I recently notice girls becoming extremely concerned in their self image, I gotta tell you girls, most guys including myself like a girl dirty and weathered just as much as one who has spent an hour infront of a mirror. I truly do find extremly buitifull women a turn-off, they remind me of barbies, they look fake. So, my advice, save your self an hour and go to your next part dressed casual!

Hey Dan, welcome to Scarleteen!

Check out this post, and the wonderful reply by Beppie, that addresses women's self-image and those who want to support women (or hey, men too!) with self and body image issues:;f=1;t=004890

Remember, too, that while a number of people (men and women) spend a large amount of time getting themselves ready to go out - be it dressing up or make-up or doing their hair or what have you - and do so because of a self-image related problem, there are many people who choose to do so because they ENJOY doing so; they do so for their own, not for anyone else's, enjoyment.

So, while you may prefer women to be more casual when they go out, there may be some women who enjoy really dressing up and making themselves up for a party, and they'll do it for themselves, not because they're worried about what other people may think they look like without make-up. I know I, personally, enjoy putting on a little more make-up and dressing up more when I go out to dinner or with friends because it's something I don't get to do very often or in my day-to-day life, so it makes me feel like the occasion's a bit more special because I get to prepare differently for it and take a bit more time.
