I never really put effort into my appearance when i go to work since i work.I still made sure i look presentable but i never put on make up or anything like that.I work in a Nursing home.However,i have a crush someone at work so i decided wear make up when i worked on his floor last time .He noticed and told me that i looked good.It made me feel great for the whole day .It wasnt heavy make at all.It was just eye liner and mascara
I now buy my scrubs at more expensive store which sells more nicer and unique scrubs than the regular store i normally shop at.I now wear light make up such as powder fountation,mascara and lip gloss to work.Also i got my eye brows done and i now wear nicer neaty looking scrubs.It makes a difference in my appearance
In addition yesterday this lady at work was like
so you have boyfriend now eh
I smiled and asked why she said that.She then told me that i am now looking fresh and nice these days so i she thinks i have boyfriend or have been talking to new guy.The other lady who was also sitting with us agreed and said
yea something is up
I just laughed it off but now i am kind of worried that these ladies might figure out that its because i have crush on someone at work.Especially the guy i have a crush on might notice that i am now putting more effort when i work on his floor .I havent told anyone about my crush because i dont want the word to get back to him that i like him.I am shy and afraid of rejection
So is it really obvious if someone starts putting effort into their appearance that beforeIs it likely that my crush will notice this

I think those ladies just thought it was cute. I think your crush will probably just think, “dang! she’s looking good lately!” Most guys probably wouldn’t put all of that together, and if he does say something (like ask you about why you started wearing makeup, which i seriously doubt will happen), just be vague and light and say, “oh i’ve just been feeling really good about myself lately!”

You are overthinking it. Women constantly evolve their style and appearance. As the PP said, generally guys don’t notice it’s for them. As for the other ladies? Eh, Unless they see you acting different around him then they won’t think it’s for him to notice you.

barnes66: I don’t think he will. Im not saying this to be mean, but my husband hardly notices small changes that I do, and he’s my husband! But that doesn’t mean he won’t. I say just act like everything is normal. I change my style frequently enough that surprisingly many people don’t notice, especially the men in the office.
Just be normal and you’ll be fine. Those women won’t know who it is or who you like.

I don’t think you need to be embarrassed but if it gets awkward just say it was a New Years resolution to invest more in your clothes/makeup for work and that now you have gotten the new scrubs you’ve been putting it into effect.

Awww, cute that you’re making yourself feel good by dressing differently and that you have a crush! Great sign that he said you were looking good 😉 Good luck!

I honestly think that when you look nice and you know you look nice you tend to feel more confident.

barnes66: lol I’m like you, where I don’t ever wear any make up at work… and when I do everyone NOTICES it and wonders why. I think he may notice it, but it’s not like a big deal.

Just say yes you’re dating someone new. That will take the heat off your crush, it might even get his attention…. After a few weeks subtly drop hints that you “broke it off” and keep dressing nicely!

Don’t be embarrassed! Also, if anyone asks, just tell them you felt like a change and are feeling great I’m your own skin these days!

I don’t think you need to worry about this. I started wearing more make up, because I liked the way it looked on me. Two of my colleagues noticed and said I looked pretty. That was that.

barnes66: Bravo! Good for you! Hope your crush works up the courage to ask you on a date soon. On a related note, maybe there are other colleagues who have a crush on you now 🙂

Thanks:)i hope so too.However,i am not sure if he interested in me as he avoids eye contact with me when talking to me.I try to bump to him at work more often but then i freeze up and all i say is hi and he just says it back and nothing else.I am not sure if he is shy as well or not interested.Oh well if its meant to happen,it will happen

barnes66: How old are you? You sound like a high schooler. If you like this guy, ask him in a date.
