1) Do you mind if your partner alternates between two appearances with relative frequency? (e.g going from goatee to clean shave, going from brunette to blonde, etc)
My husband shaves his head randomly, then grows it out to a length where he can style it again, and then will shave again. It doesn’t bother me, and I like it when he lets me use the clippers on him!
2) If yes: are you straight forward in voicing your opinion to your partner?
I’ll tell him what I like, or if he messed up the styling (flat part due to gel or something), and I’ll definitely tell him when he needs a trim again, but that’s usually obvious because of how fuzzy his hair looks! I just let him know what I like, but it’s entirely up to him to do something about it. I expect the same from him. I am not offended when he tells me I should try a different hair cut, or need a trim, or my roots are showing too much.
3) How frequent do you argue with your partner about the way they dress/look?
Argue? Never. I’ll tell him what clothes I like most on him, and I’ll tell him which old, ratty t-shirts I hate (but he only wears them on the weekends when he knows we won’t be going out/seeing anyone!), and I’ll usually shop for clothes with him. He knows how to dress appropriately for whatever events/outings we go to, so while we discuss and share ideas about clothes, he doesn’t give me reason to be unhappy with what he wears (though I have stopped him from doing total faux-pas more than once!)
4) On a scale from 1 (not important) to 10 (very Important), how would you rate “looks” as an important aspect in your relationship?
That’s a bit of a tough one; it does matter that he doesn’t look awful (and that I don’t look awful either!), and we try and look good and wear clothes that fit us well when we can, but we aren’t very fashionable people and it isn’t something that takes a lot of our time. Maybe an 8?
