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)-

Quoting MdMom289:

I am definitely average. I dress very plane Jane. Most days it's yoga pants with a tshirt and sweat shirt and sometimes I'll even throw on a pair of jeans if I go out. I wear zero make up. I do like to put on a little make up on special occasions. But it still looks very natural. I'm sure I can look "above average" if I got really dressed up and put on a lot of make up and some heels. But it doesn't happen, so yes, I am just average.I don't show very much skin, either. I'm very uncomfortable in my own skin.

This is everyday. That shirt is what I actually consider "nicer" even though it's just a plain striped long sleeve shirt.

This was Thanksgiving day. Nicer Old navy sweater, jeans and flats that are like six years old and have holes in them! lol I am wearing mascara, eye shadow and a little blush.

and this is slightly more fancy.. I have on more make up than the picture above it. I own a few dresses and wedges, but I just feel awkward wearing them. I'm only 4'10" and I feel like it really throws off my balance. My husband always begs me to wear a pair of wedges. But I just don't feel sexy!
