preps=all of the above +making ppls social life a misery,think they have the right to judge things like movies music and people.
To truly put it, a prep is a person who is attending or has attended a prepratory high school (which is usually Catholic or in some other form religious), and has moved on or plans to move on to an Ivy League or other prestigious college; in recent times, preps have favored more sporty colleges in the Midwest than prestigious ones. Their family lineage is generally in establishing business(es), banking, has had a hand in city-founding, or is a political official.
Sports are extremely important to most preps, and often are accepted to colleges on athletic scholarships. Tennis, lacrosse, field hockey, golf, swimming, and soccer are popular sporting choices for most prep students. Schooling is very important, seeing as a general minimum of $10,000 per year is put into a prep school for one student. As for college, it is extremely rare to find a prep student planning to go to a community college.
On a last note, preps are notorious for wearing, on a normal day, sweatpants and t-shirts from school and eating more than most public school students and still maintaining their ideal body-type (perhaps the food is burned off in sports and excercise?). On weekends, events, and nights-out, prep girls are expert at dolling up in high fashion without looking unnatural, and the guys also know how to clean up if needed to be, also.
It is a common misconception that preps are self-centered and are oblivious to the world around them. In reality, a prep does not care about how other stereotypes view them, because it does not interfere with their social and educational lives. Much of a student's money is donated to fundraisers while in school to organizations working for relief in many poor South African, South American, and Asian countries. Preps don't pay any mind to people who do not understand their classy lifestyle.
13-year old brat: MOM. I need more like, jean skirts. Now. Don't make me call daddy!
Misled Person: Ew look at that prep.
Actual prep 1(obviously after a soccer practice): *Snorts*
Actual prep 2: Tell me about it.
Middle School kids.
You will rarely find a true prep between these ages. Well, at my school I never did. They thik that Abercrombie, Aeropostale, and Hollister are the true clothing stores for preps. They try and act ditzy so thats what they think what they should act. And, commounly use the word like and OMG! They dont like the classic style they go for What's hot and which one makes me look cute. So basically, if you are a tru prep and you in Middle School. Then, I say good luck for you.
This is where you'll find more true preps. There are fakes, but more because they might understand the concep a little more then middle school. There isn't as much too say about this group except a true prep:
a.)does not go to the mall stores
b.)uses a classy style not what's new and hot
c.)this is a iffy dont pop the collar
d.)aren't ditzy or bossy
e.)dont make fun of the other social groups
f.)never label themselves
real prep's response-HOLLISTER is place where true ladies never go
they wear Basic Polos usually bright or classic colors, slacks(khakis, plaids, seersuckers), occaisionally jeans, in the summer cargo shorts and shorts similar to the pants they wear, ribbon belts, for shoes we wear birkenstocks, topsiders, penny loafers, and occaisionally classic type sneakers (ie old tennis shoe type sneakers) ou clothes are usually bought from J. Crew, Vinyard Vines, Lacoste, B.Bros, and if we must shop in any of the mall "trendy party prep" type stores we shop at AE which is the most classic and preppy of those (AF, HCO, Aero)
A prep is always courteuos, kind and respectful, they are the kind of people that grandparents and parents look at and say" hes a fine young man"
a preppy lifestle consists of living in a nice community and contrary to popular belief we dont always live in huge houses and you'll never find us living in homes labled as mcmansions, our homes always have archetectural value and are always tastefully and classicly decorated, in our garge you will typically find a car such and a volvo, vw, audi, bmw and occasionnaly another european made car, we participate un lifelong sports such as crew, golf, tennis, sailing, swimming, and sometimes lacrosse
and most importantly WE GO TO PREP SCHOOLS, day or boarding
What most people have to come to realize is that prep is a lifestyle enjoyed by a fortunate few of us it isnt a clothing style, it includes how we live, how we act and what we do
Older Prep 2: A fine young lad indeed, I wish my daughter would find a man like that
"Fancy that! I am in quite the mood for some sailing."
"Come to the dock half past two and we can embark on our trip. Bring along Molly, too."
"Great. I will see you then. A great preppy way to spend a Sunday."
Person 2: Wow, she is such an annoying little bitch with no life, huh?
Generic Prep 1: Hi Amanda! Look at my new shoes!
Generic Prep 2: Wow, Ashley! There the same shoes you have about 30 pairs of, but these ones look shinier!
Normal girl: She probably bought them with daddy's credit card.
Preppy dude 1: Hey Brad, nice new Hollister shirt!
Preppy dude 2: Thanks, I have a million of these.
Normal dude: Friggen' man whore.
