He sees many beautiful big birds swimming there. It's not a memory that I'm particuarly fond of! A little while back, for one year, I exclusively set people up on blind dates. I know this is a really old question, but I couldn't resist the opportunity to share! I live in a small town and I've lived here for the past 30 years. It makes men uncomfortable and offends women. I can't deny that I was jealous. I just don't take it serious when a guy approaches me or the wrong type of guy approaches me. And of this: that sadly in our society, first appearances are what matter most - being among the elite, this means that girls will put your high on their list, and as more girls hit on you, there will be those few who not many really want to be in a relationship with.Next
I do throw my looks in their faces the ones that were mean to me because I feel like I want to hurt them like they hurt me. The poor duckling is so unhappy there. For every pretty snob there's a very pretty down to earth girl. I'm still working on getting over this 'ugly duckling syndrome'. I was an ugly duckling too, and started blossoming in fits and starts. The problem is, I predicted that when I would change, womens perception of me would change. It makes me feel that much more assured on the fact that looks are a big deal.Next
If physical looks matter to you, then please be honest about it. I certainly hope you find someone, Duckling. If you knew to get where I am, you would understand. I use to be fat and chubby when I was younger. So at least ugly duckling syndrome leads you to good relationship choices, I think.Next
All the guys that used to tease me were amazed! When I had lost the weight I found that all these people who would never give me the time of day before were all friendly with me. Actually for a while I was dating guys that I didn't find attractive, but who I liked enough for their traits, funny, smart, etc. I don't know if I'm in a similar situation or approaching it, but I feel you should be accepting of the flattering flirtations towards you - and this may take a while, but weed out the shallow girls who only want you for your looks, and couldn't give a penny about your personality - let alone your intelligence. But ultimately at the end you will understand that both guys contributed into turning Maewnam into the confident chick she was at the end. He is no more an ugly duckling.
You have the right to make that your dealbreaker. As a kid up right till college I was the fat girl and no guy ever dated me. But the point to this is that we all notice the physical appearance first so yes we all compete with each other in maintaining our looks and high standards and picking someone who's a trophy and in some cases not a lot of us that are willing to admit pick someone who lacks er nice looks! So, stop telling me I need to take the compliment. I don't feel you actually need any of this advice, you may have thought of it, or heard it before. Girls who walk over and get all over you however.Next
Their feathers are so white, their necks so long, their wings so pretty. I figure, if somebody likes me now, the way I am, then they are one of the only people that would deserve me when I lost weight. I came across a New York Times piece that discussed the ultimate formula to gauge how long a celebrity marriage will last. Everything is fresh and green. I sometimes feel that the reflection isn't me lol.Next
I've found the best way to find out what people are all about is watch how they treat the people they don't know, as apposed to you or their friends. Nobody knew my name growing up. The next day mother duck takes all her little ducks to the river. Come with me to the farm yard! Personally I dislike it at all, you have to look a certain way just to be glances at I don't know why that is but its pathetic. My favorite of the ugly duckling series. But I guess I'm so used to trying not to draw extra attention to myself. Beauty is more of a conversation than it is a fact of nature.Next
And you know what's so funny and ironic, all of the girls that used to be popular back in the days are now either fat or less attractive than me! If you want to know if a woman is a bitch watch how she treats the waitress when your out, or listen to how she talks about the other people who are out. I think people think I'm snobby because of it. I hardly ever leave the house without makeup on because it makes me feel better about the way I look. Everything is white with snow. Here is some background of me, I was young fat and ugly. At first I didn't know how to react.
My high school reunion was the best time of life! And I see the reaction people esp the ladies give me wen they see me. I wish I had a photo back then on my computer so you can see the huge difference! I was short, stuttered, and looked funny not ha-ha funny in my youth. I could never feel safe from the torment if I didn't feel safe in my own skin. I mean, I look in the mirror and sometimes I knock myself out. Exactly the same situation, as a child and young adult I was always over weight. I could never feel safe from the torment if I didn't feel safe in my own skin.Next
I've actually noticed a similar pattern among teenage guys in regards to height. You may be surprised by what you see. But to answer your question most of us will find it hard to find someone who's actually into us for us not into our looks and that's one of the most hardest things of all! I used to get picked on all the time from elem. I have got a great personality - the same great personality I had when I was younger being not so physically appealing. Though very kind, funny and nice. We are attracted to so much more than what we see with our eyes. But, I have learned to accept the fact that you can't really change people but only yourself and I am okay with that.Next
