Most girls in my area dress wearing tight clothes that show their cleavage and wear high skirts or high shorts to show off their legs. To be honest, from my experience, women don't give us guys ANY help by dressing conservatively. It's just not something they do, not in this area at least. If they dress, it's either going to be skimpy or skin tight. That's just fashion these days. They show of cleavage, their abdomen, wear short shorts to show off the legs, or tight bottoms to show off the butt. I mean honestly, they must want us to look at them like that.

No. You look at the car and wish you could drive it for a few seconds and then you forget it. You don't obsess about it for hours afterwards and begin thinking of ways you can illegally drive it. It may be a dumb example but the same rule applies to girls. It's ok to admire a woman and think about how you would like to marry her or date her. However, it becomes a problem if you obsess about it and begin to fantasise about how you would like to have sex with her. Focus on real human relationships and don't just isolate sex and make it your sole aim. Women are so much more than objects to drool over.
I don't fantasize about sex with them, I just admire how beautiful their body is. And I don't obssess.
I thank God that I have a girlfriend who dresses pretty conservatively. It helps me out a lot.
Edit: Thabks for the responses, guys. I'm trying to stay away from sin and any helpful tips from fellow Christians is great...I mean we should support each other like this. So we can each follow Christ in the best way possible.
