    Funny thread. I feel a bit of a hypocrite when it comes to personal image.

    When I was a kid I think I was aware I was kind of attractive. At least girls used to be drawn to me. Of course when you are younger you don't even care about girls. With puberty came acne and it was a bit of a blow to my self esteem as I started obsessing over the opposite sex. I play the confident character part pretty well but doesn't really help convince myself that looks aren't important. I'm a guy who doesn't really care much what others think of me, but I think I'm a lot more self-aware then I was years ago. I now feel the need to exercise. That's what I mean by hypocrisy.

    I feel this way a lot. It's really easy for me to become sort of detached from my body. I tend to neglect my body a lot because I am not very tuned into my physical needs. Whether or not I am feeling ugly or particularly attractive has nothing to do with my physical appearance, although I usually think it does.

    The magic metabolism of youth just vanished for me a few months ago (im 22) and since then, the pounds have started piling on. My tall and lanky frame is changing and yes, whenever I'm out in public, I spend several minutes obsessing over people noticing that. I intend to hit a gym soon and I'm sure I'll feel much more confident about my appearance when I do.

    EDIT: I must add that I felt properly hideous all through my severe acne years (15 - 18). Never kid anyone about their acne.

    I'm the most out-of-shape and most antisocial I've been in my life... and suddenly, I have three girls crushing on me within the space of a few months when practically none noticed me during the previous two years.

    I'll never understand 'this'.

    I have always been content with my looks. I feel comfortable in my own skin.

    I do not feel insecure when interact with someone who is strikingly attractive and is cocky about their looks. As far as I am concerned, they can go fuck their shallow self.

    The only time I get self conscious is when I meet someone who is not only pretty, but also pleasant and polite. That upsets me. I don't like being in a presence of someone who is clearly a better person than I am.

    This says it all, I am too detached from the outside so the person inside doesn't really have an image, I don't know who the person in the mirror is. I guess you never know what you really look like through other people's eyes. In all honesty though, I am content with how I look and never though negative or positive about it, mainly due to the detachment.

    Yeah.

    Also, sometimes I have fashion meltdowns. I feel really crappy if I'm not satisfied with my outfit, but it's not directly related to how attractive I feel.

    Of course.
