I would scoff at guys who would flex in front of the mirror, admiring their hard work, while I avoided looking because I was hardcore. I was busting my ass lifting weights, but I did not look at myself, I was too hardcore. I was more hardcore than those guys who spent hours in the gym getting a pump in their biceps. Yet they didn't look half bad. A lot of them looked decent. But what did those guys know, they weren't hardcore.
Note: This info will not apply to 1 out of every 10 of you. Lucky bastards.
I started a thread called about why we lift lift weights. I justified it as it being a big ego stroke. While that's true, it there is much more to it.
Ultimately, we want to be confident and attractive to women. Now, how many of you are willing to admit this to yourselves? I bet not many. Sadly, male sexuality is just something that doesn't get talked about all too much.
For instance, metrosexuals. That's a horrible fucking word by the way. Anything ending in '-sexual' is too similar to homosexual. I digress.
Metrosexuals get a bad rap on T-Nation. It's a very odd phenomenon. This whole damn website is devoted to getting big, strong, muscles which ultimately make you look and feel better about yourself. That's all there is to it! Well, what the fuck do you think metrosexuals do? They buy nice clothes, groom themselves, to ultimately attract hot women.
I used dislike the whole metrosexuality thing. I mean why the hell would you spend so much time on making yourself look good? A man's man wears flannel shirts and Dungarees. Yeah, that's why he's a MAN's man.
There's no infrastructure for male sexuality like there is for women. There's no denying that females have all the sexual power. Therein, lies a huge social problem for 99% of the male population. Do you understand how important this point is. Let me repeat it again.

Fuck, my dad's never said one word to me about how to pick up women. And my mom tells me that you have to conform to whatever the girl wants. My friends and I used to play sports all day growing up. When we got to high school we didn't really talk about girls because we sucked with women. I'm sure I'm not alone.
Bodybuilding and metrosexuallity are like kissing cousins. Two methods that men use to hopefully 'get the girl.' You know what though? Women don't care all that much how you look. Sure it helps. Just like taking a multivitamin helps improve your health. Steak and vegetables will do a whole lot more for you, however.
Confidence is what bodybuilders and metrosexuals are often missing in their lives. All the muscles or expensive clothes in the world ain't gonna do shit for you if you don't know how to talk and act around beautiful women.
(Incidentally, metrosexuals are more successful I feel. Anybody who's read or seen anything in the PUA (Pick-up-artist) community (and real lift, obviously) knows that wearing interesting , fashionable things makes you more attractive to women. The guys who are most confident and cocky, thus banging hot chicks, are also most likely to be a 'metrosexual.' As far as I've observed, it's true in Miami and in Orlando.)
Do yourselves a favor and look up David Deangelo, Mystery Method, Neil Strauss (Author of 'The Game'), etc. I have not even scratched the surface with what I've shared with you tonight.
It has answered a look of questions in my life, made me rethink the way attraction really works. It really demystified a part of my life I've been trying to avoid like the plague because I knew nothing about it.
