I fancy someone I know, but his taste in girls is so different to me I'm wondering if it's worth going for it or if I should leave it. He's not my usual "type" (I usually date guys who are quite similiar to me, but he's the stereotypical very academic type of medical student and I'm considering trying out someone a bit different).
He's really into electronic music and the hipster scene, and I think he has a type in women too. Most of his exes have been quite "quirky," "artsy" and "alternative" kinds of girls who liked to smoke, went to all the unknown clubs and knew how to "talk hipstery" and discuss electronic music. On the other hand, I am quite conformist in most ways (sporty, girly, very un-hipster etc.) and my taste in music is very mainstream. I don't know anything about art either.
They've also looked very different to me (short hair or bobs, sometimes coloured or really highlighted, and a "stand-out," "different" and "cool" look too - lots of ripped band T-shirts and so forth). I look the complete opposite (without sounding arrogant, I'm fairly physically attractive in the "stereotypical", boring, Hollywood way - long hair, slim, nice face - but my look is very classic and unimaginative - I wear a lot of skirts and dresses - and I don't look half as "cool" or unique as any of his exes).
I'm not changing for him, obviously, but do you think it's worth asking him out if he seems to have such an obvious taste in women that's different to me?
And you fancy him because...?
