Women Desire Real Men, Not Metrosexuals
Enterprise Record Post Scripts ^ | 2/26/10 | OneVike

Posted on 02/26/2010 10:18:45 PM PST by Korah

For the last decade, American men have been inundated with the idea that women prefer men who are in touch with their feminine side, men who are not afraid to spend a little extra time in front of the mirror, and maybe even wear a little make up to highlight the features of their face. We are told that men like John Kerry and Barack Obama are what women really want. Men who are not only unashamed of their femininity, but men who will even go so far as to display such faith in their feminism in public as Obama has time and time again.

Well, please allow me to set the record straight, because it seems that Al Gore, John Kerry, and Barack Obama are really not the type men that turn the ladies on. I found this survey from a deodorant company that inherently, just makes sense to me. I had not heard of this survey before now, but I have read numerous reports in Australian and European papers about it. I'd link you to the survey itself, if only I could find it, but like many polls and surveys it has disappeared within a few months. As I stated, most of my facts about this survey have been gleaned from information I could attain from the many articles written about the results. I must admit that I'm delighted with the findings, for me they make total sense. My guess is that the MSM would rather the men of America continue believing that women desire the kind of feminine men that currently occupy the White House. However, the way companies advertise their products proves that the following results of this survey must be true.

In an independent study commissioned by Lynx deodorant, 2800 women from 14 countries ranging from the ages of 18-34 were asked what they like in men. It turns out that 80% of women would rather have a man who is capable of being "sensitive without losing his masculinity". Women it turns out, are not much into the sensitive new-age guy who is touch with his feminine side. They want a man who can light their fires and

Being a woman, I must say it's about time that someone wrote an article about the truth of what we ladies find attractive in men.

I’ve always felt that real ladies like real men. Only insecure women like girly men.

For longer than the past decade, we men have been told a lot of crap.

I'm not sure about the people who believed it, but neither I nor most of the guys I know did anything but laugh at the 'Culture Club' rejects or roll our eyeballs and utter phrases which are not appropriate on this website.

Not totally true. I lived in New York and Washington DC for a while, so met different types of women.

Women with a leftist-bent do prefer metro-sexuals. Maybe such guys are more easily manipulated/dominated?

I understand, but I would think that many of those women are the type that will either cheat on their husband with a real man, or at least constantly turn their heads when they see them.

What is most upsetting is having to deal with these weanies in every day life. Maybe not always the “classic” metrosexual, but men who have been conditioned not to step up to the plate and be men.

Women want to get back to the good old days when men treated women like ladies. So feel free to open door and pull back the chair for your lady gentleman, because that is what they truly want.

I can recall times where I got looked at like a wierdo for offering to walk a date to her car when it was dark/icy, and got the same look for opening a door once too.

Pretty much sums it up for me.

I don’t want a MAN with prettier hands than mine, hairspray on his hair, flawless appearance. No pretty boys either.

I like the regular kind of guy, with callouses on his hands and cow poop on the boots.

Men don’t need women defining us or telling us who we should be.

A great many of us went past that nonsense when we separated from our mothers as children or young men.

The rest, still worrying what their mothers and mother substitutes thought of them long into adulthood, fell for this women’s lib nonsense, ignoring the obvious biologic imperatives staring them in the face. Many still haven’t got it.

Sad.

I have long hair (usually in a ponytail), but I don’t use any product other than shampoo. I have callouses on my left hand, and scars on the right (the former because I play guitar, the latter because I work on my own cars). Hopefully, this makes me attractive. :)

As long as you are not going to argue about who gets more time in front of the mirror and a woman is not waiting for you to go in a date.

OH yea, use deodorant, because we really do detest the European type of men who smell just because they think it’s el-naturell.

***Women Desire Real Men, Not Metrosexuals***

Too late ladies! You had your chance 43 years ago! And what did you want? Real Men? No! You wanted long haired stinkey pot smokin hippies!

Now I’m taken for the last 39 years! You will never know what you have missed in that time! And I do have a very happy wife! :-)

Musically inclined and handy, too?

Yup. That's attractive.

I'd flirt, Zircon, but I've already got one at home. He's been all mine for nearly 17 years.

The lemon law expired. He can't trade me in :)

Some men are handsome.

Some men are handy.

If a man is none of the above, then be wealthy enough to hire someone who is handy!

"It turns out that women of today are just like our mothers and grandmothers were, they believe a man is supposed to take the initiative, and be what God made men to be."

Genuine women crave kindness and strength, in as close to a 50/50 ratio as possible. God made us that way in order to ensure propagation of the species.

The "John Wayne" type masculinity makes us feel safe, and the attraction is that we feel he will bedtter protect the nest from enemies and predators.

Being a man, it’s nice to know that the effeminating of men isn’t going to be encouraged by all women. I say let the women be women and the men be men.

A mesomorph scares a Lefty of both genders. They identify muscles with primitive impulses, instincts, savagery, and an unsophistication. They only want men to be manly if there is something dirty or dangerous to be done, and it should be done where they do not hear about it or see it. (The Left, who do so little dangerous work or service in the military grow weary and tired just having to hear of the sacrifices of others. They're willing to lose just so they won't have to troubled hearing about it.)

The fact is that real men, like farmers, cops, service members, etc., are supposed to do the work for the Lefty elites and not intrude on their snobbish world where skinny effete bodies are signs of superior sensibilities.

I strongly agree with your comment. A woman I know is a Rham Emanuel pseudo-stalker. She told me she sometimes hangs out at the ballet studio where Emanuel works out hoping to get a glimpse of him.

Sometimes I feel like an alien walking around here and that I have forgotten how to phone home. RESCUE ME!

It’s actually pretty simple. What men and women both desire in a mate is exactly the same (sort of). Men want a feminine woman and woman want a masculine man. A man with some characteristics which could be seen as feminine would be attractive to women whose sexual interest include an attraction in some way toward their own sex. The same can be said for men

How appropriate that the article should be accompanied by a picture of Rhett Butler. I always thought that character was the very definition of masculinity.

You sound like Red Green: "If women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy."

True story: I had to get the pickup inspected this past month (Feb). I pull into the inspection place right before this guy in a car. Guy asks mechanic if they install wiper blades -- he'd just bought a pair for his girlfriend's car and was looking for someone to install 'em. I guess that's your third point.

I kept my mouth shut...

Good thing, too, since we've struggled our entire married life!
