Advice for Girls: Does Looking Sexy Really Matter?
Girls expose more skin than those of their ancestor nowadays. Girls do this because boys, and our society, give a lot of attention to a girl’s appearance.
In short, the sexier the looks, the greater the chance of success in the mating game.
Sexy means “sexually suggestive or stimulating” (Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary). Girls spend more than ten times on cosmetic products to maintain their appearance, than boys.
Nevertheless, does a sexy look really end in a better relationship with the boys?
The answer is not necessarily.
A Sexy Look Does Not Work Long Term
A sexy look does not work when you are looking for a long-term relationship. According to Hill, Nocks, and Gardner (1987), the more skin a woman exposed, the more men consider her as a potential short-term sex partner and the less men consider her as a long-term partner.
A woman that showed off more of her body by wearing a shorter dress or revealing more of her breasts is more attractive on the dating, sexual, and physical relationship scene, but less attractive as marriage material.
Showing Less Skin Does Work
If you are looking for a long-term relationship, it is better to expose less skin. Wear clothes which cover most of your body, especially in areas which stimulate erotically (such as breasts, thighs and buttock region).
There are other sufficient ways to have a healthy and long-term relationship rather than exposing your body.
In the end, the decision is yours. What kind of relationship are you looking for? Are you looking for a casual sex-partner or short-term relationship? The sexy look does work if all you want is sex, but don’t expect the boys to remember anything you say, especially when you are exposing your breasts.
If you are looking for a long-term partner, wear clothes that cover most of your body – then boys will see you as having potential as a long-term partner.
