful, assertive and with enough honor/compassion to put your women, family and friends before yourself. …hrmm, seems the older I get the more republican and less liberal I am lol. Anyone see the South Park on metros?

The amount of time a man puts into his appearance is inversely proportional to pride, aggression, power, assertiveness honor and compassion? How in the world did you come up with that? Women tend to put more time into their image, do you think they lack these qualities?
I always thought that metrosexual meant a straight guy that lives a gay lifestyle (body obsessive/regular gym user, into shopping for clothes/shoes and who gets facials and manicures occassionaly and buys male cosmetics. Clinique do a nice range). :)
This would describe me. I am the straightest guy on planet earth, I’m 6’1”, have a Vin Deisel physique and I dress well. It works for me…..
