Who cares if your hair is not done??

Okay, since I joined the ranks of the unemployed I have managed to avoid make-up, combing my hair, and the outdoors in general. I do force myself out at least twice a week so I don't become a hermit. Today was one of those days and I must say...I clean up pretty good! I put a little effort into my appearance and I liked the result. I have a girlfriend that I wanted to visit while I was out and about today and she told me no. She said she didn't feel like getting cute and having visitors. I told her it was cool, but it stung a little. I thought we were friends, and therefore really accepted each other as is. She never has to get dressed up for me. I can understand just not being in the mood for company, but girlfriends are supposed to be able to look past that whole grooming thing to be able to hang out with one another. Am I wrong?

Oh this is really a tough one. First let me say that it shouldn't matter but then again we are women. I decided to take advantage of a buyout last year so, does it matter if my hair is done and whether or not my make up is on? Does it matter if I even get out of my pajamas all day? I thought that it wouldn't but even after a year later, I get up, put on makeup, do my hair and get dressed. I just don't feel right if I don't do it and I wouldn't consider going out or having anyone see me unless I feel that I look my best. That being said, if one of my friends called me and asked if she could visit, I would put on my makeup and do my hair and tell her to come over. I'd do it happily just so that I could spend some time with my friend.

Thank you for your response. And yes, if it had been the other way around I probably would have went into hyper-warp trying to make myself presentable for her visit. But even if I were in the height of my pajama glory I still would have let her come over.
