    I often get asked why I'm single from my

    friends, co-workers, and family. Sometimes they even think I'm gay because they've never seen me with a woman or on a date. I dunno. I paid eight months on a dating website, match.com, sending messages to women daily and I have never gotten a reply. The only message I would...

    Often people look at outward appearance

    and judge but when they fail to see who that person really is through personality and attitude though being different, will often get trashed but the quality of that is it adds more realisation as to how better mature you are compared to them.... a better heart will always reap...

    Help. I got called a plain Jane my face is

    pretty but not like wow, my body is hot and my personality is a 10. Apparently I'm a 8 all together. A guy I like told me this and I looked up plain Jane and now I'm extremely upset. Should I be upset by this? Is being a plain Jane really bad? I just need answers.

    I mean I can take somewhat decent pictures of

    myself, but me in person is an entirely different story. My personality is just bad and I'm very introverted and socially awkward. I tend to get looked over and ignored, but when I don't, I always end up doing or saying something weird and off putting. I'm unattractive because I...

    How I Feel

     Sure, people have stopped calling me ugly.  Actually now, people compliment me. I had a guy say I was really attractive before but I feel that I am not attractive.

    Lost Night For Love

    This Ain't Nothing

    Let me short this story bitter. I'm dark skinned, with black dots as eyes, my hair is extremely curly that I used to get relaxers on it for 20 or some years, my big nose is annoying, my lips are thick and dry since I don't use lip gloss. I wear a size 16 and it's kinda difficult...

    One-time Okay-looking Guy, Now Not

    Back in the 80s - some of you might know this - I was in an adult film. Then I had my incident last year, and now my face is messed up a little. I color my hair to look younger and take very good care of my body (like the movie people told me long ago; habits rarely die), but I...

    Not even the least bit.

    I can't tell anyone that though, because they call me a liar, or think I'm begging for attention. But the truth is, I see nothing positive in the way I look. Nothing positive about my face, my body... Nothing.

    Personality Tells It All

    If you look at me I'm an average male with no build because I don't exercise a lot. All things being equal I'd be a 5 out of 10. Unfortunately, my personality is too intense and I drag myself down to a 2. It's not that I'm internally mean, I'm just too intense with my ideas.

    It's Not The End Of The World, But...

    I wouldn't call myself downright ugly, even though that is in the eye of a beholder, just unattractive. Aside from my slightly higher than average weight, my features are quite normal. It's lack of effort that truly separates me from other girls my age, and thus puts me to the...

    No Longer Desireable

    I used to be an okay-looking guy. I was always insecure about my appearance, so the only way I could feel better about myself was to have sex with a lot of women. I know that's a pathology. I was told I was good-looking, but I hated how I looked in the mirror. However, now there...

    I'm not ugly but I'm not attractive.

    I'm slightly under average. I'm attractive on the inside and that has to count for something. I should be with a blind person.

    The Mirror Doesn't Lie.. Does It?

    I look at myself in anything I can see my reflection in, but though I must look totally vain, it's mostly to scrutinize myself. People tell me I'm super pretty, ect, but I can't see it. I don't tell them I'm not or anything because if I do that I must be looking for compliments...

    What bothers me the most about feeling ugly or unattractive is the number of people that, once you tell them you're married or have a girlfriend, tell you you should stop worrying. After all, they say, SOMEONE finds you good-looking enough to want to be with. Ok, fine, but does...
