I was the ugly duckling of the family and I never received positive reinforcements from anyone in my life. I hated looking at myself in the mirror. Females in my life were crtical about my looks. When I was 18 a boy in my school had a massive crush on me which took me by surprise. He didn't even know me but I knew he was attracted to me because of they way he used to stare at me from across the room.
I had started to feel better about myself and it was one of the reasons why I started to indulge in self help books. I thought about all those girls who thought I was ugly and thought to myself that may be they were like that because it is in girls nature to nit pick and overly analytical when it came to judging another girls looks.
As I started to feel better about myself I noticed a few guys paying attention to me when I was in public which helped my self esteem further.
Before I joined this site I thought only girls were judgmental and I never knew that guys were also very critical and had a rating system.
I was speaking to a guy recently and he ended up telling me that I was average looking. That hit me harder than I thought. I started reminiscing about my past and how I ugly I felt back then.
My insecurity led me to post my pic online for it to be rated and no doubt people were very mean.
I was spurred on to ask this question
and the answers blew me away. I will always be seen as average.
so I guess I am average but I am having a hard time dealing with it. So help would be appreciated.

LOL. Don't take this website seriously. If you asked on AskMen(on reddit) you'd get different answers. Believe me, girlsaskguys is not exactly the best internet community out there. Far from it.2
