It is easy to become relaxed and comfortable when you are in a new relationship. Things tend to become less sexy after that honeymoon phase ends and you start to let yourself go a bit. The first casualty of this sort of thing is your attraction to one another.
A lot of guys tell me that their women have become too sloppy or stop caring about their appearance as much. This can lead to some awkward situations and men get accused of being shallow. I don’t think a person is shallow for wanting their mate’s appearance to be attractive.
The same thing goes for single people. I always joke that single girls don’t get days off. We never know when we may run into someone who could be a potential romance, so leaving the house looking a mess is not always a good thing. Even if you don’t have a new relationship, you should care about your appearance so that you project a polished image.
Do you think you could use a little bit of a makeover? Have you ever let things slip a bit because you stopped caring?
If you are in a relationship, what do you do when your mate stops putting effort into looking good? Why do you think we let ourselves go after we become part of a couple?
