    Not Sure If I Believe It

    I've been told on occasion that I am beautiful, and sometimes I feel beautiful, but mostly I just see my flaws. Usually if someone tells me I'm pretty, I don't really accept the compliment, but I point out the things that are wrong. I have noticed that when I go out I do...

    That I Was

    A guy I dated a few years back, he would constantly tell me I am beautiful. He was the first and last guy to tell me that. Sure I have had others tell me I look good or am pretty but he was the one and only who told me I was beautiful and that always meant the world to me.

    Regardless

    People tell me that sometimes or I just notice how some men stare when I pass by. I do have an issue with accepting compliments and believing it. Nonetheless, yes, it is flattering, but I don't want to depend on that to feel good about myself, to feel pretty. I would like to...

    I Still Can't Wrap My Mind Around It.

    Nearly every day since I lost weight, someone has made some sort of comment pertaining to my looks. Strangers will make it a point to tell me I'm pretty, and friends are always making some comment about some desirable trait I have. I don't hate the image in the mirror. I'm not...

    Me, Beautiful... Well, I Never...

    A few people have told me this, but I really struggle to grasp the concept. Alright, perhaps they simply mean that I am beautiful in my personality, because physically I would not find myself attractive. I'm awkwardly feminine when I bother to put a dress on, with a masculine...

    Yes.

    I was told this by a lot of guys mostly.  Girls seem jealous who call me a ***** and a ****.  Oh well, that is their issue.

    That Beautiful Moment...

    When someone extraordinarily beautiful comes up to you and says you're pretty. My brain would probably melt.

    Every Once In a While

    And Then Called a ****...Lovely

    My extended family likes to gossip. And apparently, I'm a 'hot topic'. How I found this out: A while back, I had gone with my grandmother to visit with my aunt. After we sat down and started chit-chatting, she turned to inform of what people were saying about me. I could hardly...
