There’s a fine line between a well-groomed dude and a metrosexual dude, and it’s important to know where it is. Girls like a man with some sense of style and grooming, but they also dig the rugged types. We like to look decent, and it gets us more babes. It’s the little things that count, because chicks notice details – proper shave, clothes that fit, shined up shoes, etc. At the same time, they probably are not interested in a dude that has more hair products in the bathroom than they themselves have. It only takes few simple precautions and steps to make sure you are looking your best and also not going overboard.
Hair Products and Personal Hygiene
You should do something with your hair, even if it’s gelling it back or using pomade. If it’s super short or buzzed, you can also just keep it properly trimmed, because it grows out fast and starts to look grungy. The point here is that you make the best of what you’re working with. Girls will notice your style and not only does it make you look physically appealing, it also gives off an aura of personal success and confidence. A man who knows how to present himself knows how to do other things in the sack.
Clothing: Manpris and the Elusive Search for Hemlines
For guys, there are two standard types of pants: jeans and casual fabrics, like khaki or corduroy, a solid color in fabric that looks like pants. This is all good in the winter when it’s cold, because you don’t have to think about anything else to wear whether you’re going to work or going out. That’s the only time there’s a difference. But then there are summers and not all of us want to wear pants in summers. We’re going to use the summer fashion dilemma as a learning experience: hemlines. Manpris, as you may be familiar with – capris for dudes – are too metrosexual. You look like a female co-ed running to her morning yoga session. Then you have cargo shorts. If you choose the wrong style (avoid too many pockets and the color beige), cargo shorts look like you just graduated high school and you’re going on a camping trip with the Boy Scouts. We suggest going for shorts, and experimenting with colors. You can have a standard, traditional pair of shorts, but what will catch a lady’s attention is a snazzy color. Pick out something that looks sharp and unique; she’ll respect you for it and think that you are a stylish dude.
Home decor isn’t so much about masculinity, as it is about whether you’re a slob or have posters of porn stars decorating your place. When a chick comes over, focus on having the basic necessities of an adult existence – a few pictures on the walls, one or two decent pieces of furniture, and a bed frame. Don’t expect a girl to let you bang her on a bare mattress on the floor. It’s the opposite of stylish, and it’s neither metrosexual or rugged – it’s just gross. Hot ladies like an adult man who knows what he’s doing.
