What it’s like dating a metrosexual man


The so called ‘feminine’ man is a term used to describe men who prefer going to the salon than go watch a soccer match. They’re mostly recognised by their taste in clothes, manicured nails, and the perfect haircut.

Here’s what to expect if you score yourself one of these

He might borrow your beauty products

Should there be a certain product he feels is doing wonders for your skin, be prepared to share it with him. You might even exchange a few tips on beauty products, so it becomes a win for the both of you.

No more whining during shopping

We know how men hate shopping and worse when they’re accompaning their women. Take as much time as you want, this is his favourite activity as much as it’s yours.

Spa dates are a must

Unlike booking yourself a solo spa treat, he will gladly join in on the fun. The perfect date for him is getting pampared and looking good while doing it.

You’ll never worry about him being underdressed

He takes his appearance very seriously so make sure you’ve got your style on point as he might just take the spotlight away from you! Everyday is reason enough for him to dress up.

He leads a healthy lifestyle

… Which is a bonus because dating a slob, who’s always eating leftover pizza and drowning himself in beer can be demotivating when all you’re trying to do live a healthy life.

He constantly checks himself in the mirror

Metrosexual men usually look at themselves in the mirror whenever they get the chance, and sometimes they will do it more than you. It could be to check if his hair is layered properly, or just to look at his gorgeous well-groomed self.
