Can a woman be too glamorous?

Would you be put off by a woman that you consider too glamorous? Why?

What is too glamorous?
Dustybin  Male  Suffolk 7-Jul-2016 22:52 Message #4644530
At one time I had a good friend who was engaged to Miss Clapham Common.

He was very ordinary, she was very glam. Everywhere they went together guys tried their luck with her; my friend told them to clear off and there was a punch up in which he came off worst. After about 6 months in which he was a frequent visitor to casualty, she got fed up and dumped him. He never got over her.

= I cannot remember her exact title!

There was supposed to be an asterisk after Common but I have just found out how posters manage to do italics on here!.

I appreciate natural beauty but when people (note: no gender bias!) go to extra lengths to make themselves (seemingly) more attractive then I regard that as being tantamount to lying - presenting a false image.

If a woman was naturally glamorous then that wouldn't put me off her - what would put me off such a woman is if she wasn't prepared to don rags and get her hands dirty when the occasion called for it.

Is that Glamorous or high maintenance?
Seasons-Greetings  Male  Essex 8-Jul-2016 09:18 Message #4644558
It might be a put off on a couple of fronts.

1- The man might feel he's too plain vanilla for the too glamorous woman (i.e. she wouldn't be interested in him) and so not bother with an approach, and/or

2 - The man might think that someone who is that glamorous would be too high maintenance.

What is too glamorous? No idea I'm afraid so, no, I don't think someone can be too glamorous.

I do remember being put off contacting someone on another site when I read her answer to the question "What's the first thing people notice about you?" Her answer was "my matching accessories". I would hate to think someone felt they had to have matching accessories all the time...There are occasions when it is appropriate to dress down and dress casual.
jennifer  Female  Gloucestershire 8-Jul-2016 11:13 Message #4644590
Great reply, Nigel. Anyone who thinks that their matching accessories are the first thing people would notice about them is, sadly, missing out on who someone is and not what someone is or has as being more important.

Lol, Nigel. Perhaps the 'matching accessories' is a euphemism?
brisinger  Male  Lancashire 8-Jul-2016 13:33 Message #4644616
P'raps she was meaning that she hadn't had a mastectomy...

...or, the carpet matches the curtains. ;-}

you cant make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.

Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder and real beauty comes from within.

...and here's me thinking beauty is in the hands of the beer holder :*)

I must be high maintenance as i like

everything to match to a certain degree

cannot abide colours that dont go with each other.

Everything had to blend in and look right.

I dated an ex Vogue model for about a year and I felt like the mechanic / gardener. I think it was a Lady Chatterley kinda thing
capnblackbeard  Male  Hertfordshire 31-Aug-2016 21:17 Message #4653490
i think the only problem with a lady bieng very glamorous is the fact many men would not approach her as thinking maybe she out of theyre league,

but you always get a cheeky one :)
JohnsGirl  Female  Bedfordshire 28-Sep-2016 00:21 Message #4657192
I dont think there is such a thing as too glamorous. The person your meeting will be your type or he wont. You may dress up more but if you like each other shouldnt make a difference.

I think a lady should dress as she wants to. Not to suit someone she does not know. First meeting is you feeling comfortable in what your wearing. If they dont like your look your both wasting your time.
BunnyGirl  Female  Buckinghamshire 28-Sep-2016 10:02 Message #4657229
No one can be too glamorous.

If a person is good looking then no matter what they wear they will good in it.

You are glamorous or not cannot change that!

You have to take a person for whom they are!

As Paddy McGuinness would say on 'Take me out'

'No likey no lighty'
wonderoushen  Female  Gwynedd 28-Sep-2016 11:16 Message #4657235
Tabassium, I totally disagree with you, except about taking a person for who they are, I've seen plenty of good looking people who look terrible in some clothes, it maybe the worng cut or colour for them. I've seen people transformed by the right hairstyle and clothes, going from mutton dressed as lamb to good looking.

I think the older you get the more of whats on the inside shows on the outside, if you're a nasty person that will show, true beauty comes from within.
