Me.. I want to know what a woman will look like the next day...

Which is why I married a beautiful natural California girl... kissed by the sun... made by God.. molded by her hard work... and cherished by me

I agree with the all natural statement.. beauty doesn't come inside a bottle.. bondo doesnt fix what God gave as a gift...

With all the filters and such, pictures online can be a bit deceiving. Besides, I message women all the time I have no initial attraction to. Havent been much concerned with looks for awhile now, or to put it a different way, I do not need an attractive women. A normal average women is more than sufficient. My only requirement is that they not be hideous or wear too much make up.

Okay.

This is a long thread, and I didn't read most of the pages, so I hope I'm not about to ask a question that was already addressed.

But have you seen her without makeup yet?

Suave. It's the cheapest. Any deodorant bar soap will do.

Have never worn contacts. Glasses are safer.

I have worn essentially the same haircut since I was 7 years old, except for my time in the military when I wore a buzz cut.

You are also vain. You are also superficial.

I'm pretty sure you have more than one mirror in your house. And I'm pretty sure that you make deliberate choices when it comes to your shampoo, soap, other toiletries, wardrobe, and hair, no matter how 'simple' and not 'vain' you think those choices are. You could take care of all of your hygiene needs with 1 bottle of Dr. Bronner's all purpose soap (even brushing your teeth), but I'm pretty sure you don't do that. And neither do any of the other holier-than-thou, self-described, 'all natural' people here. I'm reasonably sure that your toiletries say things like 'moisturizing', 'whitening', 'exfoliating', 'smoothing'.

You don't have any business making judgments about a woman's priorities and character based on her makeup, and you especially don't have any business making predictions about her 'future kids'. Wow. Just wow. Arrogant and presumptuous.
I only ended up here because the thread box said somebody started a thread about natural women. Besides my wife, I know three. One is a co-worker who has never worn makeup. At 42 years old she still looks great. One is a concert pianist who does wear makeup for performances. I commented on her "new look" backstage one night and she told me she felt like a transvestite. Mostly she wears sweats and cowboy boots, and tends to smell a little horsey. She is one of the sexiest women I have ever met in my life. The third is also a co-worker, but she rolled naturals in the great crap shoot of genetics. She could make a movie star look dumpy. She's kind of an object lesson. If you aren't born that way or can''t afford corrective surgery, just relax and be yourself.

I don't care how she wants to present herself. I always look for the good and focus on her best features.

This is true.

If you wanna see how "hot" someone is, check them out first thing in the morning. By doing this, the league of 'beautiful people' shrinks by at least half.

I will throw up some pics soon for visuals.
I have wondered when men say "natural look", if what they mean is one who has applied makeup in such a way that they appear more naturally or referring to a female who is so young, that she really requires nothing.

IVe known a few men of friends who insist their wives or girlfriend dont use makeup or get dolled up and yes their control freaks who are deep down scared someone will steal their possession. so if you like it girls go for it..I am older now but still like a little makeup on during the day.. it makes me appear more healthy and awake.. and its never for a man.... Ever..

It seems you have a different outlook, but let's look at this - anything a person does as they see in the mirror, ultimately reaches a comfort level, therefore attaining confidence. Yes, it would be nice if one could just jump out of bed, dress and go somewhere, but most would not, but should feel confident no matter what.

I think there is something to be said for maintaining good grooming alone, but I also think that there has existed an out-of-balance conditioning toward women to create and maintain a certain level of appearance, to be outwardly acceptable amongst others. It is that that adds to a woman's confidence, again, due to conditioning. I don't leave the house until I feel "prepared", being comfortable with my "own style", but nicely groomed.

I have had mostly male neighbors upstairs and have overheard them shower and leave the house, shortly afterward... and will think - "wow"). But men have not had the same pressure...((sigh))...since they are comfortable dressing simply and leaving with wet hair - no special preparation. They have skin as we do, but are accepted "as is", facially. (Hey, I don't mean the real lookers, who you know do a little more). Just saying, it is a bit easier.
