>Why do you care about what you look like?
Because feeling like I look good does a lot not just for my confidence/self esteem, but on my general attitude. Doing some killer eyeliner and putting on red lipstick can turn a shit day into a great day.
Also, I shamelessly love attention, from anyone. Oops.
How about you OP.
Is this even a serious question?
Are you seriously asking why anyone would care about what the look like, as if they can't up with ONE single reason? Self-esteem could be one, don't you think smart one?
I have low self-esteem. It's a strange world we live in.
>Why do you care about what you look like?
Because I don't know if the "girls like men with good personality" thing is a meme.
Some guy had a thread on r9k using this handsome mick model's photos on okcupid without even writing anything in the description, and he was getting flooded with messages from cute girls. For all that people say looks don't matter, I feel like that's more a message of "just give up" than "don't worry about it".
And I don't do great with women, and I have red hair. And I hear the "gingers are fuck ugly" thing every day, and I feel like it's sinking in that I'll never actually be any girl's type.
It's okay, man. Look, the world sucks. In real life, I'm 6'3, built like a rugby player but I am like Michael Cera, I'm so awkward so that's a major turn off. I have really funny/or bad quirks. Such as buying the compete outfit Ryan Gosling wore in the film, "Drive".
Because I spent my early teens looking like this
I have the same thing. I was ugly for my entire childhood and I think I'm really vain now.
I dated a girl who was thin and hot in high school but gained a whole shitload of weight later and she couldn't understand why I was so obsessed with trying to look good, and preached a lot of stuff about how it shouldn't matter and yada yada.
I think being an ugly duckling changes you in some way. I can't even imagine not caring about my looks.
Because a lot about getting ahead in life is about people judging you based on your appearance. Success comes with the way you dress and the way you carry yourself, I mean you can "look good" but that won't get you that far unless you're an actor, dressing the part is part of it.
What it comes down to is I care about my social status is why I care how I look, which includes both women and job prospects.
I've honestly been considering the switch to only wearing dress shirts lately.
What normal human being doesn't wanna look good?
Pic related, then&now is reason enough
wrong picture, fuck
that's my sister
It was like that for me, but at this point in my life I don't want to die just by eating a double cheeseburger like my father.
Pic related, it's me now
It helps improve your quality of life externally and internally that is if you like confidence and positive attention
Tfw when I've been told several times "wow you look good for a ginger" when did this gingers are ugly meme start I blame the media
our ancestors are fucking vikings ffs and apparently we usually have large cocks
any who don't worry about it anon just keep trying to improve some women are crazy for us
Do it I quit wearing tshirts awhile back and I've gotten many compliments because of it also invest in some nice jackets pants n shoes
avoid shiny shoes and /fa/ wear slim fit straight jeans and shop at nordstrom rack
For the most I don't, it's only until I'm in a picture and I look like shit that I actually care. Then I remember I look like shit most of the time anyway, so I stop caring.
>Not providing picture because irony.
Because I looked like right one for 25 years, looks affect your confidence man. Thank god I'm recovering.
A ton of women have a thing for gingers.
Here's the rule regarding looks, at least to me.
If you're looking for partners, like online or in a bar, looks matter.
It's a fact. Looks matter, and people are searching for people who look good to them, because they have nothing else to gauge it off.
But, if you're not necessarily looking for someone, and you end up making friends, like at a park or a cafe, they don't matter so much.
People can get to know you, and find themselves insanely attracted to you, but with you looking kinda gross.
For long term, looks don't really matter, since you're going to end up old and saggy anyways, but it's not likely you'll find someone online who doesn't judge looks first.
