go for weird-looking, or just generally weird, fellas?
Christ knows I've tried but they don't.
they do. ok? tell me why
you have AIDS. stop whining, its making you sound more ridiculous
that wouldn't really work out due to the lack of sexual compatibility
and the interesting looking ones have naturally tried to make up for looking weird with having good taste in music/film/books/clothes etc.
with the added bonus that i don't look like a gimp. yet they won't go near me
but I think its innate. I once fancied a boy on the bus who was clearly special needs (he was with a massive group of other special needs people) but he was just so smiley and good-looking.
violently boring, lost and conformist?
I don't really know, I'm just a beneficiary really (depending on your definition of 'indie girl' that is).
has an interest in good music. not so much going on what they look like but where they socialise
but I still pity you.
The world is just NOT that dull a place. Sorry.
is a pretty good advantage though, being that I spend much of my time at gigs.
Films as well.
Clothes not so much.
dis is broken
just people who look like gimps. i don't mean 'interesting' weird, i mean 'look at the cut of him' weird
I DON'T UNDERSTAND. Haribo- you need to be more specific.
i guess, yeah. like you'd struggle to see where the physical attraction is
you might think they are ugly or just not notive them in that way when you first meet them, but their personality turns out to turn you on.
i'm not weird-looking, but i am fairly plain and very skinny. is there hope for me? because it seems that girls are just not interested, be they indie or otherwise. should i attempt to look weird in a desparate effort to impress those girls i speak of? because i'd imagine, personality-wise, i'd get on terrifically with 'indie' girls
fucked up world isn't it
Just be yourself.
maybe you need a beard. skinny + beard = hot
I'd say more scruffy facial hair than full-on beard though.
but if you're constantly on your own you tend to question these things.
Stop being so exclusive. Why shouldn't uglies be allowed to taste the joys of All Bar One?
i mean really good-looking girls with really dodgy-looking fellas.
girls only listen to music to attract men. Is that not assuming girls are calculating and clinical about their choice of partners.
otherwise people just get wound up :)
generally, girls are more attracted to personality, whereas men are wore likely to be attracted to someone good looking. It's human nature, maaan. or something.
women are every bit as shallow, if not more so, than men. fact
women in general do not sleep with weedy/skinny/dodgy-looking fellas.
man will frequently sleep with overweight/ropey-looking girls.
this is a fact.
i think you might be contradicting your own findings here
'women in general'
i thought the distinction was clear, obviously not clear enough
i don't know, i haven't done a survey or anything, it's just in my experience.
just thought I'd clearly label that
'there are plenty of overweight, happy, spotty indie couples who probably spend hours in record shops together and holding hands at gigs and having sweaty awkward sex in the dark. who is to deny them that happiness?'
that sums up my first year of uni pretty much.
i'm a bit of a short chubby ugger with a thing for cute-in-a-weird-way twee indie girls. it works out fine for me!
indie girls seem to go for lad that are fey and skinny but conventionally good-looking. I'm fairly unorthodox-looking (face like a bulldog chewing a thistle, basically) but they don't seem so keen on me. You just wouldn't credit it.
this wasn't meant to go here
but my bf is a fittie, thanks :)
that you object to? I can't think of any typical indie girls shoes.
EVERY FUCKING INDIE WEARS THEM
Indie girls, as the minority, seem to be able to take their pick of the indie boys, and as a result are always with guys that I would consider attractive.
If your hypothesis is correct, perhaps it’s because indie girls like their men like they like their music/culture/films/art: interesting, imaginative, and not conforming to a median of society’s expectations.
Think less, get laid.
but look relatively normal, is this my problem? You shouldn't judge a book by its cover, I'm a freak inside.
two of the theories lol.
cos you're wrong if so, douchebag.
He likes Household Names/ Lookout! stuff
I forgot how sensitive indie boys can be. Just playing.
Why is it here? ARgh.
Here is how it is. Indie is a subculture predominantly favoured by boys, albeit shy boys with low self-esteem. Girls who go in for it are two things: a) slightly wierd in comparison to normal women and thanks to said above conditions b) able to be more choosy than they would otherwise be. The upshot of this is that they will always have a boyfriend, but their predelictions will not always make much sense to you. Got that?
if they're more choosy, why go for weird-looking gimps?
because they are likely to have had relationships with normal good looking people, found them unfulfilling, strayed leftfield as a result and are now working on a different set of contingencies they look for in men.
I haven't got a boyfriend
you have AIDS. honestly, stop whining it makes you sound even more ridiculous.
it's odd, and it hurts :(
They either have that horrible lego-style fringe thing going on or just have generally greasy, scraggly, tangled up hair.
Indie girls fail.
might be a slight trend in that they don't necessarily go for men you try to keep withing the mainstream demographic, also maybe wierd looking geezers get slightly more excluded from mainstream so to avoid being down the mainstream pecking order fiond they can exist happily as indie boys (of course this will only be a slight tendancy in the larger scheme of things as many people come quite happily and through positive choice, to indie)
talking really weird tartrocker
and its already ruined the word 'indie' for me from now on
What images do the word indie cunjur up?
I'm crying :')
