Years have since gone by, and now she's a grown woman, but seeing that leather jacket still brings those feelings back. Do girls really choose guys based on weird criteria like having a fashion mullet or a John Stamos jacket?
The fact of the matter is that girls stereotype you in the first 2 seconds when you approach them.
They are afraid they will lose you as a friend if you get cooler.
Many people harbor a secret resentment towards anyone with high social value.
In any event, she now has a strongly held belief a guy with a fashion mullet is sexy, and there's nothing in the world that's going to change her mind.
A third girl I spoke to told me she immediately liked me because I had the same leather jacket as Uncle Jesse from an old sitcom called "Full House." In this case, we know the exact source of the the idea that "a guy in a black leather motorcycle jacket is sexy." As a young girl, she had a crush on John Stamos, the actor who played Uncle Jesse.
So how does one harness the power of sexy stereotyping?
