He can go to a fancy restauraunt and talk about politics, but will not watch your barbaric favourite football team pound your heated rivals into the ground. He will woo you with roses, chocolates, and erotic poetry, and then escort you to bed for a sensual night of love making.

(And quite a few who fit into both categories, who really have trouble).

I've always found it amusing all the women on the SDMB who claim to be attracted to nerds and geeks. And yet the nerds and geeks all have so much trouble getting women.

Harimad-sol, will travel for geek boys I disagree with the definition of a "manly man" having poor hygiene. The five food groups are beer, meat, meat, bear, and meat.

A "real" man takes care of his tools, and his body is the most important tool he owns. He's got a whole line of paper towels named after him! I do shower because if I don't then I will offend myself long before I offend anybody else.

Really, to think that a guy who does manual labor doesn't shower the second he gets home is one of the silliest things I've ever heard.

But hey, I guess the poll had to skew for the metrosexual somehow, and that was the easiest way. Regarding the metrosexual, you forgot to add that he won't kill any bugs or deal with any pests..have to kill the giant spider, because he's more afraid than you are. Is it that the nerds and the geeks have somehow magically all been born in different cities from where the women who love them were born? Is it that the nerds and the geeks have somehow magically all been born in different cities from where the women who love them were born?But again, he's muscular, has some manly stubble, and can sweep you off your feet to go make passionate, hot, primal, animal-like love to you. He could go on and on for hours about cars, hunting, and sports, but you can't have an intelligent conversation with him about anything else. In this, somewhere in the middle is way better than either end of the spectrum. It's the "won't shower for days at a time" bit that puts me off the so-called manly man, and the metrosexual as presented seems too involved with his appearance.And NEVER ask him what he's thinking about, the answer will always be "nuthin'," "food," or "women." A 'metrosexual', on the other hand, will be very clean. He showers daily, moisturizes and shaves to give his skin a silky smoothness, and dresses well. I don't think I could stand a man who was afraid to break his pretty nails.Is it that the nerds and the geeks have somehow magically all been born in different cities from where the women who love them were born?Or are people maybe not wholly realistic about what actually attracts them?(I, for one, will pick learning about the engine over keeping my manicure perfect any day of the week. He is usually clean, though sometimes a full day and night of gaming can give him some off smells, but he will gladly shower. I'd bet that everyone on these boards knows better than that.
