Alt-Punk to Prep

I don't know if it is the political mess or growing to age and my maturity levels changing with time. The issue is that I used to dress super alternatively, want to cover myself with tattoos, and I would only date those like me. Now I'm sort of repulsed by punks. I see how juvenile they are. I sort of want to be a well-dressed prep with a few tattoos showing now. I'd gladly date someone without tattoos. Any other ex-punks feel the same way?

The people who want to be "edgy" and stand out- be they punks, tattoo fans etc are just doing it all in the same way...just so they can belong to a group.

I was into punk long before it turned into an identikit bore.

The worst thing about old punks today? They're the fattest XXXX T-shirt wearing slobs of all time.

There is something super juvenile about it. Lame commies who have never worked a day in their lives.

Doesn't sound like you were a punk at all. Being juvenile sounds young at heart. If clothes and tattoo's are what you consider a scene to be than man have you missed out. Just because people don't have tattoo's doesn't mean they're not punk, juvenile, or preppie. Maybe they just don't like needles.

You sound shallow. I've met several people looked punk, but were more considered with the look rather than the politics of punk. Becoming a pretty typical Vancouver coffee shop patron is suitable for you since you're more interested than looking a part, instead living any meaningful ideology.

You triggered them. Now they're offended cry-babies, which is even worse.
