I used to think I was attractive.
Then I got older and realized what truly attractive people look like, and I'm balding.
Now I can't lower my standards even though I know I have to because I always told myself I was in the same league as attractive women.
God I hate myself.
I feel you OP it is the most depressing of feels
I used to think I was attractive too op. But when you look 14 at 21 are balding, skinny, a manlet, have nig features, and sunken eyes you just have to face reality. Kinda sucks knowing I'll die alone and unloved t b h tho
It doesn't matter really anyways. People don't usually ask for my height anymore, probably because I'm not in high school and instead of mocking me they just silently pity or scorn me
or maybe they do mock me, i dunno
My hair looks kind of like yours but even worse since It's dirty blonde and thin so you can see through straight to my head under bright light. And there's contrast between the top and my sides which are darker.
It's so fucking shit.
>I can't lower my standards
I'm super good at lowering my standards, but then I talk to some truly stupid and annoying girls and realize I don't want my penis anywhere near their body. So it doesn't do me too much good in the sex field.
>tfw you go on swings of thinking you're an 8-9/10 and a 4-5/10
>tfw you go on swings of thinking you're the smartest person in the room and dumb as fuck
I think I might be manic/depressive, but I'm not sure, and haven't seen anyone about it
I experience this as well. And I agree, it's just a fragile ego problem. We place too much importance on what other people think while also having moments where we realize what they think doesn't matter. But it does... then it doesn't... etc.
You're probably also a perfectionist like me.
I'm a perfectionist in some aspects of my life, though pretty much anything that I am with is somehow related to how people view me.
What the fuck is the solution to this? I have a decent social life, and hobbies that I'm somewhat decent at, but it doesn't seem to help.
When you find a solution please notify me ASAP, thank you
This is me. I feel like I'm good looking some days then really critical of myself on others. What do you guys think?
Only got absolute shit tier phone camera here, throws off my skin colour, and my eyes are actually blue, but here ya go.
Any advice would be great, too.
You've got a really defined jawline, but you'd be much, much better off just buzzing it off, balding is the main issue there.
Nah, my hair's normally better than that, I just didn't bother styling it at all today, because I wasn't going anywhere.
Out of curiosity, any styles you'd recommend though?
Has long as your white.
You can take a stroll to the hood and pickup and 6/10 black girl.
Heres a pretty recent one
Thanks anon, it's insane how little a compliment like that can change how I'll feel for the next couple days.
Just gotta try to find ways to define myself outside how I look I guess.
Definitely stressed me out, but there's nothing bad that can really come from it, even if someone knew you, they're going to be people who browse here as well, and aren't going to judge.
a lot of
>hey, I noticed you had a (pet), he looks really cute, do you have any more pictures?
>hey there, I saw that you liked (book). I thought that was pretty neat. Do you read a lot of books by him? I'm a pretty big fan myself
and tinder is
>hi there, (question about university)
>(question about topic she posted in profile)
basically trying to get the conversation going and find common interests, the same way I try to make friends, which usually doesn't work either since I haven't had any in years
my reputation is already dirt
what could possibly happen to it by having a pic of me surface on 4chan?
could I possibly have worse luck with women than now? no
could I have less friends? no
could I have worse luck in jobs? probably not unless something drastically bad happens
GET THE FUCK OUT CHAD
I don't know what to tell you anon, that all sounds very normal on your end.
Maybe try something out of the norm or something "more interesting" (can even be a lie) just to get replies? Not like you have anything to lose.
What can I say other than you must just have really shitty luck?
Tinder is really based on where you live. I never bothered with it, I'm not really one for casual type stuff, and I'm terrible at relationships, but I've known maybe one person that's got more than a couple matches interested in anything more than just getting validation, and that's including chad sort of people.
People generally have better luck in real life, from what I've noticed, unless they don't get many opportunities to socialise.
