    Dunno man, that's a dodgy argument. Some women just like the confidence it gives them, without paying much attention to the attractiveness/sex thing necessarily. My girlfriend likes dressing nice and all that purely because it makes her happy. I see it. We could be going to a goddamn film where she'll be sat in the dark for two hours, but it makes her happy, perhaps more outgoing. I don't think it's a sex thing.

    Women just plain like looking nice. Always have, always will. Doesn't mean they're on a perpetual hunt for a man. And tbh, I find it quite an endearing quality, and try to catch up in my own effeminate, metrosexual way.
    I never said it was for sex. I only mentioned sex because people want to be found attractive subconsciously because it is their natural duty to have it and procreate. I detoured from that to get to my main point that whether ppl realise it or not they want to be found attractive because they know they won't be made fun of so easily if at all, and thus they feel more confident. I also mentioned that there are people who literally do it to feel nice/happy/feel bad without it. I never said for sex.

    Not really, actually haven't work a single bit of makeup in about two weeks and love it!
    Normally I'll just wear eyeliner, concealer and Vaseline. Although iI've started to fill in my eyebrows, hate how they're so thin and sparse
    Don't get the wrong idea though, I'm not a tramp. I just get told I look better without makeup lol. I do make an effort on occasions though

    I don't make an effort for going out. I will for special occasions but I don't like it.

    Afghans are usually dark skinned. They want to be pale, so they put foundation (that is like 6x lighter than their own shade) on. :P Afghans eh? haha

    Well I don't think it's funny that people desperately want to be pale but whatever.

    You can look at someone and tell they're black. You can look at someone and tell they're Asian. You can look at someone and tell they're Arab. If you're good you can tell the difference between an Arab and an Indian, a Korean and a Japanese and an Indonesian. That's what I mean. I can look at people and tell what Caribbean Island they are from, etc.

    Most likely mixed in his ancestry. She's right that most are darker like many Indians and Arabs.

    Arabs are as diverse as Latin Americans, due to colonialism and modern integration. So you will get a Greek looking Arab, a black looking Arab, an Indian looking Arab and then what is deemed today's typical Arab like a Kardashian or something. Of course there is an exception to every rule but in general you can look at someone and tell their race or ethnicity if that concerns you. And the girl who is Afghani has the eyes, the lips, and facial structure of many Middle Easterners despite her shade. I also don't know what people mean by looking white however, as so many people false claim being it.
