    It seems most people consider themselves 6/7 thats saying its above average is average is 5 which is good. Modesty is a great quality I picked 7 too so most people think the same as me about there looks. Now I'm just left questioning my individuality

    Bit of an underestimation, no?
    :p: Like I said, I have my good and bad days like everyone else, but I'll take that as a compliment

    Interesting that the poll results are exactly as I expected them to be. A hump shape slightly skewed towards the positive as a majority of humans always tend to regard themselves as above average, despite that being mathematically impossible.

    That is quite an interesting observation :yep: didn't notice the skewness until you mentioned it

    4-8 depending on how much sleep I've had, how my skin is looking and how much effort I've put in. 8 would be all dressed up, fake tanned and false eyelashed and having a good hair day. Not exactly my natural self :P

    I'd give myself a 6, I'm certainly above average looking but I've seen more attractive people than myself for sure. Although I'm thin and have a relatively nice body there are still areas I could tone or wish were a little different. I suppose we all have things about ourselves that we don't like though! I'm just not keen on my thighs, would like slightly bigger boobs and straighter/whiter teeth.

    I don't feel very confident without makeup, but once I have done some makeup, nice clean hair and decent clothes... then I am happy! I also go to the gym most mornings and try to eat healthily, but not obsessively so.

    I think everyone has things they like and things they would rather change about themselves, but I think the most important thing is to be confident, make the most of what you DO have...and work on any area you are unhappy with!

    We can't all be super hot models and some people will always be more naturally attractive than others, they are simply lucky, but at the same time, very few people are genuinly ugly and most people can look better with some effort, whether it is makeup, diet, exercise, clothing or a combination. I think people have to accept (or learn!) that not everyone comes in 'one size' or with 'one look'. People are different.

    Comparing yourself to magazines and celebrities is foolish, as they are mostly edited or on unrealistic fitness regimes etc...and with personal trainers/makeup artists/stylists/hair stylists, I think anyone could look more amazing.

    I think it is about taking good care of yourself, putting in a bit of effort and being happy!
