The term is used to refer to men living in cities (“metros”) who consider themselves to be `sensitive’ and `romantic’. These people are always immaculately dressed and spend a lot of time in front of the mirror to make sure that they are looking their best. Unlike the ordinary `guy’, a metrosexual is not afraid of showing his feminine side; he may come to office with his fingernails painted. He is usually fairly well to do, loves to shop and spends a lot of time and money on clothes. A metrosexual may or may not be gay. Mark Simpson coined the word in 1994.
