    Are you a metrosexual?

    http://proxy.espn.go.com/chat/sports...z?event_id=418
    Are you a man who enjoys shopping, snappy shoes and a crisply starched buttondown? Have you ever frosted your hair or bought a pair of low rise bootcuts? Do you prefer a good martini over a sudsy draft? Get with it hipsters, you may be a metrosexual.
    I got a 7.

    I don't get it - is the aim here to get a high score and define yourself as a quasi-fruit, or is it to get a low score and be classed as lower than a Neanderthal?

    I got 1.

    Can someone come over to my place and shave my back?

    What are sneakers exactly? I think they mean running shoes?
    I would have gotten an 8 if they'd had a decent choice for "ideal Friday night."
    I don't watch games, thank God we frown upon corporate restaraunts like TGI Friday's here in Chicago, and I don't go to musicals or drink trendy martinis at trendy bars. The latter is for the conformist masses of our upper class Chicago neighborhoods whose Friday night wouldn't be complete without flaunting the money the make or the money their parents gave them in an effort to go home with someone (if single) or just show off how cool they think they are.
    But that's another story.

    Anyhow, personally there's nothing wrong with the things they list. It's just that there are too many men out there who are revolted at the idea of doing anything that might be labeled feminine. Their precious macho mystique might be lessened.
    From dozens and dozens of articles I've read on such things, and people I've talked to, friends and such, so many girls out there appreciate if a guy takes care of himself, has good fashion sense, will spend money on decent clothes, has a good personal style, has good hair, etc.
    I'm glad that "He wears nice shoes and has cool hair, so he must be gay" stereotype is fading somewhat. I've gotten it before several times, and it's pretty hilarious and all, but rather sad that because you are fashionable and don't look like an Abercrombie ad, people question your sexuality.

    Hey, can someone pass mg33 the skin lotion - I think he's in imminent danger of flaking.

    What are sneakers, indeed?

    FYI, you automatically get a 12 on the quiz if you don't know.

    About the sneakers, I mean, sometimes that's what people call casual shoes. But I have a few pair of shoes that are casual, but I wouldn't call them sneakers.
    Like Campers. I have a pair of those and I don't call those sneakers.
    Nor do I call skate shoes sneakers. But the Adidas running shoes I have, those I think are sneakers.

    Not trying to sound like a moron, but it's all in the definition I guess.

    Wow. You earned that 8.

    Sneakers = shoes for running, playing sports.

    Not shoes that look like sneakers but you can't do crap in, I know what you mean.

    daft, as it was too easy to steer the outcome.

    They should give you points for just showing up and taking the quiz, like the SAT....

    Please, all this talk about metrosexuals has my highlighted, waxed up hair in a bunch! The only real story here is how the MSN losers fabricate a story to put on their home page every now and then. 98% of the stories they conjur up are just to stir up a shread of interest so you will click 3 times on their site to up their hit totals and strobe your brain with advertising....

    So please, put the Martinis down, back away from the mirror and grab yourself a cheap beer and join the rest of us in a society where you belong.

    I got 0 as well, that said I'm more of a metrotechnosexual these days, I like shopping but I buy as much as possible over the int0rweb as I simply can't be arsed queing with the plebians in Leeds to buy my books, tanning gels and non-sneaker shoes.

    I do have a face wash scrub which I use when I remember and my sense of style is unrivalled in the Leeds area so this test was in fact rubbish
