    I've used to get called ugly by girls back when I was school and it still haunts me to this day even though it was so many years ago. I'm 22, never had a girlfriend, never done anything with a girl since I've always had my confidence knocked down through school and it won't let me forget. I used to get dry skin, acne, rashes, cold sores etc. Why do people feel the need to call others ugly? I thought back telling them it's what's the inside that counts. Us human can't help what we look like besides ugliness is what comes from the inside.

    I'm in a similar boat, was alright looking and popular when like 12/13 but then got fat, and was rejected etc. I'm 18 now and would say average weight. Anyways, look at this way. If you go to a bar and see a girl, unless you already know her you don't know anything about her past, and it's a two way streak, like a stranger doesn't know anything about you, so if you act like no girl is interested, then no girl will be. Gotta fake it til you make it with confidence...

    Yeah, understandable. But good thing is you've identified it. It relates to not being present... i.e. Your problem is your negative bad experience in the past is used as a benchmark for your mind to project in to the future what the likely outcome is for a given similar situation. This causes anxiety or fear or doubts.
