    How do you know if you're generally attractive or not? I'm not sure because I get pretty much no eye contact from girls during the day, while my friend sometimes does. I also get girls who clearly aren't interested in me, but i've also had a few really attractive girls (although rare) that come up to me on a night out. So do you tell?
    I don't think you can measure it by how much you get hit on... Girl at my old uni was fat as hell, ugly man face and was never without a boyfriend or some D. Friend of a friend is absolutely stunning and flawless and got to her 20s without ever having a boyfriend and ended up on Britain's next top model. I think there are many factors to attraction and a lot of the time people go for what's easier to pick up and maintain, or what seems familiar or safe for them.

    If you're very attractive you'd know. Below this everyone pretty much has to work for it and it's difficult to judge from reactions. If you are bold enough to post a photo you'd get a fair view on physical attractiveness. But remember personality is part of overall attractiveness.

    Attractiveness differs from one person to another. But I won't lie and say there isn't a universal standard of beauty. Usually you can "tell" if you are attractive if people tell you- (Best to take it from people you don't really know properly).

    If you hate them, maybe they hate you and call you ugly regardless of your looks.

    If not, then you might be 'ok' - attractive to some but not universally attractive

    I think deep down everyone knows roughly how attractive they are, as long as you're not blind and have access to a mirror or camera.

    She's still as beautiful as the first day I met her. We've been happily married for a few hours now.

    I think most people aren't particularly attractive or not attractive, most are just average but due to trying to make ugly people feel better, saying someone is 5/10 has now become insulting when it should really be the norm.

    1. You just know, if you have eyes

    2. It doesn't matter, either way, if some girls are attracted

    3. Male attractiveness can be a lot more subjective than the reverse proposition anyway
