    A man should act like a man.Since you mention gender,I should say that a 16 year old can't act like a 50 year old,similarly men should not act like women.It's just common sense mate.
    implying masculinity and femininity aren't social constructs and that an old person can't behave like an average younger person

    I just gave an examle mate.Men have always behaved like men,even if you go back to the older times e.g the stoneages,men were the hunters,the ones who provided for their family,the ones who fought wild animals and dangers to protect their families,while the females cared for their childrens in their homes.Men were required to be tough,strong and dominating.Masculanity and femininity are not social constructs.Men have always acted like men and females have always acted like females.Society has become so sensitive that it won't see the facts and now ridiculous ideologies are coming out such as the birth of a thousand genders.I'm not saying that women can't be the earners or can't be tough,but there is a certain line between masculinity and femininity that should not be crossed.

    if masculinity and femininity aren't social constructs thet that would mean it's impossible for a woman to take on a job and for a man to take on the role of a career it would also mean that feral children shouldn't exist as they should automatically take on the roke of their gender regardless of being socialised or not. Not to mention it would also mean it is impossible for social change to occur and for their to be different cultures.

    Like I said,women can be the bread earners of the family and men can work at homes,but there is a certain line that should NOT be crossed between both the genders.Was it a social construct when men provided and hunted for their familes and were required to be tough in previous centuries starting from the stoneages?I think not! Todays society is delusional honestly,gender is biological,not socially constructed as in there will always be differences in ways in which a male and female dresses up and acts.There is a reason why men have stronger,taller and broader bodies while females are generally more petite.A study was done by Dr Gregg Johnson in which he concluded that,"males, among other things, are often more dominating, more goal and rule oriented, and have bodies and nervous systems that are built for long hours of physical toil. Women, on the other hand, demonstrate more care-giving behaviors, are more in touch with social dynamics, and have bodies that favor fat storage, which aids in pregnancy."If a person has a heart attack,would they rather be diagnosed based on symptoms typical to men, or those typical to women? Would they rather be prescribed male doses of meds or female doses?

    Because it's a developmental abnormality which seldom flatters more than it detracts and, as the OP is otherwise halfway decent-looking, would likely be worth his while to rectify.

    Just wondering cause I have an overbite and didn't think it had any impact on appearance when you're mouth is shut, and even still didn't think it had too much of an impact, but ty for explanation

    I think you're attractive but would look really great with a shorter back and sides. Top of your hair looks good though. You're attractive enough for your looks to never really be a deciding factor, it's more about confidence and personality. So if you dress well and come across as confident you can probably get most girls.

    Well, overbites naturally vary in severity; the OP's, while noticeable, is by no means extreme, and yours could be more innocuous still. However, whereas exposing the upper teeth and accentuating the top-lip can enhance feminine desirability, it's rarely so becoming of men.

    Lots of people are saying OP is average but I dont see it? I think he's quite a bit better looking than average? Maybe its because he's wearing normal clothes or something but if I think about it, I can't say that there are *loads* of guys where I live that are more attractive than him honestly... People are entitled to their opinions though.

    Well done for trying to boost your confidence and live your best life, You rock OP!

    You should probably consider changing some little things about your appearance if you don’t feel attractive of confident. This is what I usually do and it really helps. You could change your hairstyle or grow a beard or buy some new clothes. Anything that will make you feel more attractive. Good luck!

    Quick question - how attractive do you think putting a picture of yourself up for a bunch of randomers to validate is?

    I ask because that's sort of the core of the 'problem' so to speak. Your appearance is fine, nothing really stood out to me as either amazingly attractive or horrifically repellent but I'm not a woman nor gay so my opinion probably isn't worth that much - but the point I'm making is ugly people can pull amazing girlfriends/boyfriends with the right behaviour as a quick google search shows https://www.ranker.com/list/ugly-guy.../robert-wabash

    Basically do stuff to make you feel attractive, you see all these people with awful tattoos or severe body modifications and they have still got a girlfriend and it isn't because she's looking at their hugely stretched ear lobes and thinking to herself 'wow, I could totally store a wagon wheel in there if I wanted to. How sexy is that?!'. If you feel confident in yourself it'll show and therefore you'll be 'attractive' because people will be impressed by your personality.
