Do you consider yourself "average" looking? * Just to be clear - I do consider average to be pretty

Posted by   + Show Post

 and if so is there anything wrong with that?

I understand people wanting to look their best. But there seem to be some people that are not happy with how they look...even though they are not unattractive. They are simply "average" looking.

I personally don't think "average" looking is bad at all. I am average looking imo. I accept the fact that some people find me above average...some people find me below average.

There are times where I do feel lilke I look far beyond avergae and days I look so below average I shouldn't leave the house.

However on a daily basis I think I am average looking. 

I am not ugly, I don't make babies cry and old ladies clutch their purses....I also don't have women staring daggers of jealously at me and men following me around like puppies. I think for the most part people say, "that is a nice looking lady" and that is if they notice me at all.

I try to look my best everyday and I am comfortable with that. How about you? Let me add there is nothing at all wrong with feeling you look above average (I honestly wish I did more often).

***just to be clear I do consider average to be pretty....not drop dead gorgeous...but pretty.

This is average me (with short hair and no make-up)-

Nope I feel like I have a lot of work to do to look average. I have never thought I was pretty

I was pretty when I was younger, but never the prettiest girl in the room.  Now that I'm older, I'm pretty average - but I'm good with that.

I think I'm average. Looks mattered to me more when I was younger. Now I'm just happy that DH says I'm sexy and it's nice to hear a compliment now and then.

I don't know, Scarlett is pretty darn hot ;-)

Don't know. Everyone tells me I look like Scarlett Johannsen and I'm like no way lol, but it's been going on since I was a kid and first watched Horse Whisperer. So I guess I'm pretty. I don't really stare at myself in the mirror like oh yeah now that's one fine bitch or anything like that lol.
