What was your worst first date experience? Presumably it was worth grumbling about more than this picky lady’s anecdote.
The popular girls’ Internet forum, Girls Channel, is a place where many women congregate to chat about all kinds of topics: not only date talk, but pop culture, hobbies and health as well.
One woman seeking validation for her bad date experiences took to Girls Channel to write out the sordid details.
Title: Is it OK to wear cheap fashion on your first date, or no good?
“......When I checked the tags, I saw his coat was H&M and the overshirt was from Uniqlo! I was kind of disappointed he wore such casual fashion even though it was our first date together… Oh, by the way, I couldn’t tell how much his shoes cost but they looked like cheap leather ones.”
Girls Channel operates on an “upvote” system, so the most approved comments quickly rise to the top. At the time of writing, the top comment is a curt one:
“I can’t stand people who only care about top brands.”
The other high-ranked comments are similarly damning, and definitely weren’t rushing to validate the woman’s hasty judgement about her date’s style choices.
“And who are you to judge, exactly?”
“If it suits them, I don’t really care at all.”
“I don’t like people who check other people’s brands that thoroughly.”
“I actually prefer people who aren’t concerned with fashion, haha. But guys who are obsessed with brands are kind of a turnoff.”
Perhaps the most cutting remark was “What, and you were dressed head-to-toe in Chanel?” which drives home the point perfectly.
Most of the commenters seemed to agree that so long as their date was clean, dressed appropriately and an all-round nice person, they really couldn’t care less how they were dressed.
As another commenter mentioned, “sounds like you care more about the way he’s dressed than the guy himself”.
