    I for one cannot go a day without a shower, I pluck my mono brow and clean eyebrows up slightly, I trim 'down there' and shave around the edges, I trim armpits (IMO there is nothing worse than a tuft of hair emerging from your t-shirt) and I moisterise (sometimes even tinted), body brush, exfoliate,keep my facial hair trimmed and always have a nice fragrence on.

    I'm confident in my sexuality (straight) 100%.

    I'm probably not the best one to answer this but unfortunately you don't seem like my kinda guy. I like guys to be a little 'rough around the edges', if you know what I mean. Sorry!

    Haha thats no problem! I still see myself as an 'alpha' male as it were, I'm still your typical lad. I just like to keep my appearences up. Just want a general opinion is all and yours is actually what I expect most to be

    quick, delete this post!

    I do the same except I don't trim my underarm hair or use a body brush

    What's a body brush?

    Nothing wrong with being well groomed mate. Most lads who think they're ugly are usually those who don't take good care of themselves. As long as you're well groomed and confident, you'll be fine.

    Haha I laughed out loud, it seems a 50/50 split with lads on whether they take care of themself or not. Well among my friends anyway!

    body brush is just like a bristley brush that you rub your skin with and it gets rid of the dry skin, then you shower and moisterise and it makes it all so much more effective. Skin feels so good, try it (no homo)

    There's nothing wrong with a man looking after himself. That's common knowledge. Now, a man who looks after himself and needs to confirm this common knowledge is definitely common despite it being 100% common knowledge by making a gay thread on TSR - bell end.

    You should try exfoliating gloves, I find they're way more effective than a body brush.

    I do actually have a few metrosexual friends (you'd bloody love them, they all have bodies like yours) and they're the guys that the girls lust after. And we get to swap beauty tips. Girls may say that it's a bit gay to take so much care of yourself, but girls don't want a grimy guy.

    Fair enough, I say. It takes a hell of a lot of effort to get yourself looking as airbrushed as celebrities do.

    The tinted moisturiser and the exfoliating with a body brush would put me off, but the rest is good. I'm not a fan of really unkept facial hair, and it's important that a guy has good hygeine and smells nice. I'd say that some girls will like the effort you go to and others won't.
    Out of interest though, what kind of girls are you attracted to? Do you go for girls who put lots of effort into their appearance too?

    Same actually (in a friend way) as they generally have better hygiene and are more like me personality wise.

    jealous? thought so. I just wanted a general opinion on what people thought of it on here since most my girl mates (and my girlfriend) all think its apsolutley fine. Why come in here if you're just going to ***** and whine like a raging internet nerd. Only replying to you because I'm trying to reply to everyone but mate, if you got something to say, be nice.

    Thanks, I'll give them a try! I also eat right and I think diet is like 90% part of having good skin/hair etc.

    Haha yeah I can see why, I just don't like being pale!

    Urm I go for girls that make an effort and stuff but not chav girls that make themselves orange with tan and things like that. I like the kind that take an interest in their appearence yes but not in that sense of make-up and horrible slutty clothes.
