i've been researching what colors i should wear. usually i'm in the dark range of color choices, usually solids, in a t-shirt form. i rarily venture into the brighter range. but i've been trying to improve myself bit by bit. started wearing sandals outdoor, i always kept my feet hidden. i once bleached my hair with terrible results (most hated it).

but anway, i've started wearing pinks. and i got a good general reaction to the more open married ladies, who were totally shocked to see me in cotton candy pink.

i'm a white guy, brown curly hair, honey eyes. is there a color that you tend to look at more? like if someone had a specific color on, would your eyes be more likely be locked onto that one color? or is there a color that is universally pukie?

thanks

Ummm... pink?


I think I will just stay with blacks and grey. Thanks.

I have a baby blue shirt in the closet. It has been on a hanger since the day I recieved it. I don't like, nor do I feel comfortable, wearing bright colors. I have been told some of them look good on me. But to me comfort trumps style any day.

Honestly, I don't think that color theory works on girls.. like any other theory. [Big Grin]

many have said that on other forums. yet oddly people like it as a polo. when i first saw the shirt, i thought - ewww, pink. but against my skin it actually works pretty well. ideally i don't think anyone should sex colors.

I have it on good authority that it's not a manpurse. It's called a satchel. Or maybe my bro is just a little insecure...

Colors I like to see on guys... Anything that doesn't scream "I'm a metrosexual!!!" works for me. I don't like boys that spend more time grooming than I do. Makes me feel like I need to turn in my ovaries or something.

That said, unless you have a damn good excuse (ie, out in the mountains for days on end) clothes must be clean. Hair must be clean. Body must not smell. Facial hair must be tended. No visible dirt. Teeth must look like they get brushed now and then. Breath must not be gross. Etc. In other words, HYGIENE!

And speaking of smell, go easy on the cologne. No one should know you're wearing cologne unless they get real close.

BTW, in case anyone was wondering, my cologne-wearing labmate has shaped up nicely.

At the rate my sanity is dissolving I may well take you up on that, Shroom. And then you shall truly know that I have flipped :D (Or that I had one shroom too many...)

Actually, since you're a superfan, here's your golden opportunity to have an avatar different to Demos -- frilly lace perhaps? My (as of this past week) brother-in-law looks most odd in a nightgown and tiara but, whatever floats his boat. (And I presume it's not buoyancy)

C'mon guys. What color do girls like to see? What are you? Birds that need fancy plumage to attract a female?

Back to attraction 101.

1. Grow some balls.
Interested in someone? Talk to her/him.Nervous? Scared? S'ok. Practice in low key situations. Talk with cashiers, waitresses, co-workers. Practice hello, how are you?

2. Eye contact.
When you are talking to someone, look 'em in the eye. Again, practice in low-key situations before you hit the do-or-die ones.

3.No more wall-hugging, toe-gazing walking.
Head up, shoulders back, tummy in and go forth and circulate.

4.Confidence. Believe in yourself. There is nothing more sexy than someone who is comfortable and happy within themselves.

Sigh. Next thing you know someone will be saying "this season to attract women I am dabbling in the sorbet type colors" or"Skittles. Thats it. All the world loves a rainbow"

Go forth and mingle people. Even if it is with the local barrista [Wink]

Ahh the Norwegian blue. Beautiful plumage...

I can just imagine it. Get your best Barry White voice. Slink on up to some honey and say,
"MMMM yeah baby. Come on over here and taste the rainbow."

In all seriousness. Yaya is absolutely correct.

BTW, for future reference, Diet Coke DOES NOT feel good coming out your nose.

I'd also like to add one more thing: smile. Nothing's more attractive than a nice smile.

Looking at Yaya's list, all you really need is #4. If you have that, the first 3 will fall in line.

Is it not possible that you can be confident that you're fine, but that people still won't accept or respect you and thus you can still be afraid of how people will react to you?

Um, if you're confident you aren't afraid of how people will react to you. That's how confidence works.

It's been at least an hour since I saw CommanderShroom's post. I am still hearing Barry White saying "Mmm yeah, baby. Come on over here and taste the rainbow," in my head. This is not good. Not good at all.

I realized after reading your post that I had left out something important. Xanthine and Firesnake hit the nail on the head.

Once you have finally learned to like and respect yourself as you are then comes the next step. One of the hardest ever actually.(In my odd opinion anyways) Learning to accept the fact that no matter what, no matter who you are, how you look, how you act,how smart you are, how much money you do/do not have, not everyone will like you. Learning to relax and not care and taking everything as it comes is the best most liberating thing I have ever mastered. I suggest everyone try to also. Because after you have reached that point the stress, doubt and worry evaporate and the sheer fun of being social takes over.

there's nothing wrong with a Man's bag. a manssiere on the other hand may say something else. however a photo backpack says something else entirely...

is there any one or groupings of stuff that makes someone look more metro-sexual then anything else?

and does body type matter anymore?

OK Mr Mike. Here we are in BB 101. You can add more than one quote to a post. It helps keep the thread span blues away. Try it, it feels good. Mmm yeah. [evil]

Why should anyone that isn't getting any take my advice? Perhaps because I do and I have gotten some sweet, sweet lovin' from t3h h0t chixx0rz? And last check of my wardrobe there is nothing remotely metrosexual about any of it. And thanks, but I will stick to my old motorcycle bag for the tools and such and a wallet for everything else. If it can't fit into those, then I guess it stays home.

You don't have to look like a stoned dunce. Xan means smile when appropriate. When you speak to someone, when they speak to you. A straight face is more than ok between conversations. And don't wander around the office looking like you suck on lemons in your down time. Then when you talk to someone, brighten up your voice, smile (big smile, small smile doesn't matter) and look at them like they are important. Make them feel like they matter. Fer chrissakes, why is this so damned difficult? You know how that makes you feel when others smile at you. Now go and do the same thing. Look at the stuff that makes you feel good when people do it for you, then do it for others.

Decency, respect, and genuine attitude of caring is all that anyone needs.

And if that doesn't work. Buy a Corvette, the ladies love them.

/me sings

My darling, I can't get enough of your love babe
Girl, I don't know, I don't know why
Can't get enough of your love babe
