I'm 14 years old, and my height is about 156 cm and I weight about 50 kg. I've never been told that I look pretty as my normal self. I mean, I've been called pretty at parties and concerts and stuff when I'm wearing make-up and nice clothes, but I don't wear make-up to school and I never get called pretty. Most of my friends do get called pretty, eventhough they don't wear make-up either and I feel really bad about myself because I don't get called that. Does that mean people see me as ugly, or they just don't want to share their feelings about me or something? I get called lots of other things like adorable, friendly, kind, reliable but never pretty. I don't even get compliments. Like, with my other friends, some one always says, "Ooh, I love your eyes," or "Ooh, you're lips are so perfect," but I never get complimented on any of my features. The only one I've ever got at school is, "Your hair is so soft." Yeah, that's pretty pathetic. Does anyone have any advice on what I can do, and does anyone know why this happens to me?

Everyone thinks that they get complimented less than their friends. I'm kinda in the same boat as you. I get called cute and people talk about my hair constantly but it would be nice to hear "wow, you're really pretty. " unfortunately the thing is that girls your own age are reluctant to call other girls pretty because they feel insecure themselves. Also, guys so so rarely tell a girl she's got pretty eyes or a nice smile. It just doesn't happen. Ever notice that it's adults who hand out compliments to you? That's because they're not a timid teenage boy or an insecure teenage girl. You can't rely on others to feel beautiful. Just KNOW that you're beautiful okay? I know it's easier said than done but I'm 17 now and when I was your age my self esteem was negative two hundred. I used to think, and still do sometimes, that I'm ugly. But no one sees me that way. Honestly how many girls do you look at and think "she's just straight up ugly." Not many. Everyone has good things going for them. Find yours! And keep your head up.0
