Are the Days of the Meterosexual Man Numbered?

With World Cup fever slowly taking hold there seems to be a suffocating amount of testosterone wafting around on the breeze, as the men in our lives work themselves up into a frenzy of team talk, statistics from previous world cups and result predictions.

As the boys puff up their peacock feathers and swot up on their football knowledge, we’ve teamed up with Surcare to find out what type of men Manchester girls really go for. Do we like the well turned out pretty boy (highlights optional) who’ll wine and dine us, or would we prefer to be hit over the back of the head with a club and dragged away by the hair by a ‘real man’?

Relationship expert Dr. David Holmes of Manchester Metropolitan University, said: "Psychologically speaking, there two ways in which rough 'n' ready characters appeal to women.

"Firstly, they represent the successful hunter of our evolutionary past. This is the scarred dirty man who will bring home the kill and expect his reward – NOW! He will sweep you up in his powerful arms and defend you against all fears making you feel secure and protected. He'll drag you away from your family home and take you back to his lair. He's not the pretty squeaky-clean boy you can take home to show mum."

Holmes added: "Secondly, these men can also appeal to the 'mother' instinct in women. Females are attracted to wayward strays they can mother, nurture, tame and train."

So that’s what he thinks. But what about you? Do you like a man who takes longer to get ready than you do, or are you more attracted to the rough and ready caveman type? Are the days of the ‘Metrosexual’ man numbered? Have your say now by casting your vote on the right hand side of this page.
