Ohhhh. Be good to yourself. Standards of beauty are ever changing. And it's really not about the personality. It's about liking yourself !!! Don't get wrapped up in the superfluous.

There are many beautiful women in western Africa. I prefer the darker women and those with the classic African features rather than the more white looking features. Not all black women have big seats either.

Whiter seems to be the thing all over the world. In Asia, and India, with skin whiteners. I suppose in Asia its partly because most of the movie stars, singers and TV personalities are lighter skinned. Then white people want to be tan.

Of course you want to look your best, but don't obsess over things you read and hear about too much. I bet you are pretty, you are just too hard on yourself. People also look at ones inner beauty. So its really the whole package that makes an impression. Pretty on the outside and ugly on the inside = ugly. Best of Luck to you.

I've tried...

Many others have tried...

I sincerely hope that you succeed.

Read some of the other threads and posts you will see for yourself it is a CHOICE that remains because of the refusal to seek therapy to correct the issue because everyone ELSE has the problem NOT them.

A tan on a white woman cannot be compared to the dark brown of an African woman.

White women still don't have the wide noses of black women.
Ethiopians and Somalians do not have wide noses. That is only west Africans.

And you care why?

If you think you're beautiful, why do you care what others think?

I am pretty certain that beautiful dark skin, beautiful wide noses, beautiful full lips, and beautifully feminine behinds are considered very hot among those looking for such features. These features are not considered 'extreme' by those who naturally have them, which by the way are an amazingly large amount of people in this world.

I personally am not saying I hate wide noses, although I admit they're not my ideal, but just saying they are considered unattractive for a woman in the conventional standard of beauty.

I am aware both African American and other African women, from East and North Africa, have more 'Caucasian' noses. The body type in Ethiopia or Kenya or Tanzania is way different to the type in Senegal. Much slimmer. In the case of American blacks, those with sharper noses tend to have more white genes, like Pam Grier or something (even though Pam was fairly dark). Pure Nigerians almost always have the broad nose.
