    I have this friend who is an attractive guy but he's always looking in the mirror picking out any flaws he can and he says he isn't attractive enough. Why is this?

    Depends on the guy, could be something small like low self esteem/self confidence or a big problem like self loathing or disorders like BDD (https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/body-dysmorphia/).
    As for the title question like 4/10, but I can fix many of my flaws so it's fine.

    I am fine with my face. I know I can't change it so I think positively, there's no point in finding faults that you can't fix normally. (Plastic surgery does not count, it is expensive.)

    Now if you asked someone else to give a rating for my face it would probably be low but it all depends on the person.

    Without makeup I'm a little unsatisfied because I have really dark circles which can't exactly be fixed and my eyes don't stand out that much. With concealer and mascara (and often much more e.g. eyeliner) I'm generally pretty satisfied. Of course there are things I'd ideally change like bigger lips, slimmer nose, longer eyelashes but because I'm mixed with a lot of things I like that I look a bit different. I don't know how well I'll age though, I don't think my features are striking enough.

    Yes, but why do people need these things? I mean not everyone likes whatever people are doing to their faces. If you do it for you then that is fine but if you do it to attract people then you are doing it all wrong. If people wouldn't go out with someone because of their face then that person is not for them.

    I’m satisfied because I don’t want to waste my time thinking negatively about my face/appearance. Idc if I look ugly or whatever to others. All praise belongs to Allah/God.

    I know. If you thought I was angrily writing a response to say your wrong or something I was not. I was just writing why I feel it is unnecessary to get plastic surgery. (Unless you really want to or if you have been a victim of some sort of attack or something that has damaged your face badly like acid or fire.)

    But you’re not ugly.
