    Hi!
    This seems a bit of a weird thing to be fussing about, but I thought I'd see what people think!
    My best friend has recetly signed up to a model agency, after she sent her pics to them. She is absolutly stunning, and I am happy for her that shes doing this, as its what she wants to do, and I really hope it does well for her.
    However, she has a very 'I'm pretty and I know it' kind of attitude, especially since this agency accepted her! She always goes on about how pretty she is, how everyone thinks shes pretty, everyone fancies her etc etc
    I'm not jealous of her (please dont think I am) in fact, I couldnt be more happy for her...but I have very low self confidence, especailly where looks are concerned (although, saying that, I wouldnt say I was ugly)
    Problem is, when she goes on about how pretty she is and stuff, it makes me feel even worse about myself!
    She is an amazing friend, and is always there for me. We can talk about anything and always have a laugh together!
    Its just that, that always gets to me!
    I feel really pathetic for fussing over something which is so small, and I feel like I shouldnt let it get to me, but I cant help it. I feel awful for letting it get to me, when shes such a good friend!!
    Help me...please!

    Aww. Though your friend seems ego-centric, I think its just a result of her self-confidence and she doesn't mean to make you feel bad about yourself.

    Maybe you should do some things to try and improve your confidence? Get your hair done, buy some new clothes, join a gym or something like that. :cool:

    you are insecure, i think is what you're trying to say

    stop looking at her like she's made of gold and has no faults. do yourself a favour and wear some clothes that make you look good, do something with your hair... anything. just treat yourself. make the most of the looks you have. it seems as though you think she's the queen of good looks and you're just doomed.

    Maybe she doesn't realise she's upsetting you, same time you are lucky to have a friend who is always there for you.

    these guys said you sound insecure, i think i will go with that. If i am you, i would just ignore when your friend is banging on how pretty she is. I always think looks is something no one can be arrogant about, because wow shes pretty but so wat hey she was born that way, it is 95% genes. from what you said, you are quite good looking too, so what is there to worry about? it is not like you are after the same guy or anything. even then, certain guys prefer certain type of girls. I personally detest arrogance, especially about looks. when girls does it, it make them less attractive. so dont worry about it. i know it is harder said than done, but i hope i have reassured you.

    hollyoaks indeed. i agree though. i've got friends who think they're gorgeous, and to be honest, they need to get over themselves.

    your insecurities are not her fault.

    But if its making you feel that bad talk to her about it. Maybe she can give you help in how to improve yourself

    Have you ever just considered switching-off whenever she mentions how pretty she is? Or even changed the subject?

    It doesn't sound like you're doing yourself any favours at all so get over it.
