    I wish I could be called attractive.

    I'm always referred to as "cute" like a puppy. Every girl wants to be my friend but no one wants to date me. It's because I'm "cute" which I understand. My mom says I will grow out of it and develop a more mature face. I just wish girls would think more things about me besides...

    This morning, a totally random,

    reasonably decent-looking stranger, pulled his car off the road to tell me that he found me attractive and ask whether I was "spoken for." *blush* It made my day. Still working toward believing it.

    Always Ugly

    I have never been one of the beautiful girls growing up. I used to be anorexic because I thought that would make me pretty. Until this year I never wanted to eat until the start of this past fall. I gave up and started pigging out. I gained almost 20 pounds since then and now I...

    I'm not really sure if I'm attractive

    or ugly..people say I am but I have never been asked out, no one has ever told me they had a crush on me, and I have never had a boyfriend in person. When I look in the mirror or at pictures of myself my face changes from ok or nice to bad and terribly ugly. I need help.

    Seems Impossible Compared To My Sisters

    There was a time when my self-esteem was low enough that I posted my picture online to show people why I only meet people online how ugly I am. One online friend agreed with me... the majority of other people don't. I guess it is hard to feel attractive when you sisters are...

    Wish I Was Gorgeous....

    I have always hated the way I look. I am 28 but look years younger and used to be a gymnast so have a boyish figure. I feel that this contributes to me looking less womanly and more childlike. I hate having no chest and am seriously considering a boob job. I have no photos of...

    Self Esteem At All Time Low

    I've been getting some really mean comments off

    my sister and her husband recently, and they just came back from visiting family in England where they tell me they've been discussing my appearance and laughing about it. Makes me want to hide myself under a duvet and never come out. -.-

    Well, generally I feel pretty good about myself

    and my body. However, on Friday I went to a football game and all of the girls, literally every single one, had on a truckload of makeup, a crop top and booty shorts... is that what they're called? Anyway, the guys were going cray cray over them. I was sitting by myself with a...

    I look at myself in the mirorr

    and wonder why can't I be pretty? It really sucks having to deal with stretch marks and bad acne. Some girls have everything so much easier.

    and cringe. I looks so bad and I wanna cry. But I have to live with this skin I am forced to live in. I just want to look.... Feel better.

    I want to feel attractive.

    Just for one day. Is that too much to ask? I want to feel wanted. I want to know what it feels like to have someone you have feelings for to like you back. I hate my life.

    I think that most people with any kind of

    unattractive all the time. I do have my moments of feeling beautiful. I was never a girl for wearing lots of makeup. It's just doesn't feel like my real skin, like I'm wearing a mask. Because I feel very attractive when I go to school. All the girls there, especially in my grade...
