Of course. But it takes effort to look good. I have days where I know I just don't look as good, sometimes it's dark circles under the eyes, or I just feel less healthy, you know, that sorta thing. But I've always been pretty honest about what I think of myself as far as looks, I knew when I wasn't good looking, probably a lot of people have that awkward phase, and then when I was able to put a lot of work into fixing physical shortcomings and making myself better looking, it was pretty noticeable quickly, I mean then I got girls hitting on me, which was totally new to me, and had no problems talking to hot girls and at least getting the time of day

I think only girls are super insecure about their looks. Some really good looking girls somehow still don't think they are good looking, which is so weird.

Based on reactions I get from men and women-yes, I am attractive. However, I know how to clean up well. I think I look god-awful without makeup. A little makeup, hair, smile, and clothes to show off my curves and I am set.

I don't think I am pretty or beautiful. I think there is a difference.

I think that's right--I've met some men who think they're still hot even when they're 100 lbs overweight, but don't know any women who would think so--most of us don't think we'll be hot until we lose that last 5 lbs, and another 5 lbs just to be sure.

I think I'm somewhat attractive. There are times when I think I look really good... and times when i look a hot mess... I'm very modest and would much rather compliment someone else than myself. I appreciate beauty in others much more than I do myself. I've become more confident in my looks as I've gotten older (26 now). I realize everyone sees flaws in themselves and I think my inner beauty will be more important in the long run....

I am butt ugly phugly. Fortunately, I always stuff a couple of potatoes down the front of my pants to divert attention from my face. Then I use my favorite pickup line "Hey baby, you want fries with that?" as I look down towards my crotch.

Everything is relative in terms of "older".
I have an ex-gf that did commercial modeling at times up until around age 32ish and even at 42 was smoking hot even though she'd changed a bit here and there. (I'm absolutely not superficial about stuff like a little extra chub or sag, stretch etc. which is a good thing as I age too).

You will look back in 15 years and say "why didn't I think I was gorgeous when I was 26?" Don't be too hard on yourself.

Good for you in being more confident. Confidence is both sexy and good for you soul in terms of finding someone that will think you are just the best thing going on.

I am just average. At 34 am losing my face but am much more content than in younger years. I look back at old pics and wish I still looked that way sometimes. I still get flirted with often etc but part of that is that I am flirty and fun loving.
