Is it shameful to be metro?
Should I be ashamed of being metrosexual?

You should NEVER be ashamed who you are! Who cares what other people think.
People that mind, don't matter and people that matter don't mind ;)
Just be yourself! The world is full of wannabees and look-a-likes, it could use some real people!
Pretty sure being metrosexual is as obvious as a nudist in a nunnery. Not really something you need to 'admit to' seeing as it pertains to your style and whatnot.
But anyway, no don't hide it (don't know how you would, anyway). Lots of metro guys these days. Nothing to be ashamed of. Different strokes for different folks.
So, you shave regularly, style your hair, take care of your skin, carefully select your clothes, use deodorants/antiperspirants... OMG, you should be shoot by the firing squad on the main square LOL!
Just kidding, of course - taking care of ones outside is a good thing and certainly nothing to be ashamed of. There are, however some "rough guys" out there, who you might avoid sharing your beauty secrets with, but the majority of normal world would take that OK.
The best advice ever for anyone : Be yourself because everyone else is taken. And you are better at being yourself than being someone else. :) Cheers. ^_^
Life's too short to suppress who you are which in turn stresses you out and gives you wrinkles I'd assume. BE YOURSELF! YOU ARE AWESOME! ;)
Simple answer: No.
Complex answer: Being yourself, whomever that is, is the cool thing to do. Not a shameful hider. Shame is something you put on yourself, other people don't dictate that. (And those who think they can you're not going to be happy around anyway)
of course not! people who don't accept you for you aren't worth it. so you care about how you look, that's a good thing. being metro sexual isn't shameful. you should be proud of who you are, just don't let others push you around, namely other guys with bad attitudes that need a reality check.
Noooo. Of course not. ^-^
In fact, I wish more guys were metrosexual.
I appreciate when people try to look their best.
It would get annoying if a guy...or girl... were constantly looking at themself in the mirror though.
It's part of who you are and I don't see a reason to be ashamed of wanting to spend time and money looking presentable. Beats the hell out of looking like a bum in your pjs in Wal Mart, right? If people are going to judge you based on that, why would you really be considered about their opinion anyway.
There's nothing wrong with that, as long as your happy the way you are then it's fine. You don't have to tell the world and make up a reason for it, you are who you are and they don't need an explanation why.

What is wrong with the people answering this question? For those of you that aren't using full capacity of your brain:
Metrosexual: a usually urban heterosexual male who pays much attention to his personal appearance by fastidious grooming, beauty treatments and fashionable clothes.
Homosexual: 1. of, relating to, or characterized by a tendency to direct sexual desire toward another of the same sex. 2. of, relating to, or involving sexual intercourse between persons of the same sex.
They are not the same. Being one does not automatically make you the other. Just because I'm black with dreads doesn't make me a pot smoking rapper with a criminal record. This is called stereotyping. I'm an all-out metrosexual. Shave everywhere (don't like body hair), pluck eyebrows (like em neat), keep my clothes nice and always sharp (need to look good), the hair is on point (I keep a fresh lining and it's always neat and clean and ready for a lady to run her hands through it without being grossed out), always smell good (Aqua di Gio, Burberry Touch, Lacoste, Kenneth Cole Reaction colognes-ladies love them) and always keep the Johnson clean (shaved or groomed).
Ladies love all this sh*t. Look at the above answers for your proof if you think not. Imma guys guy. I ain't gay, I play and love every sport (but mostly football), I git dirty because I don't give a sh*t and I workout 4 times a week. Ladies love a man that keeps it together. Some ladies love a metrosexual and some love the Brawny man. Be you and be cool.
its just a label/name. its not really a sexual orientation. don't think of it as an actual category. its just more of an appearance thing. you put more into how you look than traditional guys. so what. most girls will appreciate it unless you actually carry yourself extreemely feminine along with it.
i am from the deep south where men are "supposed" to me macho and rugged like paul bunyan or something. we are all supposed to be greasy from working on cars with chew in our mouth. its kind of silly if you think about it. but I don't let that stop me from being who I want to be.
i am an mma fighter, ride 4 wheelers all the time, mud boggin, fishing, hunting, drinking beer, I walk and talk just like your typical georiga boy, blah blah blah...but I have more clothes than any girl I know, my house is littered with gq magazines and pages I have torn out because I like the way the outfit was put together, I use mud masks on my face, I get my teeth whitened, etc. etc.
so who cares. its just your preference of how you take care of yourself. is some caveman man don't like it and has something to say about it, who cares. just smile knowing his girlfriend is probably checking you out and wishing her pet silverback gorilla boyfriend looked and smelled more like you. that's what I do.
I mean I wouldn't walk around gallivanting it for no reason (eg "Hey I'm Rashad and I'm metrosexual. How's it going?") But if you clearly look the part and someone asks, I don't see why you'd lie about it if it's a label you're actively trying to attain. I mean I personally take care of myself-dress nicely, wear cologne, etc...all that good stuff, but I could never call myself metro without laughing...it just carries so many crazy, largely unattractive characteristics that it's hard to take seriously. For example, if you look up the definition, metrosexual is basically the state of loving yourself instead of women or men. It's pure, unadulterated narcissism and selfishness, which in most cases isn't the greatest quality to pride yourself on. So you may shop for clothes every weekend, spend 2 hours getting ready in the morning and hit the gym 11 times a week, but do yourself a favor and it just call it taking care of yourself-the connotations that come along with calling yourself metro just seem too negative unless you truly do embody all of those qualities.
I'm pretty metrosexual almost verging on feminine in some ways, it depends exactly what you mean by metrosexual. I pluck my eyebrows, take care of my appearence and care about fashion - I certainly don't hide these things, in fact I'm rather proud of these things in a way.
I also have 2 plants in my room, use candles all the time, enjoy clothes shopping, own about 10 pairs of shoes and get very emotional at films sometimes. I don't shout about these more feminine aspects, but I'm not ashamed of them. That's who I am. All my good friends know about these things and it has never affected my friendship with them. If it did, then they wouldn't be very good friends really. I sometimes act a bit more masculine to fit in a bit if I'm around very manly, sporty, muscly, macho men or something, but I wouldn't stop being myself, I'd just slightly adjust certain things and maybe not say some things that I would normally or whatever. But I'm a lot happier when I can just be myself.

1. You should never be ashamed of who you are
2. no, it's not shameful.
3. "metrosexual "is a subjective term. It can mean just taking care of your appearance and body, which at this point in time, is the normal thing to do.
4. I disagree with that term.
5. How can you hide it? lol
I am not metro but I have friends like that, I don't judge
i think men should dress like men, and women should dress like women. period, unless of course your a flaming homosexual or transgendered, then wear whatever the hell you want. I personally think that guys that put too much effort into their looks are insecure about something. I understand that most of the girls on here probably would love dating a man that dressed like a nancy, tight shirts, gelled douchebag hair etc. etc. I think it looks stupid but that's just my opinion.

Dudes will bust on you but girls love that sh*t ha ha and even tho your halfway gay (told ya dudes would bust on you lol) you gotta be man enough to stand behind who you are and how you like to act the manliest thing you could be doin is not hiding anything about yourself and bein a proud metrosexual! Haha
You own it buddy. Nothing wrong with being metro. If you are want to get with a really cool girl, the best starting point is to just be who you are. It's hard to f*** that up, and the type of person you are going to attract will be more compatible with you anyway. I have several female friends who specifically go for metro guys, think body hair is gross and would love it if their boyfriends would do a little manscaping.
Thats like asking, "should I be ashamed for using a baby wipe to clean my butt instead of dry toilet paper"
Be who you are comfortable being. If the people around you don't like it then they aren't the right people to be hanging around.
nothing wrong with taking pride in your appearance. It's good to make an effort.
