    Yeah I don't know why

    but when I get compliments or get told I look attractive I'm just like what? Who me?? And just giggle and blush like a little girl Hahah. I'm not saying I'm not confident in myself, I think I'm just normal :) but yeah I find it strange lol :P

    I've been told by many people

    that I'm pretty, but people also pick out a lot of my flaws. I guess because society is so judgmental I find it hard to believe when someone says I'm pretty..

    Im not an ugly girl but I'm no Beyoncé either.

    I have a weird body type with broad shoulders, mommy tummy and an *** that only a roach would be jealous of. So I can never fathom why people would find me attractive but I've learned to just say thank you and take it for what it is ::)

    I always feel upset when people compliment me

    because I feel like they don't genuinely mean it. Like they're saying it just to make me feel better about myself. Seeing as I found myself disgusting, I guess that's where it comes from.

    it's not that I think I'm unattractive I just

    don't have the features that my society considers attractive so when someone considers me attractive it's a big suprise to me

    No kidding! It's one thing

    when someone stares at me and I can get hints that they like me, but when she has the courage to tell me, that's something pretty awesome.

    I don't really consider myself to be attractive.

    So when someone comes up to me and tells me I'm a beautiful young lady or have wonderful eyes, or great hair, I don't really believe them. I think they're just trying to be nice.

    I never believe them.

    I consider myself an average Jane/Betty. So, when I'm told that I'm attractive, I just nod politely. I feel that they're saying it to be nice (lying) or they want/need something from me. Crazy, I know.

    It really takes me aback

    when someone says I'm attractive because I spent a majority of my school life being victim to taunts about my looks and my weight. I guess when you hear something enough times you start to believe it but I'm working on trying to internalise the compliments rather than the echo...

    Today me and a bunch of friends were talking,

    and i said i had to go to the mall to get new clothes so i could start looking good, and one of the guys said " Well i think you're really hot!" and the other boys nodded. That surprised me! I've been happy ever since:P It's just so nice to hear for a change:)

    Only reasons someone would call another

    attractive is either to get in your pants or say it to make the ugly person feel better

    Not that it happens often.

    There were 6 guys so far who told me they found me attractive. In 4 cases it was unwelcome and I felt somehow endangered. I don't mind being complimented, but love confessions and display of jealousy are something else. I'd rather be ignored completely than have to face...

    Like, if someone says "You're pretty,
