Now that aside, why would it matter to you what your significant other, partner, boyfriend/girlfriend or a date drives?
Here is an example car that you can bash on like the female GAG member mentioned before. PS. You can mention Safety but keep in mind the above car has same Safety rating as Honda Civic. Plus it earned high ratings in Microcar territory in US as per IIHS testing.
Because car=penis that's why! Why u no get this? House=penis car=penis money=penis everything=penis. Because penis most important thing. Even people with no penis no penis is most important thing. So good car=good penis. Penis size no matter though only quality penis. Not size of boat motion of ocean. And me Poseidon you can tell by me car. *Grunt* *grunt* *scartch* *burp*
Why does it matter? Well to some it won't. To others it will. To some the fuel efficiency car will be a turn off if the woman perceived it as feminine, to others they will value the the man being smart with his money.
It's not much different than any other characteristic, quality, trait etc. That women judge men on (or men judge women on).
Some people will see it as shallow, but how many of the same women will judge on height? As an example. We can all sit here all we want and call each other shallow, but in fact pretty much everyone has SOME sort of shallow preference. In general the shallow desires can be overcome by a great personality, or more desirable (subjective) traits. But for the most part they are there, and we can't help or first impressions of people. We can deny them and try to talk ourselves out of them.
Also to be considered though is the askers age. She is 18-24, so pretty young. Especially if she is on the lower end of the age bracket.
I don't give two shits about what anyone drives. What matters more to me is if the inside of the car is mostly clean or if it's filled with trash and other things. My boyfriend used to drive this car that was really old and the air conditioner didn't work. It was the worst, especially in the summer. But it didn't make me think any less of him.
That girl is incredibly shallow. You can tell not only from her question but from her comments to people on there as well. I don't think her opinion should be taken seriously.
That being said, I don't even care if he drives. For years, I was interested in a guy who just biked everywhere. I never got to date him because he wasn't interested in me, but if he'd have given me a chance I'd have been ecstatic.
For me, I am someone with social anxiety, so it takes a lot for me to like a guy. If I do like a guy it's because we connect well. It's someone I can have a conversation with. If I can actually have a conversation with someone, that means a lot more to me than what car they drive, how much money they have, or where they live.
Right now I really like this guy who just had to move back in with his parents because he's in debt. However, I have no anxiety talking to him. We joke around with each other all the time. I've been able to tell him things that I don't tell many people. He understands that I have anxiety and he doesn't care. I don't know if he likes me back, but we do get along.
I wouldn't know. I know nothing about cars. I don't care about cars. I don't have a driver's license. I see nothing wrong with using public transport or taxis. I walk to most places and take the tram or bus when I have to. I don't expect anyone to drive, that's their business not mine. It also doesn't determine my attraction for someone, or whether I'd date them.
If we are talking about just dating no i dont really care. But we talking about a family that includes kids and their things to carry, then that would be necessary. Driving makes our life easier sometimes. I sincerely support public transportation though if it is available.
She must've been a material twat, personally as long as this guy has a car and can drive me safely home and places. Then I'm satisfied with the car... Some girls are materialistic when it comes to car, they want their guy to drive the most sexiest and expensive car like a Porsche, granted that car is expensive and luxurious but it's only a car.
I think the smart cars look a bit silly but i wouldn't rip on a guy or turn him down just for that. From what that post said it sounds like the girl was meh about him to begin with. What really matters is that the car gets from point a to point b safely and doesn't smell like garbage. ain't nothing wrong with fuel economy cars! I drive one myself (if a hyundai elanta really counts. i mean my dad got it for me because he said it saves gas so yea).
Just as long as he has a car that works well and is reliable! Last guy I dated fixed cars, which was cool, but they were constantly giving him trouble with the oil, tires, etc. It just got annoying, and I feel like he sometimes used it as an excuse to back out of dates.
i don't care what kind of car my boyfriend drives. right now he has a beat up old Volkswagen golf. it doesn't make me think any less of him. if i wanna have a nice car, I'll buy one myself. i don't need my man to have one.
Those women are secretly Gold diggers or attention whores. It's about status and being in a small car like that reeks low status. Even though I'm sure it's a good vehicle and saves fuel costs, it doesn't look like a car a man with a lot of money would drive.
I'll keep the safety rating in mind if you keep in mind that the safety tests are conducted at 35mph. My cousin was an EMT and anytime they were responding to accidents involving a Smartcar, they brought the bags and alerted the coroner. At highway speeds, you might as well be inside a soup can. They're built to pass the tests at the speeds that they run the tests, not protect you at speeds you'll actually be driving. Crumple Ones only work if your car is big enough to HAVE them. Occupants are nearly twice as likely to die as if they'd been in a midsize car.
That's so sad and stupid if what car a guy drives has any influence on their attraction towards him. I mean there is no logic in that whatsoever unless all they are interested in is his wallet which is completely superficial...
There's small car and there's "smart" car, driving the latter just means you have rather shitty taste in cars. It doesn't say anything about your character, aside from fact that you either don't care about what you drive or don't know what a good car should be like.
How the eff can you complain about that car there are PLENTY of POS'S cars out there. Plus if you save on gas thats a couple thousand dollars a year that you can spend on memories and not food for the car.
I mean yeah it gets you there in one piece, kinda pathetic how some women will gather behind the idea to stop shaming each other but when it comes to males they are happy to berate them all because of societies expectations.
