Though the metrosexuality was confined to the heterosexual men who love to invest their time, money, and efforts to lead a sophisticated yet elegant lifestyle by blurring the lines of typical toxic masculinity, now this concept is globally adopted by many people regardless of orientations and genders. Hence, you can be anyone to be a metrosexual. Unlike, in the initial years of the millennial era; the current generation-x has nothing to do with your sexual orientation and gender identity to be tagged as a metrosexual. But not everyone can maintain this particular extra lifestyle label along with their orientations and identities.
Along with heterosexual men and women, a few people from the LGBTQIA+ community also lead the perfect metrosexual lifestyle which reflects their choices, tastes, likes, preferences according to their social status, financial status, and employment power. People from the business background, rich family backgrounds, elite work atmospheres belong to this particular category of queer metrosexuals. Hence, if you belong to a completely different category and if you are dating someone who is queer and also a metrosexual, then you need to know how to get along with them by understanding them!
Be prepared to handle your partner's obsession with elegance and maintenance because your metrosexual partner always thinks about his/her appearance. You could be a simple person who maintains a low-key profile, but your partner comes with high maintenance in every single aspect from tip to toe!
You can never stop your partner shopping because metrosexuals are mostly shopaholics. They roam around elite fashion spaces to deck up themselves according to the fashion trends. They don't mind taking vacations for just shopping and nothing else. They make you go crazy with their escalating wardrobe. You may feel some of your partner's shopping habits as unnecessary, but for them, shopping is just a habit to spice up their metrosexual lifestyle, indeed, they treat it as their hobby! So, you must be patient enough to tackle with your partner's shopping habits.
If you are just a regular person, then you need to increase your knowledge of the concepts of maintenance and lifestyle attributes. Metrosexuals love to hang out with someone who can acknowledge their choices. So, if you sound dumb or feel useless to know about brands, labels, and various sophisticated choices, then you may feel difficult to be with a metrosexual person. Psychologically, we all humans like to be with someone who can understand us. You don't have to transform like your partner but you can still choose a perfect watch or a perfect dress according to your partner's taste right. Hence, you need to know the lifestyle preferences of your partner.
One need not have to worry about financial management with metrosexuals because they know how to lead their lifestyle without interrupting with unfortunate consequences which may suffocate their routines. They spend more because they earn much. They always maintain a healthy financial equation when it comes to spending and saving. Sometimes they love to spend on things just to show off their riches and social status. You may feel it ridiculous if they spend on some annoying art, but for them, it's a part of their collection. So, don't try to overstep in the process of controlling your partner's finances. They are well aware of taking care of their money.
Metrosexuals are generally busy because of their work schedules and lifestyle management. Hence, sometimes they find no time to tell you those magical words. It may irritate you to the core. But try to understand the situation. High earning incomes and business turnovers always come at the cost of hard work and energy-draining schedules. To lead a perfect metropolitan lifestyle, metrosexuals work like machines to earn loads of money to spend at the end of the day. So, don't misunderstand if they miss calling you or talking to you for a while. They surely make up the whole time with a grand gesture, just for you!
Try to socialize with biggies and other metrosexuals whom you may think like a bunch of high school grads talking about their silly expenses and ridiculous investments. It will be difficult for you if you come from a different background. Instead of cutting yourself out, try to make a connection with your partner's circle. Because, for you, it may not be a big thing, but for your partner, presenting you as his/her partner can be a proud moment. So, try to think from your partner's side too!
Metrosexuals are unknowingly boasting. They just throw their rich lifestyle tantrums all the time. If you get irritated, try to express it instead of bursting all your emotions at a time. Communicate with your partner and try to make your partner understand your way of leading a lifestyle. If you think you are opposite to your partner's choices, then you must sort it out to come up with a balanced lifestyle, if not your silence may give your partner an advantage to dominate your choices all the time. Don't let it happen.
It's hard for two metrosexuals to be a good pair because opposites attract. Metrosexuals generally find simply sophisticated personalities as the attractive ones, but that doesn't mean they follow your simple lifestyle choices. Even though you don't like spending bucks on spa services, regular hair rituals, purchasing the trendy glamorous range of fashion and makeup, you always end up being a plus one to your partner's maintenance appointments. So, if you love a metrosexual, get used to their standard lifestyle choices.
