Why is it harder for good looking guys to know they are good looking, then good looking girls?

Anonymous
I am 20, and I just found out that I am considered good looking to girls. I was sitting in a room with some girls, and I asked them of who they thought was good looking in our friend group (to get an idea of what they thought a good looking guy looked like), and they all agreed that they thought I was really good looking. Up to that point I never once heard I was good looking (other then from my mom and family members), I didn't feel good looking, girls were never particularly obsessed with me, they didn't surround me or always come talk with me, I mean looking back it makes sense because a couple girls in high school tried to hook up with me at parties ( which I just thought was because they were sl*tty, but either way I am looking for a long term relationship anyway), but other then them not many girls really talked to me. I am not the most outgoing person (in fact I am horribly shy), so I was never out trying to pick up all kinds of girls, and I dont really talk much, but I never knew I was considered good looking. Meanwhile it seems like all the hot girls in high school and college knew they were good looking since middle school, and they have to hear it 10 times a day just to remind themselves. Even the girl I went to prom with (who liked me a lot) never once told me I was good looking, I just never knew, I always thought I wasn't very attractive because women didn't talk to me. Why is this?
