I usually only look into the mirror to shave and make sure my hair is messed up good enough to go out. I'm phobic about people finding me attractive, so I've been dressing disheveled, giving myself shaggy haircuts and messing up my hair on purpose for about 2 decades and counting. I only shave sometimes because I don't know which way to go. I look effeminate and shaving makes me look even more so, so it makes a lot of women (and lots of people) think I'm gay, but then some people find facial hair unattractive (although I can't grow a full beard), so I shave sometimes.

When I very rarely do actually try to look at myself in the mirror, I can't help but make silly faces at myself. I don't like my picture taken either. I know it's kind of ironic considering I like photography, including taking photos of other people, just not of myself.

Usually something like. "I still have no idea what celebrity I should use as a reference point to describe my appearance!"

And some days I think: I am having an awesome skin day. And other days I think, wow I look really dull today, I need to exfoliate.

And some days I go, wow I really do look like my mom's side of the family. I totally have their smiles!

And other times I wonder, if I dropped 20 pounds if my cheeks would still be round. And then I go back and think about my mom's family and go, yup.

I usually think, I am so lucky to be perfectly content with what I have been granted. How about we perk those eyes up a bit? Now, smile pretty.

I usually think

"Damn, why'd I have to have a lazy eye."
"Why couldn't my face be slimmer"
"My waist needs to be smaller"
"My butt needs to be bigger"

Basically, I think the bulk of my appearance needs work.

Only thing I am content with is my breast size. Not too small-thank goodness 1 nice thing.

Your words really struck me. I used to do say similar things to myself. Please, I beg of you...be kind to yourself. We are always harder on ourselves...

When you're in your 20s, never dated, never had any of the guys you are attracted to reciprocate, and only get attention from bums and thugs, I think it's safe to say you're not that hot.

Not serious. I don't plan to kill myself over it. lol Just being honest that I was not blessed as one of the super hot. That takes work, which I am doing--possibly some surgery. I have a good bit of money saved. No reason, just saving. So I may add on to it and get some surgery with it.

I'm not always tired so wish I didn't look that way. Dark circles under my eyes and a heavy lid have developed with age.
Otherwise pretty good.

I try not to look but when I do I wonder who that old lady is.

I'm actually much happier when I don't spend time looking at myself and seeing all the flaws. I look just enough to put myself together in the morning and some quick peeking during the day to make sure I don't have something stuck between my teeth or raccoon eyes.

I don't think I would be able to walk down the street if I was.
