Would you date a girl who reads?

Guys, would you date a girl who is more into reading than shopping and make up?

I really don't have much fashion sense or know how to apply make-up much, except for your basic stuff like nail paint and lipstick (and even that when I have to go somewhere very classy). I am more of a person who likes to sit somewhere quiet and have a good intellectual discussion with a few people. And I am thin, yet I go for loose shirts and jeans.

Do guys only like "girly" girls? (no offense to those who like shopping)

  • Yes I would! Reading hints of intellect and its a big plus when a girl has something between the ears other then just shoes and ponies.

  • I don't have the choice: I married one. Since I had quite a lot of books too, we had enough doubles to start the (missing) school library when we joined our possessions.
    10yrs ago we moved to another city. First thing I did was to show her the way to the local public library. Now she comes home once a week with a caddy full of books. When we bought a second residence we did the same. Now the first afternoon of our stay there is a trip to the library.

    • Aw that's pretty awesome! :D
      Lucky you and your wife!

  • Reading is a plus intellectual discussion a plus, quiet is fine, hiding your body and projecting you don't want to be seen as physically desirable is a minus.

    I'm sure you can find people who would like you exactly as you are and wouldn't want any change.

    I will just throw out to you that being quietly bookish doesn't have anything to do with whether you're physically looking good. Men don't care about fashion but do care how you look.

      I don't try to hide my body...Its just that I prefer loose clothes, they are more comfortable. But to be honest actually I am thin and don't really like it.

  • I'd choose the reading girl rather than the shopping girl myself.

    Why? Well coz I also like reading more than shopping plus we could read together its kinda romantic and sexy you know...;D

    • Are you from India? So am I :)

      And thanks for the opinion!

    • Show All
    • Yea I mean, I've checked every new site and never found anything so meaningful like this site. Mostly because I never needed any help but here there are so many people who seek others opinion and it makes me happy to help by sharing my opinion, coz I have lots and lots of it.

    • "happy to help by sharing my opinion, coz I have lots and lots of it."
      Haha! Ok. I will keep that in mind if I need any help :P

  • Seeing as I spend most of my time hidden away behind a stack of books, I generally tend to exclusively date girls who read at least as much as me or at least, somewhere close.
    Besides, I find girls who are more worldly/intelligent/aware than me irresistibly attractive

  • That's the weirdest fetish I've ever heard. I could never be with a girl like that. That's just way to freaky for my taste.

  • I read a lot and I suggest looking for a guy who does. My experience is they often get "jealous" of the attention you give the book rather than them.

    My ex used to get annoyed that I would read while he played video games, instead of watching him. And we were in our late twenties :|

    • Haha! He wanted you to just watch him play?
      What fun :P

    • This was a very intelligent man, mind you! So I'm hoping my next guy is a reader too. Then we can read next to each other :)

    • That'd be nice! ^_^
