Anyways look as pictures of people from the 50s/60s, everybody was pretty then because of the way they adorned themselves so nicely.
We've sort of lost that value in our society. So you'll feel lucky anytime you meet a pleasant person.:3

Default I work with 30 yo to 50-something yo

There is one lady, our office manager, who wears some makeup to work other than me. These are average-looking young ladies, but truthfully, they could really use a little help--they come in with damp hair, no makeup, frumpy clothes, sometimes flip-flops when we don't have patients. Over lunch one day, I said I do put on makeup to go out and mostly I got responses like "I don't have time to do that!" Told them my routine takes 5-6 minutes--longer if I wash and dry my hair, of course. I don't understand it! (My mother put on lipstick to go pick up the mail.)

This post is so overly-simplistic, it's useless as advice.
I agree some statements do seem to be making that usual argument.

This country has an obesity epidemic we can't no longer tolerate all this pc sensitivity to make people feel better. If people are so open in denouncing being anorexia as being unhealthy and unattractive why can't with obesity or excessive fat? Neither is attractive or healthy.
Please don't try to equate the two unless you are going to refer to morbid obesity as it relates to anorexia otherwise being overweight or consider obese which varies, aren't the same by any means. You can have fat on the body and still be quite healthy, but being anorexic, one is clearly at deaths door, which is why many times an intervention or hospitalization is required.

There are arguments to be made against obesity, but the comparison of the two being overweight and anorexia isn't one that stands up by any means just because one doesn't like how someone that is carrying a bit more weight looks to you and others. overweight/obese and being underweight needing to gain some poundage not a death sentence. Morbid obesity = likely death sentence anorexia = for sure a death sentence

Personally, I'm overweight/obese by scale measurements, but I know I walk the streets make a far better appearance than most people, thin or not, I come across on a day to day basis. Not that living in my area that's saying much, but, I believe I present well when I go out in public. Well there was that time I was dumpster diving that I wasn't looking so great, I kind of looking like a homeless person.

Anyway, I do realize this thread isn't about size issues, but about how many don't make an effort to take care of how they dress, but, some here have decided to use just being fat as grounds for being unattractive and I disagree and I would take issue even if I wasn't a fat chica. Those that just want to use every opportunity to bring up fatness in every thread on the F&B threads, well, I have nothing to say to you, you'll think and say as you wish no matter what; I'm not going to try to sway your thoughts, there are already enough people in life that have views that make the world a place where there's room enough for all degrees of beauty in the eye of the beholder. Thankfully, I encounter such people often.

My son recently commented how unattractive most women are if they don't wear makeup.

Perhaps this is due to the lack of modern conveniences that rule our lives today. People of that era had to move more. Their food also were not filled with chemicals.

I'm going to endorse this 100%. I have some very good looking guy friends that would easily agree with me on this one. Us men tend to compromise on the looks portion in favor of women that are cool, chill and laid back with positive attitudes for life. Fun, outgoing and seem to turn dull or negative moments into fun positive ones.

We could certainly careless about looks when the woman in question is negative all day long. There is nothing worse than a negative, stuck-up, prude, rude, I'm better than everyone attitude.

Looks are only half of it, by a long shot.

Honestly, I am just not interested in wearing make-up. I exercise, keep my hair nicely trimmed, eat a healthy diet, and dress neatly. If that's not good enough, people can sod off.

I find women that need makeup to do anything have low self-esteem or other mental issues going on.

Some women will use it to "cover up" blemishes or whatever, but honestly as a guy I really don't care about blemishes.
