    What are your thoughts about dating a white collar type guy who is well educated, smart, handsome, and a complete gentleman. Someone who always act accordingly and appropriately with such social grace and precision. Someone who never loses their cool, and someone who is always well mannered, classy, cool, and collected. To give you some visual images:

    Think along these clothing brands: Brooks Brothers, Hermes, Farragamo. If you're in your twenties, think the guys in Gossip Girls and you'll get an idea.

    Now, don't write them off as complete geeks and nerds. Having good taste and being classy doesn't mean they're not athletic. They'd usually engage in sports like equestrian, polo, tennis, golf, yachting, sailing, rowing, etc. So what do you think about dating these preppy type of guys? I personally like them; all of my BFs have been these type of guys.

    Your thoughts?


    * post edit / addendum: They also tend to like art, classical music, ballet, opera, etc. Stuff with rich traditions. So if drinking English afternoon tea Victorian style is your cup of tea (yes pun intended) while listening to chamber music in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, yeah, dating a gentleman might be for you.

    You can dress them. That's the good thing about dating guys with good wardrobe sense. They pay attention to the combination of their skin tone, and how it plays into the cut, fabric texture, color, and how appropriate their wardrobe is for the event, and if their "aura" fits with the outfit or not. It's an art, really.

    More like horny backstabbing beasts wearing expensive labels, right?

    I think you're confusing personality with appearance. I know many guys who dress like the men in those photos who are complete disasters on the inside. And I know guys who walk around in shorts and flip flops who really have their shit together. So is it the man on the inside you're seeking or just a look? Because trust me....the two are not synonymous!

    A gentleman is not for me, I tend to be the white collared one.

    I prefer a rugged unrefined beast to a gentlemen. Just me though...

    I'm not confusing personality with appearance. It's a combination of looks and personality obviously. Anyone can put on a suit and tie but it doesn't make them gentlemen.




    calibro saidbasically, you're asking how would i like to bang a rich dude in a suit?

    lol

    Banging is a part of dating. I'm also asking would you be interested in doing activities that are more gentrified in nature. I know some of the stuff I listed like sailing is fun, but equestrian....? -_-

    Guys like that aren't really my type. I wouldn't exclude someone who was like that, but it's unlikely that we'd have anything in common.

    They don't exist in reality; only in the fantasy of your mind and the writers' of Gossip Girl.

    I'm really not a TV watcher. What is this Gossip Girl of which you speak?

    And for the record I like my men a little rough around the edges and more masculine than what you present.

    I think you're a bit confused. People who wear those ridiculous clown suits do so in an attempt to magically compensate for lack of education and intelligence.

    At this point in my life I wouldn't mind dating a somewhat snobby yet always respectable gentleman. My last bf was complete white trash who could barely throw a complete sentence together much less hold an intelligent conversation. So my next bf needs to be as smart if not smarter than I am....

    That's probably why your last relationship didn't work out. Psych research suggest that intelligence is the main reason why a couple stay together or not. Which makes sense....if you cannot agree on subjects because of (his) lack of intelligence then you'll either get discouraged or bored in the relationship, then it's all downfall from there.

    Yes your next BF should be a smart guy icon_smile.gif you'll be happier because you can see more things eye to eye

    Yes. Ive said before I usually seek out guys who are "young, dumb, and full of cum" but I think I've switched my tunes in recent months. I usually don't mind those kinda of guys if they are just a trick, but since I've been actively out there trying to find a LTR I have stricter criteria about who I want in my life.


    I'm not even exaggerating, my ex was not the brightest crayon in the box. I want a partner who will show me new things and help me grow for the better. I did not get that with 6 years with my ex...
