Metrosexuals and My Romance
Metros: I think that’s a wonderful idea! Guys who can be fashionable, wear hair gel properly, enjoy art and not have to worry about being called gay as a derogatory term because they can call themselves metro instead. I know a few who do and I enjoy their company thoroughly. But just like we can’t assume all gay men have wonderful fashion taste, I know I can’t assume all self-described ‘metros’ are the same. Are metrosexuals self-described, or is it a label given by others?
Are they just as credible in terms of people you’d call when organizing a touch-football game? Or are they reserved for the list of people you call when going to a swanky night club? I personally enjoy a friend who has similar interests, and mine include art, music, art-as-fashion and books. Whether that be a girl or a guy who’d call himself metro is cool. But I’m absolutely pleased with my boyfriend who would gladly trade an art film or going shopping, for a night watching Die Hard or playing hockey. Opposites make things more fun in the end.

I realize more and more as the calendar keeps a-flipping that I am so so lucky to have found my 'someone' so young. Someone once said sarcastically, “What’s the fun in finding your soulmate in high school?” (I think someone said it in a move, actually). You know what, ask me someday and I’ll tell you how much fun it is. :)
