    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...

    something to do with what size someone is

    I'm hideous on my period I'm short clumsy

    and awkward and I have a Bermuda triangle going on on my forehead as well as breaking out on my jawline. No one is interested in me or compliments me. I'm just a wallflower.

    I'm fat in all the wrong places,

    have no butt, awkward boobs, short dyed hair, too big lips, a long nose, small brown hazel and gold eyes, big ears, broad shoulders, lanky and tall, short and chubby fingers, and big feet. Nothing about that is attractive.

    I often get asked why I'm single from my

    So back in high school,

    a girl once told me that she was out of my league and that I should stop trying to talk to girls who are "pretty" like her. I actually believed her and just stopped talking to girls because I thought I had no chance with any of them. This feeling of depression somewhat stopped...

    All my life, I've felt not enough.

    I've always felt like the ugly duckling. I had an eating disorder in my teens. Dropped 50lbs from starving myself. Got pregnant at 17. Gave birth at 18. Her father left me. My bf cheated on me. I've been told my mother that I was ugly. I just can't seem to stop thinking ugly...

    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.

    I look like some garbage bag with a paper bag

    with a face. I just think of myself of some nerdy, geeky, idiot Otaku. And since I'm Asian, people think I'm not so attractive.

    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...

    A "taken" Mans Rant...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    ....I disagree! I think we're all attractive!

    Just not always to each other. If you are at school, and don't feel attractive. I'll bet you ANYTHING there's somebody in your year that fancies the pants off you!!!! They're probably too shy to just let you know it! Probably the same if you work in an environment where it's...

    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...

    Being cheated on and told no time

    after time got me to thinking. Then I realized no women flirt with me. Then I took a long look at myself in the mirror and took a deep breath. I didn't want to accept it. There's no denying it like it or not I'm unattractive.
