If you think you’ll win some brownie points for showing up, think again – a hipster will never accompany you to the Justin Bieber concert you’re dying to get tickets for, so you won’t get anything in return except a massive headache. If that’s not evidence enough, consider the fact that Urban Outfitters has started selling bikes – and you can even create your own design for 0 or 0. While you shouldn’t discount someone as a potential romantic interest only because they have a bike, it does make dates a bit awkward.
He’ll never be able to drive you home and you’ll never share a sweet moment on the subway. If hipsters have done anything for the culinary world, they’re made scarily unhealthy food trends happen.
If you think that a hipster is a new thing – yet another Gen Y phenomenon that drives the media crazy, and that people write lots of essays about – think again.
The word was actually used as early as the 1940s to describe youth who looked cool. This trend really got started in the 1990s thanks to the popularity of grunge music.
Take the cronut, for instance: hipsters make the donut/croissant thing super popular. You enjoy an indulgence every now and then, but you have your regular healthy lifestyle to uphold. If you date a hipster, this is only one example of the trend junk food you’re going to end up eating. If you have dreams of a fairy tale romance – or even of just falling in love – then you’re out of luck when it comes to the hipster guy. Part of being a hipster, is being super low-maintenance, and swearing that you loved something before it became incredibly cool.
If you thought a single donut had a ton of calories, you won’t believe how many are hiding in this sugary treat: 1, 300. Hipsters walk around with messy hair and try not to show too many emotions (emotions are for the mainstream, after all).
And what’s so wrong with liking popular music and TV shows – aren’t they popular for a reason?Your friends will interrupt him in the middle of his always-buy-organic-vegetables rant and leave the room.Later you’ll get an earful about why you brought such a rude person to their party and why you’re with this person.Why do you need to feel bad about your one indulgence? You don’t need to give up your Starbucks addiction. Let’s face facts here: the hipster guy loves random bands that no one but him has ever heard of.He wants to be the coolest person on the planet, and that means discovering musical gems.
