"Are there any guys who prefer girls who DON'T dress..."


Pasted from the home page.


Yes....that is what I prefer. A strong preference really.

It's not a 'deal breaker' just a slight preference...of course once in awhile it'd be nice to see her dress up, but not like every day or something.
You should be happy most of the time, then.
Most women I see in public look like they just rolled out of bed! LOL

Im glad I dont live where you live.

Here, even women just walking around the mall or going into Starbucks seem to appear to have really "dolled" themselves up. The only ones I notice who look like they just rolled out of bed are the ones that are so smoking HOT that its like they purposefully try to "dumb down" their look. 8 out of 10 times they end up being famous actresses or models though so they still look hot.

As I have mentioned before, I love a woman who can dress appropriately for the situation/event and still show their sense of style. Like the women who jog through my neighborhood, they tend to wear Lulumon Athletica or Bebe Sport type exercise pants and shirts with baseball caps and ponytails bouncing around. NICE.

At the local malls (Calabasas Commons, Westfield Topanga, Fashion Square Galleria) its would be odd to see someone (between the ages of 16-50) who did NOT put effort into looking nice. Its just the way it is here.

NYC is another place where people don't do that sloppy sort of casual thing. Even people who don't have much money make do with what they have and step out of the house looking their best. In the summer in particular, it is easy to spot a tourist because they are wearing ugly pleated khaki pants and a worn-out t-shirt that was obviously a freebie from their local saloon. It's always a bit of culture shock to me when I visit middle America and see people out eating dinner wearing sloppy old jeans, crocs, and uncombed hair. If you can't be bothered to look presentable out to dinner, get some food from the local McDonalds drive-through and go home.

The most ideal situation is a female who knows how to dress up when necessary, how to dress down, and everything in between. A signature look that never changes is a terrible thing especially if it involves makeup done the same way everyday. A variety to select from in both apparel and hairstyles is what should be aimed for.

Um, dont just point your finger at middle America, you see that everywhere, not just the Midwest.

I don't see it here in NYC, sorry but I am here every day and you are not. I live in working-class Brooklyn and work in an uber-trendy neighborhood in Manhattan where celebrities & wealthy folk routinely die of drug overdoes
when the party gets too serious. I am involved in both worlds here, and neither side is sloppy.

If I go out to have a decent dinner tonight - meaning I am not walking around with an orange tray and pointing, and my order isn't given to a person wearing a headset - I will not see people wearing worn out Miller Light t-shirts. That's middle America for you. (Except for places like Chicago, which has some of these types sprinkled in but they don't dominate the landscape.) MO? Sorry, I go there 1-2 times a year and it ain't pretty!

You're not in Mo every day, sorry, but I dont see it. Guess we should be glad you're not in our fair state more often.
I am in NYC more than you think, and I've seen it from the natives.
I've also seen it in Florida, all over the South, the West, etc, etc, etc.....
The only reason you dont see it is you seem to be a bit busy bashing the Midwest.
Stop with the attitude already.
You're making yourself look like a stereotypical New Yorker.

I don't know why you are so upset by it but... it is what it is. Sorry, it doesn't mean you are wrong to live where you live. Keep your pride and self-esteem high!

I'm not upset by it, I pointed out you were incorrect, simple as that.
