Seems like your surrounded by extremely superficial females.
For me, the way a guy dresses generally doesn't have any effect on my opinion of them.
I mean, sure- if a guy looks cuter in a hoodie and jeans than he does in, say, a nice shirt and dressier pants (or whatever) then I'm obviously gonna prefer that look on him.
Your problem could have something to do with society's view of "nerds" as a whole- I mean, when I think "nerd" I think "weak, impotent, and possibly intelligent", so if you're dressing as a nerd or whatever, females may instantly categorize you as someone that'd be boring to talk to, someone who'd be a poor lay, or someone too physically weak to... I dunno, do whatever it is a man needs to do in a relationship. D8
if that makes sense.
But yeah. Maybe you just look dumb when you're decked out in nerd gear? =P
The only time I negatively judge a guy on his outfit is if he's wearing female clothes or he's 'sagging'. I just don't appreciate the sag.
I will honestly say that I am very much attracted to guys that dress or act oddly in some manner. I wouldn't call myself superficial. I don't shun guys for their outfits or anything. It's just certain things are more interesting to me.
I don't care how a guy dresses, it's all how he acts toward other people and myself that influences how I feel about him.
Yeah the way a guy dresses does affect my impression of him. People have control of how they dress so if you dress a certain way you chose to present yourself like that, so it must say something about you. I don't like guys who dress nerdy because I'm not attracted to nerds. I'm sure if a guy saw a girl wearing fishnet stockings, a tiny minidress with her butt almost hanging out and cleavage spilling out they'd think she was a slut? Why? because how you dress says something about you.
of course. haven't you ever heard of the phrase dress for success? people judge you on your appearance
