I know it's not the most esoteric thing in the world to think, but I have a load of allergies, and also physically what is considered a kindof freaky body, and I'm going bald and yadayada.

I often look at pretty young people who I'm barely older than anyway and wish I had their body. It really annoys me to see people with such great bodies, goin' around having great sex and being attractive to everybody. Yeah, I know I sound like some desperate dick who can't get any. But hey I'm gonna be honest about it.

Sure. I don't obsess over it. But if I see a hot women, I give her props. She is pretty, and I would love having her looks.

But, I don't think on it too much. it's more a passing thought.

I never look at anyone and wish I had anything of theirs, no point in wasting my time since I am me and they are them.
You can change your body if you choose to, you can do something about the hair loss if you choose to, you can take medication for the allergies if you choose to and you can be attractive to someone if you choose to.
Look around you at all the couples who are together, are they all "perfect beauties" from the magazine covers? No they are not, they are regular people just like you.

Well you certainly sound everything must be just the way you want it then, shame we can't all be as good as that sadly.

I can't change my bone structure and it puts people off. So I'd love to know how you'd tell me to change that if you apparently think it's possible. I have an abnormally developed skeleton, like someone in a circus, and it's very rare. No change there.. and yes everyone I've met is totally put off by it. Maybe now you'll understand a bit more about why I feel like I do.

,
There's no known medication for the allergy I have. Seeing as I've had the condition years and you've only just read one of my posts, it should hardly need saying that I've already explored every possible cure/medication there could be for the condition.

I'm not ONLY interested in whether a partner likes it or not, but also my own satisfaction in it.

Anyone can have a great body. It just takes a lot of hard work and discipline. I've had a great body, and I've had a not so great body. The former is much better, but seeing people who looked great didn't make me wish I had their bodies, it just made me feel guilty for letting mine go.

This.
100%.
NO ONE is perfect.

You have to stop comparing yourself to others and be the best YOU possible.

See the above comment re. the deformed skeleton.

Absolutely not, because I am the woman who you look at and wish to be like me.

Perfect bodies don't last. Age, life and gravity will get to everyone eventually. It's better to learn to like yourself and realize that there's more to you than just your physical appearance.

You don't have to have a perfect body to have good sex either. Plenty of ugly people are out there having a good time. They make the best of what they've got or they cultivate a personality that has appeal beyond the superficial. Someone who is confident in himself is very sexy, even if he's not physically attractive.

I cannot answer this poll because my answer would be no. I am happy with what God gave me.
