    Unpretty Too

    hello there..it feels good to be here reading your stories. It rings a bell. I am 20 and not a very pretty girl, actually, i would say, i am quite ugly. It would not be so bad if i was not constantly reminded of that. Although am in university, people around me are still pretty...

    Born Pretty Is Not A Life-long Advantage

    If you're pretty, life is easier for you, male or female, especially if you're young. But mostly for pretty girls. Otherwise, other kids will make fun of you, often out of fear of being made fun of, themselves. Being pretty has a very pecking-order aspect to it, and as long as...

    I think the world categorises too much about

    what 'beautiful' is. For example modelling. Models usually have to be skinny which I think is defeating the object to it, girls are beautiful whatever size they are if they are chubby, thin, short or tall. Popular magazines are promoting people to be skinny. I would love to hear...

    I don't think I'm unattractive,

    I just don't think that I'm attractive, I don't feel like I'm the type of person who grabs people's attention, so I'm kinda like a chair.. Or maybe a lamp.

    You're So Nice But...

    It's always the same thing. Guys and girls seem to agree that I'm a very generous and kind person. People always tell me how nice I am. And yet none of it matters, despite what our mothers tell us when we are little, because I'm still alone. 22. Never approached by a man. Never...

    I Wish

    I wish I just could think of myself as pretty. I think everybody is beautiful, hands down. We all are. No matter what. But I know that's a little different than making ourselves actually believe it. I have a humped back, always have. So my hair is always left down, otherwise you...

    that I'll never accomplish anything because I'm not pretty. I hate leaving the house, because I'm embarrassed of how I look. I just want to be pretty. Does anyone else feel this way? ):

    There's a saying that goes: "If a guy tells you

    that you are hot, he likes your body. If a guy tells you that you are pretty, he likes your face. If a guy tells you that you are beautiful, he likes your heart." I don't know whether or not this is true, but I do know that love is different for all who experience it.

    I was I was pretty enough to be desired.

    I was that someone could see behind my pain and see me. I wish that sex wasn't the only way men like to show love. I wish I was enough.

    I'm so insecure, it's awful.

    There are some days when I think hmm I actually look decent but then I look in the mirror and think eww. People always say I look cute, or pretty, but I hope I'll find some one who thinks I'm beautiful even though I no I'm not. Lol this whole things probably sounds stupid.
