I'm a person who is often told by random strangers that I look gorgeous, beautiful, pretty, cute, etc.
Thing is..I've never once had a guy approach me or ask me out. Thus, I've never had a boyfriend.
I feel like I'm hideous. I didn't used to feel this way. After years of being bullied, it's all I can see. It's usually older people that tell me I'm pretty. People my age don't even know I exist.
How do you get confidence? How do you feel pretty when you look in the mirror?

I saw an interesting point raised by a girl in your situation. She said that instead of giving every girl the illusion that they're attractive, they should be taught that their self-worth should not be based on physical beauty.
Just because guys aren't approaching you, doesn't mean you're not attractive. Not that you being attractive should define you. It's been said that guys only approach average girls because they assume more attractive girls are already taken.
You get confidence by knowing who you are and loving them. You may not be a model or a genius but you've accomplished everything in your life thus far despite those facts. Accept who you are and what you look like.1
