    Terrible

    Tonight I'm going out for dinner and... I have some red marks on my chin because it has been so dry lately... and honestly if I could stay in the house I would, but I promised my friend I would go with him. I really feel like everyone will stare at my face because of this, and...

    IM So Mean

    I just discovered how truly vain I really am. Carly Simon could sing about me today.   I have never been vain, actually, I have always thought of myself as less than average or even plain and not much to look at.  If you look at the rest of my experience groups, you...

    I'm totally vain but not to the point

    where I'm arrogant about it. I just enjoy taking pride in myself and the way I look. Why do people shun it so much?

    Just A Bit Vain

    Yes I admit it I am. And I like getting attention and flirting. Sometimes if I slack off I'lll put on a few pounds (I love to cook and love good food and wine). When I do, I quickly get to a point where I hate the way I look and I diet and start working out again to get...

    I Will Get Over This!

    This serious case of vanity started up just a year ago when my father passed away. I keep acting as if everything revolves around me and pulling fits when someone denies something I say about myself. I constantly claim to be "stronger than most women" (yeah right) and...

    I'm Vain But It Doesn't Mean I'm Also Shallow.

    I was a very unattractive child. My own mother often told me how ugly I was. As I grew older, very thin with buck teeth and way too much body hair for a kid, I was teased at school and made to feel less than human because of my looks. Times changed, I developed, I learned about...

    I Can Be At Times

    It's not just about liking to see myself or listen to myself talk or enjoying the compliments I'm given (oh, do go on). There are many times when the things that I do are completely useless or even detrimental, but I do them anyway just because, especially because, someone tells...

    Is It Me?

    Is it because of something that I did or said -- or who I am -- that made my friend not talk to me any more? Or does it have nothing to do with me, and she is just busy. I can't help but feel it must have something to do with me. That is vanity, though, isn't it?
