I have noticed on here some girls don't like wearing skirt/dresses or getting all dressed up and stuff because they do not want people to think they are trying too hard. Others have said they don't dress up a lot because they don't like comments from others about why they are all dressed up or who they are trying too look good for. So my questions is two fold: Why do some girls not like wearing skirts/dresses and getting dressed up? Why nowadays when a girl gets dressed up people assume it's for someone else?
Most Helpful Girl
Part 1: Because looking nice takes effort. Serious effort and time.
You need to find a dress, buy it, make sure it matches your shoes and bag and hair(or buy new accessories) and then find matching jewellery.
Then you need to fix up your make-up and hair to make your look more even(so that you don't look weird with a beautiful dress and messy hair). You need to shave your legs and armpits and then apply moisturizer everywhere to make all exposed areas even. Some even apply foundation to even out skin tone.
After you've got everything together you also need to calculate what time of the month it is because sometimes you wake up and your stomach is bloated and then you can't wear the dress because you'll look slightly fatter. You also need to take care of your hair the night before because hair is highly temperamental and changes overnight.
Some girls also worry about losing the weight before dressing up, which is an additional effort.
Some girls just don't think it's worth it to work so hard for nothing.
Part 2: See part 1. Looking nice everyday is a long and tedious effort that most girls aren't willing to go through everyday. If you're doing it, most will assume you're doing it for a reason. It just so happens that the reason most people try to look attractive is to attract the opposite gender. While it's not always true, it can't be avoided.1
