NOT VERY long ago, the biggest reason for a girl to be attracted towards a guy was his manliness that he emitted wherever he went.
The macho man has evidently taken a back seat as a new breed of charmers has walked into the centerstage.
Metrosexual men are no different from their macho counterparts, except for the fact that they portray an enhanced softer personality that had hitherto not been their ballgame. In the garb of undaunting sophisticated persona, the suave metrosexual has groomed his way ahead as the newest stud to be reckoned with.
Needless to say, metrosexuals are all the rage in the new age, weighing much over the macho breed, as todays girls like boys who are well groomed, smell good, and have a mind as well.
METROSEXUAL MAN IS THE SAME OLD HUNK WHO JUST HAPPENS TO SPLIT HIS TIME EVENLY BETWEEN THE FITNESS CENTRE AND THE GROOMING CENTRE.

A metropolitan interested in sex rather than in settled life denotes the metro-sexuality of many due to city life, modernity and all kinds of facilities!

Metrosexuality is a phenomenon associated with globalised lifestyles. It occurs among guys with lots of money coming too soon, with a crowded living space where lots of peers interact offering markets, close encounters and competitions in presentability. One who falls into this psychological trap ends up as a metrosexual. While other attributes are similar easy personal traits are used to measure acceptability.

Frankly I don't know the REAL meaning of this term, just like six packs...
BUT the Times of India and rest of the printed media wants us to believe that if you are not metrosexual then you are not successful and not fit to move in the society.

IF THOSE WHO APPEAR ON page3 ARE METROSEXUALS THEN I REALLY DON'T WANT TO BE A METROSEXUAL.

Metrosexuality refers to urban, heterosexual men who wax, exfoliate and perform other grooming rituals some consider strictly feminine.
Though initially mainly promoted by male style magazines such as Esquire and FHM, the concept has been popularised by intense media interest in celebrity icons like footballer David Beckham, who has epitomised the notion of metrosexuality during the past couple of years and secured the use of the term in the context of a booming health and beauty industry. The term has been the subject of some controversy, sceptics viewing it as yet another marketing ploy. However, sociologists have associated it with the concept of an insecure 21st-century male who has witnessed the rise of female power in the workplace; a man who needs to assert his position in a society which focuses on gender-equality.

Background
The terms metrosexual and metrosexuality were first used in 1994 by British journalist Mark Simpson. They are derived from a play on the word hetero ...more
