    ok so i was just flicking through photos of a friend of mine and facebook, and one thought came into my head: she's so PRETTY! why can't i be more attractive? why can't i be taller, have nicer facial features and have dark hair?

    Why are some people naturally more attractive than others?

    I sometimes feel this. But then it just encourages me to make the best of what i am, instead of worrying about my insecurities and constantly comparing myself to others.

    That's life.

    Though... your friend might look through your pictures and have the same thought xD sometimes people are too hard on themselves.

    And don't forget, some people are actually just more photogenic! I know some people who actually come out prettier on camera than they are in reality :-/ and for some people, it goes the other way.

    be ugly, it's more individual. but not too ugly. this is why we have make-up.

    and most people feel like this sometimes, but your friend probably has her own insecurities. maybe you don't think it, but when she sees herself she might be horrified by her nose or paranoid about her hair or somthing... your harshest critic is always yourself.

    The most beautiful people you come across are, in my experience not the happiest.

    Yeah.

    It's a bit of a fallacy to say that pretty people aren't necessarily happy. Chances are on the whole that pretty people are on the whole happier than unnattractive people. As well as being more secure, and socially fulfilled. It's not true that you'll be happy simply by being pretty - but if you go from being ugly to attractive, the difference merely in the way people react to you is enough to change your life for the positive.

    In other words, try to make what you've got the best you can, but don't be too downbeat if you feel like it's a lost cause.

    No one is unattractive. You just need to learn how to have a personality more attractive than your looks. Besides, there will be guys who will absolutely find you attractive.

    i used to do this all the time, then i grew up, manned up and thought **** it i am attractive

    i have lovely light blue eyes and long lashes (i dont need to plaster on the mascara and use eye lash curlers), long dark hair (i dont need to use hair extensions or spend hours styling it because its naturally straight), i dont need to wear a **** load of make up to look attractive, i havw big tits so i dont need to pay for a boob job or fake it with chicken fillets and i shapely ass

    im wearing minimal make up in this one and i think i look attractive

    http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/g...A75279copy.jpg

    im wearing no make up at all in this one and once again i think i look attractive


    sure theres things about myself i would change, i have a birthmark on my forehead i would like rid of, a flabby gut and im only 5ft2 i would change all of those things in a heartbeat if i could but my point is you need to look at the positives, how do you know your mate isnt looking at pics of you thinking god i wish i had her eyes/smile/shiny hair

    I am a munter. So I upped my humour and draw attention to myself in good ways

    Just find your good features, and make sure you accentuate them (subtly!) more to people, whether it's looks or personality. Know your good qualities and make them stand out.
