Here's the gist of what you're reading, and it's all you need to know: Your looks aren't likely to impede you in any way. You're a good-looking fella. But believe it or not, beyond that, good looks aren't too important. How you carry and present yourself is much more important, and as you age the raw good looks means less and less while your personality and presentation become more and more important.

If you want to be more "attractive", develop interests, become a good conversationalists, and be the best that you can be at *something*. In other words, be someone that people like to talk to and associate with and the "go-to" person for your job or other interest.

Thanks, I mean I am trying to work out more and more and get a better body, tough to do while being a science major.

So if someone honestly thought he was ugly, why shouldn't they be able to say that?

*sigh*....OP, I think you're gorgeous.

Please call me ugly, but be decent enough to give me some lipstick so I can at least look pretty before you guys decide to f*ck me!

You're very good-looking (coming from a woman who's old enough to be your mom!). I think you sound a bit self-conscious though, and even though you might not be trying to sound that way, it definitely comes out.

Your physique, from what I can see, is good. You're far from overweight.

I like your hair, but you might consider switching things up every now and then and trying different styles.

you're a nice looking fellow. Some things to consider re: your appearance:

1. How are your teeth? Since you aren't smiling in the photo, there's no way to tell. If your teeth are crooked, get braces. If there are chips, get them bonded. If they are dull, get them whitened. A great smile is a wonderful asset. If you have nice straight white teeth already, good on you!

2. Good posture. Absolutely free, makes you look thinner and more confident no matter what else is going on in your life.

3. Wear clean clothes that aren't too wrinkled up. Take the time to fold stuff when it comes out of the dryer instead of just stuffing it into a laundry bag/duffle.

I'll stick directly with your topic and pose 2 quick questions; Do you still look at yourself as being a heavy person and how tall are you?

Don't know why any guy would want to be a "10". Dressed up in a stylish suit and great hair and you could do the GQ thing. I think for us guys, if your relatively good looking, who you are and how you carry your self can be the difference between someone who is attractive and someone who is not. I would not even know how to grade myself and a number scale. I could only say If you grabbed 10 random guys, mulitple times, I would have to say I would average out at #2 for looks only. I would say you would hit the #1 spot more often than I! Now, if you included personality, confidence, life experience, "other factors good and bad" I would consistantly be in the #1 spot. You would have to judge for yourself on the personality factors or better yet have your friends or dates make that determination. Friends are partial so you may not get real feedback. Dating is a great indication of your desireability (Looks, personality and other factors). If you get 100% feed back your doing something right!
