    my obvious response would be to ask why you associate these things with being vain or a player except
    1) you have some anecdotal evidence and acknowledge that it is anecdotal and
    2) I am extremely vain myself, so I would be being a hypocrite
    thus, the question I will ask is, why is being vain a bad thing?

    I'm just dying to know what kind of jewelry you wear. I am now envisioning a man in a casino in Las Vegas in the mid-70's.

    I'm not sure I would quite call it 'taboo.' Some places you'll get odd looks, some places you'll fit right in.

    Same way with everyone.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    Oh, I wouldn't say all guys who I've seen wearing jewelry have been players/vain - there would just be a bit more of a trend in that direction, I'd say. It just seems a bit more likely that he'll be that way, from my personal experience with non-jewelry-wearing men, and jewelry-wearing men.

    Vanity - well, I find it unattractive as it suggests self-absorption. I totally agree with wanting to look good, but being obsessed with it or admiring yourself all day long, I don't find that attractive in another person.

    even I think it has it's limits. it's not productive to pamper yourself 70 hours a week, fun though it may be

    I think it looks repulsive on men, unless it's extremely discreet and has personal meaning. A plain ring or a very discreet necklace, some guys can pull off, if they aren't too distracting. The casual bead/string necklace things can actually look good with the beach bum look. But all those awful chains, gems, etc....

    I don't care if you wear them as long as I'm not dating (and therefore have to be attracted to) you, though.

    Elfboy why won't you just describe the sort of jewelry you wear or show us a picture?

    This all seems very strange to me that anyone would think it's so taboo unless it's more like cross-dressing.

    why does a man have to look discreet but a woman can look bold and attention grabbing?

    It's sexy when a guy can pull off an earring.

    It's embarrassing when they cannot.
    And so long as you haven’t experienced this: to die and so to grow,
    you are only a troubled guest on the dark earth
