    Naaaah. I know that feeling attractive all

    starts with the self, but certain things people have said & done has lead me to believe otherwise. The reactions I've gotten recently aren't exactly doing it for me. That's cool though. Hopefully there is someone that will.

    This Is Me..

    I don't feel pretty because I have acne and I have a little chub on my tummy and I just feel gross. I know there are a lot of girls out there who have much bigger flaws they deal with but I just can't help it. I feel disgusting about myself. I get complimented a lot but I can't...

    Not Beautiful

    Most of the time I don't feel beautiful. I think people would refer to me as "cute" instead and to me, that's the kind of word you would use for a baby or a child, not a fully grown adult. My mum always says that people she knows think I'm beautiful but I'm sure she's...

    view me as a good looking guy. They all think I'm just a nice guy. I guess one day we will all find the person right for us.

    I have been called many things in my life

    but seldom have I heard the word "beautiful" directed at me by anyone that didn't feel obligated to or by people just interested in taking advantage of me. As a teenager, I felt myself to be the walking definition of ugly and awkward; I had a bad case of acne, was rather...

    I've heard too many stories of girls feeling

    depressed because they weren't beautiful. They feel ugly because they keep comparing themselves to photoshopped models in magazines or they keep comparing themselves to thinner girls in there entourage. They dislike themselves because they're worried that they aren't as...

    Doesn't Matter What They Say

    I don't care how many men tell me I'm attractive, how much weight I gain or lose, how much plastic surgery I have . . . I don't think I will ever be at peace with my appearance. I scrutinize every feature, every extra pound.  Think about how I look in clothes, and how...

    I hate the way i look.  i hate that as i get older, i just gain weight.  i hate that my face decides to break out at the worst time.  I hate my nose, and the fact that my lower lip sticks out just a bit more than my top lip.  (from years of pouting i'm sure...

    I Just Dont Feel Good About Myself...

    Some days I feel pretty and I guess that makes me feel awesome. But a lot of the time I feel ugly and really down on myself. I just don't understand why I feel so badly about myself and I give myself no credit. I'm in college and it's really hard to be around really attractive...
