pretty is never cookie cutter, because no one looks the same. So if you are a blonde, tall, skinny, tanned godess than sure you are pretty to someone. Infact you may be beautiful to someone. Or if you are a short bod, black hair, glasses wearing, acne baring girl than to some one you are to pretty to look at. Sure pretty people get by easier sometimes with charm and good looks. But the ones that are the prettiest are those people who shine inward to outward. The people I respect are not the ones with toned thighs and floor legnth gold locks, they are the ones that assert themselves, believe in themselves, and show a great sense of humor.
Yeah guys stare, usually because a girl could be dressed scandously, have something on her face, or have a very pronoced feature ( a big nose, big eyes, pouty lips). And if people don't always tell you that you are pretty it happens to everyone. Sometimes people are jealus and won't compliment people, but your family is honest so ask them. But if you depend on people TELLING you or ensuring you that you are pretty than that is bad. Than people are controlling how you feel, think you are prettyy. You are the only person that matters.
