    Maybe, maybe not. But I'm going to stick with my theory that a majority of the time an 18 year old wearing a bum eating dress while on a night out on the town ...has different motives than a 40 year old woman wearing short shorts and a singlet whole doing the gardening.
    - one is trying to attract a potential mate, the other isn't.

    So your theory is that when I was 20 I dressed to attract a partner, now I'm dressing for comfort?

    Lets just say my theories on why people dress how they do, are in quite a bit of conflict with your theories.

    See above posts where I clarified re: different fashion types.

    In saying the home and away production team hire fit young people and dress them in scantily clad clothes to attract hormonal young viewers. You don't have to agree.

    Lets just say the main thing I've learned in my advanced years (LOL) is the saying about assumptions.

    I can certainly say I make less generalisations and assume less things about people the more I've been in other people's shoes and gained more life experiences.

    .
    Not exactly but close. I'm saying the majority of the time when a young person dresses scantily they are trying to attract a mate. When an older person does it, it's most likely for comfort/purpose.- you may or may not fit in with the majority mentioned in my theory.

    I don't agree, and have seen no one else on this thread agree with that opinion.

    That just makes no sense.

    At 18 I dressed for comfort/I liked the style. I was engaged to DF.
    At 20 I dressed for comfort/I liked the style. I was engaged to DF.
    At 23 I dress for comfort/I like the style. I'm still engaged to DF.
    At 40 I imagine I'll still dress for comfort/because I like the style. I imagine I'll be married to DF.

    If you feel threatened by women dressed in short/tight clothes, that's not their fault, that's an issue with you and/or your relationship.
    I certainly am not trying to attract a partner. I have one. My dress sense has nothing to do with anyone but me and my comfort/likes.

    What really gets my goat about this thread is that not one person has commented or liked my extremely funny and witty post.

    it takes people like me at least 2 seconds to come up with something like that...and not even a like? Really? I think I'll have to chuck on my bikini to get some attention around here.

    By the way, it is normal to read and read a thread to see if you have had a like. And it is normal to be disappointed when it doesn't happen.

    go on.

    look back through the thread.


    i know you want to!

    I think in the context, she has come from the beach, in a beach dress, i don't see an issue.

    in fact if I had a body like that I would be rocking it every chance I had!

    I am not a fan of short shorts in some situations, like at a restaurant etc, but I personally take more offense to people wearing tights as trousers and being exposed to their camel toe!
