    What some might call pride and confidence, others would call vanity. It's a fairly meaningless judgement to make.

    You're right, they're so vain. They probably think this thread is about them.

    Yeah I prefer a real man #nohomo. Guys wearing makeup is not hot at all #nohomo.

    In all honesty, I just think people are more image-conscious these days because of programs like Geordie Shore and stuff, everyone wants to "pull" and grooming is becoming more common and therefore more accepted amongst males like trimming your pubes and stuff

    What I really can't stand though, is guys that "play dumb" like girls sometimes do, dunno if they think it's acceptable to come across as being thicker than Joey Essex but it isn't cool.

    It's actually not possible for a man to be too vain.The motivation behind vanity is the desire to be attractive to the opposite sex(I'm leaving gays out of this since there is no question that gays can't be too vain).
    Thus if a mans toiletever became so full on that it began to affect his attractiveness to women he would notice and adjust it until he was at the optimum level.
    In short men do whatever they need to do to try to get the amount of sex they desire.
    Where some women err is in mistaking their personal desires for,er,rough men and their inability to acquire such men with sufficient ease with the false assumption that the less rough men are mistaken in applying moisturiser etc etc.In fact those men are playing the percentages.Just as their genes dictate that they should.
    Glad to have been able to help in this matter.Personally I swear by L Oreal Men Expert hydra energetic 24 hour hydration anti- fatigue moisturiser:cool:
