I used to have poor self-esteem and body image problems, but after accepting my "flaws" as me and also looking after myself a bit more (clothes/grooming) I feel comfortable in myself and think that I look alright...definitely not a male model! but not ugly like I once thought. I also get more compliments/attention nowadays from girls (perhaps it's because my mind's in a better frame?) but I am wary of this turning me down the path of vanity and narcissism- traits I really deplore, but am aware that exist in everyone. What do you reckon? what is the healthy balance one should maintain?

Yes it's definitely healthy. Just don't fall into the trap where you stop trying to improve yourself. Women are always working on their looks, but men tend to get lazy when they think they're "good enough." Which leads to rejections, friend-zoning, and coming on this website complaining about not getting women and having no idea why. "It can't be looks" they claim, "I'm decent looking."
It's GREAT that you're comfortable in your skin. You should be. Just always work to improve yourself and you'll never find yourself failing. (The women will love you for it too).0
