I have low self esteem but I've been told very often that I'm pretty. Sometimes I think I am.

I think its obvious that men and women find certain "types" attractive to them. We've all been subjected to seeing men that have more muscles than what would be normal, or women too thin or with big rears and some men find that attractive. Its all in someone else's eyes anyways, as to whether I'm attractive. But I would love to be able to say "I love my body, my face, my hair" because then I would have the confidence that attracts the right man. And I would feel "free", if I were comfortable with how I look. The insides obviously matter more anyhow.

Same with a few others; I have very low self esteem, although I think I'm decent. Some days are better than others...as far as my confidence goes. Some days I just think I'm downright ugly.

I too have the Fair skin and freckles and add to it green eyes and Red hair I am a typical Irish girl except I don't think I'm attractive at all. I mean I can take a great picture of myself in certain light at a certain angle and that's the profile I portray but I don't actually believe I look like that so I don't think I'm attractive. I don't seem to have any trouble getting guys to fall in love with me and all my ex's have been very attractive.

I've been told I'm cute and I have been told outright I'm not 'attractive' in the normal sense of the word rather i'm "strangely alluring " .... I think I actually like that lol

Hmm...I think I've realized over the years that I have a very warped perception of what I look like. Since I feel bad about myself so much of the time it seems to skew to how I see myself physically. I try clothes on in a store absolutely certain that they fit, but when I bring them home they are clearly too large. I view myself as heavier than everyone I am around (hey, sometimes this is true), but when I see group pictures I realize that I am not the largest (not that this would discount physical attractiveness.)

Could be because I spent a few years carrying extra weight (thankfully not in my school years. Kids can be cruel.) But mainly? I think I have no ability to provide an assessment about my appearance, though my best tool has been to have someone take a photo to help me out.

So: not the best judge of my own appearance=not hideous, not model worthy. In better health than I've been in years though.
