Then there's "obvious celebrity emulation." We have to wonder about this one; how much does this guy know about celebrities?
When a girl goes out and gets the same haircut as her favorite celebrity, and even dresses like that celebrity on top of this, it is obvious. "Oh that girl thinks she's Katie Holmes."
As far as we can tell Katie Holmes' only fashion distinction is that she dresses in expensive clothes. In fact, does anyone over sixteen consciously imitate celebrities so much that a guy would notice?
And finally, there's gaudiness. "I know it's nice to have some bling, and giant rocks, etc... but it will really make me think I can't afford you." Hm… if a woman's sporting expensive stuff it probably means a) she has a lot of money and buys it herself, or b) she's expecting you to buy stuff for her, in which case if you can't afford her she doesn't want to date you! Or she's just trying to look nice, and isn't thinking about how much her outfit cost—there's always that chance...
Thanks for that, Rich. Here are five male fashion and grooming choices that turn us off.
A shirt unbuttoned so that a little hair sticks out. You might as well rub Velveeta all over your chest, because that cheese is stinky!
Ragged, dirty fingernails. We used to bite our fingernails so we understand the compulsion, but if your nails are dirty and bitten to the quick we have a hard time getting excited about having your hands all over us.
Greasy hair. Even though you might not have as much as us (or much at all) it's still important to keep your locks clean. That way we can run our fingers through them or give you a nice scalp run without worrying about grimy fingertips. Plus greasy hair tends to smell.
Slick, rock-hard hair. Yes, we like firmness, but not on your scalp. Again, the running our hands through your hair thing—we want to do it without impediments.
Muscle shirts. Relax, we don't need to see your muscles just yet. Nothing says narcissism like a nice, tight muscle shirt. Let us discover your manly physique when we remove your shirt.
