    Ambiguous About My Beauty

    I feel so much ambiguity. When I dress nice and put light makeup on, I get stared at and hit on to the point of discomfort. So 85% of the time I dress down, wear no makeup and mix in with the crowd. But feeling such a split is so strange to me. On one hand I love...

    I Don't Hate Being Beautiful, I Hate Being Alone.

    I was researching the downside of being beautiful and stumbled across this website. I would like to congratulate this initiative! It’s a kind of a taboo subject, as beauty is perceived as something 100% positive. Well... it’s not. I have to say that I was shocked with some...
