All throughout my school year girls never took any interest in me. Then after I graduated I experimented with my looks: I let my hair grow out, shaved my moustache, got my ears pierced and got a few tattoos. I still dress the same but more women have acknowledged me and a few have even told me i'm beautiful.. I don't think I am but i'd pretty much describe the 2 styles women like in men as rugged and elegant.. Like the 2 guys in lord of the rings lol the dude with 5 O' clock shadow and the elf guy who looks like a chick lol
Frankly I'd prefer an androgynous guy to a "manly" one any day. I feel like those who are androgynous go out of their way more in taking care of themselves (with exceptions out there). I also feel that androgynous guys understand some of the things women fight with in terms of appearance and hygiene a lot better than rough cut "manly" men. My father's a manly guy and he has never understood what it takes to make myself look the way I do and always harasses and teases my mother and me whenever I'm back home-he just doesn't understand :P I would prefer a guy that would understand me! :)
ever since i started having a type (when i was 12ish), people around me have told me i like the girliest-looking boys. i don't see it that way. i just like faces that are balanced and pleasant to look at while i have very little interest in body. i suppose that means i like androgynous boys.
I don't think you look androgynous at least not to the point where you can't tell what sex you are. Definitely not manly but not girly just... a little effeminate? I don't know lol but I think you're attractive.
I think it has to do with acting as you want to and being true to yourself. As a girl in my twenties I find that's a really dificult thing to do even though I'm taking the "normal" or stereothypical course of action. I say yes! Be who you want to be, who you are; you're showing a lot of confidence that way and that's always attractive.
