Yes. I care. It is, to be quite honest, one of the main factors in whether or not I fancy someone. First impressions matter, and everyone is shallow to an extent. I just find some sense of personal style very, very attractive. You don't have to be styled to perfection, some guys can just roll out of bed and still look hot in a cool t-shirt and some jeans, but I always feel that there has to be something unique and different about the way they dress. I like guys with longish rockstar hair as well, and the way someone dresses often hints at their musical tastes (sad but true) and I tend to go for people with the same interests, so it makes sense. However, I will admit that when it comes to shoes, I am unbelievably shallow.
It does kinda for me but only because I couldn't stand to go out with someone who kept wearing chav-like gear - it's just so unattractive to me.
Other than that most other types of clothes don't bother me at all.
I notice clothes quite a lot. A guy with a good dress sense is a bonus, but as long as they don't wear anything horrendous I'm OK with it. I also tend to like guys with a similar style to me, as it indicates musical tastes, as someone said.
However, the thing I'm worst on is hair. I'm so shallow when it comes to hair! Someone can be pretty cute, but I might go off them if they had a haircut!
As long as they aren't wearing nothing but a shopping bag it's fine by me. Pretty much.
It matters a lot to me... depends how highly you value clothes and style etc...
often a girl's style will make her more appealing to me, pretty girls all dressed in 'high street shic what Sienna Miller's wearing this week' just sorta merge into each other and don't stand out... I like quirky girls, who try to be that little bit different.
Am I a bad person if I say yes?
I could never date a person that wears skate shoes. Part of the attraction for me is what they are wearing, I like to think I make an effort and I expect them to do likewise.
They clothes show their personality, so i would never go out with someone wearing big tracksuits and gold chains beucase i know that would be chavvy.
i think clothing expresses your personality and so does your other. ie would a goth really date someone dressed as a chav in front of their goth friends?
as long as he doesn't go 'chav' then i don't care.
even bright yellow trousers would be fine. ha.
p.s - stop being so shallow... if girls want to wear baggy clothes, then thats their decision. just because you want to gawp at their boobs in skin tight tops doesn't mean you get to... get over it.
Yes and No. I've nearly been seeing my boyfriend for two years now and I generally like the way he dressed, possibly because it was the first thing I noticed about him from "afar". I know he wears what he likes and he feels comfortable.
I wouldn't like it if he dressed like a "charv" or anything daft like that since that's not who he is. And I'm sure he wouldn't like it if I did either.
