As a man, and one who really appreciates the beauty of nature and the natural beauty of a woman, I can never understand why a woman, any woman spends so much time and effort in things like changing the color or style of their hair, and applying all sorts of makeup to hide the naturalness that God provided for them. From their eyes to their toes, women apply so many different things like eye liner, eye lash makeup eyebrow pencil, lip gloss and lipstick, cheek coloring, then we get into things like nail polish for fingers and toes and lastly cosmetic surgery for face,ears, lips, body you name it.
For me there is nothing more beautiful than a woman with long natural flowing, natural colored hair, no makeup and especialy no cosmetic surgery enhancments to shrink or make bigger the God given features they have.
So Why do women do all this to themselves? Is it for themselves? Do they have that low esteem that they figure they need it? Do they figure it necessary to either attract or keep a man? Do they really believe in their heart of hearts that all this makes them look younger?
Vanity is a woman's curse. And yes, before you get on my back, Men are just as guilty and are doing some of the same things.
I don't wear makeup much at all except when i go out somewhere special. I don't wear any to work, nor do I wear any nail polish. I do dye my hair but it is to cover the gray. I don't believe in growing old gracefully, as I don't feel my age. I will dye my hair as long as I have it to dye.
One thing I don't believe in doing is Botox. I will never do that to my body.
You probably don't realize that the women you find naturally beautiful, actually spend time on their looks. Don't you want a woman who takes care of herself? To look good for you? Not spending an excessive amount of hours of course to accomplish it. I know my boyfriend appreciates that I spend time to put myself together to look better for him. He likes that I try for him- even though I don't have to.
Nothing wrong with coloring your hair once in awhile- I don't do it. But sometimes people feel like they need to freshen up their looks, ya know?
Changing our looks and bettering ourselves helps us to be more confident, and to act confidently- you should take a look at studies done on women who do their makeup and put themselves together. Like uh, girls who do this, often more motivated to exercise for longer amounts of time, and push harder. Confidence does a lot for a person.
I hope this was a serious questions because you are genuinely curious and not some kind of point you're trying to make.
I don't expect you to understand the emphasis that is heavily placed on beauty today. Girls feel like they have to live up to these standards.
You're a man. You're not expected to understand. Women don't expect you to understand.
However, if you do, then you're a more powerful man and probably very attractive to woman.
I understand why women like to change their appearance and do the things they want to do with their body. It's their life and it's their right to do what they want with their life. It's for them to experience, regardless of what you think.
I don't wear makeup very often. When I do it is for myself, nobody else. I like short hair and I like to keep my hair the same colour it was when I was a child because I feel I look better that way.
Maybe women don't style themselves based solely on appealing to a certain kind of man? Maybe that is just how they want to look?
I agree it is a womans personl choice.
Personally I perfer the natural beauty of a woman.
Depends on the woman, and I appreciate your opinion. I'm 54, so I was done paying for "beauty" decades ago. Don't wear makeup, and my hair is past my waist. Used to buy all kinds of shoes, but now it's all about flats and comfort. But that's anything I wear. A lot of beautiful women out there who don't give themselves a lot of credit for their brains and their looks. Sometimes, makeup, hair,and wardrobe provide an ego boost. Who really knows what some women are trying to achieve by changing their looks? You'll have to ask the woman.
I am going to respond to this forum based on my own opinions and feelings.
Regarding changing our hair color and styles so often; I like the feeling of being in control of myself. If there are things in life I cannot control, I know I can control the color of my hair or how much eye liner I choose to wear.
No matter how many times a woman is told she is beautiful, there will always be someone we KNOW is more beautiful. That is an awful feeling.
if we cannot reach Barbie doll status or Angelina Jolie, we are going to try our hardest to be as beautiful as we can be.
Society says that make-up, fancy clothes, smooth long hair and perfect figure is the only thing beautful can be.
Its not our fault were like this. Maybe if men stoppped watching explicit videos that have perfect beautful women willing to do anything, we wouldn't feel the need to become that false and fake.
Dave, you said "For me there is nothing more beautiful than a woman with long natural flowing, natural colored hair, no makeup and especialy no cosmetic surgery enhancments to shrink or make bigger the God given features they have."
You are assuming that all women are natural beauties - that would be nice, but in reality, not that many have long natural flowing hair and some of their (our) features are not particular attractive. I think a woman has a right to do what she can to bring out the best in her, even if that means covering up what she sees to be a flaw. I think women mainly do it for themselves. Don't try too hard to figure women out, or it will drive you crazy : )
