Make-up, make-up, make-up! My partner would probably take a lot longer to get ready to go out if he had to shave his legs and get his lip liner straight. There's a lot of hard work in being a girl sometimes, depending on your style of course. I also like to do different things with my hair and since I'm not very good with it, it takes a while. My partner just shoves his up in a ponytail. Sometimes he doesn't even bother to brush it first!

Women tend to be more concerned with their appearance than men. I'm not saying that men don't care if they look like slobs, but women care more about their apparel "matching", and when you wear all sorts of clothing, underwear, have lots of accessories to match too, and loads of makeup... it can take a while to get the look right. I, personally, tend to skick to jeans and a t-shirt, with a pony-tail, no makeup and boots, so it never takes me more than 5 minutes. My husband loves it, some mornings I even get dressed faster than him!

It's because girls love to look good.., and for us to look good.., We have to be extra careful with dressing ourselves and applying make up and fixing our hair.., We pick a dress., look at ourselves in the mirror and match it up with accessories and shoes and bags too.., If something does not match, we change it..,, and so on.., so you can barely imagine how complicated it is for us to look good for you guys..=)

I think this is actually true! Most of the women that I know take a lot more pride in the way they dress than their male partners do. That being said, my brother takes more time getting ready in the morning than I do. He can spend up to 45 minutes in the shower, whereas I would be in and out of the shower within about 10-15 minutes. And dried and dressed as well! There isn't as much expectation for men to look as good as women. If you think about it, men don't wear make up, they don't have to spen a lot of time doing their hair or anything- and it's that taking up the time!

Men clothes is either pants, shirts, and T-shirts. Only 3 options. While women have to choose between shirts, skirt, midi,pants,dress, and lots of other stuff. So, it can explain how hard for us just to pick which one to wear among those many options.

Because men dont have to wear shoes that marches their clothes and wear accessories that matched their eyes or something like that. Men also dont wear make up so I guess that's the reason why they really are faster in dressing.
