Guys Care About These 10 Things Way Less Than You Might Think

Some of us dress to impress because we want to land our crush or keep our boyfriend interested. Of course, it makes much more sense to dress for ourselves, because men care less about our fashion choices than we think they do. In fact, there are quite a few things that we assume they care about that they barely notice at all. That’s why you should start living your life without worrying about what your man might think of your choices.

  1. What your makeup looks like. Your man doesn’t care if your eyes and lips are covered in black makeup, or if you’re walking around without any on at all. As long as you’re happy, he’s happy. That’s why you should wear makeup for you—not for anybody else.
  2. What your hair looks like. Don’t freak out when a few pieces of hair fall out of your bun. The messy look can actually be sexier than the sleek look. Besides, when he tosses you in bed, that hairstyle is going to get ruined, anyway.
  3. How long it takes you to orgasm. Stop thinking about how long his face has been in between your legs, because your worries are only going to make you take longer to orgasm. Men love to challenge themselves, so he doesn’t really care how long it takes you to orgasm. He just wants to know that he got the job done.
  4. How big your boobs are. When you take off your top, he isn’t scrutinizing the size and shape of your breasts. He’s just thankful that they’re right there in front of him. He couldn’t be happier.
  5. How chipped your nail polish is. It doesn’t matter if you’re holding hands or letting him slip an engagement ring on your finger. No matter how close your hands are to his face, he’s not going to notice the state of your nail polish. He won’t notice the color either, so wear whatever shade you prefer.
  6. Where you eat for dinner. When he asks you what restaurant you want to go to for dinner, he doesn’t care what your answer is. He just wants you to pick something, so that he doesn’t have to make the decision himself. So don’t be shy and voice your opinion.
  7. What you eat for dinner. Speaking of dinner, he won’t care if you order a greasy hamburger instead of a salad. If you get ketchup on your face, he’ll think it’s cute. It’s certainly not a deal breaker, because a woman has to eat. It’s part of life.
  8. How much weight you’ve gained. Even if you’ve fallen for a super shallow man, he’s not going to notice the extra pound you gained around the holidays. A woman’s weight fluctuates, and there’s nothing you can do about it, so why would he give a damn?
  9. What his family thinks of you. Sure, life would be easier if his mother approved of you. Of course, if he really likes you, he won’t care what his friends and family have to say about you. He’s going to stick with you, no matter what.
  10. How much body hair you have. If you miss a spot shaving, he’s not going to be grossed out. He has stubble, too, so he’s used to seeing it. So don’t be embarrassed over being born with hair in strange places. We’re all in the same boat.
