    Default Do yourself and others consider you as physically attractive ?

    I mean, not only by saying "physically attractive", but also "beautiful", "cute" or such.

    You can see that I made separate checkboxes for SELF and OTHERS.

    If neither yourself and others consider you physically attractive, check the third checkbox only.

    Please be honest.

    I only voted that others consider me physically attractive, because I only consider myself attractive sometimes.

    My opinion changes a lot.
    maybe a saint is just a dead prick with a good publicist

    I think I'm attractive. Perhaps not stunningly gorgeous or anything, but I think I look pretty good.

    And I know there are plenty of others who find me attractive. I get checked out on the street quite frequently, says my best friend. I never notice *shrug*

    I'm pretty average. No biggie, just means I gotta get more charm.

    I'd be lying if I said I wasn't insecure. Most of the compliments that I receive are on my looks... not my personality, not my intelligence, or other qualities... :-/

    *edit* crap, I didn't notice that people could see who was voting for what... I'm embarrassed now

    It's understandable. I mean, physicality is only one part, and it's the fastest part guys can assess, obviously. I think we (guys) need to stop complementing so much on looks. Like others have said, it's nice but ultimately shallow (duh!)

    I believe that I am an 'alright catch', I mean I think it's good to have the confidence to say 'I'm not half bad!'.

    Even if you're not widely known as the 'hottie', who cares?

    For me, I think that some bit of looking good is the security and confidence in yourself.

    So, yeah - I'm not half bad.

    I don't consider myself attractive, and neither do others, but luckily I'm not ugly. So I'm average in terms of physically attraction. Which is good enough for me as I have yet to have any problems caused by my physically attraction.

    Sure, it's not nice when a fat ho thinks she's hot and dresses like a prostitute, but acting and dressing like a slut are different from thinking of yourself as an attractive person.

    Fuck you I'm a 12.





    I don't think I fall within the generally accepted parameters of physically attractive but I have charm and a generally lighthearted irony about it so I can do fine if I want to. Most of my problem is I don't give a shit... so I don't try to be attractive/keep myself up. I know I'm capable of it though so I can sort of draw confidence from that.

    I don't think it's such a cut and dry thing. I mean I can be physically attracted to someone who I would say is objectively pretty plain. And I'm not talking about getting to know someone better and gradually thinking they're better looking than they are. I mean immediate physical attraction. I think it's more about what sort of energy the person is producing and whether you are attracted or repulsed by it.

    Within reason though.

    That doesn't make sense. Attractiveness is, for the most part, a static quality. Out of curiosity, at what times do/don't you think you're attractive?

    yeah i sometimes think my pics resemble a less objectively attractive you

    in general i think i do have a lot of confidence in my attractiveness, but physically I think I am not what a majority would consider attractive, and i think part of it has to do with that i am a female (and i'd be lying if i said the lack of response to my pictures here didn't make me feel that i "must be ugly"). In that sense i am pretty much clueless about what is attractive to the masses and look for feedback from as many as i can, but i do understand symmetry and other artistic concepts about attractiveness in that sense. I have features that are not considered feminine, like a small nose, large eyes. I have a button-ish nose but its still not like.. small or shapely or anything. My eyes are smaller and sometimes i think my lips are objectively attractive, like makeup artists and the average joe on the street say they like them. I have strong eyebrows and my skin has gotten worse so i have a few spots and blemishes, and i am overweight. Still, i see that there are many fat, spotty, masculine women who have sexual and/or marital partners, so i always think that they, and i, might be attractive even though i am fat, spotty, and masculine.

    On the other hand, i do think that i can be attractive and sexy with the proper clothing because i have a chest and an ass.

    I think that machintruc meant something that cuts all of that out. Maybe the definition changes over time, but i think one thing that scientists have figured out is that there is a correlation between symmetry and attractiveness in the human face. There's also something like a beautiful face set of proportions, one of which faces fits it is Elizabeth Hurley. Of course you're right that being attracted to someone is highly subjective, in that it will vary from person to person. But I would think that if youre heterosexual you would find some things to be objectively a requirement, like the opposite sex organ you have?

There's also something like a beautiful face set of proportions, one of which faces fits it is Elizabeth Hurley. Of course you're right that being attracted to someone is highly subjective, in that it will vary from person to person.
    Yeah, but he didn't ask whether you were actually physically attractive - just whether you and other people have found yourself to be attractive. So that suggested to me that he was after subjective opinions on your attractiveness rather than the actual truth. But maybe I'm being overly pedantic.

    Haha. Yeah - hence the 'within reason'.
