Cuddlebunny showed me a photo with her with makeup (she's a natural beauty and already 8/10 in my scale)... and... SUPER HOT!
easily at least 15
/10!! I've never seen such a stunner in YEARS, and I see stunners all the time! Yet all this time and she never dressed up like that for me. I haven't been able to take my eyes off the photo all day, and she wasn't happy with me when I proposed she should dress up like that.
*sigh* Wimmen -.-
Sigh... oh, RD.
We ALL look better with makeup on. That's why it's consistently such a booming industry!
Just one female perspective here:
I stopped wearing makeup this past spring, and was surprised at how liberating it has been for me. It sparked some great conversations, with both men and women in my life about societal expectations and self-image. I have one friend who said she will never stop wearing makeup, because when she spends that time looking in the mirror each day, she sees the features she shares with her sister and their deceased mom. She treasures that time feeling close to them. I told her that is a beautiful reason to wear makeup, and love that she does it for herself. Every other friend has either stopped wearing it herself, or can't - because she feels she can't be seen without it.
I realized that I have never worn it for me. From the age of 13, I wore makeup because I thought I was supposed to. Heaven forbid I should let anyone see me without my "face" on. Not wearing makeup has taught me that I am beautiful because I am a good person - not because I have mascara on. And I have learned that many men prefer women without makeup. They want to see their true beauty. I have even given presentations and gone on first dates without makeup on. And gotten second dates - lol!
Now, I have started wearing a little bit again - sometimes. But it's because I want to, not because anyone expects me to. It's boosted my self-confidence in ways that wearing it never did. Anyway - just a different point of view for you to consider, RD.
My final and most important point for you: You know those "tests" you run women through when you are dating? Don't be surprised if this is a test that Cuddlebunny has. And you are not scoring well by reacting like that.
