  • Wow, I love ur scale

    I'm 4-6, +I'm a sexy beast, +I'm smart/awesome/funny/vry supportive

    ++I'm a beast in the kitchen
    Also can comprehend a good bit of French and Spanish, but no place to use it so I might need a refresher

    P. s-no one needs to be modest on here, it's not like I'd ever brag in real life

What Guys Said 5

  • I think most guys would do grooming, exercise and diet- but many do not have their clothes down. They tend to throw things together, they really don't have a clue like women about dress sense.

    • You're right, but I think that is an American thing. Most foreign men I see are very fashionable, especially asian/latin men.

    • Show All
    • Nope. We don't dress like GQ magasine lol. Well some do, but the majority don't know. All guys need a girly friends or gay buddy to sort out their wardrobes lol.

    • Lol I like helping my male friends dress up.

  • I think this poll would be even more interesting if it could somehow be broken down by age. I suspect the older you get, the less concerned one becomes of it.

    Alas, since my wife's passing I confess I gained weight. At that time I think I would have fallen into category B. I have, however, since seen the error of my ways and am up to somewhere around C. I also confess I am hopelessly "fashionably challenged." My wife was of great assistance there. I must fend for myself now.

    Sadly, many people don't think of diet and exercise as grooming. I think they should.

  • I take showers and workout a little. No make up though :)

  • I'd say medium to high, but I'm just flat out ugly so that hinders my dating life

  • I don't need a diet i naturally eat less than most people and its really hard for me to gain any weight at all. I am toned. I watch my hair everyday and always brush my teeth because I hate the taste of my own breath. I don't need to exercise but I do it anyway because I want to be stronger than others and I'd like to make this body last a little longer. The only reason I can't date anyone is cause I'm not putting much effort into trying.

  • i do easy stuff like i pretty much wear cute dolly outfits everyday (just a dress + cardigan + jewelry, maybe some barettes) but i just put them on, takes a minute or two.

    i rarely have time to do anything to my hair or face except for the bare minimum, sunblock and a 20sec blowdry to the bangs. i carry cosmetics with me but rarely remember to use them. once in
    awhile i'll get invited to an important party suddenly so i try to be prepared.

    i do brush my teeth and use mouthwash !
    and never skip the skincare routine (sensitive skin)

    if i have time later in the day i'll straighten my hair a bit with my portable straightening iron. sometimes i get outrageous cowlicks and whorls :o

    • oh ! i keep a bottle of my favourite perfume in my purse at all times ♡

      no dieting or exercising.

      being unprepared when it's really important to shine does have a negative effect on a lot of social stuff. dating is fine though, no problems there, i guess they just assume i'm into the natural look or don't know how to polish myself.

    • You sound adorable!

    • thank you ♡

  • I am pretty lazy so I put B. I have been told I am pretty attractive though. I am thinking of putting more effort into my looks but I dunno.


    • I'm surprized no one chose god like effort lol. I put high effort into my looks, I don't feel that great about myself when I don't.

    • Well what is your daily routine?

      Problem with me is it is a pain in my ass to take of all my make up. Pain in the ass to diet and exercise. I am not fat by the way. I am normal weight. I wish I could see a picture of your god like efforts.

  • I put a lot of effort
    im very hygienic, wear makeup, eat right, exercise, take care of my hair and skin, eyebrows, hair and nails done

    when u take care of urself u feel good

    • That is so true. When I don't do shit I feel like shit.

  • 7-9 range. I like putting high effort in the way I look.
    I don't think it has any effect on my dating life. I just expect the person I date is healthy and takes care of themselves as well, and thats not too much to ask for.
    I think my effort is a good amount and I wouldn't want to put less effort in.

    • That's not asking for too much, it shou, be expected honestly.

  • Medium effort. I'm clean and smell good. I just don't put as much effort as other people. I never wear makeup or nail polish. I mostly wear plain long skirts, dresses with a random top. I haven't started dating yet but I do randomly get asked out.

  • I'm usually around a 4-6 but if I'm not feeling that, it dips down to a 1-3. "It really just depends on whatever feels good in my soul" - India Arie. As far as dating goes, as long as you can take care of yourself in some way, you have some game haha.

  • C-D. I'm generally well put together but I don't look immaculate all the time lol.

  • I voted C.

  • Vote d, but should be c
