The Hipster


The hipster is the male seen on campus who refuses to conform to popular society. He thinks all things mainstream are beneath him and wishes to explore a more obscure world. He takes pleasure in telling people about new trends that they’ve probably never heard of. To get inside this indie world, study the behavior of the hipster.

Natural Habitat: During the day, the hipster can be seen riding his fixie around campus, as he finds cars and gears to be abominations to nature. At night, he can be found at the local dive bar listening to a band no one has heard of before. Up for the bars with wood panels and grungy crowds and look no further for this type of boy. His drink of choice is Pabst Blue Ribbon beer and he is often seen outside of the bar smoking American Spirit cigarettes.

Appearance: A true hipster takes a page from Macklemore and does his shopping at a thrift store. He wears t-shirts with ironic pictures or sayings and pairs them with possibly too skinny jeans. In warm weather, he can be seen wearing cut-off jean shorts, or “jorts.” Regardless of how well he can see, the hipster often wears glasses, usually with thick black rims and possibly without lenses.

Character Traits: The hipster takes much delight in knowing about a trend before the rest of the world. For example, he will be a huge fan of an obscure band until they become famous. As soon as other people start to like said band, the hipster will claim the band “sold out” and tell people how their early stuff was way better. The hipster will avoid things mainstream, at any cost.

Prey: The hipster’s perfect woman is Zooey Deschanel. She is quirky, plays many instruments and is extremely “adorkable.” Often also attracted to their female counterparts. They lust for girls with similar style, plaid tops, skinny pants and tall cans in hand.

How to Capture the Hipster: Linger around their favorite dark music venues or local combined coffee / bike shops. A great way to start a conversation with a hipster is to ask them about their fixed gear bike or for help on your own. All men like it when you show an interest in their interests so you just have to tailor this to the hipster’s likes: obscure music, bikes and organic foods to name a few.
