Want a date, guys? Ditch these fashion fails
They’re dumpy and dorky, silly and bulky, and way too long, usually falling so far past the knees that grown men end up looking as if they have short little elf legs. The bigger problem, of course, is that the shorts are completely inauthentic in that nobody, except maybe MacGyver or Indiana Jones, needs that many pockets and the men who insist on these shorts are, alas, neither.
Yes, to the dismay of people of fashion, men have continued to wear cargo shorts, apparently unconcerned about their appearance and also unconcerned about being authentic — though in the age of not-so-real reality stars, alternative facts and fake news, perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised.
According to a recent study by the dating app Hater — it matches people who hate the same things — guys who love cargo shorts are the least likely men on the site to get a date.
Which, in the interest of public service, brings me to other warm-weather dating deal breakers.
Guys, if you don’t want to spend the summer alone, you’ll need to stop wearing these things.
