Do guys like girls who are non-girly girls?

I often see guys give girls who are 'really girly' a lot of attention.

- It's not I dress like a male, but I just don't like dresses, wearing pink, ... I don't dress to impress. As long as I feel comfortable.
- I can't relate to my female friends who like make up, going shopping, being afraid to take initiative, etc. I can be very straightforward (without being rude). I don't flirt and don't like it when people compliment my looks. I hate taking pictures of myself and going out.
- I like gaming, watching sports from time to time and eating a lot (I'm not fat).

People have told me I should start wearing make up, going out, start wearing more 'naked' things, ... And when I wear a bit of make up, people tell me: โ€œYou should look like this more often!โ€

One of my friends told me I don't really stand a chance with girls who wear make up, dresses, flirt, etc.

  • If you're this confident then there is nothing not to like about that fact..
    Girls like you who are straightforward and don't wear a mask...
    I'm sure you'd do good in life.. and it's not always about how you look on the outside.. sure it's the first impression but then how you talk and handle things is important..
    You're really confident and that'd be attractive to a lot men.. this is all about preference but you can feel free to tell your friend that you definitely stand a chance against girls who hide behind masks.. tell her a friend told you that ๐Ÿ˜

  • Well at first that "friend" who told you that you don't stand a chance with bla bla bla isn't a real friend. A real friend lifts you up, is there for you, helps you to achieve your dreams no matter how far away they seem to be. Don't throw with the word "friend" around you like if you're feeding ducks with bread. A friend is something special and very rare. So far so good.
    You description of yourself looks mostly like the description of my dreamgirl and I think most guys here are with me. You aren't just fine, you are more than fine and all those "friends" telling you how you should change yourself (don't do this!) are just jealous I guess. A real beauty doesn't need make up to be beautiful. And many guys don't like that (said by a guy remember). Shopping itself is mostly boring and shyness is kind of cute. Many girls don't like to get compliments and I hate it when they don't want to accept them. It's like if they would call me a liar and I don't lie. Nah girl you are perfectly fine. Don't worry. Stay on your way and always be yourself. Wish you a good day โœŒ๐Ÿผ

  • Don't worry about what they think, there are plenty of guys who will like you no matter what your style is. Gag is hardly a good representation of all men, and even if it was don't take anything said to heart, you are neither superior or insuperior to others simply because a bunch of guys online say so.

  • no guy wants to marry a clown or a thot. I would advise ignoring them in the sense of them saying you have no chance (they just shallow little children) and I may be alone in thinking this but if you are not comfortable then you are not actually being your true self. If you are uncomfortable you are generally a bit preoccupied with how uncomfortable you are to really be who you really are.

  • I heard someone say that you prefer someone who balances you out. So super masculine men want super feminine women. And then Iโ€™m down the totem pole of balance I guess. I think it makes sense. So not all men are super manly men thus not all men want super girly girls!

  • 'Really girly' girls get attention because they are putting themselves out there so to speak. They are starting to impress. Seems like you are struggling with whether you should do the same. A simple answer is to try it. If you don't like it don't do it again. However, be yourself above all else.

  • Iโ€™m just like you, how you described yourself. I still get guys. A lot of them are either really desperate, much older or really like games like I do. So I think if you can find a guy that likes the same things as you do and doesnโ€™t care so much about your looks, youโ€™ll be fine.

  • Yes I like girly girls, but more importantly it sounds like you are more comfortable with who you are then they are. I personally don't think women need makeup to look beautiful. I hope you can stay that way and not be self conscious. It's good to dress up for special occasions but when it's not just be yourself

  • I don't know about others but I have already started liking you.
    Girls with makeup look good but that's a mask we wear to look good in public. A girl's natural beauty is far more better than the artificial one.
    What you wear is your decision so no need to say anything.
    And I loved it when you said you don't like shopping ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I have never heard this from any girl ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  • If you're confident enough to be as ungirly as you like, that's honestly very attractive. I love girls who can be less feminine, I myself value being able to be effeminate just as much, as I'm not exactly manly. So long as you're confident and complete as a person with or without the approval of others, then you're going to be as attractive as anyone.

  • I love girls with short hair, and who are straightforward, who don't wear too much make-up and who can do male activities. For example I had to change wheel because it had been punctured, and my friend hold the screws, all dirty, and was even excited "oh it seems like formula 1!" she was adorable :)
    Still, I like fรฉminine clothing and behaviors, otherwise I would be looking for men ๐Ÿ˜

  • Personally I like women who are feminine but not 'girly'; who get along fine with guys n gals, and into alternative interests. What you describe are schoolyard Barbie types. Nothing wrong with em but I don't tend to get along with em as friends nevermind romantic interests. But then I don't get along with macho guys either so that's just me.

  • I would rather be interested in someone like you. However not accepting compliments aboug your look may be a red flag for many guys.

    What do you want thel to tell to you? "Hey nice boobs and ass"?

    How do you want to stand a single chance even against a tree or a table if you just reject the guys who may be interested?

    Just be yourself and let the others come to you.

  • It depends on the guy, girls who don't wear dresses and etc. Aren't bad persay, but it's a taste thing. Girls in nice dresses can look amazing, but that girl who you can just chill with and it doesn't take her forever to get ready, she is the best. Not to mention gamer girls are a godsent

  • Meant to choose yes, it is because you are easier to talk to and get to know, the problem is that you put the guys who try to get to know you in the friend zone. This is purely because of the way they approach you. Not your fault.

    • Show All
    • Sorry, I worded that wrong. I ment to say. If dresses and make-up is not her thing. Than wearing them will attract the wrong guy for her.

    • Okay well that makes more sense

  • Best part is, you don't belive in show off. And have your opinion on everything , like not going with the flow , that's great. Keep it up.

  • Maybe you are moving in the false circles. You could look if their are some bars or events in your area which are roughly assoziated with your hobbys (LARPing and Anime/Cosplay Conventions could be a good starting point if you like video games). I mean I was a few weeks ago at a students bar which popular under LARPers. Most of the girls were not very girly, had a boyfriend with them and were completly accepted by everyone else.

    What I want to say is that similiar people tend to clump together and sometimes you have to search for the groups where people similiar to you are.

  • A good amount of guys like a girl with your style. The advice the girls are giving you doesn't have to apply to you, it isn't your style anyway. Something that could happen is you going out, because of your friends and getting passed, because you aren't flirting, wearing dresses, acting/being feminine. Yet at school, at a bar, a convention, etc you will find guys who you will be compatible with and feel the same way.
    Also you're gonna have to flirt a little bit. It is necessary. Find your way to do it while being yourself.

  • I said no, but it's really somewhere in between. Someone who chooses to dress a bit girlish of the situation demands it and be simple otherwise would the best combination. Guys have enough eyesight to tell who the girls are in their species without them needing to bash the fact over our heads with a ton of foundation. I'm a sucker for the small touches that bring out their best features. Maybe a hint of some eyeliner, subtle earrings etc. At the same time, she should also be independent and honest, that's honestly way more attractive than make up. So, yeah, a little bit of both.

  • I'm married to a non girly girl type of woman. She caught my eye and kept my attention because of her personality or traits at the time. It's all about the connection you can create at the end of the day but right off the top of it guys like a girl that is feminine sexy s***** and hot a girly girl. After we get to know you we really don't care from my understanding at least. I love my wife for everything she is tomboy and girly girl. But most guys I feel have a different opinion. Even myself I would want a more girly girl
