Is it best just to stop?

I'm thinking of just stopping all my grooming. I don't mean like showering, brushing my hair or teeth or anything like that. I mean like doing my hair, wearing make up and looking for cute clothes. If you've seen my other posts you know that I've been wanting to look better for my husband. But I realized that nothing works. I got my hair done the other day and nothing. I don't feel I should I have to do my hair, make up and other things to attract a man that doesn't even care. I'm sick of him seeing his celeb hotties on tv and saying "Oh her hair looks amazing like that!" when I BEG him to give me an opinion on mine.. Is it best just to stop? Or am I being a crabby ass brat?

  • You don't have to do your hair and make up everyday. I used to but stopped. I starighten my hair almost everyday but I do my make up like twice a week. It doesn't seem to make a difference. I get the same amount of attention if I do or don't. Defintly don't just stop but don't do it all the time just to impress him. Material stuff shouldn't be important.

  • If it makes YOU feel good dont worry about him. I do my hair and makeup most of the time and my SO just says you look beautiful without makeup. That kinda annoys me, b/c I dont think so. I just do it for me b/c it makes me feel good and when I feel good, everyone in the house is happy. If you dont want to spend the time dont, sometimes you gotta put your feelings first.

  • Do it for yourself, don't ever do it for him. My hubby gets mad that I don't wear makeup around the house, and I'm like, "hey, I wear makeup when I damn well feel like it" not when he thinks I should. Sometimes I get all dolled up in the morning just because I like to feel like a girl. I do my nails, hair, makeup, etc. Other times, I just chill in my pajamas.
