Do you size yourself up against other women? adult content

Whenever you walk into a new job or get together and gauge yourself against other women? Do you make a note about how attractive you are compared to the other women? With every work place I've had since I found my self-esteem and confidence, I've done this.

  • Nope. When I worked it was in the military and we all looked the same. And nowadays, I am just another mom.

  • Yes I do. I always look them over and think to myself "She may be thinner/prettier/sexier/better dressed, but I bet she's not as happy as I am!" ; )

  • I used to, when i didn't realize how low my self asteem was. As i got older & more confident, instead of sizing myself up to them, i would compliment them. I'm realizing that there are LOTS of beautiful people in this world & instead of comparing yourself ot them, you should just appreciate them. Beauty is there to be admired. Anyhow, some people find me very attractive, while others do not. So, why should i be so competetive when eveybody's taste varies greatly? I already know that i am unique looking & pretty, and i like seeing others whom are also pretty.

    Women who do this are competetive & i find competetive women hard to be friends with. I'd rather appreciate everyone for their beauty & differences rather than compare. It makes life much easier. How do you take it when you're sizing yourself up to someone who is much more attractive than you? I bet not so good....
