Although, she is making it pretty clear that she wears makeup for her hubby. It’s one thing if a guy appreciates it when you dress up for him, but where do we draw the line between appreciation and trophy?
Jessica Biel admitted that her fiance Justin Timberlake sometimes changes her outfits.”We both really love fashion. There are definitely moments where I’ll come out in an outfit and he’ll give me that look! He’ll take me back into the closet and I’ll change my shoes and I’m like, ‘Yeah, this is way better.’ Sometimes I won’t change.”
I’m not going to pretend I know the intimate details of either of these couple’s personal lives, but the statements do stir up an interesting topic. How much would you let your BF or GF weigh in on what you have to wear? When does is start to feel like too much?
If you ask for fashion advice, then I say it’s fair game. However, I think lots of guys and girls are guilty of trying to change their sweetie’s appearance a bit too much.
A bad hair cut here, a pair of sweatpants there and all of a sudden you’re going shopping together and the person you’re dating is vetoing everything you like and making you try on things you would never wear.
In some ways, it’s almost understandable. The person you’re dating is like an ambassador of who you are. When my friends have dated douchebags, I’m not going to lie, it made me think of them differently. Although, it’s one thing when someone has a bad attitude and another when you don’t like how they look.
What difference does it make if the whole world finds your partner desirable if you find them desirable? You’re the one who is dating them. I once knew a girl who’s boyfriend demanded that she wear a matching bra and panties, that she straightened her wavy hair when they went out, and that she always wear makeup. My cousin was a straight up baggy jeans, baseball cap wearing tomboy until she found out the boy she liked only dated “girly girls”. She was all dresses after that.
On the flip side I’ve known a couple of girls whose boyfriends wouldn’t allow them to wear anything but sweatpants because they didn’t want other guys looking at them. Both situations are just examples of insecure dudes trying to control their girlfriend’s appearance because they need the world to see them in a certain way. But even a comment here and there can make someone feel self-conscious.
What do you think? Would you ever try to change someone’s appearance? Would you ever change your appearance for someone you liked? Let us know in the comments!
