I was reading this article that said one way people overestimate themselves is by seeing themselves more attractive than they really are. I didn't think this was true because people seem to be quite modest when it comes to their looks and most people have insecurities and flaws they hate. So what do you think? Do you think people see themselves better looking than they really are?
And I also found it interesting how they asked a whole bunch of people how attractive they think they are. I mean who are these scientists to say the people aren't attractive? lol.

I will start by sayin: I think I am hot therefore I am hot. At the end of the day your confidence will sell you more than any subjective eye, much less some psedo-scientist who wrote in a magazine. Now before you write me off as a egomaniac read on please.
One thing I will never do, is admit I am less good looking than any other man (with exception of maybe adam levine). Cause it will give me an excuse for not approaching someone, ohh I think she/he is too good looking for me, she/he must be looking for x-type.
When you do this you have officially made your self a chump. You are trumping your self, you are placing a value on your self as if you are a Jack and she is a Queen and you need to be and Ace or King to have her. It makes no sense, one person may think your ugly another may think your beautiful, the gist is, don't start by assuming you are something or you have a certain "specific" value, cause it is always subjective.
If he/she doesn't like you, don't assume your ugly, that is their opinion. If she/he does like you, don't assume you are hot. That is just their opinion as well. As they say it is all in the eye of the beholder and if you want to sell your self ego will do a better job than anything else.
Currently I am dating a woman that is taller than me, she is blond, has a model like figure, she has the perfect curves. Beautiful green/blue eyes. Do you think I would be dating her if I thought of my self as inferior? No I wouldn't, guaranteed. Anyway whatever that is just my opinion. Hope it helps someone, if not, well ohh well.0
