Is there a difference between the type of women who wear pants VS women who wear skirts/dresses?

I was going to post this in a different place such as Psychology or Relationships, but then I thought it would probably be more appropriate here.

Anyway, I would appreciate any thoughts or opinions on this. Thanks.

Most women I know have at least a dress or two, even if they wear pants most of the time.

I don't think there's any difference between a woman in pants and a woman in a dress, except that in pants I am more prepared to bend down and pick up my kid, change a tire, ride a bike, etc. I'm also more likely to have a pocket so I don't have to stick my phone and keys in my bra or be forced to carry a purse.

I'm a woman that only wears pants, however I would prefer to wear skirts/dresses but they look silly on me.

Yeah there is a huge difference, women who wea only skirts are more "delicate" and religious.

I like dresses and skirts but I'm more of a mini skirt or short summer strapless dress kind of person so not like conversation dresses.

Not sure what this says about me, but I prefer pants, mostly from a practical standpoint. I can sit and move around without fear of indecent exposure. And they're more comfortable in inclement weather.

As a matter of practicality, I prefer pants when it's cold and/or rainy outside, if I'm feeling a little down or if it's that time of the month. Otherwise I prefer dresses. I have quite a few dresses/skirts I wear to work during the spring and summer. If I'm in a good mood, and it's a gorgeous day outside, then I'll put on a dress or a skirt. I feel constricted when I wear pants. I think that's probably why I wear them a few sizes too big. I like the movement dresses provide versus wearing pants. Plus they're so pretty!

Pants for me. I always hated to have to watch how I sat in public. And for work?.....there's nothing quite like having to hunt for something in bottom two drawers of a file cabinet while trying to keep the panties from flashing.

Um, what? LOL. I am so far from delicate and even farther from religious, yet I only own 3 pairs of pants and the rest of my wardrobe is skirts and dresses. I do not like strapless anything though and I haven't worn a mini skirt since high school. What is a "conversation" dress?

I tend to prefer below-the-knee skirts and dresses so I don't worry about flashing anyone. I only have issues when it is super windy outside and I am in a full skirt.

Me too. I am so much more comfy in a skirt or dress. I wear pants but generally when I'm feeling a little "meh" and it is easier to throw on casual cotton pants and a t-shirt and put my hair in a ponytail, because when I wear skirts and/or dresses I feel the need to look more polished overall.

I also have a rather old-fashioned or nostalgic aesthetic in general and dresses and skirts work well with that. It's just more "me", but i've always felt like I was born in the wrong time. Sure, I am absolutely glad that I don't live in a period where women faced legally sanctioned abuse and discrimination, but I do still prefer things that are more traditionally considered "ladylike". I'm by no means a "delicate flower" though -- I've been called "slightly intimidating", honestly, either in a dress or jeans.

That's supposed to be conservative....apparently auto correct thought otherwise.

Pants! Skirts and dresses are too impractical for most kinds of work/physical activities. They're strictly for when I'm going places where I know I'll only be involved in sedate things, which is very, very seldom.
Not to mention pants are more comfortable when it's cold, windy, or wet.
