A great hub about a womans choice in men

Updated on March 12, 2014

Yup this is me in my dressed for networking look, but its not a Metrosexual look at all

Awesome hub Tammyswallow wrote, it was very well written, very professional, but what I loved most was her courageousTopic

First off I would like to tell you that I have experienced many differing phases as a young man, leading up from puberty and all the way out into grown adulthood, or manhood as most men would put it.

Peer pressure has always been my pet peeve though, and surely when it comes to looks and everything ever since I we're young, first it begins with parental pressures, and then siblings, then friends, and finally strangers all saying similar things as I grew over the years, and all about what they think it is to be a man, when much of it was their own opinions pretty much.

I never totally listened to it all, and simply decided to do me, by learning about manhood without the added distractions. What I discovered is that it takes a whole lot to endure what a male goes through in life, due to all these pressures of acceptance, and high expectations from even their own family. This is not to say that any of it is totally wrong, but its also not totally right either.

As a child I always knew there was something majorly wrong with many things, and especially that of many social groups crafted out of this kind of pure acceptance, approval/disapproval means, that many of my peers actually chose to associate with. Society as a whole seemed to even follow such social trends, and so I thought that maybe it was influence coming from a higher source or format that lead to this occurrence, and the whole role model game (Maybe Television, media, movies, etc....).

The point I'm driving at here, is that good ole term known as 'superficial', which causes many people to lose sight of what it is to simply be human. People tend to think its all about looks, the whole modeling imagery of Hollywood glamor, and that includes both male and females who stay so status conscious. This is why I strayed so far away from such high standards as a child, and now into adulthood to avoid being stigmatized into such stereotypical demographic groups or many people know it today as becoming a follower type of person. You know those people whom tend to strive to remain grouped into the popular trends of society, and similar to how the Metrosexual males aim follow many of the hot trends of fashion, in their own ways.

Yes, I do feel its important to have immaculate hygiene, and yes it is important for anyone male or female to show they take pride in how they appear to others, but no I cannot agree with over doing it all, and so I like your philosophy and take on the whole Metrosexual thing. So I chose to purchasing lower standard clothing, and more average looking stuff, and I don't do the manicure or pedicure thing at all. I simply clip my nails with a nail clipper, plain and simple.

Tammyswallow a class act on facebook - She's a Awesome writer


Ending Remarks-

I hope that tells you what kind of Man I've grown to become, just a plain old simple hard cut guy, who cares less about looking spiffy, or like a billboard model or something. Its just a matter of personal preference for sure.

Awesome Hub and Metrosexual, or what ever sexual titling doesn't really phase me none @tammyswallow, people have the right to look and feel the way they choose in my most humblest, and honest opinion just as is, its your right to like whom ever you choose out of the bunch.

Now just think, imagine if everyone looked the same in the whole entire world, where would there be a choice of variety to choose from, things would simply go dull, and boring to me. So I do agree that your choice in men is a great one, but I think everyone should have their own look and choice to choose as well, but I respect your views for sure. Thanks for writing such a cool hub, and for showing us all your point of view on the mating game, and selectivity of one.

Tammyswallow is a prime example of a writer who holds nothing back, I provided her profile up above, and a image of her hub about Metrosexual men has inspired me to write this hub here. "Thanks Tammyswallow for the inspiration, your hard work and dedication as a true writer on hubpages will bring you great success, and I wish you only the best in your future travels in life as well."

      Hi Mike,

      Great to see you 'in the flesh' as it were. Good to see that we share ideas on the whole metrosexual thing. I wrote a hub on it a while back.

      Good work Mike keeping it real. Tammy is one of the greats here in hubland.

      Yay my friend Kelleyward has made it to share some hublove. Hi Kelley, yup hubpages has become a place for kindred souls I guess, we all are exceptional people here, and I mean the whole of the hubpages community, maybe excluding the party poopers. I wish everywhere was like this, and its not a far fetched wish at all.

      Maybe if we keep sharing so selflessly more and more and more, the world will begin to see what us writers are truly signally and attempting to do, which is create unity amongst us all. Just a thought you know, I have always sensed that such a thing could become possible, and it doesn't matter where it starts, because true love holds no boundaries.

      Humanity surely needs more of what we all are putting out daily as positively charged writers, we all work so very hard at it all digitally, and so you just never know Kelley. Our words travel far, we both know that for sure, hopefully this great wish can come true. Unity for us all by way of powerfully provocative, yet thoughtful loving words...........

      I like your way of seeing things Tammyswallow, you are truly genuine indeed. Its tough to find real people as you also have acknowledged their on the Facebook group tonight, especially that of a true mate.

      In terms of the whole scarred thing. I think stripes are good too, it builds character for sure, and people tend to respect those who've gone through a great deal and survived it all to tell the story, more then those who simply avoided everything in life, so your right about that for sure.

      Thanks for sharing with me here, and once again congrads on your awesome hub you've written.

      Thanks Billybuc, this is a hub that Tammyswallow gets all the credit for by inspiring me to write it, its simply a long winded comment to her I had wrote in her comment section earlier today.

      The hub she wrote on her sexual preference in Men, made me jump at writing back to her, my own experience, and so I've embarked on a new journey on hubpages which is a 20 part series on spreading hub love for others.

      Its a sensational way to share and the new video section here on hubpages compliments the cool sharing factors in every way.

      I also thank hubpages for all the awesome tooling to make this form of communications possible while simultaneously being able to write for folks on here as well.

      "It's a shallow life that doesn't give a person a few scars". ~Garrison Keillor

      Cloud Explorer, I thank you for your heartfelt response. It brings such a reality to Hubpages and to writing and it is wonderful to actually see and hear the impact of something we write has on another.

      I hope you know that our physical and emotional scars are like a tiger's stripes we EARN through life. They make us who they are. Those who would reject us because of them don't deserve to be in our lives.

      It amazes me how women and men respond to this hub differently. It has been more popular with the men. There are so many men out there who feel so pressured to present an image for some women and some women are very shallow in what they are looking for. So many woman are looking for Prince Charming. Not me.. I waited patiently for 32 long years and caught a King. :)

      Your video and words mean so much to me. I hope you will never settle for less than you deserve and never, ever conform to please anyone. I hope you pass up a Princess and find your Queen!! Thanks my friend!

      This hub just happens to be about my greatest supporter and the hubber who has meant a great deal to me. I love Tammy and I salute you for giving her a tribute.

      I love the videos that you include in your hubs; great job my friend.
