Most Helpful Girl
I'll think HE thinks I'm beautiful, but people rarely think they're pretty just because someone told them they were. It usually has to come from inside them, a confidence.
I had a weight problem my entire life until finally losing the weight about 2-3 years ago... so my self-image is a little warped. And I know tons of people whose self-image is warped.
So if a boyfriend or man says I'm beautiful, I appreciate the compliment and recognize that THEY think I'm beautiful, but it usually doesn't affect the image I see in the mirror.
