Do you see yourself as ugly, plain, pretty, fancy, or just plain beautiful?

I am very beautiful..People tend to stare at me..But I dont mind..I love people..My inside is just as beautiful too.

Nice to know how our fellow man enjoys hurting other people's feelings as human beings.

I hope that they were teenagers at least. Not that that excuses their behaviour but if grown men were doing this

Unfortunately, signs or not, people, not just men, do this everyday in treating others differently, acting more friendly, etc...

It is also easy to blame the actions of others for our own self-esteem issues but if we have better self-esteem then getting low-carded should not affect one terribly.

Likewise if the person who gets the high-card feels a boost all day because of it then you can also say they have bad self-esteem issues as well if that is what it takes for a boost...see not just the unattractive have self-esteem issues.

It is never other people, or the Hollywood version of beauty that is put out, that causes self-esteem issues but rather how we feel ourselves and what we think up all in our own little minds.

I am sure though that it is worst for post-menopausal women though...instead of men looking to them to see if they are attractive or not it is as if they are just invisible. Something to do with how we evolved to notice those who have the most fertile signals.

In either case too many people believe they are either born with it or not, which leads to most self-esteem issues, because they are focused on just one aspect of themselves and do not really see themselves as a complete person able to express and display beauty in other ways.

For some it is as if others do not find them attractive then they just give up and quit trying when the people who are most likely viewed as attractive consistently work with what they have instead of just giving up.

A graceful person who is elegant is always a winner regardless of the looks they were born with.

There's nothing wrong with being confident, as long as it doesn't come off as snobbish or arrogant

I see myself as a normal and plain young woman. Not ugly, just less attractive. There is only one person that I just happen to be almost alike but different, my friend. She's short like me, hour glass figure, and a cute face. I'm just the opposite. However, I love love my personality though. I wouldn't dare to exchange it for my friend's cuteness. I'm proud of that for sure.

Oh yeah. I think my fashion is pretty decent. Very simple and modest. Not anything like nyc fashion. It's my own kind of fashion.

I rate myself with how I feel, I know that sounds cheesy, but it's true. If I feel healthy, I'll say I feel beautiful! Not every day can be a good one, we all have our bad days where we avoid the mirror, but for the most part, I'd say I look good!

Some men and women think I'm beautiful, but I just see myself as cute or pretty (the girl next door type).
