Have you ever met someone who is not so beautiful, by society's' standards, but somehow they are attractive?

What are their secrets?

Here is an example:

I got a rep asking: "how do you look?" to be frank, I am unattractive but I don't have "it".

I think I'm attractive, but don't have "it"

Even when I was ugly I didn't have "it"

It's all about charisma. If you have attractive futures but zero charisma, people will soon forget how attractive you are. On the other hand, if you are just decent looking but very charismatic, people tend to be very attracted to you. If you are both attractive and charismatic, you're golden

Not sure if this extreme example fits, but on a confidence scale of 1-100, this kid scores a -10; and is so awkward, nervous and almost unkempt, that people dismiss him right away.

HOWEVER, he does have people who believe in him and support him. Hopefully, he will someday learn to love himself.

Get ready to be shocked, because there is a man inside this guy who has been masquerading as a scared little boy:

Definitely. Looks are only one part of it, and are somewhat subjective too. Like I've found some women gorgeous that others have found just so so. Plus a great personality can usually make up for lack of beauty, as long as they aren't hideously ugly...

The total irony of this clip is that most [male] opera singers look like this! LOL

I think Sara Jessica Parker is an example of someone who is far from a classic beauty yet has the "It" factor big time...

without sounding like a boastful wanker, I have "it".

My niece who is very much like me also has "it", as does her father (my brother).

The rest of the family, while arguably much better looking, just blend into a crowd. I do sometimes wonder if it's just the twinkle in our eye - we all love a good laugh.

Maybe it's genetic, maybe its something about the way you carry yourself. I don't know. What seems fairly standard is, if you have "it" you don't usually know until someone tells you.

Even the charismatic, hell, especially the charismatic, attract criticism and spite.
