Is it normal for my boyfriend to want me to wear makeup?

He says I should be more girly and that I should paint my nails, do my hair, dress better, and wear makeup.

I’m not that type of girl though... and never was nor pretended to be. So I don’t know why he wants me to change all of a sudden.

I don’t like to wear makeup nor do my nails. And I just leave my hair down, I don’t do anything fancy with it because I don’t care too. And as for clothes.. I just wear casual stuff. Like, I don’t know, a shirt and jeans or sweatpants. Whatever I feel like wearing. He wants me to be more dressy or showy...

I’ve done it once for him since he asked me too. I wore makeup, curled my hair, painted my nails, and put on nice clothes for him. He liked it a lot. But I dont want to do this every single fucking day. It’s not my thing. I don’t enjoy it.

Is It Normal?

  • If he’s really adamant on this, you should dump him. If you were never the type of girl to dress yourself up then there’s no reason for him to demand that you do. Plus getting ready can be huge annoyance if you have a lot to do, some people don’t have the time or patience to spend 2 hours getting ready. If he’s making a huge deal out of this, he’ll probably start making huge deals about other things he doesn’t like about you too and it’s not good to be in a relationship like that. If he won’t compromise then you’re better off without him.

  • I could understand for a date or get togethers with other people, but not everyday.

    You could try getting a manicure and pedicure and getting a fresh hair cut. I’ve had loads of haircuts that don’t require styling to look nice.

  • Then ask if this is worth a break up. If it is then break up. If not then do it for his birthday or as a reward for him.

    • That’s what I have done before. But he wants it everyday. It just sounds silly to breakup over though. I guess I should if he literally yells at me for it

      • If he yells for it hell yeah that's a reason.

        I'm not a makeup person, mainly because I like doing outdoor activities or slouching around the house. Neither requiring make up.

        Also if he doesnt like how you look without it you shouldn't be together in the first place.

        • Thank you, I agree.

          I just wish he felt the same but he doesn’t. If he can’t come to an agreement then I guess that’s what I’ll have to do.

      • Keep in mind that he is the one making it such a silly thing to break up over. If he's yelling at you about it and can't accept that it's not something you want to do every day, he should find someone else who wants to.

  • If you're a scruff bag he should give up trying to improve you and move on. You sound like you would like to go to a good restaurant dressed for fish and chips in the street.

  • I want to yes it's normal that he's into it and likes it, but him wanting you to be like that for him - well, it's like - you said you're not like that, so why was he attracted to you in the first place if he wants you to change?

  • This is a very simple and common problem with people in a relationship. Its not a big deal dont listen to the ones here saying dump him. (They are all single I wonder why)

    I've experienced this myself with my wife. Sometimes women get too comfortable when they have been in a relationship for a while. They let them selves go because they know he wont leave so they quit trying to be attractive.

    It sounds like your man loves you but he feels you are being abit butch. You could just dress up more for him. Its a very simple fix lets not exaturate this like its a big deal. Probably 99% of married people have gone through this one.

  • Why are u bitching about a typical guy? Honestly I do NOT feel sory for u women and in fact i feel sad for you.
    He will probably end up cheating anyhow.
    Didn't u know men are dick thinkers?
    They don't feel love, they see a girl and wanna fuck her and that's why they seek relationships, they think with their dicks not their heart

    • and what about women? who love to control the men they are with?
      you talk about like all women are saints, while in the majority of cases women are vile creatures who want nothing else than a man that stands up for them and money.

        • I think the opposite. Just look how many men ended in the streets due to false accusations against them because of false rape, bankruptcy, men that cannot see their kids, ect... i can go on and on.

          • Boo hoo bitch! I wonder why so many women are "accusing men". Maybe if you all werent a bunch of degenerate dick.thinkers fucking anything with a pulse fapping away like animals, women would be so mean

  • Hoe, if you don't like da way yo nigga controls you then you should be adamant in letting him know that he gonna lose you.
    You tell that nigga that a few times you been around that track so it's not just gonna happen like that coz you ain't no hollaback girl.

  • Sounds like he doesn't like how you look, but likes you for your personality. Most relationships like this never work out. You should probably leave.

  • Why are you still with this controlling guy? Dump him, honey, and move on with your life!

    Comment Hidden ( show )
  • Maybe he is tired of your ugly face and wants you to wear make up... maybe get another guy who appreciates you without make up, or just use a little, some guys get dissapointed when they see their girl without make up because that is how they knew the girl, WITH make up.

    • I never were makeup around him so what do you even mean? He liked me for my natural look and called me pretty. I never were makeup around him until he wanted me too.

          • Seeing how you refer to men as dick thinkers makes me assume you are just not only a feminist, but also a stupid sexist.

  • I'm the same way as you.

    I could understand him wanting you to dress up for special occasions, on dates, etc., but every day is excessive. If he's yelling at you about it, that's very extreme.

    To be honest, if it was such a big deal to him, he should've picked someone who was already that way instead of trying to change you. I will never understand why people get into relationships expecting to change the other person. If he can't accept that that's not your thing, then he needs to find someone else.

  • I’m of the opinion that people in relationships should make effort to look attractive but this sounds like he wants to mould you into a different person.

    • Guys will also be in full capacity to be able to move on from a person if they dont want to be pretty. Natural selection for both parties.

      • It’s not about “not wanting to be pretty”. He found me pretty without makeup and so do many others.

        • Well if you dont want to do X and he wants you to do X it's either negotiable or non negotiable. Be clear where you are on that issue and if he cant handle it break up.

    • Then why should he lie to me and tell me I’m pretty the way I am? That I’m beautiful without makeup? And then go against everything he said and says I need to wear it now? Literally makes no sense to me.

      If he wants someone more attractive, then he can find a new girl. I’m not putting on makeup everyday when I barely ever even go out. I don’t like makeup and want someone to love me for me and not for my looks
