Not your SO's, but your own?
For me, its pretty important. I mean , come on, as women, we dont get as charming or as handsome as most men do when they age.. we age like hell..lol. So I make sure I am always looking at least mosly put together when SO is around (out of jamies/ sweats, minimal makeup, hair done, earrings in, shaved and good smelling).. yes even with 3 kids (one being born 2 months ago). If we go out, its a tight sexy dress and high heels. I dont want to be upstaged by anyone younger or sexier than me...lol. I know my hubby adores me, even when i had morning sickness and puked in the toilet while he comforted me, but I know I am more attracted to my hubby when he's dressed up and smelling nice then when he comes home from work stinky and disheveled. I want be attractive to my man all the time.
I also eat right and workout to keep myself in shape and healthy.
What about you? Why do you (or dont you) care?

I think you and I view "our appearance" differently. For me it is being the best I can be... it is NOT a competition. I dont feel the need to out sex someone and have no issue at all with my age (43). So Im not sure how to answer this.
My appearance IS important to me. I go to the dds every 6 mo. I wash/moisturize my face daily. I wear sunscreen every day. I dress well and appropriate to my body, age, and the event. I go to the hair dresser every 8 weeks. And I exercise regularly. I am ageing gracefully and intend to continue on that path.

I'm 47 and look 10 years younger. My looks are important enough to me that I want to look well presented but not important enough to have surgery or botox or anything else like that. I plan on aging gracefully.
