    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.

    I wanna feel pretty so bad.

    I always feel attractive

    when I wear something cute. I'm 5'2, I have a small waist but huge butt, I have short legs, and broad/wide shoulder. What will look good on me?

    I want to feel comfortable with my body.

    Bold about what I wear and not care what people think about my body.

    The most attractive quality in a woman is

    when you know she hasn't been with everybody and won't be with just anybody.

    Beauty Versus the Beholder

      I read CrippleCrow's story "Again" and I wanted to comment on both his post and one of Sunstone08's responses, but there were well over a hundred comments already. So I decided to use it as an opportunity to tell my own story..... If you're constantly told how...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    kind of person people want to be around. I want to make people laugh and smile the more. I want to be wanted for who I am.

    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.

    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...

    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'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. -.-

    I think that most people with any kind of

    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.

    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...
