Why do girls care so much about what they are wearing and take so long to get ready? I don't understand why it matters so much!

Ever heard of symbolic thinking? I don't think any girls actually consciously think about it...they just want to look their best. It takes time to put together a few coordinated outfits that are apropriate for whatever you are about to do (work, dinner with boyfriend's parents, etc) and then try them all on (make sure it fits right and is comfortable enough). And that's just clothes. You've got hair and makeup after that. Smokey eyes sends a different message than natural eye shadow. Bright red lips sends a different message than a light pink. (and the colors/look has to fit in with your outfit). Same thing goes with hair. Appearances are important because it speaks for you. Whether we like it or not, our appearance (and ultimately who we are) is judged by others.0
