I'm pretty realistic about my attractiveness level I guess. I think I look cute if I put on makeup and fix my hair- like any female in her 20's. If I don't pay attention to my looks, I just look like an average schmoe. I try to make my personality "cute". (Smiley, laughing) I think that makes someone attractive. I don't have any real issues with any features that I have. I like my eyes so I try to emphasize them if I decide to put on makeup.
Sometimes I feel ugly. That's when I am tired and stressed, and have purple circles under my eyes and am very pale, don't have time for a hair fixing and not hydrated properly.
Overall i'm okay with how I look, though.
How important are looks?
If you are unfortunate looking, I think that its harder to make a good impression, so you have to work on your personality and try hard. So its just a harder life to have. In that respect, they are important. But most people are presentable and proportionate and normal looking, so its not usually a problem. Sometimes I think that it would be a very easy life to just look like a super-model and get what you want all the time, but I think that they probably don't have it much easier than us average schmoes.
How important is it to feel or not feel physically attractive?
Its imporant to feel confident about your looks,but that starts with feeling okay on the inside, too. I'd much rather be fairly homely and self-confident than beautiful and not feeling that way.
