Modern enlightened, sort of rennasance man. Secure and confident, capable and cool, typically well educated and stylish. Heterosexual with a twist, not gay by any means, but he probally has a few gay friends, and can easily be mistaken for gay by rednecks and jock types. The only straight guy in a fabric store or antique shop who is not being dragged there by a woman.
"You're so metrosexual"
by Merlyn February 10, 2004
heterosexual male who appears slightly gay due to his impeccable sense of style, belief in designer hygiene, and willingness to emote. by definition, a metrosexual must be male due to the sterotype that women are usually conscientious of these things from the beginning.

An urban straight male ranging in age from late teens to mid 30's who is: good looking, stylish, fashionable, trendy, cultured, & well groomed. A metro sexual is very conscious about his image and looks in public. A metro sexual is often associated with getting manicures, facials, & massages, as well as using "products" and shopping at nice clothing stores. However, metro sexuals don't necessarily engage in each of these activities.

A metrosexual is a young, good looking urban male who takes care of his appearance from head to toe by bodybuilding, styling his hair, waxing his brows, using lotions, wearing perfume and has even considered plastic surgery. He has a keen interest in fashion, cooking, brand names, interior decorating, nice cars, especially convertibles. He's sociable, charming and always finds success with women. But he can be vain, ego-centric, emotional, overdramatic, jealous and nit-picky.

by R.J.D. September 02, 2005
A man who is emotionally sensitive and aware, verbal and communicative, physically fit, clean, has manners, smells good, and often enjoys fashion, beauty products, entertaining, and interior design. A metrosexual has a sophisticated aesthetic and often a well developed feminine side. Because of the metrosexual's expression of what are considered in the U.S. traditional female characteristics, metrosexuals are often mistaken for closeted gays.
