I ask this question because I am starting to realize that a lot of men get caught up in women's appearances. I have noticed that a lot of very handsome men go for very plain appearing women. I don't mean this in a negative way what so ever I think its a wonderful thing that these women can catch wonderful guys (very gorgeous men at that) and keep them. These men fall head over heels in love for these women and I have always wondered what do they do that makes them so attractive. So I did my own experiment.
I went on a date with a guy without any makeup on I was very casual just wore a t-shirt and some jeans w/sneakers. We hit it off phenomenally! I was comfortable and didn't feel like I had to put on a show. And he liked my personality which is what I wanted him to focus on the most. As most men seem to only focus on a woman's appearance on the first few dates. He asked me out again and ever since then we see each other on a day to day basis. He can't get enough of me! I do dress up but on occasion. I found out that men appreciate beauty more when its given sparingly. Naturally I don't really like dressing up any way so when I do dress up he really does appreciate it and voices it to me.
So my question is do you think its a bad thing to go on the first date w/out any make up on? Or do you like when women wear makeup to look more attractive/prettier for you? Also is it better when we are just our complete self around you when there are no walls put up. Just our open complete self?
I guess some men actually find really hot girls intimidating. With you not dressing up and wearing make-up you are probably less threatening, meaning the guy feels OK to be himself and isn't too nervous or worrying about f***ing it up and saying the wrong things.
When a girl puts a lot of emphasis on her looks I've found that usually it's because they don't have much else going for them (as in a personality, sense of humour, intelligence etc.) They need to look hot and sexy or the guy will get bored of them quickly.
I actually prefer girls who just wear a little make-up.
I was wondering this too... I have a crush on a guy at my gym, and I usually get there with mascara on since I've been in class or work, but if we went out I'd be confused... I don't wear makeup anywhere, anytime so I'd be afraid Id look caked on or do it wrong if I did put it on haha
Awesome, sounds like youve found a great guy :) I did something similar :P
I think you're confusing a correlation with a causation. Your guys may have treated you like crap when you made yourself look good and this guy may treat you nicely when you didn't work on yourself, but that does not mean that not wearing makeup will make a guy treat you better than he would without it. Most men are visual and everyone looks best with makeup on. Just don't overdo it, keep it natural, and most guys will appreciate that the best.
