    This is going to be really hard to describe how

    I feel about my looks because most likely someone is going to say I am an attention *****. Ill just try to explain anyways. Have you ever read those romance books where the guy makes the girl feel beautiful? I want to make myself feel beautiful without the help of a guy. I'm...

    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.

    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 purchased a very mild cologne today by calvin

    klein and i apply just a little dab before i go to school on my chest and wrists. it's a very very subtle scent as compared to axe or perfumes or whatnot but just that one change has boosted my confidence so so so much.

    I don't know if it's right

    or wrong, but my boyfriend had wondering eyes. Despite me trying to hint off that I'm jealous, girls will be like “Am I attractive?” and he'll say yes and it kinda makes me feel mixed emotions. I'm not sure if it's bad if your boyfriend does that because it had happened so...

    A friend took a candid picture of me today

    and I think I look completely gross and unattractive. I feel so lost sometimes, and I can't go back to when I felt good about myself.

    It's been hard. I have everything I need to be

    happy. But there's always something about myself that I will never like. I don't like how heavy I am. I'm not fat, just thicker around the edges. My boyfriend loves me and thinks I'm sexy. I just want to feel what he feels. I want to convince myself that I'm sexy.
