    Not in my experience, I see a lot of these metro guys in the gym trying to put muscle on, most give up after a few weeks.They always without fail ask me for tips on building muscle . I reckon some, not all are metro because their bodies can't take it and are girly men. Makes me laugh thinking they give off this camp attitude but secretly go to the gym as they are not happy with themselves. I wonder if going to the gym for them is like a married man entering a gay bathhouse ? Do his metro mates know he goes there to butch up? I actually don't mind the guys who are camp and proud of it however. In fact a mate of mine is a bit like that.

    I think a lot of girls see them as unthreatening and like other girls but with penis's,but I still get the feeling that many girls like muscles, Iam not short of attention, could be my confidence has increased since working out but before I put muscle on I get much less notice.

    Also .I often find that guys who lack attention and interest from women,look at other guys with girls and automatically assume that it's their physique or style that is the reason, that the grass is greener. It is far more important to be comfortable with yourself, I suspect those metro guys I was talking about have seem jock type guys with women all over them and think building muscle will get them girls. Unless you are ugly, obese or have personal hygene issues there is no reason you can't get girls either.

    It seems now that the 'metro sexual' man is what most girls go for. When i was in high school i used to get a lot of attention from girls. Im white 6ft 2 and well built. Now it seems because i dont wear skinny jeans and cry at films im not the desired man. When did this change and when will this fad fade? I thought men were suppose to be men?!
    I'm always saying this to my friends!

    I personally love tall, well -built "manly men"and yet it seems they're a dying breed It seems that so many guys these days spend more time on their appearance than I do , and so many girls seem attracted to the so called modern metro man.

    I'm always being called old fashioned, but I accept that people are individuals and can be as manly or feminine as they choose. It just seems that there are less manly types about these days and that the idea of the average man is changing. Most manly types are older, which I have no problem with.

    So it's only tall and well-built men that are masculine?

    I wonder what would happen if a guy made a similar comment about women and femininity... :rolleyes:

    Hmm, so you are implying to be metro-sexual is to be gay?

    Being gay is only, and only about being attracted to the same gender. Gay men don't have some sort of gene that makes them more fashionably sound or whatever.

    People like you who rely so blindly on stereotypes sicken me.
    Shut up ******.

    ... well, I'm bi. I am a girl. I cannot stand skinny guys (I am a size 8 and very girly) - a guy to me should be fit and definitely stronger than I am - for a guy to be unfit is not attractive (for me) because if I spend time on looking good and keeping fit to be noticed - so should the guys if they are to get noticed by me.

    However girls - girls should be definitely curvy (for me). It just shows of their shape which is the best part.

    No, of course not I didn't mean it to come across like that, I'm pretty tired.
    Being masculine is much more about having a masculine attitude and behaving in a manly way ( as oppose to behaving in a way that is typically female etc etc).

    Tall and well-built is my personal physical preference which is an entirely separate issue. It's much more important to me that a guy is manly in attitude. It just seems today that lots of girls prefer skinny and sometimes even slightly androgenous-looking guys, which I'd say is a fairly modern outlook, and the OP mentioned this in his initial post.

    Hope this made sense, I really need to sleep!
