Well.. if you would ask the question outside of this forum, I guess most people would say no.
These kind stereotypes can't be advoided in our western socities, I'd say they're part of human nature.

When you get outside of a norm, you get stereotyped pretty quickly.

Linuxchild, I agree with you. He did not indicate anything about this guy's actions or behaviors other than the fact that he acts "girly." The word "sensitive" just really got me going, lol!

If you want to keep it simple then and specific to his question, obviously, girls are not usually attracted to girly men that act gay. Period.

^^^ not ur fault apryl the title is what gave us such assumption =D

nothing wrong with a hot guy who knows his style. im not going to assume this "girly" roommate is sensitive. college dudes i s ee nowadays hang out with girls a lot and vice versa. dont think thats a crime =] as for macking around i dont quite get wht u mean by that...

^^i didnt even read the title of the thread lol

aeroflying: I think theres also a line between loving fashion and having a sense of fashion. Most people just go to the store and buy clothing without thinking about what properly goes together, then you have most of the HF community who all have individual style. I bet you wouldn't see many of us at a fashion show or keeping up with the latest trends, thats love and dedication rite there.

So I guess if you ask the guys that only wear Hollister and Abercrombie if having a sense of fashion is gay they'd say yes. But what the hell do they know anyways when they get all of their clothing from the same store.

I truly hate shopping at most retail stores now because all their stuff is the same. They sell a million of the same shirt and you feel silly seeing 20 people in the mall that have the same shirt as you. There are a few stores with exceptions and of course.
and theres always

Good point about having a sense of fashion.
I think I am too sensitive as a guy. My dad was/is the same way and so was his dad. So it runs in the family. It's a trait that needs to be broken or maybe it's genetics. Interesting topic for discussion though.

I think a distinction needs to be drawn between "sensitive" and "effeminate."
post #34 of 57
Yeah, there are two different sets of conversations going on here. I guess the op was talking about effeminate men.

Sorry for my sensitive men comments you guys. I have just had some nightmare experiences. Good guys, even sensitive ones, should not be underrated. I did not mean to generalize.

That's being sensitive though. There's a point when a guys sneezing and sniffling attitude is just pathetic. Some guys are more emotional than others, for whatever reason. And I can see how that is a turn off for women.

apryl,
Don't be sorry, you are completley right in everything you originally said. This is the sensitive part you were talking about. I think you speak on behalf of many women with what you said, and it's not a bad thing.

Just because a guy doesn't SHOW emotion doesn't mean he doesn't HAVE deep emotions. Frequently still waters run deep.

Sensitivity and masculinity can, and should, definitely co-exist.

I reacted negatively initially because in my life experiences thus far, this so-called "sensitivity" has been synonymous with selfishness and manipulation on the guy's part. Nice girls are often easy targets...

Gay or not, WOMEN LOVE A GAY MAN. They are a female friend without the bitch and a male without the possibility of only wanting to get in our pants!

To answer your question, women love a sensitive man in the sense that they are sweet and caring of our feelings, understanding and not afraid to be a complete suck...but on the flip side...a devil in the sack.

Many (if not most) women look for attributes in a man which at first blush seem contradictory. They want someone who is sensitive TO THEIR NEEDS and is a good listener and emotionally available etc but they also want a man who is aggressive, masculine, controlling to a certain degree, self-confident, even someone who has flaws that only they can fix.

Chix be complicated, yo. But not at all outside the realm of male understanding, by any means.

I get what you mean. Many of the girly/sensitive guys that I know tend to be stuck up.

To a not-sensitive guy, a girly guy is hilarious/wierd.

Very true... there's nothing like a tough guy who is ONLY sensitive around you.

great quote.

The bottom line is that women don't want a wuss. They want a MAN who will stand up for himself and can take control of any given situation (CONFIDENCE!) without whining and complaining when things get tough. On some level, all women want a protector and a provider. It's primitive stuff, actually. All about passing on good genes to the offspring. strong man = stong children. Its similar to why men love a woman with great boobs and hips. they indicate good health and the ability to rear children.

^ You got it. You said you got laid lots - that's the attitude you need!

A boyfriend and I were watching some Chris Rock stand up routine. He was describing girls and guys. My boyfriend just turned to me and said "I'm totally the bitch in this relationship!" And he was. And many of the following were.

I just wish sensitive guys would fake machismo more. It's so refreshing!

I don't want to date an inconsiderate @$$hole but I don't want a prissy momma's boy either.

Haha, it's not fair. We have to look good, but also look like our looking good was effortless and we could care less about how we look.

You gals make us walk a fine line.
