Does it matter if a girl doesn't shave her arms?

I never paid attention or even thought of it until one day I noticed the girls around me had totally bare, shaven arms. I have very fine blond hair so it's practically invisible. I tried shaving it and get razor rash. So does it really matter?

  • Lol, I don't shave my arm hair am I suppose to? I mean I do have arm hair, it's blonde though. That seems like just more work. Shaving my legs is enough of a chore.

    • >>>>>>"am I suppose to?"

      ^ lol no! -- you're not supposed to if you don't want to. xD Girls' arms look nice either way.

      I think the only time it would be a problem is if the girl's arms were as literally hairy as a gorilla or something hahaha, but I've never seen that happen.

    • "Shaving my legs is enough of a chore"

      I know, right? There's a lot of area and if you nick an ankle it bleeds and bleeds.

  • Unless you have thick or very dark arm hair, I think it is silly for a girl to worry about shaving her arms.
    I actually feel bad for girls with thick or really dark arm hair, because it is noticeable, and it is a bit of a turn off (not a deal breaker, but... not desired, really) and so they feel like they have to do grooming and shit other girls don't have to/aren't expected to do

  • Hairier arms have been linked to higher sex drives in women. The last thing I care about is what a girl shaves or doesn't shave. Are you fun to be around? Do we laugh and smile, flirt and make eye contact? Do you like to go on adventures?

    • Good to know. Maybe I'll grow it long and braid it.

    • Well it just occurred to me maybe guys were grossed out by it if all the other girls have smooth arms, and maybe that's why I can't get a date.

    • For some guys, a lot of things gross them out. I have no idea, but I have a name for these guys, it called babies. If a little hair is going to stop a guy from dating you, do you really want to be with someone like that anyway? A real man should go after you no matter what. Is it a relationship you're looking for? Because I find it highly unlikely that no one would want to date you, more like the communication wasn't there. Guys are dumb, we need it to be made obvious to us that you are interested so don't blame yourself.

  • No hair on arms is nice

  • Luckily for you it's not so bad because it's not as obvious, but unfortunately I think it does matter a little bit, for most guys anyway I think. There are probably ways you can find of doing it that won't give you a rash though.

    I tried shaving them and it was nice for a while but I gave up on it like the 3rd time. Thank goodness my arm hair didn't grow back much darker or thicker.

  • I shaved my arms a few times as a preteen because I was scared that my arms were too hairy. Now I really couldn't care less, plus I realize that the hair on my arms is all blonde and you can't even see it unless you're in a certain light.

  • I've got some hair on my arms but it's fine and blondish. There's just no way in hell I'm going to shave my arms every night haha. My hair grows to fast for that shit. No way am I got to have stubbly arms at the end of every day. It really isn't a problem and isn't noticeable. If someone doesn't like me because of the hairs on my arms they can take a long walk off a short dock.

    • Well, I only have to do it about as often as I shave my legs.

    • Show All
    • Hah... I only shave about twice a week. Maybe because it's winter.

    • At this point I do too but in the summer it's at least every other night. No way I'm adding my arms to that routine haha.

  • To me? Not in the slightest. There are some people who don't mind their own business though.
