It all comes down to how you feel about yourself that exudes attractiveness.

When I'm in the mood and put myself together, yes, I think I am attractive and people notice. For a recent company function, I wore a black dress that was almost tailor made for me. My hair and makeup were on point. I looked good.

When I'm feeling withdrawn/tired/etc., then I disappear. I wear clothes that don't pop and do anything for me. My hair is in a boring ponytail. Which is what I want when I feel that way. And people don't pay much attention. Though I am tall, and that garners attention just because.

I think this applies to many people.

It does seem that the majority of compliments are always being given to women.
How nice they look today, that's a pretty dress you're wearing today, cute haircut...etc.

So guys, when I compliment you...that color shirt looks good on you, or nice smelling cologne you're wearing...would you think I'm hitting on you?

I know this could go for both sexes.

I always let my man know that he is the hottest piece of a$$ around. Am I the only one?

Nope.

Men and women love to feel desired.

There's also "I used to be very good looking, but now I'm aging and...not so much." Just as a child seems to change into an entirely different person when grown up, a young adult changes once again into an entirely different person when old.

That scares me

I have a tenant, a nice older man. He showed me his portfolio yesterday. He was a model back in the day and on many magazines. He was extremely handsome, sexy and wow, my jaw dropped, I would have never guessed.

This happens more than one would think. Was watching a show on TV the other night, a former surfer being interviewed (probably in his 60s, very aged, kind of "shlubby". They showed photos of him when he was a young surfing champ and OMG - he was drop dead kind of gorgeous - tan and buff with piercing blue eyes and thick blond hair! You would never in a MILLION YEARS recognize him. I see this happen with men and women alike, but many men seem to age earlier, and worse than women.

My sister's father-in-law died a few years ago, and the family had one of those running videos of pictures from over the years at the funeral parlor.

I only knew him as a toddling nice old man who was sliding down into dementia. I was surprised when I saw the photos of him as a young and middle-aged man. Very handsome, sharp dresser. Age is a game-changer.

The young woman who does my hair works out of a shop in a town with a lot of retirees. She said one woman comes in to get her hair done regularly. She's taken there by a caregiver because she has dementia. The stylist said that the last time she came in, she was very bright and animated, saying not to worry about getting paid because her husband will pay when he comes in later. The caregiver just gave the stylist an amused look, because the husband has been dead for years. When she was done, the stylist, not thinking, gave her hand mirror to look at herself. She said the woman stared at her reflection, and then said, "That's not me."
