But that's the part I don't get. Why are you assuming that unattractive people aren't living healthfully? And taking care of their appearance?

I agree with this.

And it can go the other way. Don't groom, and gain a bunch of weight, and you suddenly are less attractive.

The only time someone is unattractive in my eyes is if they are obese or look dirty. Basically if they don't look healthy or look like they don't clean themselves. I do agree that I am being presumptions by assuming everyone who does fits that descriptions isn't living healthy lifestyle, I don't know that person who knows what they do with their life. But this thread isn't about shaming or judging others, its about encouraging others to nourish their body and natural beauty to the fullest on the in and out. We have obesity epidemic, it wouldn't be too presumptions to assume that a lot people aren't making the wisest choices when it comes to food.

Oh, I've read the thread. Still think it's nasty and judgemental.

Pft. Tell Sir Sean Connery his beard makes him look unattractive!

I have seen and know many men with gray in their beards and I don't think there's anything wrong with it, at all.

How so? You need to chill out, your letting strangers on an internet forum getting you this hostile.

I'm not hostile at all. I think your post is judgemental and mean. That is my opinion. Take or leave it. That said, if you wish to dress up and wear make-up, more power to 'ya. I'm all for being healthy, neat, and clean, but I have no use for cosmetics. I prefer the natural look.

Please point to me were I ever said that all women should wear makeup? That is not even the point of this thread. If you actually read the entire thread you would see that I encouraged women to let their faces breathe and nourish their natural beauty. I can't stand women who think just because they don't wear makeup they are some special snow flake or better then other women. If you were so secure with your choice you wouldn't get so defensive about it.

To MissLexi. Here is what I do everyday to stay healthy:

Shower in the morning with coconut oil and use sandalwood powder
Lift weights every afternoon and use deodorant afterwards
Keep myself well hydrated
Remained 100% vegan ever since birth

Do I in Anyway look attractive ? Judging by the opinion of CD posters, its a loud and clear No.

So get on with stuff, there are more important things to do for me than look good for attracting potential wives.

I will care about looks when needed.

He looks like a crusty grandpa.
If that is what you go for, so be it.
