sometimes I feel like above average looking and average looking people have the same life experiences, (by average, I don't mean ugly)...i mean it doesn't really make a difference being just attractive...you would need to be at least an 8 out of a 10 scale in looks to experience a tremendously different quality of life from normal average people...
so how do you people know if you're just average looking and above average looking? do more people of the opposite gender approach you? I mean, I've seen average janes and joes get approached all the time, too, so it's not like only attractive people get approached frequently...

First of all, you're speaking statistically. In the generally sense, we can say that Megan Fox is above average. I don't think she's ugly, but I don't find her attractive either. That's just my opinion, but it really doesn't count in the big picture.
Regardless of what you look like, there's someone out there that's going to find you totally hot. What percentage of people that find you totally hot could be used to determine if you are above average or not? But who really cares? If you've found someone that you want to be with and that person finds you hot, do you care what other people think?
The second part of your question pertains to being approached. This is little more difficult. People have perceptions. Sometimes people give off a vibe that other people perceive as unapproachable. I don't know if that's you, I'm just throwing that out there.
And lastly, I've heard that women who are really attractive can get into a situation where men are intimidated by them because they are so attractive, so they don't bother approaching them. Again, I'm not saying this is or isn't you, I'm just throwing that out there.

I think it's mainly a personal confidence difference;
People who are more attractive, tend to be approached more, given compliments more often, and just have a very confident sort of air about them. ( which is why some people who are above average in looks, can get a little cocky or conceited because of the excess attention.)
People who are more average, it can go either way; one day their confident and feeling sexy, the next day, eh not so much. They may get compliments here and there, and you get the feeling this person feels mediocre and isn't as confident about things sometimes.
I would rate myself about an 8.5; I have a really pretty face, nice body, nice boobs, butt etc, lol so yea, I would say we do know we are a little above average. I've been told how cute, pretty, adorable, etc, since 4th grade, by my friends and boys. I'm not trying to sound conceited here or anything, don't get me wrong. I always feel really confident, even when I wake up in the morning and my hair is all over the place, and even throwing on a pair of sweats and a loose t-shirt to do some shopping.
If I was say like a 4 or 5 on the hotness scale, maybe I wouldn't feel so hot until I was completely dolled up.
Plus, it's nice because I'm not worried about my own confidence, so I can easily pump up some body else.
So I believe we do pretty much have the same life, but I think the personal experience is what's different.

I do believe that some people are naturally a bit more attractive, but generally I find that it has WAY more to do with how people present themselves than anything else.
People who get flattering hair, makeup, clothes, and a social, confident personality get WAY more attention, even if they are not as good looking.
Take that up a notch to eating right for their body and working out, and it's like automatic hotness.
