I'm assuming that as someone who cares so meticulously about a woman's appearance, you're holding up your own end of the bargain.

I try to all the time and it's not about being meticulous. I try to be clean and trimmed all the time and I still take a brush to my shoes and not wear them scuffed. It's what I like and appreciate when I see women do it.

Sorry that you feel demeaned or offended by what I've said.

I never knew that giving praise to women who pay attention to looking good and colour coordinating to my liking would be offensive. Sorry that you feel about it and the way you see it.

Then again, I've learned that some people on CD just can't be complimented. They take praise finding negativity where something wasn't intended to be hurtful.

Perhaps you shouldn't respond next time if it offends you so much.

Mmm, yes, any time I disagree with someone I should just shut up and go away. Or perhaps you should just examine your sexist attitude before posting in a female-dominated forum.

Ha, no problem. I've known a lot of people who had read it but never heard it say "fox paw". I blame the French.

How old are you, what do you do for a living, and do you have kids? If you have a preference for high maintenance, that's fine, but it's not practical for everyone. No matter how attractive a woman (or man) is, I don't expect her/him to be perfectly dressed and made up with 2 or 3 kids in tow. I don't expect a man (or woman) who has worked 10 hours of manual labor, to give 2 sh*ts about it either.

I have days that I've clearly coordinated my outfit. I look good and feel good. I don't give a rat's *ss about what some random guy or girl thinks. I have days that I've just thrown something on and I still don't care what anyone thinks.

While you genuinely may have been trying to complement women, it came off disparagingly.
