Work on being good enough for yourself. Once you find yourself good enough for yourself and really happy in your own being, you'll start not only being good enough for others but really lighting up any room you walk into!
كن جميلا تري الوجود جميلا
Inner beauty is truly reflected upon what people are attracted too. You are perfect being you, don't change a thing, because you being you is all someone will ever need. :)
I agree being comfortable in your own skin is the first step. And look! You're taking a step just by talking to others about your fears...a brave thing to do!
I have known plenty of empiricaly average looking people that were amazingly attractive people, all because of how they projected themselves. People that never lacked for a date, because of how attractive they were...and attractive DOES NOT equal good looking!
It's the shy part of yourself that you need to try to overcome. And it looks like you are making a start! Go girl!
sweetie first,if u arent confident with yourself you'll have no luck with the opposite sex if u feel not pretty make up for it in your wardrobe
You are probably more attractive than you realize. You don't have to look like Kim Kardashian (or other celebrities - ones that are genuine celebrities and not some reality tv personality) to be attractive to people. Being confident in yourself is attractive. Confidence is attractive. If you don't like your appearance then change it. I'm not saying that you should go out and have surgery. If you are underweight, then gain weight (to a healthy weight). If you are overweight, lose weight. Exercise and eat a healthy diet. If you don't like your hairstyle, change it. If you wear glasses and hate them, then get contacts or a different style. Don't do it for others, do it for yourself. If you feel good about the way that you look, then other people will see that.
You can always find ways to interact with people...join clubs at school, volunteer, etc. With the summer coming up, try to find things to do...go to a summer camp, get a job, volunteer, etc.
Your worth is not dependent on how "pretty" you are. Everyone is good enough for everyone.
