    People told me all throughout middle school I

    was ugly. But I go to highschool and all I get told is that I am beautiful. (My appearance didn't change at all. I just moved school districts.)

    My girlfriend tells me I am,

    but I can't help but feel like she's sorta obligated to say yes.. Although I have other past girlfriends say I was but again, I feel like they are obligated to or more influenced to since they are 'Inlove' with me..

    What even is attractiveness?

    It changes depending on where you're situated and the beauty standards of that particular area. If you consider yourself unattractive then just remember, in some place of the world, you meet someone's beauty standards. That's what I tell myself anyways haha 😂😂

    Are red heads attractive?

    In three years, I've dropped from a size 16 (AU) to size 8-10 (AU). So that's something.

    I have never felt beautiful.

    Ever. I suppose this comes from deep insecurity and self worth issues, because some people have said that I am pretty (even if it feels like they say that because, as my friends, they have to). I doubt anyone will ever love me because of how I look.

    Some days, when I wear makeup,

    some light foundation and fleeking of the eyebrows (cause its obvious), I feel fake. made up you know? but when I don't wear it, my skin is so oily and I'm self conscious. but at least my eyebrows look good??

    I would hope that I am at least average,

    but believe it or not no one has ever commented on my looks. I'll admit that I am not perfect but would be interested in hearing a few opinions.

    Not sure if I am. A lot of girls seems to like

    to trade pics with me a couple of times, they tell me I'm hot, and then all of a sudden it's like I never existed.

    but that's dumb. I'm a thick, curvy black girl and if guys don't like that, that's too bad for them

    But you know, it really doesn't matter to me.

    Besides, I really don't want to get married or have a girlfriend, so the less attractive I am, the better of I'll be.

    I've never looked at myself

    and hated my body, but I've never loved it either. I've never had someone interested in dating me and I've never kissed anyone, I know that doesn't mean I'm not attractive but it hasn't helped in my confidence.

    no girls ever compliment me,

    only boys do, and when they do its strictly only about my body which makes me very very insecure.

    I don't know. I don't think I am.

    I've got long brown hair in a pony-tail, haven't shaved in a while...I sort of look like Kahl Drogo from Game of Thrones but WAY less buff/confident. I've got large hands, pale skin, scars, and deep brown eyes and the voice of a tenor. But my girlfriend loves me, and I love her...

    but that's not what men seem to want they want sexy you know And I know that I'm just a cute girl. I'm fit with a good body and I'm not only cute but pretty but guys don't approach me like they do other girls and ask me out on dates or anything like that. I really don't know...

    "I'm not attractive naturally I'm just decent

    looking at the right angle, in the right light with the right makeup, once in a while on a good day." Never could describe to people if I thought I was attractive or not until I saw this on tumblr lol
