I Wish I Was Better Looking

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 315 People

    I'm not horrible looking.

    ..but have always wanted to be this person who guys look twice at...but have never been that. I'm overweight, so I'm pretty much invisible to people. I just remember being in high school & all of these pretty girls made it look so effortless. But they were born with their...

    Wouldn't It Make Life So Much Easier?

    It seems to me that people who are physically very attractive have a big advantage in life. Others are drawn to them, want to be with them and want to win their approval. They're also more likely to be forgiven for their mistakes and their flaws. This is bound to give them more...

    However...

    I realize I can only be what I am and hope that's good enough. If they don't love me for that, then they can kiss my ***, cause they're not good enough to know me anyway.

    Not to Be Vain

    I'm not terrible looking, I've been told that I'm decent enough, but seeing guys like Rob Pattinson and Zach Effron drives me f*cking crazy! I mean, I don't want to say gorgeous...but come on! How the hell are guys like me supposed to stand a chance in this world when all of the...

    The Life Of One Unattractive Teen.

    For me being a sixteen year old girl. Looks are one of those things us teen girls worry about a lot. And, for me... I don't have the good looks. Well, In my eyes I don't. I find everything bad about me. Every flaw. I can't think of one good thing that I like about the way I look...

    My Story

    Not sure what I hope to get out of posting this story/rant online, but I'm sitting at work feeling miserable. So, here it goes. A lot of people always told me how good looking I was when I was younger (I'm 34 now) and that when I grew up I'd get all the girls, etc. However, I...

    I Know This Sounds Like B.s. But It's True

    I do wish I was better-looking, but not even for my own sake! I wish I was better-looking for the sake of others who have to look at me. Especially certain people who have to see me naked. I hate that they have to look at this whale.

    I Wish I Could Go To Prom

    I wish I could go to prom but, I don't think I deserve to because I'm not as beautiful as the girls at my school. I wish I were better looking and just a little skinny so I could fit into the perfect sheri hill or jovani dress. To be able to have that Cinderella moment that every...

    I Dont Think I Look Good

    I don't really know if I really look good or not, people say I do look good but I hate some of the pictures I take of myself sometimes, It just looks weird to me. Also how the world is obsessed with looks today, so I hate the world more. Also girls don't really find me good...

    But Really........doesn't Everybody

    I know people who wish they were taller, thinner, smaller, leaner, bigger, the list can go on forever........... What I try to keep in mind now, is no matter how much 'better looking' I get, there will ALWAYS be someone out there better than me. So why should I bend over...

    I Don't Enjoy Writing This Story

    But when I come across experiences such as these, I have to throw myself in, because It's true. I am very unhappy with my appearance. The best I can be is on the lower side of not unattractive. I have zero confidence in my looks which in turn gives me zero confidence with women...
