Sometimes I get so tired of it. You're never beautiful enough. Never smart enough. Never perfect enough.
No one expects the same things from guys, no one even thinks guys are dumb, ugly or imperfect.
Some of the smartest and prettiest girls feel all of the above, I assure you.
Sometimes I get tired of hearing I'm smart or I'm pretty. Sometimes I just want to hear I'm ugly and dumb. It's like a shield you can hide behind so that no one can see your real self

It feels to me like the expectations on guys are higher. Plenty of people thing guys are dumb all the time, in fact in things like tv ads, it's guys who are typically shown as being 'dumb'. And average guys are generally given the impression they are not very attractive... with nothing to console them but the impression that -most- guys are considered not very attractive. But it's not a great feeling.
The reality is that there are huge and complex and unobtainable ideals for both. How you internalize them depends on you.
In your case, you get praise and feel on a treadmill to maintain it, or that's all you are.
While guys get it for different factors, we can understand. TBH, in real life i'm -never- told i'm attractive so... that hurts. But i'm told i'm nice and a good provider and that... and it's... nice... but i want to be wanted as a man as well, not just a useful frigging object.0
