Can I say “you are not my taste” instead of “you are not my type”?

Hi, I study English.

I think that saying “you are not my taste” is wrong but my friend does not.

Who is wrong?

Thanks 🙂

    “You are not my type” is the correct way of saying it. “You are not my taste” doesn’t sound like proper English. Another way of saying it is “you are not my cup of tea”.

    Taste relates to people’s appetite,or like a fashion when wearing something,it’s not to my taste.

    Relating to a thing rather than a living thing.

    However if you were in a relationship with someone you can say that they ”taste good”,if they have flavoured lip gloss on when you kiss them or have just had a sugared doughnut!!

    Type relates to a person’s personal likeness and is better to use in grammar relating to a human being/living.

    Therefore to say ”you are not my taste is incorrect. The correct form would be ”it is not to my taste ” relating to a non living thing, not relating to a human being.

    ”You are not my type ”is correct when saying to someone eg.to a boy/girlfriend that they are not your type of person.

    Hope this helps

    “You are not my taste” is wrong. You could say “You are not to my taste”. “You are not my type” makes more sense and is more commonly used.

    The saying “You aren’t my type” is less offensive.
