    Moving to London and having the same accent as everybody else certainly wouldn't make you MORE attractive.

    It would make me LESS attractive if I had the Glaswegian accent, which essentially ties me to being from that awful city.

    I'm gonna be honest - no one identifies your accent... maybe other Scottish people.

    If I heard you talking i'd be like 'Oh a Scottish dude' not 'BY GOD! He's Glaswegian, I bet shoots heroin in his big toe and beats foxes to death with bottle of buckfast.'

    I don't want to be identified as Scottish either. I would rather have nothing to do with the country except for my family. I don't think it is attractive personally.
    When asked my nationality, I would call myself British, not Scottish.

    It’s really sad that you are not accepting your heritage...You should be proud of it, not ashamed. And what’s worse, you do all this for the approval of other people...strangers who don’t give a damn.

    Go to the gym of course, start doing loads of cardio and some weight training, after you lose a good amount of fat start focusing on the weight training. As for good looking, start taking care of your skin (get those spots under control, keep facial hair tidy or clean and just use products that'll make you look refereshed and give your face that glow, no one likes a dull face!), get a good haircut (or dont get one, that usually works for me! big hair can e attractive if you can style it right but do keep it tidy), wear nice clothes, smell nice, always smile, work on your personality, start being charasmatic and just be a positive force!

    How you channel yourself is also important, you could look amazing but come across as weird, dumb, ignorant, etc etc. When people say be confident, they often assume it just means not being awkward and being out there but being confident is all about being comfortble in yourself. Someone who forces confidence but is out there won't come off as pleasent but someone who might be a little awkward because they're introverted will be attractive if they embrace that. So be comfortable and embrace yourself, dont try and be something you're not - thats the key to confidence.

    There's not really anything about Glasgow to be proud of. I was on vacation last summer on a Caribbean cruise and the Scottish folks working on there recognized where I was from straight away. It was kind of them to talk to me, but I don't want to identify as Scottish as I don't feel it is a good thing. England is better.

    I feel really sorry for you. Hopefully you’ll mature one day and be proud of who you are. You sound pretty judgemental and shallow right now.

    Don't feel sorry for me, I've always been like that.

    I want to work onboard cruise ships in my career, and certainly don't want to be looked at as the "Scottish guy".

    What’s wrong with being the Scottish guy though? Lol. I’m not even Scottish so it’s not like I’m being biased here. And please don’t say something like “I’d rather be English” cause you’re not and it wouldn’t be better than being Scottish.

    Being "Scottish", I feel a bit inferior to English people. Plus, I don't like Scotland as a place. I have always felt more attachment to England, particularly London. English accents are easier on the ears than Scottish ones, and I just don't want people to identify me as the "Scottish guy" because it isn't a country which I want to identify as being from. It is simply the country where I have been born and raised. That's all it means to me. I feel like I can't be anything that I want for as long as the Glaswegian label is attached to me.

    My thoughts are to limit junk food intake to 1 item per day, and for select days in the week, to cut down to 2 meals per day. In addition, I am getting off the train one station early and walking a bit further to get to school.
    I wouldn’t recommend cutting down to two meals a day; research shows that it’s healthier to have lots of small meals, so don’t avoid snacking/multiple meals, just change what you’re eating. The one junk item a day rule will help though! Perhaps give yourself a cheat day rather than monitoring every day though, perhaps every Saturday. Then you won’t miss the food so much and are more likely to stick with the new routine.

    I also recommend you get creative in the kitchen; if you understand food and cooking then you’ll have an easier time keeping a varied diet and that will keep things more interesting.

    I’d suggest some small steps to start with might be things like substituting white bread for brown, swap out some of your pasta for whole meal, introduce a side-salad to replace some of each meal etc.

    I don't really cook, so I can't necessarily control what I am given, but thanks for your other tips. I think the 1 junk food a day rule might be a decent solution, and avoiding snacking between meals.

    You don’t cook... so give it a go? Start simple with pasta, beans on toast and gradually work your way up. Maybe it’s not for you but you might also find you love it! Knowing my food in terms of cooking reassures me that I know what I’m eating, and it can work out a lot cheaper as well!

    I might sound as if I am trying to be something that I am not, but losing my Scottishness would make me very happy. If in 5 years, people can't tell where I am from, then I can say that I have successfully erased my links to Glasgow. Being Glaswegian will get me nowhere in the life that I want to live.

    Well, I can do beans on toast. It's a bit tougher if I am living with parents, but will give it a go once I move out in 18 months.

    Or you could ask them to help you out? Even if they don’t cook you could try cooking one night a week for the family. I used to do that before I went to uni and there were a few disasters but I’m so glad I did it wrong at home!

    Edit: I’d also love my boyfriend to have a Scottish accent, I find it so hot 😍

    My parents aren't great cooks, so I think that both me and my younger sister would rather give it a try ourselves. Will wait until I am done with my exams for this year as they seem quite intent on me not doing anything in the kitchen if I have studying to do, even if I offer.

    BTW - I personally find the Scottish accent, and being from Scotland in general to be a complete turn off. English all the way for me! It's rare that I have found one attractive, with the exception of the character Oliver Wood from Harry Potter. He managed to make the Scottish accent sound really sexy, so hats off to him.
