A close guy friend recently asked me, "Alyssa, why do you go through the trouble of putting on makeup everyday, painting my nails, doing my hair, and dressing nice for school everyday? Guys don't even notice all of that effort girls put in to look good for school."
My face looked something like this...
Maybe, just maybe, girls "go through the trouble" of doing all of those things, not to impress a boy, but because we actually want to do something for ourselves.
What a concept!!!!
Yes I wake up about two hours earlier than necessary in the morning to primp and prime before school. I don't do all of those things to impress a high school boy. I do all of those things because I want to be put together, presentable, and fashionable. Not for others, but for myself. It is amazing how much better I feel about myself when I try to look good.
No it isn't necessary to do this. Some girls don't and are perfectly happy, which is great! For me personally, if I look good, then I feel good. Its science- trust me.
