Pre-retirement I'd be up, showered, dressed, hair done and had breakfast and out of the house an hour after waking up.

Now that I'm retired, I could care less if it takes me 3 hours to get out of the house!

About 35 min. total. 15 min. for make-up, 10 min. get dressed, 5 min. hair, 5 min. collecting stuff to go.

Prefer showers after work, before bed.

Now in retirement, we allow at least an hour. Don't want to rush anything.

I won't post my routine or times. But I get to the gym by 3:30 am and am at work by 6 am. It takes me 2 hours to get ready to go to the gym. From gym (quick flash shower, let hair down and change) and off to work.

See Shaving in Shower or at Bathroom Sink? Or Elsewhere?

In short it's usually about an hour, give or take, from getting out of bed to putting the keys into the car's ignition. During that period I need to shower, shave, get something to eat, program my day and rearrange the cars in the driveway (one car garage) so that the rest of the family can leave in the right order. Anything that shaves (no pun intended) time off that period is of value. This morning I managed to get out in 50 minutes so that I could be the first customer at the barber shop. At the price of eating breakfast, one-third of a head of lettuce, on the road.
It CAN be as little as one hour, but sometimes, if I wake up earlier, it can be 1.5 to 2.

Shower, dry, dress
Eat, floss, brush
Dogs out, dogs fed, dogs in
Grab things, lock up, pull away

You know it is funny, this morning while I was getting ready for work, I had a thought, and it occurred to me that it would make a fine response to share on any of the MANY threads over the years where a man so helpfully told women that the reasons for our choices in attire and appearance are for the benefit of men's eyes. But what were the chances this very subject would be raised? I'm not going to make a thread about it.

And here you are. So thanks, I guess.

I've heard women complain about this particular piece of logic because they feel that men always orient everything through the "male gaze." That to a man, literally every thing is about men, related to men, revolves around men. What goes on in a man's head must be the reason for a woman doing whatever she does. OK I get that particular flavor of umbrage, but I think there is a strong element, rather, of projection going on. Because (hetero, obviously) men make a lot of choices...some men make practically ALL of their choices...around impressing women, wooing women, getting women, attracting women, approaching women, whether for a one night stand or a lifelong relationship (which decision should be his to make, so long as he can get their attention in the first place.) It's been said that the greatest musicians, innovators, and leaders of government and industry, did it all for the nookie.

Well if that's even SORT OF true, then I get why men would really want to believe that women's choices about our day to day appearance are made to "attract a mate."

But I gotta let you in on a not-so-secret piece of information. We don't have to. Ya'll make it way too easy for most of us, and if we're not decent looking in general enough for that to be true, odds are, makeup and heels won't make it so. I don't think I get any more attention from men when I'm "cleaned up real good" than I do when I'm wearing baggy pants and a GWAR t-shirt. Actually the t-shirt usually gets the attention of random men more than anything. Makeup? I very rarely wear it. Less than once a month. And yet...

I don't have men chasing me online like some women I know, but the men I know in person, plenty of them have an interest. No heels or makeup needed.

The reasons that I occasionally dress this or that way, though, have nothing to do with reactions I want from men. Or don't. I give it no thought when I'm getting dressed and ready on any day. What I am after, is to be able to look in a mirror, and be happy with what I see. I tell you what, find a reflective surface, like a shop window, in public, and watch women walk by it if there are men (like you) around. See if they look at you to see if you're reacting, or if they look in the reflective surface at themselves. I'd bet money on the outcome of this one. The one opinion we care about more than any other, is our own. And it's the most fragile and critical one of all.
