    I've been told so many times

    that I'm beautiful, it actually irritates me. What in the world do they see? I can look in a mirror and honestly say I think I'm ugly, because thats how I see myself. No one I have met has ever called me ugly, I've always been called pretty or cute but I don't understand what...

    I Know So.

    I'm an ugly person, inside and out. I hate it when people go, "Oh, you're so wonderful" and "Oh, you're so pretty," on these sites because it's such a blatant lie. You don't know me. You've never seen me. I'm actually offended that you think I'm idiotic enough to believe or be...

    Here I am thinking I'm attractive.

    .. And it's amazing how in one small conversation with my crush, she can make me feel as though I have dog **** smeared all over my face. See, it's **** like this that inspires me to take over the world someday.

    What defines you to be beautiful,

    if you ask a blind person some will say they don't know they can't see but some will say I don't know, I don't know you that well, if you cannot see a person then to them you're not ugly or beautiful

    Not really ugly but I just don't look

    that good... but that's just sometimes. Every one has this special thing that makes them so beautiful. There's also times that I feel so beautiful, maybe it's because of some people loving me even with my bad side. ??? ^^,)
