I Want to Feel Attractive

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,001 People

    Not necessarily attractive,

    but proud of my body and healthy! I don't want to be skin and bones, but I would love to look in the mirror and see hard work staring back at me!

    It's been years since anyone was attracted to

    me. I keep myself healthy and dress well. I treat others as I wish to be treated. But I'm always overlooked as a companion or partner.

    Guys say you cute or whatever & I'm just like Oh. No that's just a fliter.

    I know it's a stupid thing to say I feel

    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...

    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.

    I know I'm not the prettiest girl in the world,

    but I do have days like why do I look like this or I get days where I feel beautiful. I have no idea what today will be like.

    Self Esteem At All Time Low

    i would give anything for someone to be attracted to me and would openly flirt with me. guess those days are gone. my wife doesn't seem too interested so maybe i am unremarkable.

    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 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...

    Just Part Of The Background

    I have never been attractive. In junior high, girls called me gross. In high school, they looked at me with disgust. In college, they didn't even look at me. As I got older, I faded more and more into the background of life. Now, I am just a piece of furniture, or maybe even...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Somedays Are Better Than Others

    Sometimes I feel like while I'm not crazy beautiful, I am "okay-looking". Being "okay-looking" is a good day. Then sometimes I really am disgusted with myself and how I look. And instead of trying to work-out more or take better care of myself I just kind of sleep or mope around...

    Sometimes I have these moments

    where I look in the mirror and say, "hey cutie are you single? Oh wait. You're me" but most of the time I feel really gross. My hair doesn't want to do anything stylish and my makeup seems plain, and all my clothes either seem too dressy or too bummy and there is no in between...

    Seems Impossible Compared To My Sisters
