    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    The Life Of One Unattractive Teen.

    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...

    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 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.
