Have you ever broken off a romance because of someone’s appearance? Do you feel you need an extreme makeover before having sex with a new partner? And do you like who you are "au naturel," or is there always room for improvement — even if it means breaking the bank?

Now that real men admit to using moisturizer, and Botox shots have become as common to many women’s beauty routines as lip gloss, Elle and MSNBC.com teamed up to find out how current attitudes toward grooming are affecting our relationships.

Answer these and other questions below to tell us how exactly you are — or not — keeping up appearances. Results of the survey will be published on MSNBC in April.
