Ok, so I was just reading the recent poll from guys on the site about what attracts them most. I must say I am a little on edge about the results. I have always been praised for being a beautiful woman and girl. My boyfriends tells me all the time that I am VERY attractive, more than almost any woman he has ever met because of both my external beauty and because of my internal beauty. I have blue eyes, about 5'8", medium brown (w/ lighter tones) curly hair, I am not a size 0 more like an 8-10 on average, although I wear a size 4 dress because I am so small around my waist and chest area. I have a very flat fit stomach but a little more behind, I wear a size 32AA (guys this is smaller than an A). Now according to the review I am not attractive! However, all I am told by people is that I am really cute and attractive. I am not trying to boast but I have men ask me out daily so I know its not just my family and boyfriend of a year and a half that tell me to make me feel better! I feel a little funny about this subject! What's wrong with me that according to you guys I am not attractive! >? I feel like I look VERY healthy. I work out on a daily basis (i tore my ACL so its tough to work out a lot), I love myself and other people, I have always achieved excellent grades, I am an athlete, I believe I am a good person and even though this question doesn't look so I am very self-less often! So guys (and girls if you wish), what is wrong with me that I am considered unattractive?

There are 2 problems here first when you ask any one what is attractive in general they will describe this idealistic form of beauty that society as a whole has set as a standard, this is the same standard that most women will strive to get. The problem with that is this is only one aspect of beauty that women can achieve. But there are all sorts of combinations of traits that can achieve "perfect" beauty. You have found what works for your body type and you should be very proud. The second problem is with you, stop comparing your beauty to different body types. And just because you have a different body type than that of the "standard" beauty doesn't mean that you are not attractive. You have your body type and have found out how to achieve its beauty.
In my opinion every woman has her own type of beauty and by finding out what traits to accentuate (bring out) she can achieve her own "perfect" beauty. I love women they are all beautiful and they each have their own beauty no one woman is more beautiful that the other as long as they learn to be okay with who they are and use what they have instead of trying to change to make up for what they think they don't.
I think is horrible that women try to change themselves to look like this "idealistic" beauty that society has set that in real life doesn't look all that good.
The key to true beauty is to be okay with your body and what you do have to make your outer appearance beautiful and to mentally know that you have your own beauty and you look good in your own way
