Guys, I broke up with my girlfriend 2 weeks ago, and starting a week after we broke up, she's started to wear a lot of make up (she hates make up, rarely wears more than foundation) and having her hair in complicated styles (I guess it's supposed to be attractive). Is this normal? She was my first real relationship, so I wouldn't know. Is she trying to get my attention, or should I dismiss it as her putting herself back on the market?

I'm pretty sure I'm past the point of no return as for a re-do on this relationship, so I just want the truth, not what you think I want to hear.

It's her way of dealing with the change. Believe me, even if you're the one breaking up with somebody, it still can be painful. I broke up with a girl once because she was annoying me and she was really clingy. I was happy that I was done with her but felt awful because of how she responded to that. Either way, she may just be trying a way to deal with being single now

I broke up with her. Well, that's what I consider it. I told her we needed to talk and she said okay and we talked for a bit, then it became clear she wasn't winning me over and I was going to leave her, so she said we should break up. No one's ever dumped her, I guess she wants to keep that going, I dunno.

I would hazard a guess that she is extremely self-conscious after the break-up and by making herself standout and gain attention from other, it makes her feel better about her self.

Nah, she's not that self-conscious, she knows how good she looks, and she's fine with the attention she gets. I'd give her a 6 or 7 out of 10 for looks.

Your breaking up with her could have made her second guess that.

That response pretty much sums up women.

It could be one of many things;

1. She wants you back badly and is trying to make herself look amazing so you'll realise what you're missing.

2. She doesn't want you back, but she's still feeling bitter about the breakup and wants you to regret letting her go. This is her trying to "win" the breakup, I guess.

3. If it was a long relationship, she's probably shocked to be single again after all this time and she feels she needs to step up her game to get back into dating new people.

4. She's trying to move on and there's someone else she's trying to impress.

5. She's trying too hard to make it seem like she's ok and that the breakup was for the better, but is actually still hurting.

6. She's gone through a big change by becoming single so she wants to make more changes to her lifestyle.

7. She genuinely just wanted to start wearing more make up for whatever reason, be it a suggestion from a friend or a tip from a magazine or something.

I don't know her, so I can't judge which reason it might be, it's up to you to decide which is more likely for her.

A few of those seem like they would be right, I can't tell because she's a bitch to me now, no matter what, but it seems very forced.
It's not 7 though, all of her friends hate make up, too, and she doesn't read girly magazines.
