Would you date a man who wore makeup?Page 2 of 13    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13)
METROSEXUAL MALE.


A heterosexual male that:

-is ONLY attracted to women
-give great attention to his appearance
-uses plenty of skin/hair care products
-dresses in style and enjoys shopping
-is hip to all things sophisticated
-prefers wine to beer
-is extremely name-brand conscious
-enjoys hosting parties/events
-is a romantic with an appreciation for art



That just sounds too feminine.Sorry.Men should act like men.Okay I'd rather have tarzan from the jungle.Why would any girl want another girlfriend, if she could have a manly man?Unless she is a lesbian or a bisexual herself.

hhmmm.....I never knew guys wore makeup. Never have known any man to wear it, and would be more than freaked out if he came to me with it on. Just like many other things I didn't know men did, like shave down there, or pluck eyebrows, or get pedicures.

Sheesh. I have been living in the wrong era!

H*ll yes I would (and have)! Very sexy if done right. My date to prom in highschool was wearing more eyeliner than i was heh.

I probably wouldn't like him wearing anything to *girly* though, I'm not into sissy boys. Gothish guys are adorable though ;-) .

OMFG!!!! I can't imagine a man in makeup thinking it added to his appearance!! That is just too funny. I seldom wear any myself, I can't imagine having a man who did!!!

I actually prefer guys who aren't afraid to wear makeup... eyeliner and mascara... one of my friends does, and he's most definately the hottest guy I know.... but then again I am into the goth scene anyways.

I wouldn't guage a person's "sexual preference" or anything like that on whether or not they wear makeup. Just because they wear makeup doesn't make them anyless of a man. You should see some of the guys that I know that wear makeup.... they could beat the shit out of a lot of people (they're not only tall (>6') but they're big (>250 lbs)) ...so I would never guage their manliness based on that either.

I like a guy to be openminded... its easier to talk to people that are openminded. So.. yeah i think its pretty cool :)

notice that most of the ladies on here that like the idea of a man in makeup are in their twenties....what does that tell you about society and the acceptance of the feminization of men.

Yes, most of the chicks who are into it seem to be very young. Apparently the OP is hanging out with a crowd MUCH younger than he is....at 41 you're considering wearing makeup??

Dude....be a man and do what most guys do when going thru a mid-life crisis....buy a sports car! For God's sake, please do not wear makeup. I think you would be the laughing stock...

He is already a laughing stock in my eyes.I mean I wear enough eyeliner for two people, I definately wouldn't want the guy I'm with to do the same thing too.That is just illogical, why do some men do that.

Why is it you're telling him to "be a man" ? I don't understand this... maybe it is because i'm only 20, and quite possibly naive. But the last time that I checked, what makes him a man is the fact that he has a penis, and testicles... i'm pretty sure that makeup has NOTHING to do with that.

Why is it that wearing makeup makes him "less of a man"? Does wearing makeup make us "more of a woman"? I don't define my sexual organs by the amount of makeup I wear.

And yes, us "younger" ones usually do find this more attractive since, guess what..? The world is becoming more accepting, and we're part of that generation. The generation that isn't afraid to say that makeup on a guy is "ok", or that transgendered people can live side by side with those of us who actually feel we were born the right gender. Notice that Canada also has that gay marriage thing? The world is progressing... and for those of us who are openminded, its moving at the right speed.

This is just the start.. I just hope that 20 years from now, that I will be just as openminded to the "weird" things people are doing then, as i am now.

If you don't prefer it that's cool...we all know what's attractive or not... we all have a "type"... just don't base a man's "manliness" based on whether he wears makeup or not. If I didn't wear makeup I wouldn't think of myself as less of a woman... and I actually commend women who go about their day without makeup. I don't think it changes the degree of their gender.

Maybe when i was in my teens when I was into the goth/new wave thing.
I hated the bands in the 80s early 90s that did this too. I wasn't into "hair rock"
But I'm almost 40 now and I say NO.

Unless it's corpsepaint.
haha, just kidding. If you don't know what that is, nevermind.

Excuse me terroriser

I do know one guy who wears make up.

He wears it since he was nearly beaten to death. His entire face was caved in badly. The doctors pretty much had to pull his face apart and put it back together again.

No fancy expensive cosmetic surgey for this dude either. His bank balance barely covered the cost of saving his life.

Now his face is such a mess that the girls just turn away at the sight of him.


He tries to tone things down a bit with make up but it doesn't help much.

Funny about this. When referring to rock bands doing it because they were doing the makeup thing long before the 80s. Late 60s: Elton John Early 70s: New York Dolls, David Bowie, Uriah Heep, and Twister Sister who started in 1974 and the original look was all the guys were in drag, with the lead singer (Not Dee Snider) in a wonderful wool sweater that came down nicely off his shoulders. And the influence for all the hairbands of the 80s the old school punkband Hanoi Rocks late 70s. Maybe I should pull that makeup out of my drawer? I guess the guys in Poison and Motley Crue are having there midlife crisises too!!!! I didn't even think of the Goth culture. I was really thinking of the Metrosexual Male. Who I said looks like James Bond and may add a little eyeliner or brush or coverup or foundation to inhance his looks. Just like the women do. Last year I repeirced my ear and bought a nice three inch, three chain earing with 6 stars at a Girly store. Why? Cause that's the person I was when I was younger and that's my roots. You don't have to become a different person because you get older. I think the younger generation understands this. Be yourself and don't make changes based on someone elses opinion. I'm not going through my midlife crisis. I did that at 23. I'm living my life the way I wish I could have lived it over the past 15 years due to very difficult hardships. I'm truly enjoying life for the first time now and truly looking forward to some wonderful life experiences, along with my earing.

Confidence is far sexier without vanity and no make needed. The day I get into a conversation with a man on the best way to apply make-up is the day we become friends and not lovers. ick.

qb, that tells us were in trouble. When some guy I'm dating asks me to hang out in the mens dressing room section and let him know how his rear looks in a certain pair of pants. I'm running back to Idaho and hiding. I want a man that's more masculine then I am :)

davis 57: obviously wearing makeup isn't going to turn a man into a woman but it certainly makes him more feminine. just like if he shaves his chest arms and legs, because he wants his skin to be baby smooth, just like a woman....thats feminine and the more society continues to blur lines btwn masculine and feminine the more we as a society will be in trouble. look at what the OP posted earlier, talking about elton john and david bowie two very feminine, girly men, thats certainly not who i would want to be compared to as a man. give me james cagney, john wayne, clint eastwood, anthony quinn, earnest hemingway, TR and last but certainly not least my dad. my father is the ultimate masculine figure in my life even at my ripe old age of 43, i wish i were half the man he is. maybe the problem is that metrosexuals and the women who love them never had a strong masculine father figure in their life so they don't have a good gage for what it takes to be a man. look at what the OP said earlier about dee snider wearing an off the shoulder sweater.... he considers this a good look for a man?


so you think that the blurring of masculine and feminine is good and you consider this progress huh. that this somehow makes you open minded, i'm willing to bet that as you get older and more experienced you'll end up frustrated and wondering where "all the real men are". just look at the profiles of woman on hear who are in their 30s and 40s who have that recurring theme in their profiles.


@ wbrh: believe me if i asked you to give me an opinion on my rear i wouldn't be wearing any pants.

I've been attracted to men wearing makeup, yes, they are usually musicians. One of them had a major cosmetic sponsor and I thought it would be cute if we could shop for makeup together. He once asked me if I had any eyeliner because he felt naked without it. ADORABLE!!!!

As long as the guy is confident in himself, I would have no problem with it.

But he'd have to look hot in makeup - like Eddie Izzard, who I would date as well, cross-dresser and all!!!

When I go out, I like to wear blue nail polish. Some of the gals think it is hot. It is part of the peacocking regimen, that catches women's attention. Gals often offer gratuitous compliments, and seek conversational exchange.

Despite some of the negative comments here on the forum, I find the polished nails to be a good icebreaker with women, and they do not complain about it.

There is no valid reason why fellows cannot have fun with grooming and makeup. Why should all guys have to dress and groom to a narrow and boring, look-alike standard?

qbnpete....I totally agree with you.I do not want feminine men.Oh and honestly I don't see any reason why anyone would.But it's their choice so I respect it.But would there be any difference between him and I then?I am attracted to the opposite sex, not interested in women or men who act like women.

sayonara: you are absolutely right.... i love women ( for example) because they're the opposite of me. soft and smooth in all the right places and they're nice and feminine.
