When it comes to the world of dating, the length and overall closeness of the relationship determines which walls will come down and when fronts will be cast aside. For guys, it may mean that he will let her see him when he needs a haircut. For ladies it could mean a bunch of things-no makeup, sweaty from a visit to the gym, sweats and a t-shirt instead of her usual nice outfit and heels, etc.
Ladies, going without the scarf is nothing short of a catastrophe. That scarf protects our hair from sweat while working out, random dust during cleaning sessions in our homes, and flying mist when we’re in the shower. Him seeing you in one is going to happen sooner or later.
But when? How long do you wait?
I recently had to wear my scarf and he happened to see it. I was dreading it. After several months of dating, you’d think I’d have been okay with the prospect, but alas it still made me uncomfortable. It’s not like he’d never seen me in a compromising position, (beauty) maintenance-wise. I’ve been seen with little-to-no makeup, (fitted) sweats/t-shirts and unruly hair (nights out on the town) before. But for me my scarf is the ULTIMATE beauty fail lol. It had been a nasty, rainy day and my hair was about to poof up-I had to protect it. Had too! I was left with no other options, so on came the scarf. I cringed as I waited on his reaction.
There was none.
I breathed a sigh of relief. Why did I make such a big deal about it in the first place? Smh, I felt uber wack.
Do you have any similar instances? Is this worry reserved only for women? Are you especially self-conscious about being seen with no makeup? Holes in your basketball shorts? Hair not perfectly coiffed/straightened? Messy apartment? Chipped nail polish? Unruly eyebrows? Hairline not lined up all the way? And how did he/she react?
I better not be the only one trippin.
