Girls, do you believe most men when they tell you what they like physically in women?

When we say stuff like 'I like a natural look on a woman' or 'I prefer a woman wear little makeup and not go all out with it'

juat seems like a lot of women just don't beleive when men state what they like in girls.

  • I believe it. The purpose of makeup is to "enhance" whatever natural features you want to highlight, and not exactly to cover up perceived flaws. For me personally I've been told that I'm beautiful when I'm fully done up for a date, but also when I've just woken up and been drooling and snoring all over the place. I've gotten to the point where even though I doubt myself, I have no reason to believe any guy complimenting me is lying anymore.

      Good to hear a gal actually believes us, when we say she is beautiful. Many women sadly underrate their looks! :)

      @Prof_Don not going to lie, it is hard for most because we are inundated with images from the media telling us what we should look like, and more than half of us don't fit that mold, but yea, for me it's one of those cases where I can't find any reason why a guy WOULD lie to me (outside the obvious which I rule out for the sake of answering this question).

  • They can't believe it. They won't believe it.

    They live their whole lives in a state of deception, never saying what they mean, knowing that other women are exactly the same.

    It simply isn't in their ability to grasp that men don't live like that. Men must, obviously, say one thing and mean something else. It's the way of the world. It has to be. Women can spend their entire lives looking for a Rosetta stone guide to the code men speak, because it never occurs to them that men don't speak in code. It can't. Their brains simply can't entertain the concept.

    I've seen it on GAG, where women will convince themselves that men speak in code, but they (the men) don't even know they speak in code.

    That's the level of delusion we're dealing with here.

      @idkwtftoputhere It could be. It could also be more complex. I'm not sure. When you deal with questions about how important dick size is, and 19 women reply saying it's not that important and 3 reply saying that for them it's really important but not the most important thing... and the guy goes "you see? All women demand a 9 incher!!" you have to wonder what goes on between his eye and his brain.

      True. Good talk blue anon.

  • Yeah I don't believe them most of the time lol. I've had several men (guy friends and boyfriends) tell me they like that I don't wear makeup, and they're shocked when I tell them I wear makeup almost every day!

      You look fine with no makeup, average looking. Every man has different views on what they find attractive, so some want to see makeup, others don't. Even the way you style hair or what clothes you wear can enhance looks. Makeup comes off but skin doesn't so people should accept the "real" you.

      I just mean they can't spot makeup on a person. So a girl can wear makeup and, like with me, they'll say "I like that you don't wear makeup!" when in reality I do. I just very rarely go bold with it.

      There's a cartoon I found that pretty much sums it up.

      So show us a photo with no makeup

  • I believe it, but I also believe they're leaving out some critical parts.

    I like a natural look on a woman (if she is naturally beautiful)
    I like a woman with a healthy appetite (if she is thing, otherwise I'll judge her for not eating a salad everyday)

    Exaggearting to make a point, but you get the idea

      I just think its funny that all i did was just ask you why you think he's wrong and you just can't explain it... maybe he's really right and you can't admit it...

    • 3mo

      I think he is wrong because women don't believe men are talking in code, neither do we talk in code to ourselves. Most of the time we say what we mean. As I said he is wrong about that. duh !

  • I believe THEY believe it.
    Haha But the thing is, they are never sure of what's natural... when makeup is concerned and also even plastic surgery... Guys just aren't that into details. It's like they see most things through beer goggles or murky water - if they glance at the woman and she looks shiny and has a good phisique - that's all they really care about (physically speaking).

  • No I don't. Lol. Not wholly anyway.

    Every time a guy says he likes a "natural" girl it's a really pretty girl with natural makeup (according to the pictures) and I get my most attention when sporting natural makeup. If I have my hair up in a bun and no makeup on, I still get flirted with but not half as much or people ask me if I've been sleeping or not. Lmao.

  • I usually do believe them. In the case of make up, I would say that I believe they think they know what they like - from what I've seen on here, loads of men think that a woman is wearing little to no make up but the women can see that they're actually wearing quite a lot in an attempt to create the natural look.

  • Lol, no. They say "no make up is best" but sure notice when you don't wear any XD Even my saint of a boyfriend notices when my dark circles and acne scars show. It's like this, I know he thinks I'm beautiful and appreciates my natural beauty. However, I get much more praise when I do apply make up.

      thats still generalizing though lol

      Saying men don't know what they are talking about when they talk about makeup is a general statement.

    • 3mo

      I meant in terms of scale (makeup vs. any and all topics), but sure. It's general, and I don't apologize for it, because it's pretty much true.

      Sorry, but men don't use it, don't know it, and often can't recognize it when they see it. Asking their opinion on it is like asking girls' opinions on what's the best way to approach them. Nothing wrong with them sharing their opinions, but the majority of answers you'll get probably won't reflect reality that well. And if you follow that advice, it's not going to help you much in the dating world. Same thing with girls and beauty/makeup.

  • I don't believe it because I know that men know nothing about makeup. They have no idea what "no makeup" "a little makeup" "a lot of makeup" etc look like.

    I know what guys like in terms of makeup better than they do because I see how they act based on how much I'm wearing.

  • No. What men do and say are two different things. Men still hit on women who wear a lot of makeup, wear revealing clothes, sleep around, have fake body parts more than those who dont do these things. Instragram models wouldn't have as many thirsty male followers if mens actions reflected their words.

      The code part was a bit too much since I don't believe men or women speak in a certain code, only that they don't seem believe one another sometimes.

      I agree with him though. If your man says he loves you without makeup and he's always telling you that, girls for god sake believe him...

  • Its because y'all dont seem to know what 'no make up' really looks like because you mess it up with 'decent foundation, a bit of contour, not too much mascara and maybe some other stuff in nude colours'

  • My perspective with women using makeup is this: I consider makeup an art form for the face. So I don't mind makeup at all, and I have a fetish for women who wear colorful makeup on the lips and around the eyes. So fucking pretty! ;-)

    My only hangup with makeup is that, I feel some women overuse foundation and powder compacts. No need to "cake" up your face that much! :-D

    • 3mo

      All I have to say about that is... I don't have to understand something to enjoy it. :-P

  • Makeup covers flaws. We all have flaws, but don't need to fix who we are. It may look nicer but makeup is covering up who a girl really is. Are you interested in dating her makeup, or her. If you truly like her you will like her natural look.

    Girls seem to think you need expensive bags, jewelry, and makeup to look beautiful when that's never been true. It's how companies brainwash women to pay extra for these items thinking they need them when they actually don't. They use a women's insecurities and tell her you "need" to buy this makeup to be noticed and look sexy, it's all lies... Men don't use makeup and we do fine.

  • If they aren't delusional, they can see if guys respond positively to them more with or without makeup, or with light vs. heavy.

    That matters more than what guys say.

    Guys are unreliable on this point, just as many women are unreliable in describing what they like in a man.
