  • I have very long features and was told at a very young age that I was ugly. Not just plain, but UGLY. The whole school, K-8, got on board on this one, so I figured they can't all be wrong. Unfortunately, it was a sort of "ugly duckling" syndrome, so when I finally transformed to a much more desirable-looking young lady, attracting the very male attentions of the very group of guys who initiated the insult, I was left confused and thinking that they were still making fun of me. And so, the long delicate features were accompanied by a biting sense of humor and an intellect that I had developed more than most girls had by my age "because I wasn't pretty" and because I "had a funny accent"... Now guys like the sort of "foreign" thing. Every once in a while a guy smiles and says I'm really off-beat, but since he sticks around from the first act to the grand finale I figure he's into what he sees. No harm, no foul.

    I guess it was a good thing for me in the end. While I struggled with miserably low self-esteem for a long time, at least I don't have an ego the size of a Kardashian mansion... I can laugh at myself and can help people see the light glimmering between the darkest shadows. It's just my thing.

  • There's no answer to this, and thinking about it and all the reasons why you're NOT beautiful make you completely ignore anything that does. This doesn't mean I don't spend half (or more) my life worrying and obsessing over the most pointless details, can I do, and we all do.

    But, it has always been friends, not attention that make me think (occasionally) all this worrying is a little bit stupid. The littlest things they say, from liking your hair to loving that slightly dolphin-esque laugh you hated,always makes my day.

    Embrace the faults because if we were all perfect we'd be templates, and they're boring till they're colored in...

  • I think, I'm average.

    Why can't guys just accept that some girls are fine with being average, regardless of what others would say.

    • i don't think you look average at all. what makes you think that you're average?

    • Because I am? - I've learned to accept that I am average.

  • guys criticize us a lot. even if we have one little flaw we are automatically ugly and they don't want to be near us. I've heard stuff like that from a lot of guys. they want flawless girls and nothing else.

  • Because most girls are average. Why does everyone have to think they're beautiful? There's nothing wrong with accepting reality if it really is such. "Everyone is beautiful in their own way" is the stupidest thing ever.

    Anyway, to answer the question, why don't I think I'm beautiful? Because according to popular opinion I am considered ugly and I've never even had a guy be somewhat interested in me. That's not having low confidence or self esteem. That's called being self-aware.
