Do guys prefer girls who wear makeup and sexy clothes?


Share post:

QI always read that guys prefer girls who don’t wear make-up and that they don’t like girls to dress slutty. But from my own personal experience, guys only seem to notice me when I’m wearing make-up and tight short clothes. And the women they chase after are the ones that wear a lot of make-up and dress slutty. So what’s the real truth? Do guys just say they don’t prefer girls who wear makeup and sexy clothes when in fact they do?

A – The truth is, most guys, whether they would admit it or not, are more likely to gawk at the make-up wearing girl in the tight dress. But the thing that a lot of us ladies don’t seem to get is that just because guys think we’re sexy and would like to spend the night with us (even 60 nights if they remain interested that long), doesn’t mean they really really like us.

What we mean by that: lusting after your body doesn’t equal liking you as a person and valuing you for your intrinsic qualities. Guys can be “interested in you” without really being interested in you.

So yes, as it relates to her personality and his ability to have a meaningful relationship with her, a guy can prefer the “realness” of a girl who doesn’t wear makeup and doesn’t dress provocatively. That same guy, when out in public, might only notice the girls who do wear makeup and who dress provocatively. It seems contradictory only because we think if a guy notices a girl it means he likes her as opposed to it being just a case of him taking in and appreciating the view.

This is not a question of whether or not guys are telling the truth when they say they prefer girls who don’t wear makeup or dress sexily. It’s a matter of putting things in proper context.

Guys usually notice girls for their physical appearance. And whether we like it and can deal with it or not, the prettier you look, the more likely you are to get noticed. And as long as you don’t go so overboard as to look like you’re ready to troll the streets, the sexier you dress, the more likely you are to get noticed. So a pretty girl in a sexy outfit will usually get noticed over a barefaced girl in an unsexy outfit. Unless of course the barefaced girl is still drop dead gorgeous and her figure so outstanding that even a potato sack looks sexy on her. Assuming the barefaced girl isn’t drop dead gorgeous with a figure to die for, it’s still possible that when it comes to being in a relationship that’s about more than physical pleasure, some guys do prefer a girl who isn’t shallow and vain.

    Hello, I'm Adela Lewis aka singer songwriter Adelamonica. I am the founder, creative director, editor in chief and main writer for First let me say, I myself cringe at some of the things I've written on this blog. It is completely embarrassing to realize how miserably I've been failing to hide the fact that I lack sophistication, and often times lack enlightenment. I wish I had never written half the things I've written on here, but I did write them. To be clear, I am just a regular person who enjoys writing. I refer to myself as "editor in chief" and "creative director" because, owning the blog as I do and being the one who creates and edits the content (except for content submitted by guest contributors), I feel that I have the freedom to do so. But I am not an editor and there is currently no staff that I oversee. Via this blog, I am contributing my personal thoughts and ideas and beliefs to everyday topics of discussion--at times topics on which I am not particularly well informed, but about which I might still have a point of view--much like most other people on the planet . The things I write should be regarded in the light of diary/journal style and essay style writings, reviews and reports exploring the topics I attempt to discuss. Please recognize that I have no academic or other professional qualifications and I do not represent my points of view as carrying any weight or having anything of significant value to contribute to serious discussions held by qualified persons on any topic featured. I apologize in advance for any errors major or minor that I make in my writing (I have made some embarrassing errors), anything I write that can be perceived as an offense or that is otherwise insensitive or needlessly critical and disparaging of any person.
