Dating feminine men is just a little bit different than dating masculine men. Not sure what to expect? No problem! Just check out the following nine things that give you insight to what dating a feminine man is really like!
- You’ll Always Look On Fleek
Feminine men do their best to follow fashion trends or at least look good most of the time. They never go looking like a homeless person. Instead the put one hundred percent effort into their everyday looks. That means that wherever you go together, you will always look bomb! Everyone will see how glamorous the two of you look together. You will feel as if you should have a paparazzi following you around at all times, but of course there won’t be- Unless you’re famous that is.
You will also gain a nice pair of eyes to tell you when your outfits aren’t matching. Because, let’s face it, we all need someone to tell us that our pants don’t match our shirt once in awhile. We become blind to our own closets and a feminine guy will be right there to help you clean out that closet any day.
The downside of dating a feminine man that is so style conscious? They can get a little controlling about what you put on. They may want to coordinate every outfit or approve it before you head out for supper. He may even get cruel and make fun of some of the choices you make.
Or you may just want a day where you can wear sweatpants, but he isn’t having it!
- Sex Will Be More Compassionate
One of the best things about dating a feminine man? They are really passionate in bed. They are much gentler and caring than a meat head from the frat down the street. They care about how you feel when it comes to being intimate. They also expect you to care about what they are feeling. They expect equality. You won’t be faking anytime soon with them, because they always make sure you get to the finish line!
What could possibly be the downside of that?
Well, there is a chance that he will take sex very, very slowly in the beginning. This may get frustrating. He will be waiting for the exact right time, when the mood is right and when you are both in a good place. Some girls might appreciate that, but others may get a little frustrated waiting so long.
How many cuddle sessions do you need before you can get it on? He’s going to think that you need a lot. Building up the sexual tension is something that feminine men do well.
- You’ll Have To Deal With A Lot Of ‘Girl’ Friends
Which, in turn, means that you gain a lot more friends than you had prior to dating this feminine guy. He is probably going to have many more friends that are girls than he does men. That is because he will relate to them more and have more common interests with them than he will with macho men. You may find that he has a few guy friends, but they are almost as feminine as he is.
This can be tough if you have a jealous streak. Jealousy won’t go a long way with him or his friends, because he is not going to give them up just because you ‘have a bad feeling’. He knows nothing will happen between them and he won’t understand why you think something will.
The best bet is to not get jealous when you are dating someone who is feminine. They won’t take it well and it could possibly be the reason your relationship ends.
- People Will Make Assumptions (Maybe Even You)
About his sexual orientation. You might even have thought he was gay yourself. However, it is best not to say anything to him about it, because he is also very sensitive.
People might assume you are his ‘beard’. What’s a ‘beard’? A beard is someone who is dating a gay person to make them appear as if they are a straight person.
However, you both know that he likes women. Others might not think so.
This can be irritating. Especially if, everywhere you go, someone is saying, “Oh, you’re dating him? I thought he was totally gay!”
- He’ll Have A Strong Soft Side
Of course, you probably already knew this, but feminine men are extremely sensitive. This can either be a blessing or a curse, depending on what type of person that you are. He is going to be like an open book for you to read. You will never have to guess what he is feeling or what is on his mind. That is because he will always be apt to tell you!
He will also be sure to know what you are thinking and what your emotional status is like. Because, unlike your previous boyfriend who was oblivious to emotions at all, this new feminine guy actually cares. He operates his emotions like a woman would, but maybe a little less aggressively.
However, if you are looking for someone with a lot of empathy, a feminine man is the right man for you. Let’s not forget to mention that he will probably love watching romantic comedies with you anytime of the day!
Yet his sensitivity might get frustrating sometimes. You might feel like he can be a little too emotionally heavy about things. He may act like a brat just because he is in a bad mood. You might as well throw him a box of tampons and some chocolate for the way that he is acting towards you.
Some women do not like dating men that are too sensitive, because they already have enough mental emotional problems going on themselves. They don’t feel as if they need someone else to mentally babysit.
- You’ll Eat Right
Vegetarian? No problem. A feminine guy will respect whatever diet that you have decided to be on. He may be super into healthy eating, because he is always trying to watch his weight. You might find your fridge to be stocked with all natural items from the organic section of the grocery store. This can be nice if you are into that type of thing.
However, it can be annoying to deal with if you are not someone who is into that kind of food. Maybe you love junk food, but he might judge you for eating that cone of french fries from McDonalds. He may even get snippy about your weight in an effort to get you to control your urges.
You may start to also miss milk at some point, because he only allows an alternative, like almond milk, in the house. And anything with trans fats? Forget it! Also don’t even mention white bread around him. How could you?
- Hygiene Will Never Be Problematic
You will never again have to worry about telling your boyfriend to trim his toe nails or to tidy up his beard. Feminine men are all about that deep grooming. They may even put on a face mask with you a couple nights a week! Nothing wrong with that. You won’t find yourself in any embarrassment when the two of you go to important events. He will always look and smell his best. He will never fail to follow a cleansing routine on a daily basis. This makes you two seem like the ultimate power couple!
But he might grow to be a little anal about his appearance. This can get a little old, because it causes so much annoyance. It might take you an extra half hour to get ready to go anywhere and out the door.
- You’ll Have A Feminist On Your Side
Feminine men seem to show more empathy towards women. Most of them even consider themselves feminists and will always be on your side for any matter! He will always sign the petitions and go to the rallies with you, if that is what you want. He truly believes in equal opportunity.
- You’ll Have A Shopping Buddy
We all know that most men do not like to waste their time walking around the mall, from store to store, with us on those lazy Sunday afternoons. They would much rather be at home watching the football game, cracking a cold one open with the boys. But feminine men will gladly take the time to shop with you any day of the week. Not only because they are not really sports fanatics, but because they actually enjoy going shopping. They are all about fashion, trends and going everywhere their best dressed. You won’t have to leave him outside the store, sitting on his phone, waiting for you for an hour while you shop. Instead he will be there right alongside of you, telling you which outfits look better and which look horrible.
The only downside to this? That he might even take longer than you while shopping.
