How long do you keep up your hair maintenance into a LTR?

I know we all keep things tidy when we are trying to find someone but how long into a long term relationship do you keep everything as perfect as you did when you were single

When I'm single I actually care a lot less about it because I'm not really out there looking for someone and if I do happen to meet someone I'd hope that they wouldn't see it as a huge turn-off that I'm low maintenance. It's not like I let things get wild and crazy, but it's not something I become completely concerned with when there's no one around.

Case in point, I recently met someone after a while of being single and not caring if I was perfectly shaven and tidy. We got intimate and I was a little fuzzy all around but he didn't seem to care. Now that he's around I make a real effort for him and I always do when there's someone around to do it for.

Personally, I think it's sweet when someone makes an extra effort just for you. Not to mention, shaving at all is a pain in the ass.

And, as I lol at this, I always say that if you pull of a girl's pants for the first time and she was freshly shaven then you know she was expecting it.

Sometimes we let things get stubbly out of laziness. I always shave my legs, underarms and bikini line though no matter what. I can't stand to feel stubble on myself or it catch on my pjs, yuck.

I tend to forget about things like that unless I have to wear shorts or a tank top the next day. I don't mind getting fuzzy and he could care less. I try to keep up with trimming my pubes. I don't like looking like a werewolf.

Great response. I laughed at the last part.

I had a good shave the day before I met the person I am still with, but that wasn't because I was looking for anyone. I usually don't bother, and I wasn't about to start for him.

It depends on the time of year. I keep my underarms shaved all the time. However in the winter, I let my legs go a few days without shaving b/c I'm in pants and noone's going to see. I shave my bikini area about once a week so it does get a little stubbley in between shaves but the hubby doesn't say anything.

Part of what makes a long term relationship so satisfying to me is that after you're together for a while you just love each other regardless of the physical shell. Granted, that doesn't mean I think it's ok to stop taking care of yourself completely, or stop bathing, etc. But for us, it's nice to know that if we didn't take the time that day to shave or make things "just so" - we still love each other and want to connect sexually. There's something very comforting to me about that, and about knowing that it's equally true for both of us.


But mileage and all that.

i never keep stuff tidy just because i'm in a relationship or not.. i have recently started BARELY trimming though, and bleaching my hairs. it's fun, and i do it mostly for me.

i don't like shaven junk. it's weird to me.

I always keep my hair tidy and nice, it's not just for pleasing my partner, it makes myself feel good.

I'm a bit confused...Do you mean like doing your hair on your head, or shaving hair elsewhere?

I've been with my boyfriend for a year and a half, and I haven't let down on the maintenance yet. There have been some times where I was stubbly, but I always try my best to look nice and be freshly shaven when I go see him. He doesn't mind when I do have some stubble but I know he appreciates it any time I put in effort for him.

I keep it up but I do it for myself mostly. He says I could stop shaving everything and he'd still love me and find me attractive. I believe him.

I don't know how to answer this because my hair strategy has always been to keep a short, fluffy butch cut that doesn't even require a hairbrush. I wouldn't call anything I do to my hair "hair maintenance," whether or not I'm in a relationship.

Always, but I do it for me, not necessarily for my partners.

I stop shaving my legs every single time we have sex. Otherwise, I don't wear makeup anyway and am particularly honest with men I like.

I never really stopped but I'm not high maintenance so it's easy to keep up on.
