    Well, like I said. Being naturally attractive is meaningless to me. It irritates me when people think that being naturally beautiful = being naturally valuable, and that "artificial" beauty (this is a very broad sliding scale, mind you) is fake character. It's not. It's purely external. Beauty is a fickle friend. Its presence (or taking care of it, for that matter) is neither the presence of virtue nor the lack.

    I know there's a stereotype that Asian women don't age, but unfortunately, that doesn't ring true for my mom's side of the family. On my dad's side, though, holy dang. My forty-something-year-old cousin looks like she could be my age.

Look in the mirror: I have no wrinkles, I'm still thin and in just as good or better shape than most 20 year olds, etc...... these are all ways of "pretending" I am not aging lol......
    How's that not sx? :o

    wanting to look and feel sexy is a sign of high self worth, not pretentiousness. it's instinct based, not ego based. I recently told a friend that I was thinking of getting a nose job and she said "why can't you just be happy being yourself?" I answered "I am being myself. I want to express on the outside how I feel on the inside." I think people who express themselves via fashion are being themselves more than people who don't.

    PS: it's overexaggerated, but it's not a myth. I heard in an anthropological documentary that various cosmetic companies have studied asian women for years for this reason. it has something to do with wrinkling more slowly.

    One word: sexiness.

    When sexy has always been an important part of your life you find the thought of losing it almost unbearable.

    Maybe I'll think differently in 10-15 years, but I doubt it.

    Yeah I love dressing up and I wonder why some people don't. They ask me where I shop and I say "probably the same place as you..." I mean the clothes are right there
    Well what if you like your face? :3

    I feel like we're straying from topic haha.

    When I was a kid I did child modeling but I didn't really understand the concept of being aesthetically pleasing until I hit a fat stage and people ridiculed me I was just a little 12 year old. Then I became a string bean over the summer due to a growth spurt and everything else kind of ended up what it is now.

    Yep, gaining weight is a sure fire way to learn to appreciate just how important your appearance is. LIKE OMG PEOPLE ARE TREATING ME DIFFERENTLY THIS IS INSANE.

    There was this one guy who wouldn't even talk to me while I was chubby and then about 4 years later he said "Hey you're kinda pretty." :| I mean I was proud but I felt sorry for my chubby self.
    Sometimes I feel like I have to be attractive because of my family. They're all freaking supermodels and if I don't measure up I'm afraid I'll be kind of an embarrassment. This also applies to my academic desires. Compared to my family I feel like a failure, which could be why I worry so much.

    I have a friend who makes fun of me for two main characteristics of my shopping habits:
    1. I don't wear neutrals. Like I don't remember the last time I wore a white or gray shirt.
    2. I notice cute things that she completely misses and know what it would match with like BOOM.
    "OOH, this looks cute!" -grabs a skirt from a shelf slightly higher than my head-
    "...how did you even see that?"

    Wha, I thought we settled on 3, 6, and are fuzzy on the stacking.
