Ladies, would you be more inclined to show interest to a cute stranger if he was dressed similar to you? What if he were dressed up more than you? Would you feel a bit intimidated? Like he's too good for me. I'm asking because I always try to look my best in $200 jeans, nice button-up shirts, $140 nikes, etc. But the girls here are usually in sweats and a hoodie, and I'm wondering if I am making them feel a bit insecure and less open to me because I'm dressed a lot nicer. What do you suggest I do to catch a girl's interest?

I get where you are coming from man. I dress the same way, and in high school, it sometimes ooks like you are trying too hard I guess. Also, I wear dress casuall sometimes, nice jeans, sneakers, a tee, and a black denim blazer. I think it looks really sharp, but I the girl I'm after always thinks its gay that I dress nice. I don't dress gay, I just dress up.
I would say in response to you, that yes, depending on the girl, it will hurt your chances. A girl that wears sweats a lot will probably be intimidated by your percieved success. Girls who dress up like you do though will like the way you dress. So if you are after the sweat pants girls, try maybe cutting the button ups out of your wardrobe. The nice jeans and sneakers are always ok though.
My biggest tip when trying to look sharp but not intimidating. Dress the way everyone else does. then add one thing every day that maybe makes you look a little dressier, or unique. (a nice watch, a nice jacket, something they wouldn't expect)1
