  • Those are mutually exclusive traits. Mainstream is a fashion and style thing, while quirky is more behavioral. When I think of a quirky girl, I think of someone who is unabashed about her little personality ticks and hobbies, and contradictions and such. Quirky can be a very entertaining and charming thing. Imagine a girl who loves to knit, while she listens to death metal.

    Someone could have a quirky sense of fashion though. That would the kind of girl who goes to yard sales and stuff to buy eclectic clothing and then mashes it all together.

    A quirky fashion sense would be a bad thing, for me at least.

  • That’s funny I’ve used the same term to describe my last girlfriend. When I used it I just meant she was not typical, that she was different but in a good way. She was unexpected and did things uniquely that were intriguing. I feel in love with her quirks it’s what made her who she is.

  • Quirky is relative to what's typical of most people. Often times in adventure movies or romantic comedies, the main protagonist has a close friend or several who are intended to be quirky.

    Think Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter. And a lot of roles played by that actress who plays New Girl.

  • weird, not like other girls. It could be good or bad you have to listen to inflections. I think of Phoebe from friends as the quirkiest fictional character I know.

  • the word quirky has been ruined for me by basic ass people thinking they're special and applying it to themselves, doing cringy/flat out strange shit for attention.

  • I see quirky as interesting. These days most of the girls you see out and about are just clones. Whatever makes you stand out or "quirky" embrace it, mainstream is overrated and boring
