TOMBOYSPage 4 of 7    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)
I enjoy dressing up with the make up, hair etc. as much as the next woman....on the RIGHT OCCASION...

BUT....for everyday, my clothes are practical and other than mascara and some moisturizer and Lypsol, just don't have the patience for doing a full make-up that's not even supposed to LOOK like a full make- up and heels and skirts, are OUT of the question due to both back problems and the nature of my work.....lol

As far as getting down and dirty at a moment's notice , not a problem with that either...

I learned how to do most things for myself a LONG time ago, such as plumbing, some wiring, carpentry and construction as well as how to change a tire and do basic maintenance on my vehicle...(oil change, brakes, etc.)

But if my b/ f is a mechanic for example.... I am perfectly willing to step out of the way and let HIM have at it! LMAO

I' ve never been one of those ' girly girls'...

While OTHER girls were playing with Barbie, I was tackling a cross country course on a horse who outweighed me by about 1400lbs. Hell bent for leather, doing my level best to HANG ON for dear Life and maintain at least a semblance of control... Lol

I preferred catching frogs and snakes and tramping through the bush observing wildlife, to " playing wedding" ....

Funnily enough, never had a problem finding men who thought I was " feminine" enough....

And if I'm going to drive/ ride in a convertible,or a motorcycle well, the LAST thing I want is to be worrying about is what my HAIR looks like afterwards...LOL

I think for me the experience is more important than how I may LOOK while/ after having the experience....

If my man says: "let's go out to dinner," he expects & appreciates the 3-5 mins. I spend putting on a lipstick & running a comb thru my hair.


Three to run the comb through your hair is fine, but the 2 for the lipstick are not allowed. wink

^^MtnMan, I think TOMBOYS are awesome. There are a variety of people in the world, each as unique as snowflakes.


Oh absolutely, I agree, to each their own. I guess I could have been a little more specific in my post, LOVE long hair like yours!

Also prefer (not necessarily a deal breaker) curves to what some might call "athletic", I just callem skinny. grin

Nice response MtMan, I once dated a guy I nick-named Mountain Man & he taught me to target shoot- I was quite good at it (on reactive targets)-Maybe that qualifies me to have a spec of TomBoy in me, LOL?

Someone mentioned High Maintenance, Low maintenance & I say there is also a medium maintenance.

I had a friend, we cruised together a few times & I would never want to share a room w/ her...why? She was HIGH MAINTENANCE.

She didn't like the dinner table, had the maître De reassign us, no biggie. But then she didn't like that either & yammered about it too much IMO. I preferred the 1st table...

Before the cruise, she called me to ask me if she was allowed to pack a STEAMER to take on the cruise. WTF it was a vaca to relax, couldn't she pack knit clothing?

Then she went on & on about which outfits & 10 pairs of shoes on a 7 day & night cruise.

All the food was too hot, or too cold, she didn't like this or that...

I will never cruise w/ her ever again. SHE IS TOO HIGH MAINTENANCE.


Low maintenance to me, is a very passive person who allows themselves to be pushed around & has little to no standards in anything. (But then they whine afterwards) A passive-aggressive nitemare. Has nothing to do w/ makeup hair or clothes, just overall emotional functioning.

I strive for medium maintenance. I take my man for a medical procedure, I want to talk to the doctor or a qualified nurse BEFORE I DRIVE HIM HOME to get the scoop. No drama, but no doormat. What is he supposed to eat, when should he take meds, etc.

I like to groom myself, but not like a drag queen.

I'll be nice to strangers, but if they get obnoxious/rude to me or my loved ones, I let them have it. I have my back & his back too.

Guys, if you were rushed to the ER & you had a woman & she had to make a decision for you, etc. who do you want talking to the doctor on your behalf? The mousey doormat? The cray-cray drama queen, carrying on? Or the woman who is firm, yet reasonable?

And PS- don't go on a vaca or a cruise w/ women who take linen clothes & then want a steamer to get the wrinkles out...

Realize in most instances low maintenance may not function so well in a pinch.


My girlfriend is a tomboy and a geek and super low maintenance. Yet she also enjoys the idea of going to the Ballet and decking out, even buying new lingerie, a super awesome dress, new shoes, the works. And the day of the event, have a pedicure or even have her hair done.

IMO she's medium maintenance- she's flexible according to the occasion & the mood.

BlondAngel this is beautiful. And I agree with you. It's like the nice guy argument. But in the women's side. And what you said is right. A low maintenance woman will drown in a glass of water the moment the first difficulty arrives. So bravo for women that take the bull by the ho.... (cojones) and make it work.

Regardless, it made me daydream of a world where ALL women did not wear any make up. I think that would be awesome. It certainly would make for a more honest presentation to the interested party.


humans have been adorning their bodies since prehistoric times, dream on

why would low maintenance and no standards even be in the same sentence, are you suggesting they're
mutually inclusive? that's rather narrow minded, do you have an inability to see beyond your own set of
values? . . quickly reacting 'in a pinch' is by definition low maintenance and without drama

I love how the forums is filled with wise a sses that have to create arguments about absolutes.
In the context of the discussion Blonde introduced something in between high maintenance and low maintenance. That gray area in between. That is indeed a good point. And we can down in semantics, labels, variations of a label and what not. So I stand by what I said that the time.

Is my gf low maintenance? In the context of being simply a piece of furniture, hell no. What she does not like, she does not tolerate. Is she very easy going? Yes she is.

who the hell is arguing? i'm posting my rationals..
your quote of my partial post wasn't directed specifically at you, but since you felt the need to reply

i didn't touch on the grey area ( iffin u took the time to comprehend) what i find disagreeable is the absolutes blondie proposed, who the **** would ever suggest that someone who classifies themselves as low maintenance would also have no standards? that they're passive aggressive? followed up with nonsensical shit that low maintenance peeps 'in a pinch' couldn't be counted on, seriously, wtf

i think the only grey area in blondie's life is under that wig = now i'm being a wise ass, see how that
works dewd

A woman can have curves and still have an athletic body type. A slim, hour-glass shape wherein she's evenly proportioned on the top and bottom or slightly larger on the top can still be considered "curvy". I don't classify myself as "average" because that's usually taken to mean "overweight".

Also, just because a woman is physically active, it doesn't necessarily mean she has an athletic body type. A pear-shape is not an athletic body type.

There are as well, women that look like Tomboys are super high maintenance, they just happen to be in a different way.
One thing I have experience is that it's that girl that dolls up and looks like a million bucks, the one that doesn't mind getting all muddy and nasty in some sporting even, a run, or a bike race and changes right there in a parking lot.


Many high maintenance tomboys in my area. A lot of the "redneck" girls on POF in my region have guy stuff as interests, but they're often expensive hobbies: driving off road in ATVs and 4x4 trucks, shooting many rounds of ammunition. They often have photos to back up their "I can go from jeans and a t-shirt to a dress and heels".

It's a profile cliché to say you can be both a tomboy and a girly girl (or for a guy to say that's what he seeks), but my favorite girls tend to have good characteristics of both sides. In my case they're low maintenance on both sides. They have long hair (contrary to popular belief, long hair doesn't need huge amounts of time and products), a sweet voice, and some pretty things that aren't expensive. They don't wear makeup (or wear it but it's not obvious to me), they wear practical, comfortable shoes (almost never heels), and they dress for the occasion. An appropriate top and jeans for active outdoor activities such as creek walking. Pretty feminine outfits (easy to wash, no dry cleaning or ironing) when they're not in danger of being damaged.

It's more fun for me to do things where she behaves like a tomboy because our behavior is more like that of wild animals.

I realized like tomboys only, after i hung out with a friend of mines. She was a bi-tomboy, and was cool. I could be myself around her, and she was open to doing stuff. She also played football and tennis. She also played video games. Another thing that i liked is she dressed more masculine, which i later realized that to me its more attractive and i prefer that more. Its stands out to me, and looks nice. I would take a tomboy that dress more masculine over any other girl, any day. When i talk to friends about they look at me crazy. And one of my friends said i just like non stereotypical women, which i can believe i can agree with

Tomboy's with very cute, pretty, faces are a huge turn on to me. I've felt this way ever since seeing Some Kind of Wonderful and Mary Steward Masterson.

Here's the key though: Feminine faces, hence, a feminine woman underneath it all -- but in tomboy style. It cries out "I like watching the games. In fact, I'm into them just as much as you are. Let's go to BW3. No, I'm not going to take forever in the bathroom doing makeup. I'm going to call out to you about the scores. I don't mind going to a hole in the wall bar. I'm a woman (look at my face, my body in my jammies) -- but I can hang with the guys and there'll be no girlie-pressure thrown upon you."

As opposed to: A common "tomboy" who comes waltzing in the bar who, if you had to bet, you'd bet on her liking women, even though she doesn't look outwardly naturally masculine.

are you referring to ladyboys? some of them are very attractive and like the western man because he usually has more money to spend etc.

A lot of guys like tomboys. there are a few things we do look out for if we are going to date a tomboy. Does she act like a guy too much? This can make the question of sexual orientation and promiscuity. besides that the only things that really matter are factors like chemistry, intellect, emotion, compassion, sociability, drive and yes looks because the you do need to be attracted to each other. If you would question a guy about his relationship with a female friend you can expect the same in return or more so.

Come to think about it, I've known a handful of females who changed their ways after high school, perhaps b/c they went to college and roomed with women and either tried to fit in or just followed. Its fun to meet a lady who does what she wants. Shows confidence, and also makes her unique. That aside...I find that one type of woman who can attract men with different preferences for physical attractiveness, is the sensual woman. Some two decades ago I met a woman who was my type physically--voluptuous--olive skinned, and talked like Fran Dresser from the old TV show "the Nanny". Not very sexy, and not the prettiest face I've ever seen or the best eyes I had ever hoped to lose myself in. But the reactions she got from men was pretty universal. You didn't wonder what it would be like to have her on a date, or to have her cuddled up on a couch, or how she would dance in a club. you didn't wonder how good she would make you look at the office Christmas party.

All you thought of was how amazing she would be in bed.

Every few years since that day, I bump into her in unexpected places, don't see her again, and then years later we cross paths again, like I did on a walking path yesterday. I must have had 3 guys in those times come up to me after she left and ask for her name and phone number. The first time, I wondered WTF, and then the next times I realized she's the type guys lose their brains over. They won't think or spend rationally, she's like a walking image of what you think cocaine is like. she's the drug you'll do anything for, and probably enjoy that you did.

Granted, she does have a porn star body, the proverbial brick skithouse. But I've known women who have gotten men to say, "damn, I don't know what it is about her, she's not my type, but there's *something* about her that makes me want her." I call it sensuality. These women look like they have a healthy attitude towards sex. They are outgoing and friendly to strangers. They flirt. Likely make an amazing antipasto, and fudge brownies you'd eat until you explode. Wherever they go, you bet they live la viva dolce. They likely are noisy in bed, and make love fully with abandon. You don't even wonder how things would be outside the bedroom, you figure its all in the price of admission.

I'm a tomboy all the way...with a girly side as my header says.
I always had more male friends than female friends. I was more into wrenching on my Camero than going to the mall. I was invited to bachelor parties than babyshowers.
I rather liked my life as tomboy still do.
