No matter how hard I try I still hate the way I look Watch

    For years I've been battling the mirror, and it's finally getting the better of me. I'm sick of getting close to girls, them showing interest (or even taking it further) then they see a 'hot' guy and **** off. I'm also sick of people making comments and faces behind my back. I'm a guy, but I just feel like crying out of frustration right now.

    I plan to get surgery in the summer if I can find a job, but even that won't do me that much good. Firstly, because my genes are **** and so there is only so much you polish a turd, secondly, if I were to get surgery then I won't have any money for uni.

    I'm at uni right now and we have like 2 doctors/councilors between 20,000+ students, so I can't even see anybody for counseling.

    It's even hard just to make friends when you're not good looking; I just can't deal with it anymore.

    Well those girls are idiots if they treat you that way. And well, everyone's beautiful in their own way aren't they? Well that's what you should think, 'cause self-hating probably isn't the way to go.

    I don't think I'm attractive, but that's life right? I can't change the way I look, so, just accept it and move on I guess. That's my theory

    And don't do surgery, that sounds awful. God made you the way you were and you should be proud of who you are

    Really i think you just have to try not to take things like that personally. and really, they probably only like the 'hot' guys for their looks and that's worse. if they're really that shallow you're better off not wasting your time on them and you'll find someone lovely who likes you for you

    cliché and a half i know, and it's hard to get used to but it's true

    and i agree, surgery isn't a good plan. see jocelyn van whatsit for further details.

    You can polish a turd all you like, but it's still a turd on the inside, mate.

    OP, you know when those girls who show an interest in you **** off when they see a 'hot guy'...yeah, that hot guy is me :wink2:

    Stop being so negative dude, if I can get girls with my absolute **** personality but drop dead gorgeous looks...then it's certainly possible for you to get them with an absolute **** look but a great personality.

    Oh wait, it doesn't work that way round :awesome:

    1. Anyone can make friends, and meet a partner, its not about how you look, its about how you feel and the way you present yourself.

    2. This isnt a battle with the mirror, its your mindset that you need to change, learning to accept yourself, whilst making the best of yourself is very valuable.

    If you were so unattractive these girls wouldn't be attracted to you at all. However, if you feel you're unattractive that can show over time, and put the girls off you. It sounds like all you need is a bit of faith in yourself and your looks. Someone that doesn't believe they are goodlooking enough for me would definitely lower their attractiveness to me, simply because I'd maybe think they were only with me because they couldn't get anybody else... I know that's my insecurities, but I think most people at least feel a little like this.
