I find when I wear pencil skirts I move more like an NT. Would wearing a pencil skirt to a date make me seem too uptight?

So you have a date?

Excellent!

What's a pencil skirt?

Only suitable if you're a thin person. Makes a woman look feminine.

Pencil skirts are narrow at the hem so naturally you may change stride.

I don't think there is "walking like an NT", you are walking like someone who can't move their legs wider than a certain distance.

Obviously it depends on the skirt and the degree to which it is narrowed.

I tend to nervously pace. When I pace it makes me look very weird and non-NT. When I wear pencil skirts I just can't do that. I look like an NT wearing a pencil skirt instead of a pacing weirdo. I notice formal wear in general makes me less fidgety.

You can't go wrong looking good.

It's very feminine, the pencil skirt.

Perhaps having hugging clothes, makes you feel more comfortable.

It can be due to tactile feedback.

I think so. I've never felt comfortable wearing overly baggy clothing. Pencil skirts also restrict the way I move and force me to not pace.

Not only suitable for the thin. Look at Joan on Mad Men. She's my younger daughters size and both them wear those. With the right foundation garments it looks great even on curvy gals.

I think the skirt is great, just make sure it's suitable for the place you're going because it's a little classier than McDonald's and a movie would require. Also some of the dates I had when I was single involves race cars, gun range, cave exploring, and rock climbing and I wasn't prepared of that, so always check first. Luckily I was single back when the uniform of the day for almost anything was jeans. :-)
