  • I'd say yes and no. But I say it in the same way I would say for a guy. It depends on how much. Think about it this way, a girl sees a shiny napkin holder in the table and pulls out her compact and a guy with gel in his hair also sees that napkin holder. As you put on makeup you have to think about him fixing his hair next to you as well. But commonly you would go to the "powder room" to do that anyway. But guys and girls can do it. It depends on the amount of time that you do it, trying clothes on for example. You want to find the right one you feel good in but you need to balence that with the time you have to be where you are going and or the time you have on your date for example. There is also a healthy form of it and also spending too long dwelling on it. To the same of being unhealthy to yourself.

    I'd say it's good to have a balance. To feel good in your confidence but also allowing yourself sometime accept and feel good about what you see in the mirror. Given, girls need more time naturally to get ready but it's a good thing having more confidence in your mirror appearance because then you can be satisfied quicker so you can get out of the door faster

  • It can be a turn off. For example (from my experience) I’ve known plenty of self conscious women. Usually it’s due to something that happened to them in their past. Let’s take beauty for example. I can sit there and tell her that she’s beautiful every day because she is. But due to someone/thing in her past making her feel low about herself my comments are hard for her to accept. Maybe after some time goes by she will accept them and start to see that she’s got no reason to be self conscious about her beauty but it’s a 50/50 chance depending on how deep that issue goes.
    Being self conscious in other areas it’s still just a matter of accepting that you might not be as knowledgeable or great in other areas as other people. Just means you have to take the time to make yourself knowledgeable and don’t give up. Also don’t pretend to know or be something/someone you’re not. I always say hey if you don’t know something just ask or do some research.

  • It depends on how much. Like if she is always complain about how she thinks she is ugly that is annoying. If she is shy when getting undressed that’s cute.

  • I think it can be, because it can be a sign of a lack of confidence. I think that's been one of my greatest downfalls in life, honestly.

  • No. A HUGE turn off.

  • If a girl has some insecurities, it tells me that she is probably not an arrogant diva. If she is so self-conscious that she insists on turning off the lights before she gets undressed, that is a turn off but not a deal breaker.

    • For instance?
