Women can know each other for five minutes, and they know the other one’s favorite color, high school mascot, a mortal enemy in college, what kind of dress they wore to the prom and just a plethora of useless “send me an email” type information. It is amazing what you can learn about a woman, when you talk to her—especially if you listen.The current challenge we face is redefining ourselves within the context of previously rigid gender roles.

However, historically it has always been the woman’s role to be pretty. Letting your girlfriend know that you think she is pretty is important to her because society has taught women to be unduly concerned with their physical appearance. That suggests to me that we live in a society where a great deal of importance is placed on physical appearance.

For example, between January and March (2012) beauty sales increased 14% ($2,278,000,00) Four out of five women wear make-up according to TBC (ref below). Studies have shown that "more attractive people" are more successful careerwise. As a man of color, I have an issue with the Teutonic-based beauty standard, which tragically encourages beautiful black, brown, and dark-haired women to abandon their natural beauty to emulate white women, e.g., hair straightening products, weaves and blonde hair dyes.

The alpha males had the best food and the best shelter.

Therefore, females were attracted to the alpha males for survival reasons. The alpha males never displayed desperation because they were never desperate.

Of those women, the average time expenditure applying make-up is 20 minutes per day. Being in a relationship with a man that makes time to remind his girlfriend that she is beautiful (as all women are) can help to offset a youth-race-body type fixated cultural beauty standard that is deleterious.

You know what you find breathtakingly beautiful about her. If you do not let her know you appreciate her in this way, she may feel unappreciated, and go where she feels someone appreciates her physically. If you want to play in the sandbox, then play by the rules.

As long as you articulate that choice with honor and respect for yourself and others then it is fine. Everything men and women say and do is either, to give or receive love.

Understanding why we are, the way we are, empowers us to adapt evolutionary inclinations to our situations. How he or she chooses to express those needs is optional.

Sometimes it is referring to your communication skills. The many oxytocin receptors in women, compared to the few in men, and the excess of vasopressin receptors in men, creates a gender bias in women's and men's approach to relationships.
