    What are people's opinions on lads/men/guys who are way too over the top on making sure they are waxed, tanned and have designer stubble etc

    For me personally as long as you are in decent shape or are clean and look after yourself then that's fine icon_biggrin.gif

    I don't have anything against them, I like guys who are clean-cut and know how to dress themselves well. However, if they are too metro or obsessed with appearance I probably won't date them.

    I prefer to just be plain and simple lol

    One time about ten years ago I was in a deserted gay bar (with my work colleagues lol) and the finalists from Mr Gay UK all came in wearing just underwear and sashes, and started talking to us for some reason. I was talking to one of them and he treated himself to a gin and diet tonic water. Seemed a bit strange to be going round bars promoting Mr Gay UK and never drinking!

    (Side note - I actually looked up "shap" to see if it was British slang. Idiot. lol.)

    Me personally? I don't care for waxing, tanning, designer things. The less of all that the better.

    It's unavoidable to offend when stating preferences because you accidentally communicate that you believe there is something unappetizing about something you don't prefer. There is no such thing as not liking something for no reason.

    I think I prefer more hair, no artificial tanning and designer clothes because they embody masculinity. Although in certain ways, a level of them are personally excusable.

    It's one of the biggest differences between me and mine.
    I have to give him an hour head start if I plan on going anywhere.
    He hates that I'll go days without combing my hair and pull something out of the hamper to run to the store no care as to what I look like.
    Guess I'm used to it, because my best buds in the service we're worse.
    On the plus side: it's fun to buy him new lotions--the grin, priceless.

    I prefer to be simple. I don't mind men that care for their look and image as long as it is not over the top. To me, men look great and attractive when they're raw and natural.
