    Im not trying to be arrogant- I dont go around telling people 'oh look at me look how amazing i am'. Im just confident with myself and how I look. It upsets me when people are scoffed at for liking the way they look (not saying youre doing that, just making a general statement). I find insecurity is romanticised too much nowadays.

    Naturally, probably not. Lots of girls in my opinion are 10/10 when they do their hair, put on nice clothes and do their makeup really well. I think 10/10 is something you really have to work for, hence why I said I only go to 10/10 when I do my makeup really well- fairly rare as Im lazy.
    I do agree with that line!

    Rather not have to deal with any messages - theres always the odd weirdo who starts messaging you constantly
    Busted :sad:

    Also again, emphasising anonymity.
    I don't think I could ever be anonymous online again - so much content out there now, all of it linked to various things that reveal my identity, and my style is quite 'unique' shall we say, so I couldn't hide my identity if I tried. Come at me bro

    I have actually been threatened in the past, on another forum, and also by slutwalk movement activists on Facebook, who have revealed/shared my identity/personal info. It phases me not, it's usually just sad/imbittered narky women who wouldn't dare attack me and I'm very philosophical about things that may or may not happen to me - believe strongly in free speech, and shall never be gagged :horse:

    I don’t know, I find the opposite – everyone in denial about being insecure, trying to be the picture of strength and stability, and yet virtually everyone has their insecurities. Indeed, this is no doubt a factor in the high, and growing, number of young males facing serious psychological difficulties

    Lots of girls in my opinion are 10/10 when they do their hair, put on nice clothes and do their makeup really well
    It’s possible you have relatively lax standards. 10/10 means perfection to most men, and many of us wouldn’t award it to more than a handful of girls in the world!

    I'm honestly a 2/10 in looks.

    However after an exhausting ritualistic fixing up with makeup, hair and styling I can just about stretch to a 4

    Why do you care so much about me posting a picture? What will that result in? How is it going to affect your life?

    See- youve been threatened and apparently abused online, and yet youre convincing me its ok to post a picture of myself online and nothing will happen? Ok sure.

    Nah I disagree with you about self-confidence being more romanticised than insecurity. Look at popular songs like 'What makes you beautiful' by 1d- theyre basically saying the fact that she doesnt know shes beautiful is what makes her beautiful, which is just wrong.
    Also, if a girl compliments herself or is confident about her appearance, people scoff and say things like 'youre not pretty get over yourself' or 'wow youre so vain', but if shes really insecure everyones like 'awww thats so cute' and 'darling its ok you're beautiful'. As Im not a guy, I cannot say whether it is the opposite for guys or not. But (espec. as I go to an all-girls school) I can see that being insecure is valued more than being confident in a girl

    Idk maybe I do have lax standards but I still stick by what I said. I get compliments a lot, people stare on the street and I like the way I look.

    The fate of humanity rests on this decision :gah:

    Milkybars on me! :bandit:

    :iiam:

    Naw, not trying to convince you of owt, t'was just an aside

    Nah I disagree with you about self-confidence being more romanticised than insecurity
    I'm not sure 'romanticised' is the world I would use, but society is now full of drones doing their best to look, think, and behave like the morons they idolise in the media :rolleyes:

    Look at popular songs like 'What makes you beautiful' by 1d- theyre basically saying the fact that she doesnt know shes beautiful is what makes her beautiful, which is just wrong
    Why do you think that is? It's because that crap sells to the billions of uglies sat at home munching on fudge, listening to their garbage music, and weeping into their pillows. It's not because insecurities are romanticised, it's because consumerism plays on them to milk such people of their monies :devil:

    Trust me, those little 1d punks wouldn't piss on an ugly girl if she were on fire :headfire:

    Also, if a girl compliments herself or is confident about her appearance, people scoff and say things like 'youre not pretty get over yourself' or 'wow youre so vain'
    Sure, making comments that betray a certain level of vanity/arrogance attracts scorn, but that doesn’t mean that people have romantic preconceptions about those with insecurities

    if shes really insecure everyones like 'awww thats so cute' and 'darling its ok you're beautiful'
    Sometimes, it depends on her nature e.g. people who are insecure and bitter not so much, but people who are insecure and bashful/apologetic/cute with it, more so – but that’s more about being nice to people and recognising their character, than it is about some weird fetish for insecurities per sae

    I go to an all-girls school
    Mate, all girls schools are not a representative sample of humanity! :facepalm2:

    I can see that being insecure is valued more than being confident in a girl
    Girls schools can be very catty indeed, and anyone who stands out and makes anyone else look relatively plain etc is likely to attract negative juju

    I get compliments a lot, people stare on the street and I like the way I look
    Congrats. Just don’t be yet another girl who allows that to interfere with her achieving her true potential :horse: (seen it happen too many times)

    Who's scale are we using.

    Because my 6 is like other people's 8/9.

    2 is unlucky...

    4 is average.

    6 is decent.

    8 is hot.

    10 is like... Can't cope.

    So on my scale, a 6 maybe.

    I don't think it matters because there is no such thing as a 10, everyone has a flaw
