Why else would that 50 year old bald fat man with bad teeth think he deserves a 23 year old fashion model and refuses to settle for less?
I actually do suffer from depression. I am on medication for it.

It's all in what you believe about yourself.
Well, someone like Steve Buscemi can have a great sense of self-esteem, but that doesn't mean that he'll be getting a modeling contract anytime soon.

Usually the feedback you get from others is a clue. Above and beyond your mother telling you that you're the handsomest boy in the whole universe, that is.

It has nothing to do with how women interact with you.

Women are usually primarily attracted by non-visual aspects of a man. So, if you want to know if you are good looking, you have to decide that by yourself, looking at photos of male models and comparing them to what you see in the mirror. You can't tell by how women act around you.

Lol, I believe this is the same poster who's a cougar magnet, and only dates older women.

My litmus test as a man is a man that can get away with saying things that a less attractive man cannot say without facing social rebuke or accusations of being a creep. Men and women can deny this all day long, but there is a HUGE gray area where if you are attractive, these actions will be met positively, and if you are not attractive, these actions will be viewed negatively.

I used to make a lot of sexual jokes and innuendos, people would laugh and play along. Someone else decided to do the same thing, and he was met with anger, hostility, and people leaving his table.

Back in high school, someone complained to a coach that it was unfair that I could get away with making mildly suggestive jokes and he could not, and the coach and the girls responded that the way I did it was "tasteful" and the way he did it was "creepy".

I've seen it countless times sitting in the back of a social situation playing poker, observing attractive men getting away with saying things and doing things that not as attractive men could never say or do without being perceived as a creep.

It is logically inconsistent.
