Do woman really judge us on what car we drive?
The easy answer should be no, but after taking a quick poll of the office, it actually does matter to most women. Whether you're driving your grandpa's old pickup or a brand new Mercedes, women will take note. A man's car (clean vs. dirty, old vs. new) is an extension of themselves and can tell us a lot. It's not a deal breaker in any relationship (phew), but where we definitively draw the line is the type of men who obsess over a piece of metal with four wheels. NOTE: When your Facebook profile page has more photos of your car than your girlfriend? "Houston we have a problem."
Ellen: "It feels superficial saying this, but I definitely judge a guy by his car. Even if you have to buy a used Audi or BMW, it shows you have good taste and good style. Although those qualities aren't necessarily deal breakers for me, they do show that you and I may have similar interests, which is always a plus. I would never date a guy based on the car he drives, but driving a nice one certainly doesn't hurt. So, yeah, I'm judging you."
Logan: "If a guy has a nice car and takes good care of it, that can speak volumes. I grew up with a brother who has a car obsession, so, yes - I do judge a little. Just don't get a ridiculous color if you want me to see you as a grown-up, keep it clean, and if the engine is wheezing instead of revving, it's got to go."
Jane: "I really don't care about my boyfriend's car. He's borderline obsessed with it, but compared to some of his friends, he's tame. To me, the type of car isn't important; it's how he takes care of it. If a man takes care of his car like a newborn, maybe that means he'll actually take care of me (slash a newborn) with the same precision and carefulness. Who cares if it's old .... is it clean? That's what I care about."
