Damn Liars...

My family, friends, some guys, and even a lesbian or two has told me I'm pretty. Sometimes I see it and other times I think they're just humoring me.  Occasionally, it becomes really annoying. If I'm feeling self-conscious (most of the time) and someone is paying compliments...it's a knee-jerk reaction of mine to shoot them down. I realize it's not a charming quality, and I'm trying to stop.

I saw your photo and commented..Yes, you are pretty..Some people have burdens to bear..;-)

it's your life ! love is colorblind ! racism is stupid, <br />
human being are equal and love is uncondition !<br />
and gwen, i haven't hurt u yet right about bf stuff Lol ..<br />
what a silly me, if yes, I'm sorry in advanced ToT !

I don't think any intelligent person would understand.<br />

Okay, if you say so.

People choose to be stupid for reasons I still to this day try to understand.<br />
<br />
A nice guy will come along and ask you out, just give it time.

I'm sorry about that. I'll never understand it. People are people, and classifying by color is so ignorant.<br />
<br />
You're right and also very sweet. I shouldn't dwell on it.

Better than not being chosen because you looked white in a predominantly black neighborhood where racial tensions were moderate. <br />
You'll be asked out sweetie. Just try not to worry about it and focus on something happy and bright. a lot of guys are very intimidated with a pretty girl who is also smarter than the average girl.

I suppose it's just the fact that I haven't had a boyfriend yet. I have to go to school and see everyone just coupling off. It's annoying -- I'm pretty enough to be told but not to be asked out. Come on. Makes no damn sense.

What happened that made you think you weren't pretty?
