All my married sisters: Do you ever feel that because YOU'RE the only woman your DH has a coveted right to look at, that you want to look your very best?

  • I like to look nice for myself, and for him, but let's not kid ourselves here, all men look at other women regardless.

  • Well, such is true, but i was only trying to narrow the view here, and avoid the "he checks other people out" comments... : )

  • Well, no. I look my best because it makes ME feel good. And I don't think I am the only one he should look at... He's married, not dead!

  • My husband has the right to look at whomever or whatever he wants.  I look my best for myself and my husband appreciates my efforts.  It just so happens that other men appreciate my efforts too.

  • i feel gross if i dont at least have a little makeup on or if im wearing sweats or whatever. i dont always "look nice"... mostly if i am sick or w/e... like today i have a terrible cold and its all i can do to drink some tea and hang out with my 18 month old.. so im in sweats and no makeup, hair in pony tail... otherwise yes i like ot look nice for my hubby... i dont want him thinking "why cant she look nice like the women at work?" or w/e... i dont think he would ever cheat... but i dont want him feeling bad abut me or embarrassed at his "frumpy" wife...lol

  • My DH likes me frumpy, lol, but I like to dress up for him. And I don't just mean hair, makeup, etc... I mean, it never really occurred to me until I listened to a sermon I missed from church (Our church is 2 hours away, and haven't found one we really want to stay at yet that is closer) that I really AM the only woman my DH wants to be with. Why wouldn't I want to look great and feel even better for him? (I really don't care what I look like for myself, lol, there are days I can realize, "I haven't looked in the mirror for a week!) It's hard to imagine, but I really don't!

    I want to get to the gym, and I'd rather shut off my telephone to afford it! But I don't know anyone yet to go with, and I lack the motivation to do so on my own! But I'd love to look better for him, again!
