Wish I could brush teeth, floss, shower, shave, dress in 10 minutes. It usually takes me about 30-40 minutes between waking up and walking out the door, although that includes coffee, quick breakfast, feeding the dog, etc.

In 48 years, that's been my experience.

Maybe they just think you're attractive.

Maybe you're clothes are too tight? I think mean in sweaters who are well kept are sexy as ever! Maybe you live on the wrong part of the world...

Men just get dressed for work but women really are dressing for other women. Trust me you think a guy really cares or knows what purse you carry or shoes you are wearing NO. We look at you and say wow she's attractive or not and it's that fast. Trust me it doesn't really matter what you are wearing to a man it matters if you are attractive or not. But a woman will look at you and judge every piece of your outfit so that's why you guys spend so much time getting ready and picking just the righ thing you are dressing for the ladies.

Because simply, often times the clothes make the woman. Cute clothes make women look better.

Why is that?
That is just bad basic hygiene. You don't have two minutes to brush your teeth? I'm sure the people you encounter are fairly disgusted.

This. Intra-sexual competition for women to outdo other women.

Bull's eye, man. The homosexual allegation comes mostly from other guys who are absolutely retarded in the fashion department.
