    I do. I loathe myself. I look terrible. I don't know how, I reckon I look OK when I look at myself in the mirror but I look awful in photographs. My face somehow looks twice as big in photographs. I can't talk to people. I try, I try, I go mad trying. If I'm with a couple of people and someone says something funny, I try to think of whether I'd be able to say something like that. Also, if I happen to say something funny, I think about whether I'd be able to say that in front of someone else.
    I know , it sounds mad. But it's true. I'm very, very insecure, exceedingly ugly and also can't carry a conversation at all. I have no sense of humour and talk differently with different people. I have zero self-confidence. Can't attract girls to save my life.

    Sometimes this liberation helps. But yes, I do.

    I hate myself and every part of me. I seem to fail in everything I do.

    I'm a guy. How did you get over it? Are you also exceedingly ugly?

    I'm not exceedingly ugly but I bet you aren't either, not really =p But I do take a terrible terrible photo. The most unphotogenic person I have ever met in my life. I usually look like I'm giving birth. Solution: avoid cameras like the plague. Also get a camera and take pictures of /other/ people. That way you can capture the memories and you're not in any of em

    Well I realised that part of it was in my head and I'm not really as socially retarded as I thought I was. As in I can kind of hold a normal conversation with someone if I pay attention. And I may not have the same sense of humour as everyone else but I can make people laugh, even if it takes me a while to think of something to say. The rest I just embraced. Yeah I am socially awkward. I often can't hear people well or understand them. I drown in 'polite conversation' and end up gawping like a fish. I regularly "don't get the joke" but will laugh at something ridiculous. I still think just about everyone I meet is "better than me" in some way but I guess my self esteem has improved to the point where I'm OK with that.

    I sometimes think that if I met 'me' for the first time I wouldn't be friends with myself. But other people seem content to have me as a friend, so I guess that's their lookout.

    I recognise my good points but that doesn't stop the self-loathing.

    There is always some one uglier, less intelligent, less healthy, unfortunate or more depressed than us. So I tend to try and think positive, improve on what can be improved on and while ensuring a good level of appreciation for how lucky I am.

    Confidence is very attractive.

    Kinda. I'm a narcissist.

    I'm in love with myself, but it's unrequited.

    Oh come on Boss. Don't take that attitude m8. Look at yourself more positively, and try and rectify what you think's wrong with you

    Hate? That's a bit much? There's aspects of myself I dislike, but I try to change a little a day.
    Harsh reailty - Stop putting yourself down so much, happiness comes from within. If you continue to have this mentailty about yourself, you'll never be happy. Stop with the emo attitude, try to think positively and make the effort to change little-by-little e.g. Have a complete makeover - hair, clothes the lot. Force yourself to leave your comfort zone, communicate by saying anything that comes out of your head. Start a topic of discussion, don't 'think' to much when socialising, just go with it and have fun. I'm 99.9% sure you're not ugly; and I'm almost certain you're beautiful inside and out, and it's time for you to realise this.

    You're talking to a bunch of teenagers. We're all insecure! Most people get better when they're older though.

    I don't hate myself no. Some aspects of myself drive me insane because I do/say stupid things but that's just part of who I am. Nobody else cares so why should I. If other people do care then it's their problem not mine.
    I take hideous photos too, some people are just not photogenic.
    I used to hate myself a lot, but I have improved how I feel about myself hugely in the last few years. I'll be 25 next month, I think that definitely plays a part in it; you do care a lot less about what others think as you get older.
    I'm certain you're not as bad as you think you are anyway, hardly anyone is as ugly/stupid/repulsive as they believe themselves to be
