I think Queer EYe for the Straight Guy has been the saviour to the world lol... i dont think its correct women should be the only ones to take pride in the way they dress... wax their eyebrows etc etc.. i totally find men with back hair..bushy eyebrows.. etc etc absoltuely disgusting.. i think there should be a law that no mono-brows are allowed..ever! lol. But what do you all think? that men should be left as their natural,hairy,lazy state?:P or should they take advice from Queer Eye etc..

I like men without beard and a lot of hair on their face and chest and stuff.

Expecting men to be presentable is one thing but the feminisation of men is another. It smacks of crass commercialism and repressed lesbianism.

You love feminine men because you are either a lesbian in denial, a poor attempt at a bisexual or afraid of a real man.

Well you're out of the game then Duckula :P
So when do you want to go out Keirazbabe? ;)

Queer eye for the straight guy is entertaining, but its just a money making scheme to capitalise on the metrosexual craze. I understand the whole 'why go for a guy who seemingly can't look after himself, when you can go for a guy who can, and do it snappily dressed' thing, but sometimes it gets a little silly.
At uni, one of my former housemates used to spend about an hour and a half on his hair. He had industrial sized cans of hairspray, buckets of wax, hair dye, and a hairdryer which looks like it was taken out of the southampton uni wind tunnel. We all thought this was crazy, and a little bit gay.

Then we saw how much attention he got in clubs, pubs and bars. Which was great for him, and envy all round. Except he had a metallic sky blue MG. That IS a little bit camp.

Agree with Cliff's take on Queer Eye...entertaining and all but err...very much a money-making ploy.

To be fair I have begun to try and take a little better care of my appearance...I never saw the point, to be fair...me being an ugly git...I mean it's like renovating a really crappy piece of furniture. But a girl I know persuaded me to just do it, convinced me it couldn't hurt...figure I now look marginally less ugly...on a scale of 1-10, where before I was a 20 :p I'm now a 15 :D

To be fair acliff n Haz..your quite correct about queer eye lol.. what tv programme isnt a money making scheme? i just love the advert.. i dont know if anyone has seen it on ch4 but it goes along the lines of God put men on the Earth.. men let themselves go so God created 'queer eye for the straight guy'.. its so true lol...

Lmao ooh got the number of ur former housemate? haha :p

Ooh and good one Haz theres no point in not putting the extra effort..there are some girls who are quite ugly but beause they weasr make up.. have nice hair and take pride in their fashion etc etc they end up looking quite attractive.. theres always hope! lol

Only 5 minutes? A sacrifice I'm willing to make. I can take a hit to my masculinity in order to improve my masculinity...One step back, two steps forward I say.

Hehe. Good plan.

Then again, in my view it's a clear indication of being more manly if you can actually do something effeminate with complete comfort knowing that you ARE a man...that's my take on it anyway. I'd wear makeup if I was challenged to do it, only reason I don't is because I don't want to...not because of some societal norm or some concept of "manliness".

I mean my sister challenged me to sit still while she painted my finger and toenails the other week...and I had to keep them for a couple of days...big deal!

I knew it...it's official...all women are evil and intent on world domination :D You're going to use guided eyeliner to take over the world...:eek:

How old are you btw Haz?

Odd question, and it depends if you mean physically or mentally :p. Mentally...5. Physically, I'm 23.

It's easy for me to say I'd wear makeup if asked, though, as I know I could never be mistaken for a woman anyway :p Too ugly by far :D

When men are defined as 'pretty', that really takes away from their MQ.

Arrr....I agree with EmoPoop.....drunken is the way men should be.

The only thing I groom is my chest hair....and it's looking beautiful by the way.

I don't know, because I can be attracted to someone like Colin Farrel with the eyebrows and all that good stuff, but then also someone like Ryan Seacrest. I like guys who can look nice, but sometimes the scruffy look is hot. It's a tough call; ultimately depends on the person I guess.

As for chest hair. I kind of prefer it (but not like loads, that can just get gross), because when the lights are out and theres no chest hair, it's like you're with a little boy. Scary thought.

Ultimately, I say it depends on the person. I don't like super, super feminine guys, but I can like the trendy ones, or the complete opposite, construction worker type (my friend Jeff just got a job at his dad's construction company. Damn. Hot. )

Being feminine isn't saying your gay. My step-dad is feminine and he is a cool guy. He doesnt wear make up. His mom and 3 sisters did.

i just needed to add this:

i'm a psychology major, and this year some of my mates did a study on the menstrual cycle and the type of men women are attracted to. turns out, when women are ovulating they're more into the scruffy outdoorsy types, and when they're not they like the more clean shaven look.

it'd be useful info for the guys, if they could figure out when a girl ovulates lol

As far as I'm concerned I'll never be a groomed man the reason being I don't see why I should be someone I'm not for someone else. I like being a scruff, and no ones going to change that.

I do what I can to take care of how I think I look: I shave, bathe/shower every morning & try to wear nice, presentable clothes even though I don't follow current fasion trends. I wash, hang & iron press most clothes to look civil as I can. Get my hair cut every 5 weeks & stylist cleans/trims my brows, etc. Since my wife dumped me, I don't know why I care as no one ever sees me with my shirt off, but I do70-80 sit-ups every day and I am thinking about getting my back waxed. It's not woolie hairy like an ape or anything, but when I look over my shoulder into the mirror, I think it wouldn't hurt too bad to burn the $80 to have the local spa rip my back clean. You never know when/if one of my friends will ask me to come over for a swim or trip to the beach. Maybe it will help my self esteem, etc...couldn't hurt to like the way I see myself even if the girls only think of me as a very plain, old dude. at least I won't be "the hairy one".
Peace

You only say that, but in essence you believe it, too. If you doubt yourself, then of course you'll doubt what other people think. (Think the Golden Rule, with the second part the more integral clause.) If you think yourself "a plain, old dude", then yes, others will perceive it that way. Or rather, you will perceive others perceiving you that way. "The world is my will and my representation." Good ol' Schopenhauer.

But seriously, you've been through some tough times, and I'll pray for you (seriously). But the first thing you have to do, is realize that time will only tell, that passivity--in both thought and action--is not a realizing or fulfilling option in life. Everyone has to pick themselves up at some point: find something that satisfies you--YOU, as a person. Is it your daughter? Then live for your daughter. Care not for the hatred and slander that life sends to you; care only for the fact that, if your daughter loves you, and if you love your daughter, then love the world. Because she is in it. If she exists in this world--in YOUR world--then love this damn, foolish world. Because you exist, too, God damn it. You're important as well.

Make yourself feel important. Go to bed knowing that the day was done (and not in the depressing, Nick Drake way); that the sun went down, and something was FINISHED. Do something, and finish it. If something remains undone, then know that time will tell if the curtains will finally fall, or the scene will be again repeated. Don't stress about tomorrow today, because the crap that goes on today--that's enough to worry about as it is.

Keep it honest. Keep it heavy. Keep it going.

Peace.

Now i'm very picky when it comes to looks..Having a family member as a hairstylist helps that way you just want to comb your hands through their raven hair. Also men that are confident and comfortable in what they wear is very attractive. Dress appropriatly!
Oh and keep your skin and nails buffed..major sex appeal

The problem is though that with the US's new national past time being gay bashing, any guy whos into fashion and keeps himself well groomed is thought of to be gay. And by into fashion I don't mean shopping at Abercrombie and Fitch, I mean True Religion, D&G, Armani ...shit like that. Example: When I broke up with my ex-girlfriend, afterwards her friend was like well I thought he was gay anyways because of all the expensive clothes he wore. Not cool.

your right - everyone is convinced that my best guy friend is gay just because he wears nothing but abercrombie and fitch and hollister. but then again, i'm in high school and kids are brutal.


i was once asked out by a guy whose back hair kind of fluffed up over the back of his shirt.

not attractive. at all. especially since his face and chest was all hairy too, and you could see it because he wore those button down shirts.


no. shave please, thank you very much.

It's pretty funny that this thread is supposedly for girls...and it's like men talking about their grooming habits, and some psych major telling about some random study about ovulation cycles affecting whom a woman is attracted to. Just out of curiosity...

Let's say the woman is a lesbian--and she's ovulating--would she be more inclined to let a dyke eat her peach? and when she's not ovulating...then she'd be more into a lipstick-lesbi?

You're a right charmer, aren't you?

As for groomed men... the old line is true: any guy who spends more time in front of a mirror than I do has severe MQ issues. And I won't spend any more than 15 minutes getting ready most days, if that, so chop chop.

Mijo
08-08-2008, 10:20 AM
I'm very charming...but only when the person being charmed has something I want.

You are right though -- it shouldn't take a man longer to get ready than it does a woman. :D
