I'm 24 years old, and I still lack self confidence -- espeically when it comes to my apperance. It always upset me that I didn't look like the generic girl, or blossom like all the other girls I knew growing up. I always wished I was 5'10, big blue eyes, blonde hair, high cheek bones, and thin thin thin thin. Instead I was supposidly blessed with how I look. So, how did you gain confidence? How did you learn to accept your apperance?

You have to realize that there is no one standard for looks that everyone agrees on. What you described might be a media fueled version of pretty but it's not for everyone and I can name 100 examples that don't fit that mold.
While I generally think blond is good looking I still am most attracted to dark hair. Mysterious and intoxicating. Love dark hair.
Your attitude and smile are more than half your looks. Do that part right and you can make up for other perceived limitations. Be self conscious about it and don't smile and you are already putting yourself 50% behind.
It's your look. Own it. Don't worry about it so much. When you find someone who loves 'you' they will be intoxicated by your look.
In some ways you can be too pretty. Some of those girls are always wondering if people are in love with their looks or them. They sometimes lead pretty unhappy lives in the long run because for everyone - looks fade. If your relationship is built on looks it's tough to maintain long term.
I like your look. I'd just say ditch the lip ring. Makes me not want to kiss you and otherwise I'd see you and be thinking of finding some way to get my lips on those big pretty lips.
Have a great day!2
