No, not really. Sometimes you dress up for other people, but most of the time (for me, at least) you dress up for yourself. There are days I have no cares whether I look cute or not and then there are days when I feel like wearing flowery dresses with strappy sandals and curl my hair and put on makeup. But not all the time.
Sexual attraction doesn’t really have anything to do with romantic attraction. I can be romantically interested in someone without wanting to have sex with them. If I’m ever romantically attracted to someone, I can see myself dressing up for them every once in a while. For dates and things.
I almost never dress up. I hate putting on makeup and I hate having to shave the hair off my legs in order to wear shorts/skirts. (Don’t get me wrong. It’s nice and all. But I’d rather be doing other things.) And yet people still hit on me. So I’m not too worried about it. I’d rather them be attracted to my personality, as that’s all they’re gonna get. XD
Actually, I think me not wanting to dress up has more to do with how lazy I am as opposed to my sexual identity. A distant relation of mine identifies as asexual and she always looks super cute.
I’m ace and I just dress for me. I like looking nice. Some days I’m lazy, but a lot of the time I like putting on makeup and straightening my hair and stuff. :U It’s not a sexual or romantic thing all of the time.
Unless sexual people literally dress to attract partners at all times and I wasn’t aware until now… no wait my girlfriend is wearing sweats right now
I’m married to a guy who sees me in my pajamas and at my worst 99.9% of the time, and I still dress up quite frequently when I go out, just because I enjoy doing so.
I’m not trying to attract people. I’m not trying to appear more attractive to other people (and I, in fact, do a lot of things that people do not find conventionally “attractive”).
I just do what I want. Dressing up is fun. Looking the way you want to look inside your head is fun.
It’s the same reason (at least for me) that someone would dress up for Halloween or Mardi Gras or a cosplay.
I love finding things at thrift stores that remind me of characters that I like, but they also look damn good on me.
On that note, I own a blue suit jacket, now.
