The term "Metrosexual" (Metropolitan Heterosexual) is defined by it's social psychological relationship to homophobia in it's counterpart: Rural Heterosexuality.

Isolated, these terms suggest the magnitude of personal contacts the metropolitan heterosexual (metro-sexual) encounters with lesbians and gay men represents higher altitudes of social acceptance for gay culture. Whereas, in less populated vicinities, (less people = less gays) heterosexuals will be less likely to accurately define the world entirely in heterosexual terms since they have less to compare their "straitness".

A metrosexual is a strait male who is well in touch with his feminine side who typically grew up around female siblings only. They always stay very dapper (even when checking the mail) must have a pair of shoes to go with every outfit and will always conduct themselves in a proper manner. Normally somewhat of a pretty boy who uses all the gimmicks to enhance their appearance a metrosexual can usually grab the attention away from an attractive woman in any setting. They get scoped out by guys checked out by gays and draw a certain intrigue from woman including one's with younger children. The level of respect towards woman is on a higher level than the typical male and they are willing to intentionally friend zone a woman who is physically attracted to them regardless of her appearance which is another reason why they can be mistakenly viewed as being gay.

You might be "metrosexual" if:

1. You just can't walk past a Banana Republic store without making a purchase.

2. You own 20 pairs of shoes, half a dozen pairs of sunglasses, just as many watches and you carry a man-purse.

3. You see a stylist instead of a barber, because barbers don't do highlights.

4. You can make her lamb shanks and risotto for dinner and Eggs Benedict for breakfast... all from scratch.

5. You only wear Calvin Klein boxer-briefs.

6. You shave more than just your face. You also exfoliate and moisturize.

7. You pluck your eyebrows.

8. You can't imagine a day without hair styling products.

9. You'd rather drink wine than beer... but you'll find out what estate and vintage first.

10. Despite being flattered (even proud) that gay guys hit on you, you still find the thought of actually getting intimate with another man truly repulsive.

A straight guy who can sometimes be mistaken as homosexual. They tend to have a wide knowledge in art and fashion. However, they have no attraction to men. They are sometimes said to be like a women or to have homosexual traits. Despite the fact that they're straight, they're OK with homosexuality and sometimes appaer to be flattered when asked out by one.
That kid is so gay.

Really? Why?

He carries skin and hair products and obsesses about his looks.

So? He's going out with a girl. He's metro sexual!

Why does he hug his best friend, who's a guy then. maybe he's bi.

He's probably also hetro-gay with him. After all, they've been friends for years.
