1.) You don't need to be attractive to be confident.
2.) You'd never guess the number of people who think you're attractive, but are not confident enough to tell you.

you might reach the point where you feel like you have nothing to lose from just being yourself (and wanting to be that). Things get pretty interesting and awesome after that...

(also ditto on what DovePoet said)

I know the feeling. Here's a little something that helped me get by.

Everyday find something about you that you like or just focus on teh one good thing. Later if you ever feel down just think:

"I have an amazing (insert thing here) and its damn sexy."

This shouldn't be so funny, but it wouldn't be if that weren't exactly what's in my head. Thank you, ST. And don't worry, it'll be okay.

Ugh I know the feeling. It's an endless, spiraling cycle.

Actually, to be confident, you need to start a personal mantra of "I can do this, I am fucking awesome" at all times, primarily in times where you feel anxious or uncomfortable. Masturbating helps, I kid you not. Relieves the stress and anxiety, gives you confidence in knowing how your body works, feels GREAT, and I speak from personal experience when I say it can make a lot of problems go away. Also, go to GoodWill or another thrift shop and try on a bunch of clothes you wouldn't normally think about buying. That was my BIG trigger, finding a style I never thought twice about actually looked good on me, and eventually, I reshaped my whole wardrobe (Still via GoodWill, haha), and I feel more confident that I look like a woman and not some fat chick in dude clothes. And for me, being attractive doesn't necessarily require big boobs or nice hair or a soft sexy slim figure. I'm chubby as hell and learned early on that a well placed smirk and some playful banter will get a guy wild faster than the sexiest woman alive. Have faith in yourself, ST. I do ^^

tell yourself you are attractive. it worked for me

Such is life; full of these contradicting cycles. It sucks.
TheAlyGal Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2011  Student Writer
Lol, darlin', you've got it messed up. Confidence makes people attractive. You don't have to BE attractive, you have to FEEL attractive. Just look at some cocky people--not all of them are necessarily blessed ;)

Do what makes you feel attractive and you will become confident. Whether it's taking an extra long shower in the morning or shaving twice as often (or not), you're that little step closer.

:hug: I so understand.

Seems like people need to wear make up to get a guy and have no glasses. Happily I have a friend who never wore makeup, didn't have glasses and still got married. :) There are very rare but nice guys who will find you attractive even without make up. But it is a catch 22.

Hope you feel better. :) You can build up confidence with academics. Sometimes confidence is found that way, or being yourself

I know how that goes. BUT I decided that I'm starting college soon and it's time for a change. I'm going to let my hair grow out so I can let it do it's naturally wavy thing as I've always found it super attractive, I found a facial cleansing system that works for me, and I started a new diet :3. Nothing all that drastic, but just within two weeks my stomach has shrank where I eat less, I'm eating healthier though not as healthy as some do, and I work out in what little ways I can (physical disabilities limit me.) And you know what? My tight pants...put them on today and I actually needed a belt because my "pooch" at my stomach is gone. :3 I'm still a big girl but I'm getting a little more confident in the idea of losing at least one pants size and aiming for two.

Fake it 'til you make it ;) I'm told that works. Still a Work In Progress for me though...

I agree with ~DovePoet. Doing little things to your appearance can turn out to be a big change. All throughout high school I thought I was an ugly fuck because I didn't know how to do *~girly things~* like MAKEUP and CURLING HAIR and CLOTHES like what the fuck are these things i still don't even
Anyway. Once I got out of high school, I said to myself, "Self, let's not give a fuck for once. We are bored, we are horribly depressed, and we hate ourselves. Change SOMETHING. ANYTHING. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD JUST STOP MOPING."

So I went out and got myself a goddamn pixie cut because it's a haircut I've always thought was amazing and adorable and awesome and several other alliterations. And ever since then I've felt like an awesome sexy beast. I get people coming up to me and complimenting me on my hair and "oh gosh I could never pull that off!!"

Don't change yourself for others. Change yourself for YOU. I wanted to make myself feel less like a piece of shit, so I did something I've always wanted to do and I haven't regretted chopping off my hair yet. It's been years. People tried to dissuade me from a pixie at first, but now no one can imagine me with long hair. It's what I like and I'm sticking with it.

If you change for someone else, it's gonna feel uncomfortable. Fuck everyone else, ST. Do what's right for you, whatever "right" is.

Or you be like me, and learn to just not give a fuck. I'm not very attractive and I found I just don't care anymore. I do as I am.
DovePoet Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
You may discover that if you do little things to grow your confidence, you'll see yourself as attractive.
Or, on the other hand, doing little things to your appearance may make you feel more attractive, and therefore more confident.

Best of luck, ST
