How to Impress an Indie Rock Girl
To impress an indie rock girl, keep current on her type of music. (detail of electric guitar image by Thor Jorgen Udvang from

Indie rock girls like guys that are cool, but sensitive. Here are a few things that every indie rock girl is looking for.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Don't be a tough guy. An indie rock girl is more interested in an attractive man who listens to her than a guy dripping with machismo who wants to talk about his love of cars or his old glories on the football field.

  2. 2

    Join a band or have some other creative pursuit. Talk about your music, art, filmmaking or writing and you'll get her hooked.

  3. 3

    Keep current because indie rock girls love music. Follow up-and-coming bands on sites such as Pitchfork and The Deli magazine. When in doubt for what to do on a date, take her to a concert at a bar or art space. Most alternative weekly newspapers have extensive listings of upcoming events and writeups of hot new bands to watch.

  4. 4

    Take her to see a classic film or a low-budget movie. Read your local newspaper or alternative weekly's film section. Most major cities have repertory cinemas that show new prints of classics on smaller screens. Museums and arts centres also have film programs that you can pick up for free in the lobby.
