This is going to sound stupid but:
Apparently people think that I'm really good-looking (don't see it myself, but whatever) and it's kinda making me uncomfortable. I have no idea how to react when a guy tells me that I'm "beautiful" (has happened a couple times, just said "Uh. Thanks?") and I'm sort of scared that other people view me the wrong way. I'm shy and I've heard from a couple people that they thought that I was just stuck-up, because I thought that I was better because of my looks or something. Please remember that all of this sounds completely insane to me! Really!
Recently one of my friends invited me to a party, but warned me not to take her crush away. And that he "wasn't my type" anyway. (According to her my type is "better looking and less dorky" or something like that.) I was very surprised that she could even THINK that I would do that to her! I mean, I've never had a boyfriend! Never even been kissed! I'm SO not that kind of person!
I don't know. Maybe I'm putting way too much thought into this. And I probably seem like some spoiled brat. But really, I'm not. I just need some kind of advice. How do I deal with all of this?
Thanks for reading!

I think it's cool that you just see yourself as a normal human being and don't put all that much emphasis on looks. I really do think our world is "beauty"-oriented, in that so many people seem to judge a person by what they look like. I know what it's like (even though I'm a guy), because I have friends who are jealous of me and insecure about themselves because they don't see themselves as being as good-looking as me. It can really cause a lot of trouble in relationships! Recently, I just ditched a "friend" of mine who was always jealous of me and started getting really nasty with me because of his jealousy. I have decided in the future, that, I'm going to try to find friends who see past my looks and who are not insecure or jealous of me and who like me for who I am, not what I look like. Personally, if I were you, I would try to find people to hang out with, too, that are not jealous or insecure, because if not, you could really get hurt! At any rate, I wish you luck. Just keep being yourself and don't worry about what other people think about you! :)0
