naturally clean cut appearance, dresses well (mainly prep gear), and is very aware of his hair, skin, etc. Constantly looks in the mirror to look perfect from head to
toe. You could usually tell who has the pretty boy look (school, mall, etc.). Some are popular, which is why pretty boys are cautious of their image as to satisfy themselves while not
necessarily impressing others, although pretty boys are checked out ocassionally by girls, and well, boys too (in reference to attractiveness, or envy). Always wanting to look good does affect ones personality, as most may come off as prissy, stuck up, annoying, or definately conceited. Some however are outgoing and friendly (the ones who are aware both physically and socially).
Often also used to describe a male who pampers himself appearance-wise.
Boy: "Fuck him. He's just a stuck up pretty boy"
Girl: "Who gives a damn? I'm in love..."
Most "pretty boys" possess a high level of self-confidence which borderlines cockiness and arrogance as well as a high sense of self-awareness most consider to be vanity.
While they tend to enjoy making people smile, spending time in front of the mirror and complimenting themselves, most do not like to be called "pretty boy" but, instead, well-groomed or well-maintenanced because the term, used as slang, has also been referenced to homosexuality:
pretty = nice looking (female)
boy = young man
pretty + boy = a boy whose looks resemble that of a female (perhaps in a pink polka-dotted dress)
Preferred terms: Well-groomed, handsome, handsome man, handsome male, well-maintained, well-maintenanced guy
He enjoys smiling, making other people smile and he licks his lips so much it looks like he's doing a commercial for Carmex.
