Default Are you good looking?

Curious....If someone looks at your face/body, do you think they think you are attractive? I had surgery on my jaw and ended up with significant nerve damage. So, I look kind of odd. Anyway, ever since then I have considered myself unattractive/not good looking. How about y'all?

I've never considered myself as good looking. I have been told I'm cute. I've never been able to see myself that way. I have fair skin and freckles, for which I was teased about by my father and others when I was young, so I always thougt I was inferior. Now as I am 61, cute doesn't apply anymore.

Oh my...

My dear gayleggg, there is no age limit on being cute. "Cute" is a frame of mind. Really, it is. My wife is 63. Even though she's older than she was when we got together when we were in our early 20's, we're both showing our age (which is a good thing). But, she's still just as cute as a bugs ear! My mother-in-law is 94 but she's just as cute as a pixie! Age does not diminish cuteness one little bit.

And your age hasn't diminished your cuteness either.

You may look different than you did when you were a nubile young woman, but "cute" goes all the way to the bone and beyond. "Cute" is in your heart...

Am I good looking?

Well, I suppose some people think mud fences are attractive so I guess anything is possible.

But do I think I'm good looking?

I honestly don't know.

I think I am who I am and nothing I can do will change that fact... So, I suppose I'm reasonably satisfied with the way my face looks. I mean, what alternate do I have? Wishing to appear different than the way I now look would only bring me unhappiness. So, there it is.

I don't think about the outward appearance of my face any more than I think about the outward appearance of anyone elses face or body... It's just window dressing. And window dressing is always changing in apperarnce.

Big "no", imo. It's simply a desire that never happened for whatever reason.

Some men say that I'm beautiful, but some men also say whatever they hope will get them "lucky" as well. So, their opinion doesn't really mean much to me, unfortunately. I'd love to actually believe that I am beautiful....just once!

Oh well

I've been told I'm good looking a few times. I've always appreciated that kind of compliment, but at the same time, my modesty does not allow me to fully accept it.

That's a tricky one for me. I've recently lost 210lbs. so I'd imagine some might think I'm good looking now. I don't think I am. All this hanging skin, and other issues. Ugh. However, my husband thinks I'm the hottest thing ever so that's good, right? LOL
