  • I don't know. I think I dress cuter with my boyfriend. I get upset if I feel pretty one day and I end up not being able to see him. When I met him I was wearing sweat pants. I still wear sweat pants but I think I like dressing up even more now. It sort of felt weird before. I didn't want people thinking I was trying (for attention or whatever) because I wasn't. And now if I dress really cute, it's obvious I'm not trying to show off, because I'm next to my boyfriend the whole time. I just like having fun with my looks. It changes the way I feel and I like that. I never really dressed slutty, although I try to have "sex appeal". The more I think about it, I definitely dress with a lot more confidence now. I'm not worried about trying to "find someone". I never was. I haven't really dressed for guys since I was 15. But a lot has changed about me since then. This is an interesting question. I hope you realize that it would be almost impossible to generalize these answers. It depends on the girl. And when I say that, I mean not just her personality, but her style, past, self worth, etc. Just me... I think I dress better now. But I don't think I dressed bad before. But that may have nothing to do with me having a boyfriend. I may have just grown

  • I began dressing sexier for my boyfriend when we were together. But had always put a bit of effort in when I was single as well. I never really had a problem with my dress sense until my boyfriend actually criticized me daily over everything I wore. I am girly, I wear a lot of dresses with tights and flat shoes. When you actually try and put effort in and your boyfriend is still horrible to you, it doesn't really give a lot of self-esteem. He said I should bin all my coats and that when he had money he would get me all new clothes. He made me cry on a number of occasions. When I asked what he would like me to wear he started taking me to old granny shops, with big woolly cardigans. He started saying he would buy me clothes at Christmas, I refused, said find someone else to criticise and dumped the moron.

  • hmm interesting…

    i put more effort in, but not much more. I don't change my style. I just enhance my presentation. so instead of going out in trackies [or sweatpants as you call them] ill wear jeans. I never wear anything over the top. like too tight or revealing. I'm very classy with my style but I can make it look sexy when I want=]

    stuff like that. but I dress firstly for myself and when I feel good bout how I look, it reflects on him and others notice it=]

  • Not at all. I always have the same fashion style more or less. I dress for myself, not for others so being in a relationship wouldn't change that.

  • Personally I dress no different. I know that a lot of girls dress up to impress guys, but slack on all of that when they're in a relationship just because they don't think they need to impress the guy any longer. I think that I shouldn't have to dress up to impress a guy in the first place. I wear jeans and tee shirts and sneakers all the time, because it's comfortable and it's what I like. If a guy doesn't like me for the way I dress or look then he isn't worth it anyways. The only reason I dress up is if I'm going out somewhere nice or to a social event. Otherwise I just dress casually and if I'm not leaving home I won't even bother changing out of my pajamas, because there isn't a need to. I just don't understand taking hours to get ready in the morning to impress guys. I think that a lot of girls just waste time on guys and relationships that won't work, because they take all this time to look like what they're not and what they end up looking like attracts the wrong kinds of people. I honestly encourage other girls to dress for themselves and not others. Why should you waste your own time dressing to impress a guy for a relationship that might happen and even further only might work out? I realize this was lengthy, but it's my full opinion.

  • I wear what I want more now than I did when I was single. That may be a maturity thing though. Like if I like something and it's not trendy where I live, I'll wear it anyways. Single I wouldn't have done that. I embrace my own style more that I'm in a relationship. My style isn't girly at all and that may put off guys but now I don't care. I'll wear combat boots, a chunky chain and flannel if I want.

  • Nahhh I dress the same single or taken. When I feel like getting all cute I take my time. Others I just wear shorts and a tshirt. And it's weird because sometimes wearing the same exact clothes on different days I have different reactions from people (men specially)

    Sometimes I give a very "I'm ready to be fcked" vibe, others I'm just a normal "whatever" chic.

    • "I'm ready to be fucked" vibe. Is that just a vibe or do you mean literally? If you were dressed like you were ready to be fucked and a hot guy approached you would you be willing to fuck or is it just a vibe?

    • Lol is just the vibe. I never dress slutty. And I don't have casual sex

  • if I know my boyfriends favorite color I might wear that a little more? if he thinks I look really good in purple I might wear purple more. just things like that.

  • I don't, I've been dressing the same.

    Though I'm sure some women might dress a little more revealing going out single vs in a relationship.

  • I will dress up more sexily when I'm single, all the better to get guys' attention, though sometimes I'll wear all the things men hate on girls. Just for kicks.

    When I'm taken I'll where what he likes on me and whatever he wants me to wear.

  • Depending on the person and their age. Normally people date sexier when they are single because they are trying to find a man and when their in a relationship some feel the need to dress down because the already have the man.. I would dress even sexier in a relationship versus being single.

  • Not particularly, I have my own unique way of dressing, and whilst it's not for everyone, I don't live to please and serve anyone, and I would only ever go out with a guy that appreciated my dress sense, so I would therefore not have to change a thing.

  • I put in more effort into my appearance, cause how I look is a reflection on him

    Who will take the man with a sloppy looking girlfriend seriously?

  • Should I? I am the same girl in all circumstances. So no, and I would not dream of it. My partner will have to accept me as I am.

  • I always find that I dress up more for my boyfriend than when I'm single. The hotter the outfit I wear when I'm with him, the quicker it gets ripped off ;)

    • you must of met my girlfriend or something because she said the same thing to me tonight...

  • Yes. When I'm not in a relationship my only concern for clothing is that it's comfortable and makes me feel good. When I'm in a relationship I'll wear clothing that my boyfriend has pointed out as liking. =)
