The Vain Game When Your Man Is Prettier Than You

Love lowdown:

The Vain Game

When Your Man Is Prettier Than You


‘HOW do I look?’

Today, this seems to be a question uttered not only by women but even by men—men who are not necessarily gay, but are by all means straight.

Meet the metrosexuals-- men who pay more attention on their appearance. They are particular with their looks, be it the number of facial creams they use or the hair removal products that they have tried. Metrosexuals pamper themselves and shell out money, not only on cars and gadgets but also on their beauty products.

The thought of being with a man prettier than you may sound uncomfortable, but worry not. Here are the pros and cons of being with a metrosexual:

The downside: Metrosexuals are picky, even with little stuff such as their cologne and even—gasp—your lipstick color. Sometimes you find yourself trying to measure up to his appearance.

The upside: His being looks-conscious means he has a lot to offer, like being well-groomed and well-spoken. You can proudly show off your guy to either your friends or your ‘rents and not worry about what they would say about his appearance.

The downside: His prep time is longer than yours. You don’t know if it’s the number of hair products he uses or the number of times he changes clothes -- you still have to wait for him as you both get ready for the movies.

The upside: Salon bonding time. More men now prefer going to the salon rather than their trusty barber. Maybe it is because of services like hair spa, manicure, and foot spa, or maybe because they get to spend time with you.

The downside: Gay guys hit on him. Face it, not only is your guy good-looking, he also dresses well, attracting a lot of women and gays. Because of this you’ve already thrown more than dagger eyes to a lot of gay men for mistaking him to be a homo.

The upside: He is fashionably aware. This does not necessarily mean he knows the trends—if he does then he might just be with the gay guys flirting with him. Because of this, he can give you advice on what looks good on you!.
