I think I'm (the opposite of pretty) but all my mates say I'm not. I hate being in photographs and try to avoid being in them. The only time I feel attractive is when I do my hair in the morning, I think I look OK. My best feature is my lips, red and full. My nose is slightly bigger that average, which makes my eyes appear small. I just feel so ugly when I'm around other people. I try to 'get a life' and forget about it, but it's hard being the quiet and not-so attractive one out of all my friends. :( It makes me feels like I'll never have a boyfriend... What should I do?
Most Helpful Guy
1) Hang out with uglier friends. (I'm kidding on that one)
2) I have some VERY beautiful female friends; A lot of them, I have to say, are stunning. A) I pick on them from time to time. so if it's like that, then perhaps it's not always as mean as it could come across. I'd like to think that everyone is aware of when I'm just teasing, but it may not be the case, so I try to watch how often I do it. B) Do you know what they do? Complain about their hair, complain about their teeth, complain that they look ugly in that picture... Now they could either just be fishing for compliments, or they could really be that insecure; most people (including the hotties) get a bit shy (guys too).
3) I'm working on trying to not say anything bad about myself. This is difficult for me, as I often joke about my appearance. Honestly, my looks do not get me through life any easier. Perhaps you could consider doing the same thing, and seeing how it goes. Don't put yourself down for 30 days. Try to avoid doing it even in your own head, but certainly try to not speak bad about yourself for 30 days. See if it works.
4) It could be much worse. Granted, you might think that it could be better, but try to look at it as a glass half full thing. and... there are benefits to being ugly. A) Less work; the pretty ones have to look pretty every time they go anywhere. B) Personality becomes more important, and you learn how to have personality earlier on. The pretty ones can do more skating through life; but when they get older, they NEED that personality; if someone's ugly, that may just give them the opportunity for a head start.
