Are men more vain than women?

I have noticed that my brother takes a longer time to groom himself than me! My male friends likewise. How about in your experience with your man or boyfriend? I am really beginning to believe that men are more vain than women. What is your take on this?

May be your brother and your friends are the exceptions?? As i know, 80 % of the female take a much loner time to groom themselves than a male, they have to set their hair style, choose the custume, do the make up,choose the shoes,etc.,but I cannot imagine what a guy need to groom, all they need to do is put some hair gel onto ther hair and put a suit on their body. It may only take a few minute. I do not have a boyfriend but according to my past experience, it seems that men can finish grooming quicker than women, but there mus be some exceptions like your brother and your friends.

Well, I guess so. I was also wondering because they would only put on gel and then comb their hair, but they would take a long time infront of the mirror! Maybe you're right, just in my case. I even have a friend (he's metrosexual) who puts a lot of cream on his face (which I don't really do). I don't know what's up with them, really! Thanks for the response!

There are certainly some men who are more vain than women. However, generally, I would think that it is women who are more vain. Men often want to look and behave macho. To appear vain would project them as being sissy and unless he is in certain trade or industry, men tend to be more vain than women in all aspects - dressing, make-up and appearance.
