    I have NEVER been that cute guy every girl

    wants. I want to finally wear shorts and feel hot; not embarrassed... I need to lose 5 - 10 kg to be at a "normal" weight. I'm 17, 5'6 (short), okayish skin, blue eyes, brown hair (too long, but afraid to have it cut short cause of my big head), sort of hairy... Who else here...

    I feel like this all the time.

    I feel like no matter what I do I can't escape who I am. I try to change, to be the man I choose to be but always ends in me feeling ugly and stupid. Why is that?

    I  cover up when I go into public

    because I have social anxiety and am extremely self conscious of my face. I'm always wearing hoodies and covering up. I  hardly ever dress up out of fear that I somehow am going to look like a fool or not look pretty enough.I feel like people in my apt complex are spreading...

    so, I am about 5'2 and I'm 155 pounds.

    I don't feel pretty, ever. I used to be a swimmer, so I was tiny. Now that i'm in college and I don't play sports, I gain weight more than I am used to. I hate my body and the way I look. I want to be skinny again.

    who always puts herself down, never has anything nice to about who I'm. Doesn't feel part of anything. I like one guy I known him for five years and not until weeks ago I felt something but he probably like this one girl who has everything and guys like everything they don't...

    because i've never been in a relationship. through force of circumstance and a health dose of free will. i feel like no one has ever found me good looking enough to try to get to know me. does that make sense? also does anyone ever checks someone out to say, he's totally out of...

    Just One Little Word

    Hi, I was just turning thirteen last year when this happened. It scarred me for months and months. Stupid really, considering it was just one word. My friends and I had just sat down after a thrilling game of "steal-the-bag-and-hide-it". As you can tell, we were very original...

    I don't party or whatsoever because I feel it's not for me. I even don't attend our senior's night. But now when I'm feeling low I just bear in my mind that someday I'm gonna be a better person than I am now. Like Christina Aguilera's song - I am beautiful no matter what they...

    And it is really causing me to feel depressed.

    I have acne, my teeth are yellowing and I tend to be a little hairy (chin and mustache hair). I feel like less of a woman and it's just like I can't get into the groove of being happy and wanting to do things because I'm too focused on how hideous I am. I understand there are...

    All it takes is one person to call you ugly

    and then everyone else who said you're hot and attractive and sexy doesn't feel like they're being honest. For me it's a bit of both. Some call me ugly, some call me good looking. Honestly I don't think I'm good looking. So I tend to believe I'm ugly more than I'm good looking...

    Why.

    No matter what I do, how much makeup or clothes I buy, I always feel repulsive. Especially when I'm out with my best friend. I can forget about it sometimes, but its always lurking in the back of my mind... I probably sound paranoid, but I wouldn't be asking people online...

    I feel bad about saying this,

    Guys often show interest in me.

    They flirt and eventually tell me I'm pretty or whatever, but it doesn't feel genuine. I feel like most men will flirt with anyone with a vagina. For once, I just want to be told I'm beautiful by someone who actually truly means it. I feel insecure about so many things, and I...
