猫系男子 Máoxìnánzǐ

Since: January, 2013

Origin: Japan

Meaning: Intellectual man, who loves staying at home and pursuing perfection by working.

As it always happens for New Chinese Words on the web, the ones describing men and classifying them into different categories usually come from Japan first. So 猫系男子 máoxìnánzǐ too started to be used in Japan in order to describe men who love staying at home, who want to do everything in a perfect way and who are imaginative and creative but, sometimes, have some problem in socializing with other people.
