today I was lamenting to my guy friends about how my little sister (age 16) is always getting guys and being called hot and sexy, while I (age 17) am always getting ignored or called ugly.
my friends said that I'm not really ugly but that I'm plain and boring. I don't wear makeup, my hair is it's natural color and texture (curly), and I wear jeans and t-shirts mostly. they said I look like the girl next door.
they said my sister looks slutty, and that's why she gets guys. she wears lots of eye makeup, her hair is straightened and dyed a mix of colors (mostly red and brown), and she wears tight, revealing clothes. but the reality is she isn't slutty. my parents won't even let her have a boy in her room or let her go to a boy's house unsupervised.
they said if I wanted to get guys I needed tighter clothes, new hair, and makeup. do I really have to go through all that trouble?

You don't have to turn yourself into a walking slut. But guys are visual. The more time you put into your look, the more attention you will get. A little makeup, maybe style your hair a bit, get some flattering tops... not only will you get more attention, but you will feel better about yourself as well. Look good feel good.
Personally, I put a lot of time and effort into maintaining my goatee, and when its all nice and trimmed I feel proud about it! Confident! And I have NEVER gotten a single complement or remark about my facial hair. Not even from girlfriends, they never notice but I do. So what I am saying is working on your appearance isn't just to attract boys, its also can make you feel accomplished as well.2
