In case you are wondering, "D" is my husband -- Dave Liu! As you've probably noticed, I don't update this blog often but I may post more as I've linked this to my Google+ account.

I can't even remember what we were originally talking about, but in the middle of a conversation between D & me, he threw out the term metrosexual. "Metrowhat?" I asked. I am so behind the times. This word is apparently all the rage now (or peaked and already on it's way out), and I've only just heard about it.

I finally did a Google search to find a decent definition. had a somewhat interesting article on the topic - they also go on to define the related terms SNAG (Sensitive New Age Guy), Renaissance Man, Primp, Martha Studly and Skexual.

A little more digging led me to an essay by Michael Kantor where he discusses why he hates the term metrosexual. It was a well-written piece which prompted me to poke around further on his website, The Calico Cat. It's one of his blogs where he writes about business, economics, law, politics, and current events. Further investigation is warranted, but so far, I like what I see.

P.S. I once asked my ex-boyfriend (while we were still dating) whether he was gay. He was highly offended. Now I know - he's metrosexual.
