Metrosexual man!!!

The word metrosexual was coined by Mark Simpson, a British journalist and write who wrote the article “Here Come The Mirror Men” in 1994, which ran in the English newspaper, Independent. The term got popular in Simpson’s 2002 article “Meet The Metrosexual” which identified David Beckham as the metrosexual poster boy!!!

What is it?

A metrosexual guy is one who embraces, and is in touch with his “feminine’ side. He’s a little narcissistic, but is not to be confused as a gay man. Oucchh!!!

- Meticulous and very conscious about his appereance. He’ll spend a lot of time perfecting it.
- Up-to-date with the latest hairstyles and is usually clad in fashionable clothes.
- Takes care of his lifestyle and fitness. He goes to the gym and eats well.
