Do you feel more attractive when you're tan?

For some reason this summer I'm determined to be tan as fuck, and it's the first time in like three years I felt this way.

Im sick of being pale and looking... well... sick. Some people can pull off the pale look, I just look perpetually tired. I feel like I look 50x better when I have color to me.

  • Eh, I like to get enough sun not to have a farmer's tan, but any more than that, I don't think it's really worth it. I would prefer to have youthful, less wrinkly skin for longer (and minimize my chances of skin cancer), than temporarily have a tan for a few months.

  • It would take me so long to tan - If I just do my normal thing in a tshirt , my face and arms get tanned but it is impossibility for the rest of me to tan - If I took my top off, the glare would be so bad, planes would crash.

    • HAHA aw yeah, that was my skin at the beginning of my tanning adventures this summer. I've got a nice healthy warmth to me now, though.

  • Yes, i feel more attractive when I'm tan because i have blonde hair, and people say that guys with blonde hair and pale skin look sickly, and that if you have a tan, that the contrast between your hair and skin looks better.

    I envy dark haired guys partially because they can actually pull of the pale skin. And being 99.9% German, its extremely difficult for me to get a tan. I have to go through several, excrutiating full body sunburns before it actually turns into a damn tan 😩

  • If i go in the sun I'll burn than tan but my dad always
    had a much better chance at tanning than me he got
    a cousin whose dark hair and dark skin looks Italian
    but no she is German ancestry but she could always
    tan really good.

  • If you feel like you look better tan then do it. But i just want to let you k. ow a lot of guys like pale girls. Just look at different dating forumna, there are a lot of black and hispanic dudes who are obseesed with pale girls. You might lower your attractivness to those guys if you get a tan. Just keep that in mind.

  • Well my skin tone is naturally is an olive/tan color and I don't like it when a girl gets a really deep tan. Maybe a little is good but I also like it at their original skin color too.

    Not to sound in anyway offensive or discriminatory but I think tanning is really only for Caucasian individuals. Us brown don't really need it.

  • Your skin doesn't look too pale in your profile pic! Nonetheless, you should think about whether you want tanlines or not and tan accordingly. Personally I prefer if a girl doesn't have them--especially up top.

    • I don't really have the privacy to tan without a top on outside, so I'm going the tanline route.

    • That's a shame! If you ever do find yourself in a place where you have that option, you should take it!

  • Do sunless tanning. You will regret UV tanning later in life. Trust me.

    • Sunless tanning looks cheap and tacky 99% of the time, I'll pass.

    • it's actually gotten better. Go ahead and soak the UV. You'll be bullet proof forever...

  • Just be careful! It is hard for pale people to tan without getting lots of sunburns. I know this because my sister is hella pale, but my skin tone is like a weird yellowish pale when I am not tan. So when I go out in the sun all day I come home with a tan, and if I do burn it turns into a tan within 24 hours. My sister on the other hand will look like a lobster if she stays out in the sun without lots of sunscreen (not even tanning lotion can help her). And her burns are serious as fuck, they usually end up blistering and all that gross stuff. I suggest if you want to tan wear like at least 20 spf sunscreen and apply it how ever many times it says to. You will still tan, just at a slower and probably safer rate. Or you could go to a tanning salon (still not great for your skin but I mean yolo right?) and they can probably help you out in finding what will help you not burn. Happy tanning :)

  • Not at all. I look like a Geordie shore slut with a tan. plus I don't want to look like a leather couch when I'm old. So I just keep it vanille with stracciatella.

    • maybe you're getting over tanned and thats why you look like that? besides, people look ugly old anyway. why would you hold off on looking your best now so you can look better when you're old? doesn't make sense

    • @astroidblues no, I basically almost not get tanned. Sunburned most of the time, but because my hair is super blonde in summer, it's lighter than my skin then and it just doesn't look good.
      Depends how old. I want to still look good when I'm 35 you know. Not all wrinkly.
      Also, I don think tanning is really healthy for you.

  • Yes I like being tan, wouldn't have it any other way. I like the process of tanning too. It kinda burns but I don't know I like it lol... Plus tanning oil smells devine. I think for some people getting tanner looks more attractive.

    But I know plenty of gingers, redheads and raven colored hair that can definitely pull off being pale.

  • Absolutely not.. Quite the opposite. I'm satisfied with my natural skin tone whenever I get a tan I become super dark but not even in a normal way I get some weird odd tone.

    I really hate the sun 😒

  • I've literally only been tan once in my life. I just don't tan easily. People say you look better tan. It's probably true but I've just decided to be content being the pasty white ghost girl at the pool. (The one with the 8 different sun burn lines) :)
