Women more judgemental than Men on Looks,

Don't take it personally guys. Women don't expect men to be beautiful, by and large. But they do expect other women to be beautiful, on the other hand.
Sorry chaps, women only get dressed up to impress each other

Men left waiting for hours as their partners get ready for a big night out won’t be pleased.
Women apparently dress to impress other women.
A poll of 2,000 debunks the myth that they spend hours in front of a mirror on a Saturday night to impress men.
The truth is, two thirds are trying to encourage compliments from their peers.
Six out of ten women aged between 18 and 30 said they had their girlfriends in mind when they chose what to wear on a big night out.
And more than a quarter said the most genuine compliments they received came from women they don’t know – not men. Yesterday a spokesman for Simple skincare, which commissioned the report, said: ‘There is an assumption that women go all out to impress the opposite sex, but this research has revealed this isn’t always the case.
‘The fact that so many women care about what their peers think of their appearance is only natural.’
She added: ‘On the whole, women are much more in the know when it comes to clothes, make-up and style, so it’s not a surprise that girls go out to impress other women as opposed to men.’
Two thirds of women believe that men say they look good regardless of what they look like and just say it as standard, without thinking.
And 48 per cent of women polled actually prefer to get a compliment from a female stranger as opposed to a man.
More than half of women say they have never got themselves ‘dolled up’ purely to snare a man and 22 per cent claim a man’s opinion doesn’t matter to them at all.
