It sounds like you're overly concerned about fitting in. If that's the case, then you've likely come to wrong place! Try carefully observing what you see your peer group wearing and then compare it to the fit pics that are celebrated in the WAYWT thread. I'll bet your peer group dresses in a manner totally at odds with this forum's opinions. So expecting this forum to teach you how to fit in and attract cute girls via your clothing is likely pointless. If you feel boots may make you look "gay", then I would argue you are likely reflecting the attitudes of your peer group. Where else would this opinion have likely come from? If you feel this way, then it is likely others in your group do too. Thus listening to advice here will only push you further away from the attitudes of your peers. And I do understand why you would fear that boots make you look "gay", even if I don't personally identify with the sentiment. Try discussing fashion with people both in and outside of your peer group and you will learn a lot about the attitudes of different groups. Yet someone will invariably post on here "Boots gay!? WTF are you talking about?!?" It's as if they live in an insulated world whereby they don't spend any time questioning and examining the attitudes of their own group vs. other groups. Rather, they act like sponges taking in the attitudes surrounding them, and will then defend those attitudes as if they were the truth. This forum provides steady supply of solvent for the sponge.
