1. A gay male who does not yet know it, rationalizing his sexual preference as fashion sense.
2. phrasal synonyms: "in a transparent closet", "flying under his own gaydar", "rafting down d' Nile", "thinking his Zima is a Guinness"
A subject of one of the following conversations:
"What metrosexual Bruce likes about dating Linda is that it doubles his wardrobe, he saves money on skin cream, and she brings home drunken guys so he can blow them."
MALE FRIEND ONE: How come Bruce is missing the game?
MALE FRIEND TWO: I don't know. He said something about "a sale at Express"...?
MALE FRIEND THREE: What's "Express"?
MALE FRIEND ONE: It looks like he's gone metrosexual. It's only a matter of time before he introduces us to a "special friend."
MALE FRIEND TWO: Aw, man. Just last week I heard him say something about how "pink is this year's fuchsia."
MALE FRIEND THREE: What's "fuchsia"?
TRISHA: Things are getting weird with Bruce. You know, ... in the bedroom....
ASHLEY: Uh, oh... But he's got such cute hair and you guys like to go shopping together. I'm sorry, sweetie. I thought - except for fighting over closet space - you guys had a real thing, there.
TRISHA: Yeah. He seemed more in touch with himself. Different from most guys. But, the other day he said he wants to "try something a little different."
ASHLEY: Oh... Like with Rick? Just tell him he has to make do with one girl at a time.
TRISHA: No. No, it's different. Um...
ASHLEY: I know. You're scared, but go ahead and do the anal thing. All guys want it. Just get some lube and make him go slow. He probably won't be that into it that much anyway, after he tries it.
TRISHA: No. I'm not afraid of the anal sex. Well, not exactly, anyway...
ASHLEY: Well, don't leave me hanging, here. What's got you so freaked out?
TRISHA: He wants me to wear a strap-on.
ASHLEY: Sure, so you just... You just... Waitaminute - a strap-on? You mean, like, for him?
TRISHA: Uh huh. I think he's a ... a metrosexual! <breaks down sobbing>
ASHLEY: Jeezus! I told you you can't trust a man with thirty pairs of shoes....
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 would never, ever own a pickup truck.
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.
"Some people think he's gay, but he's actually metrosexual."
A new name for something quite old. Men with taste & style who know about fashion, art, and culture have always existed. In past centuries, these kinds of men were in the uppercrust of society (more leisure time). Technology has enabled men with more leisure time, so less wealthy males can now fuss over their looks and aesthetics almost as much as women. An American Metrosexual is like your average European male. In France or Italy, men can be manly and work on cars and know about art and fashion at the same time. They are cool with that and don't need some special name for the less "masculine" side. In the U.S. we think men all have to be eithrt dumb gorillas or homosexuals. There is some grey area! There is an emphasis on not being pretentious in america that itself becomes a kind of pretentiousness. Men who dabble in vanity or in lofty romantic concerns seem less like men when in fact, they are probably better lovers to women than their traditional counterpart.
James Bond is very metro in a lot of ways. He aint no sissy but he has excellent taste.
A straight man who embraces the homosexual lifestyle, i.e. refined tastes in clothing, excessive use of designer hygiene products, etc. Usually is on the brink of homosexuality.
Mike has become a metrosexual after shaving off his stubble and using expensive skin products to soften his cherubic facial features.
A straight guy who’s so cool, smart, attractive, stylish, and cultured, that everyone thinks he’s gay. But he’s so secure in his masculinity that he doesn’t care.
Famous metrosexuals include Ewan McGregor, Damon Albarn, and Jarvis Cocker.
strait guys who are mistaken for being gay because of their fashion sense and hygene habits.
Most gay guys are dissopointed to find out that Zach is only metrosexual and not gay.
Sorry Zach, we love you anyway ;)
A normally straight male who possesses qualities of a gay male without being attracted to men. A metro often appreciates the finer things in life and enjoys making himself look good; be it through styling his hair or wearing fashionable clothes.
Person 1: "Is he gay"
Person 2: "No, he does dress well, but he has a wife"
Person 1: "Oh, he must be metro then"
A man who understands that women do not enjoy a smelly, dirty, nasty, sick, womanizing, egotistical, red-neck and wants to make themself look and feel good. Also understands that you can love having sex with women, and look/smell good at the same time.
Red-necks should take metro-sexuals advice and wash their body more than once a week so they can get a girl with more than one tooth.
