    This might seem like a stupid question, but I was wondering how people form their opinions of their own looks?

    Is it just based on what you see in the mirror, cos it can be quite difficult to tell what appeals to the other sex?
    Is it based on the other sex's reaction to you, cos again that can be quite difficult to gauge, easily misinterpreted.
    Is it based on how much attention you get from the opposite sex, cos that again can be quite misleading, especially as girls don't exactly seem to crowd the best-looking guys for attention, they don't really seem to care at all about looks.

    So how do people decide that they're fit/ugly?

    I once got wolf-whistled seven times, plus a thumbs up from a motorcyclist walking the ten minutes to my friend's house :cool:











    Although that might have had something to do with the fact I forgot to put any clothes on that day....

    If your mother continually reasures you that you're a "handsome boy" you are probably not.

    Nope.

    Girl wearing makeup = ugly girl creating a fake face.
    Girl not wearing makeup = natural beauty, man made products not required as there are no ugly traits to disguise.

    No, I really don't think that's true. For a start, it's always the guys who approach the girls in a club, never the other way around, and even then the guys don't always go for the fittest girls.

    But what if your Grandmother says it to you like mine did. Although think before you answer this because she is old and wise so she couldn't possibly be wrong.

    listen, when i go to clubs, i'll dance for a a bit, then chill, i get loads of looks, and i make a move, many girls tell me that they always see me with different girls in the clubs and some choose to not talk to me because they're probably the 10th number i'll get

    get drunk, stare at a picture of someone else for ages and chant "i am this person that is me" and then after about an hour and two bottles of vodka have a look at a picture of you and ask yourself "would i screw dat dude/grul"? if yes you probably mentally ill.

    The girls that get the most attention in clubs are the ones that look easy, and that's from guys that look like massive tools.

    I've had comments from people I've met recently... lots of compliments, so I can only guess that I must be at least alright looking if people are happy to compliment me on my looks.
