    I never believe them. A girl once told me she thinks I look good. I told her I think she needs to get her eyes checked. Needless to say, she wasn't happy.

    It wasn't until my first relationship ended and i was single again that I thought I might be attractive. I think I'm average looking with a side of mystery.
