Am I Metrosexual?
I’ve been described by a number of people as metrosexual. I’m not really sure if I fit the bill. I think people have mistaken “taste” for “metrosexuality.” Here’s some info:
Are You a Metrosexual?
I like my hair to look cool. I use hair products like Bed Head Tigi Wax Stick for Cool People and Bed Head Tigi Manipulator. So what though? I think guys’ hair without product looks stupid. Worse, are the guys that use mousse or hairspray (these went out with the 80s). Oh, I go to a stylist and get highlights. Many guys go to a random “barber” and wonder why they receive randomly bad hair cuts. I typically wear my hair spiked up or occasionally in a fauxhawk (a fake mohawk). My girlfriend says I have “rock star” hair.
I like girls, ladies, and women - I don’t care the color, race, ethnicity, etc., either. I don’t like guys and I’m not bicurious or whatever the term is.
Stupid Weave Belt
I’m not really obsessed with clothes. I hate wearing a tie or dressing up for that matter. About the only thing that bothers me is when men wear white tennis shoes with jeans and one of those weave belts with a stupid white t-shirt (like a bud light advertisement or sports shirt) tucked in. Basically, I don’t believe in wearing tennis shoes, t-shirts, or running shoes, unless I’m working out…not for going out. Also, I don’t ever wear a baseball hat – I think that’s kind of redneckish, especially when men wear it indoors at a restaurant. I do wear a visor when I run…but it’s to keep sweat out of my eyes, not for style.
Piercings / Tattoos
I have none. I used to have my nipple pierced, but that was a stupid Spring Break thing…I’ve grown up since then.
I drive an old car…90s model and have a bike rack on my car. The bike rack is not for looks, I actually use it for my bikes! I rarely clean my car either.
I like techno, but I also like 80s metal (hair bands), rock, etc. About the only music I can’t stand is Soul/R&B (women yelling at high pitches), rap, and country.
I don’t like bud light or stupid American beers. I’ll pretty much drink water if bud light, amberbock, or those other silly beers are all that is available. I only drink decent beers – like Sierra Nevada IPA or Belgian beers, like Chimay. I like wine, but only decent wines…cabernet sauvignon primarily. I don’t like white zinfandel – that’s for people that don’t like wine.
I’ve been called “hoity toity” by my girlfriend because I’m particular about food. I don’t think I’m particular…I just have taste. I like Thai food, Spanish food (not Mexican), Vietnamese Food, etc. For dinner tonight I’m having Artichoke Pesto Tilapia, Asparagus, and a baked potato. I don’t like any chain restaurants (Applebees, Chilis, TGI Fridays, etc.) really and I don’t like Italian food (boring).
I care about my appearance, but mainly I just don’t want to get fat. I work out a lot, but I also do triathlons and other participant sports. I basically want to look good for the ladies. In case my girlfriend dumps me….I’ll be ready. I don’t get manicures or pedicures or any of that stuff. Oh, I did get braces in my late 20s because my teeth looked silly – they were very crooked. This was mainly for professional reasons though.
Closing Pin Necklace
I don’t wear any at all. Occasionally, I’ll wear a skydive necklace thing (a closing pin necklace), just to look cool, but that’s it.
Lost in Translation
I don’t watch it. I only watch movies. My favorite movies are Top Gun, The Beach, and Lost in Translation. I’ve also been known to watch “artsy fartsy” movies like Sideways or Man on Wire. I hate movies like Armageddon and Independence Day. Also, that movie Davinci Code comes to mind…the book sucked (I could never get through it – it was horribly written). Obviously, I didn’t see the movie.
