I don't think that's completely true.

Most of the guys I've met, yes are pigs. But there are some decent men out there to.

I dont care how nice a guyis. Appearence is always on a guys mind.. A guy will always say yes or no to go out with someone based on appearence when it comes to a first date of some sort. That doesnt neccessarily make him a 'pig' though as it doesnt mean hes shunning anyone who doesnt look like a model. If said women is clean, done her hair nice, wearing nice clothes. You get the idea. As everyone has something special about them but you have to exaggerate that by being clean and looking after your image.
"but i dont care what guys care about so i dont care about my image" To say something like this just means you dont care about yourself.

.... And to people who say "All that matters is personality" on forums, particularly in threads like this. Are you trying to look the saint? or are you just stating the obvious? When your gunna start a relationship with someone ofcourse personality is the key point wether the guy or girl is an asshole or not. So why are you mentioning these things in a thread discussing peoples thoughts on appearence. Yeah your a real nice person you!

Because we're insecure. Its a girl thing, but it can also be a guy thing. We care about our appearances so much, it's almost sickening to what we would do to ourselves. Every body has flaws... I've learned to love myself, even with my flaws. And that was probably one of the hardest things I've ever done. But I pulled through. And I'm only a sophomore in High school. That, is probably rare. Where I come from, ALL of my friends are insecure/self conscious. So in my eyes, it's rare.

Haha you're an awesome and really sweet dude. But really not ALL girls have body image issues. And trust me they grow out of it after puberty and become hot bitches.

MOST women can be truly beautiful, some even without any help from chemicals and products. I've seen heavy ladies who I thought were gorgeous and thin ladies that were hideous and vice versa, so I don't necessarily agree on it being all the medias fault (though I'm sure that's where the majority comes from). All in all , isn't beauty still in the eye of the beholder? If you don't like your appearance, change it. If someone else doesn't like it, screw them! It's pretty tragic that women (and some men) spend eternity trying to please the masses with looks when they're perfectly beautiful.

I think the reason is because women are always comparing themselves to other women. and with that in mind they always picture how perfect their body and looks would be if it looked like something else. I know this cute girl in highschool who use to starve herself. and now out of high school she's kind of like "whatever" and she gain about 100 lbs. I think it's based off of peer pressure. back in highschool she was comparing with other female but now after highschool she just hangs around the house so she has no one to compare herself with.

Straight up...

I care a lot about how I look and about how people around me look. I keep my self fit and healthy.

I'm not going to lie and say sugarcoated things such as...

"Oh, you shouldn't put so much make up on, you're beautiful with out it"
or "Oh, don't lose weight, you already look nice how you are."
Because I'd be lying.

I know it's coming off wrong, but this is just the 'light stuff'. And I don't want to get deep,tbh it's just, I'm a lust(sex)crazed male close to my 20's and I could honestly care less about your "inner" beauty then how "hot" you are on the outside.



Maybe it's due to my age...Maybe I'll grow out of it and find my self a nice girl to be with. Someday, not today though, nor tomorrow...I'm just going to enjoy my life as a young stud and get the addiction out of my system. Otherwise I'd end up having a mid life crisis later.

the dude says he dated a model, and he's talking about all women being beautiful. you don't think that's extremely hypocritical of you? go date the proverbial "beached whale" that is beautiful "on the inside" then come back and teach us a thing or two, kthxbye.

not really... I'm sure you've seen 1 girl who thinks they're the hottest thing ever(or they think they're perfect).. but unfortunately they're not.

My experience has been the more beautiful the woman, the more the OP's statement is true.

A man or woman's appearance is like an advertisement to others, really. It just gets your foot in the door when it comes to establishing relationships with others. If you're an awful person, people will still end up avoiding you.

Sometimes, a woman can be so beautiful that it makes her feel less beautiful.

When a stunningly beautiful woman goes out, sometimes she can be so intimidating and humbling in terms of sheer looks that no guy dares to approach her or talk to her. It just seems likely in most guys' minds that there is no way she's not already taken with some incredibly rich, handsome guy.

Naturally, that woman sees herself as undesirable, or that something must be wrong with her. There must be some physical flaw that is so glaring that no guy gives her the time of day.

This leads to a lot more effort being put into her looks, insecurity, body image issues, etc.

You're right, a girl has to take care of herself, but that is cleanliness, of course I would like someone who cleans themselves up.

Well I don't think that's true, guys mainly think about appearance. But to be honest, it's not only guys. Girls can think the same way too.


haha... yeah right.XD

Not every guy is worried about getting his willy wet. I do enjoy conversation. I would much rather chill with someone who will talk to me rather then talking to a brick wall because I'm feeling a bit randy.

alll i can say is guys want to impress girls by looking "strong and sexy" and girls want to impress guys by "looking thin, hot and sexy". when in reality its all on what you like, some people like bigger girls (no offense to anyone) and some like skinny girls(vice versa). i judge on personality, but looks always come into play too. thats all i can say
