    That's ridiculous and compulsive, you should wash every 2-3 days tops.
    Washing every 2 days sounds ridiculous as well... Unless we are talking about using soap and shampoo?

    I'm sorry anon, I have destroyed your thread. But seriously don't worry about it, you don't need to lower your standars at all. Just be confident and happy with in yourself and the right guy will come
    Haha, dw, it's entertaining to read :lol:
    Showering 3 times a day, that's a first

    Oh and @ OP.

    When you get desperate enough. Like me. Standards just go out the window one by one. At the moment my only standard is that she is a nice person. Open minded. And not massively fat. Oh and obviously hygienic. but really that's not asking for much. I ignore pretty much everything else.
    Haha, ah right XD so when I hit 30 and I'm potentially still single, I might have a chance of lowering my standard then? XD

    No! It''s good that you have high standards!
    Really? Why though? Everybody I know seems to think it's a terrible thing to have high standards XD

    Don't doubt yourself. If man were to accept what they had, we as a species wouldn't be where we are today. Don't feel disheartened aiming at the high end of the market and not succeeding. Keep hammering at it, you'll find a lovely guy
    Haha, using the evolution argument, I like it. To be honest, that's true. But it just feels like I'm constantly setting myself up for failure by aiming so high XD
    I guess if I started wearing make-up, that could help me a bit?

    Well I'm 20 and still seemingly eternally single. And only 20 by 2months so... Not that far off...

    Wearing make-up would help though. If you do it properly anyway. Just use eyeliner and concealer. Don't need to go crazy. The difference that that alone makes is ridiculous.

    I guess it would help but remember, all guys are different. Some guys drool over dolled up girls who go the full 100 yards to look like art pieces. Other guys(like me) much prefer natural beauty outright. It entirely depends on who you are setting your sights on.

    How much do you wash then?:eyeball:
    Each morning, except the weekends.

    Then a quick shower with just water after a good work-out and before going out.

    Well, ****. I'm basically 18 so it looks like I could very well be in your position when I'm your age D:

    I think I'll try it out. Hopefully it will improve my face slightly :lol:

    The amusing thing about that, is that a lot of guys can't tell when a girl is wearing make-up. So when they say that they prefer the 'natural look', they're almost always referring to subtle make-up look which is a long way away from the hot mess that a lot of girls look like without make-up on XD XD

    No bull****, it's true. It seriously grossed me out, he was doing it so casually too. It was a double period of biology and I was stuck next to him the entire time. Grossest thing ever D:

    Not good. Don't do that. Do anything to avoid it. It sucks

    Just want to say you are soooooooooooooooooooo right about the second part. Most guys don't have a clue about make-up but I am telling you right now eyeliner makes everyone, guys included, way more attractive for most people. Human eyes are beautiful things. Eyeliner draws you into them rather than one's wrinkly skin :P Mascara on the other hand is far easier to get wrong.

    If you want a fairly objective rating of your make-up routine I can provide a male's perspective XD

    But didn't you just say that washing every two days was "ridiculous"?

    You're just contradicting yourself.

    I can imagine dear gosh, I really hope somebody pities me enough to date me before I actually turn 18 XD

    The power of eyeliner, eh? I find it amusing that a lot of guys can't tell when a girl is wearing eyeliner though :lol: Mascara scares me D: that stabby wand thing is potentially lethal D:

    My make up routine at the moment: wake up. Brush teeth. Shower. Tie back hair. Vaseline on lips. Leave house :lol:

    You don't moisturise? Ha. I shave and moisturise on top of that. Oh... I do't tie my hair back. But I always comb it and style it with product... If I'm really really trying (meeting someone specific or interview) I'll wear brow-gel on my eyelashes and eyebrows as well as concealer if need be. Just swap the brow-gel for eyeliner and pluck your eyebrows so you don't have stray hairs. *makes an a-OK sign with fingers* Beauty
