I can guarantee you, that if a girl is interested in you, she's not paying attention to what color your @#%^ing watch band is. Just sayin'.
Trust me, I know that. But there's a big difference between a guy that dresses well and a guy that dresses like a slob. That was the point I was trying to make.
Also, it makes a difference to me. It doesn't matter that no one notices, it matters that I know. It's like when you're sleepy in the morning and you put on mismatching socks and you only realize it when you're halfway into your day; no one has or will notice your socks, but you know, and it makes you less comfortable.
I might not be deterred from someone in the first year of the relationship or so by watch bands, but it can be a factor and I totally appreciate when someone can dress well.
I mainly find it to be a confidence thing. When you're a slob who doesn't know how to dress themselves and doesn't work out, you don't have much confidence in who you are. It's mental. And no girl, no matter who she is, is attracted to a guy with no self-confidence.
Sounds like a stereotypical woman to me. *shrugs* I get what you're saying though Kali. Stupid things can be a tipping point for me too, if I'm already thinking about ending things. But having a watch band match shoes or a belt is not something that would bother me at all. Granted I'm not really all that into fashion. I like wearing cute clothes, but I don't tend to think about whether or not stuff matches.There's been more than one occasion where John has had me go change because what I was wearing clashed lol.
You're not into fashion at all, from what I've gathered. Which is cool, but lots of girls are. Or at least they'd definitely notice a guy that dresses well next to a guy that doesn't.
I wish I could show before/after pictures, because it would be way more evident how drastic a few changes in clothes can be. I went from baggy faded jeans, running shoes, and graphic tees to slim tailored dark wash jeans, loafers/Purcells, and blank athletic cut tees and the difference is pretty huge. It changed perceptions people have of me, frankly. Humans are visual in nature, and even if the price tag isn't that different between articles of clothing, fit and color is everything.
