  • Several reasons. Maybe they weren't cute when they were younger and people were cruel to them so they grew up thinking they were defective.
    Or that they simply don't see their attractiveness

  • Sometimes it's difficult to figure out the truth. For example, I've noticed a lot of people will rate obviously attractive people lower than I feel like they should be and then they try to give less attractive people a higher rating to boost their self esteem. Sometimes it's difficult to see whether a compliment is actually genuine or not. A lot of people will compliment you just to get on your good side.

  • Insecurities. Usually stemming from parental or peer interactions as youths.

  • It's odd but this is the conclusion I have come to

    Attractive women are insecure and often think they are unattractive

    Unattractive women think they are attractive

    Attractive men either pride themselves on it or don't care

    Unattractive men are really insecure and convince themselves they are attractive

  • They must have been an ugly ducking when younger and made fun of for it, but later on grew into a swan without being aware of it because they're so use to being made fun of.

  • Good question. Many are bullied because of jealousy reasons so a lot grow up thinking their unattractive. Maybe, people haven't been approaching them so they think they look bad. Tons of reasons. Like me, so many people told me i was too dark when i was growing up (among other things) and it made me self-conscious. Now, a lot of people contradict that statement.
    Take care!

  • when I was 13, everyone called me ugly. guys and girls. my mom used to give me the most UGLIEST haircuts and I had no control of them either. so when the mean comments started I guess I believed them. and even now I'm insecure, i always feel like the ugliest girl in class. meanwhile guys stare at me left and right, some are even too scared to talk to me.

  • Society or their own mind has played a trick on them that they may not be making the cut somehow. Often, very attractive people think they are ugly and it's a bizarre irony I have yet to understand.

  • I'd say it's because people's perspectives are different. Even super hot people have issues with body image, sometimes even more than average people.

  • Well I'll go anonymous because I feel self - praise is kind of too cocky. I'm Asian and according to Asia's standard I'm considered very pretty. Sometimes I feel like I'm ugly because I feel like people always approach me and I've never faced rejection and always been loved because I'm good looks wise. Sometimes I'll put a lot of my mind on that one little pimple that came out of blue or you know that one day when your complexion looks dull and your crush meets and you're like shit I'm all about my good looks - I looked awful will my face value decrease? Will he stop loving me? Shallow but the truth. Too much pressure on looks :)

  • Because some attractive people were probably mingers when they were younger. As a result, they were often made fun of (which killed their confidence).

    When they get older, they grow into their features and become attractive (ever heard of late bloomers). However, they still carry that scar from being made fun of.

    This is why attractive people often need reassurance.

  • Because these people tend to compare themselves with other attractive people a lot ! And there are degrees of high attractiveness, for example when it comes to models who are actually at the top of the league of looks.

    Or they have a body dimorphic disorder which makes them imagine flaws they don't have in reality and therefore think they are ugly.

  • No matter how attractive you are, everyone has their "ugly" days. Its a self esteem thing people have when things aren't going their way.

  • If someone is really attractive and they know it then they might get a bit full of themselves, which can be unattractive. Perhaps some people are just trying to be humble about it.

  • In your eyes, you may think that someone is attractive. To them, they may think that they aren't. Like me for example, I don't consider myself to be attractive, but someone else on earth probably does.
