  • No. Contrary to popular belief, we don't do everything to get attention from guys. I don't wear much makeup and I rarely wear heels but when I do its because I want to. If it catches the attention of a guy then great, but if not then I'm still gonna be good.

  • Nope, because I know it's true. It might not be *only* for yourself, but it feels good to look good, it's fun to dress up, and a lot of women are genuinely interested in make up and fashion. My friend will experiment with different make up looks for fun and never even leave the house.

    How many guys care about the difference between the look and feel of a pair of Louboutins vs. look-alike Steve Maddens? Or L'Oréal vs. Mac products? Girls don't make those choices with guys in mind.

  • I say there are women out there who do genuinely like dressing up just so they can look in the mirror and like what they. For whatever reason, it makes them feel good about themselves.

    But there are also women who dress up because it's what's expected of them, or they've been taught that it's how you get the attention of the opposite sex.

  • Mmmmm no it isn't bullshit.

    Make up? Makes us feel good about our faces.

    Heels? Makes us feel more confident, sexy etc.

    Depends on the woman, because MOST women wear it for themselves but there are the exceptions who don't but if they don't then they don't say they do.

  • Not having worn make-up, heels, accessories, and silky things, I can see why you might not understand. But getting all dolled up... it's fabulous. We love doing it on occasion. For us. For the fun of it. Sure, we dress up for you sometimes too. But often it is just because we enjoy doing it.

  • No, some women do enjoy wearing heels and makeup. I know I do occasionally. I don't think there is anything wrong with wanting to look nice. There is also nothing wrong with not wanting to wear makeup. Everyone has different priorities.

  • I don't even dress up when I go out bc I hate being stared at. I've dressed up at home a zillion times while maybe ten times in public for events..

    So yeah I believe them plus you're forgetting, not all women like men or women. some women are asexual.

    • I find it hilarious that Thisi such a huge point if contention for some guys. It upsets them so much lol they try do hard to prove its n it true.

    • Do you equally think that when guys dress up it is to attract men?

  • Well of course they wear it for themselves, because it makes them feek good! But why does it make them feel good, you ask? Because they feel sexy, and why do they feel sexy? Because the boys like it.💋

  • It's just fun to draw on your face, it's also fun to walk around and pretend you're Gigi Hadid or Kendall Jenner up in here when you see your reflection.

    Sometimes it's also nice to receive compliments from other women like "oh wow, where'd you get that dress" or "I love your eyeshadow, did you do it yourself?". It makes for easy conversation with them since there's a common interest.

    Very rarely, it is to impress a guy. Very rarely.

    Sometimes, it's a combination of the above.

  • You'd be shocked to find that not all women validate their existence by what guys think of them. And honestly it's selfish to think women dress up to please men.

  • I like to do it because I do like the attention and I like when men (and women) stare at and compliment me so yes I do like to look good for the boys 😉. But I also love applying makeup on myself and seeing how pweety I look cause it definitely makes me feel 10x sexier.

  • I think no man has a say in this. You're not a woman. If you were a crossdresser you got a say.

    Yes, we do wear make up and heels to look good for ourselves. Maybe it's to hide insecurities. It's because make up and heels make us feel better about ourselves.

  • No. It's not bullshit. It's absolutely plausible. I wear heels because it makes my legs and hips and ass look fabulous and I will unashamedly stare at myself in every reflecting surface I walk by.

  • Granted I've always done my own thing always never been a follower. I personally dress for myself, i dont follow fashion trends and i do what i want. Some people may think like me but in general the sexes do things to impress eachother. Personally i feel if you dont like how i dreaa or carry myself oh well but I've never had a complaint.

  • It's true though. But that doesn't mean it's exclusively for themselves. It's just an important reason. If you don't want it for yourself, it's not worth doing.

  • Of course they do it for themselves.
    I've never forced any of my girlfriends to dress in a certain way. That is why my girlfriend walks around without any make-up (she can get out of bed and be ready in 15 minutes) and with sneakers, jeans and a hoody. I'm totally fine with that. We have an agreement that she lets me wear my ripped underwear and socks (which I'm way too lazy to replace) and I don't interfere with her style of dressing. It's a great compromise we've established. I can only recommend it to other people. Everyone gets to be happy by wearing his/her stuff and nobody has to listen to an annoying boyfriend/girlfriend complaining about their looks.

  • Some of the women that I have talked to say they do it because they want to look good, and other girls do, and they want to look better!!!
    Most won't usually admit it, but I think most women dress and use make-up to compete with other women!!
    I've talked to a few, and the reluctantly admit they are more concerned about how other women see them, than getting guy's attention!
    I know some are going to say I am full of sht, but I have 'confessions' from several, and it's ok. I don't mind, either way!
    I don't expect women to dress for me, or to get my attention, or I would think that they would wear something VERY different!! :)
    Whatever the reason, generally, we ADORE you ladies, in whatever you wear!! :)

  • I think girls like playing with makeup, and I think girls think shoes are fun. I'm sure there are girls that do that just for boys, but I think they think it's more fun than for other reasons.

    If you dont care about appearance, you won't do makeup and heels and shit like that

  • Yes it's bullshit.

    Much like their claim off showing off their cleavage because "they like to feel good about themselves" ... well, that theory goes out the window when a good looking guy approaches then and then fucks the living shit out of her a few minutes later in her bedroom

  • Girls wear heels when they want to get laid, not because it's sexy (it's not) but because it makes them look slutty so guys know they're an easy target. (and because of this girls often think they are sexy)

  • Well I'd say it's complicated but what they are trying to say is they aren't doing it directly to attract men. They are doing it for lots of reasons and that's not the main one.
