anyone else here feel fucking disgusting and ugly 99% of the time, meanwhile people around you seem to find you attractive and compliment you pretty often?

i feel extremely attractive all of the time

sometimes i get a lot of compliments sometimes i don't

Tried a small handful of things on today, looked like complete shit and went home empty handed. Wanted to cry a bit.

yes, except I'm genuinely ugly and I can't remember ever being complimented

No, i am ugly, no matter how im trying - im still 3/10, nobody likes me, because of this i dont have friends, girlfriend and even my parrents dont like me.

It got better than before but I still feel like a disgusting fat fuck. I get the occasional compliment but I usually pass it off as some sick joke and go back to the selfhate.
>>
>>10728558
Yes. Whenever I'm trying on new clothes the look good as long as I don't see my face. Meanwhile my gf tells me all the time how good I look and I know she has quite high standards for men so there has to be some truth to that. I just think my face is ugly. I have struggled with zero self confidence for like 10 years now so that might be it.

Th-Thanks /fa/. I just recently decided to hop back on the wagon after two years. I feel like I have a better handle now, I'm looking to lose smaller amounts of weight in short term goals as opposed to "lol i want 2 b fa skelly." I still have those days where I feel like I'm 800 pounds and disgusting though.

>>10729176
I just hate my legs the rest's ok I'm truly happy with my legs when I starved myself but then friends and family started making remarks about how I looked so thin in the face (so happy though even though it's messed up) but starving yourself doesn't look good on the rest of my body
>>
>>10729193
>from a fashion standpoint you are objectively wrong

From Hedi's cock standpoint he is objectively wrong.

From the fashion standpoint >>10729176 is correct since 99% of all designers use ottermode models for MENS and not skellies.
>>
yeah I used to be fat. I spent a year getting /fit/ and now people tell me I'm looking very good (or, in some cases, that I'm anorexic or losing too much weight, joke's on them though, I'm going to get to go to their funeral when they die of a heart attack at 35). but when I look in the mirror or touch myself I just still see the fatass I used to be.

pictures of me genuinely surprise me. I legitimately don't expect what I see half the time.
>>
>>10728558
People comment that I look muscular quite a lot, but I really think I am average at best. I'm not fat, but I really don't think my body is anything noteworthy.

Had the same problem when I was 18-21. Found myself ugly, but people thought I was good looking.

Now I matured and I understand that I just look a certain way and that's it. And that look is a result of sports, diet, skincare and genetics. On the last one I can't change anything, you either like it or not. On the first three ones I can always change something, but If I'm fat f.e. then that's the result of a fat lifestyle - too much food and too little sports. And If I live such a lifestyle, then that's exactly the look I deserve to have, so why should I be upset about it? Same argument goes for all the other things.

Same goes for you anon, no matter how you look there will always be people who like it or dislike it - people who like or dislike you as a person even. So don't bother to appease anyone, just live a good life. And if you want to improve something about your looks, you can always start right now: Go exfoliate your face, eat less calories for the next dish, or go hit the gym. Every little bit you invest will improve your looks a little bit. (You should ofc google for proper skincare/mealplan/training instructions and get some understanding first).

>>10728558
I'm tall, not very fat, proportional and have a good face. People give me compliments all the time and I have a good looking GF.

I feel fat, dislike my face/hair and dislike my looks overall. It's odd because I know it isn't a realistic view of myself yet I still feel it.

I'm just gratefull clothes sit good on me and I have the money to buy stuff I like.

Don't worry, I'm 5"2" and 120lbs, if it makes you feel better I'm fatter than you
>>
Yes.

I have kind of come to the conclusion that I must be attractive because I have attractive friends, get attention from attractive girls and it sure as hell can't be my personality.

However, I know for a fact I was an ugly child/teen, and identifying as an ugly person from a young age has done damage I feel to be irreversible. I genuinely think I look like shit but others don't seem to think so. Oh well.

I'm exactly the same. Attractive people tend to group up, and all my friends are pretty attractive. I get 7-8/10's and have a pretty shat personality.
I wasn't that fat growing up, but I was definitely considered chubby. I lost weight and kind of like my body now, but my face ruins it. Meh.

You should believe you're a land whale, chubby.
No for realsies though you're probably just skinny-fat. No muscle tone, makes you look fat no matter how thin you are, cause whatever flesh that you can grab is soft and pure fat.

man i fucking hate you i'm a natural skeleton and i wish i could be above 18 bmi.

Literally ONLY /fa/ and SLP models cherish being so abnormally thin, you're too indulged in /fa/ culture if you think for one second that "wow this is where i want to be in life, i want to impress some autistic kids who can't dress on the internet by being skinny" do you know hwo fucking stupid that is??

I'm trying to at least get buff and rich, could always just get a mailorder bimbo from russia then and live like a king while I yell at the tv and she's talking on phone to Babuschka about how life in capitalist-land is not what she expected
>>
>>10732316
I read that mail order bride services these days are basically just like online dating -- you can literally get rejected by a poor girl from a 3rd world country that you are offering the world to if she doesn't think you're attractive enough (or rich enough).
>>
>>10732256
Do you know someone who lifts? You can also search online for some tips on how to start with lifting. It's not that hard, search online for a routine and follow that routine combined with a diet if necessary.
>>
>>10732321
That's only if you try to get someone worthy of having as a partner. Someone who is not just sexy but also smart and whatever.

However, I don't think that's realistic for me. The best I can hope for is either a hooker from Thailand that turns ugly af the minute she turns 30 (if she isn't ugly af already) that'll end up stabbing me to death, or a loving (at least good at faking it) and mildly retarded russian mail order bride.

You could just do what I did: get a membership at cheap gym inhabited by the scum of the earth (niggers, wt-anabola freaks etc), spend some time there just creeping people out while you watch how they do it.

Then just get a membership at some fancy gym where all the successful people go and rock it. It'll be more expensive, but you'll be there with regular guys and hot girls, who'll at their worst just be kind to you when they see you're a newbie, or fat as fuck, because they're already used to all the feminized men they met in university/their office jobs.

Don't eat shit food folks, then there will be no need to starve yourselves.
>>
>>10728558
I eat extremely healthy to the point where it's kind of obnoxious, don't smoke, drink or do drugs, and I still have terrible skin and hair. It destroys my confidence and makes me feel really gross

I'm only 22 and it seems like my face is already starting to sag. I've got gnarly nasolabial folds that make me look 50, plus a ton of acne scars and also reoccurring acne, all paired with an uneven skin tone and rough texture. Supplements haven't helped, nor have any topical skin care products

People always make positive comments about my looks and I've been called beautiful by some, so I don't know if it's all in my head and I'm just seeing something completely different when I look in the mirror. It's really starting to fuck with me though

It doesn't matter what you think. You're worse the SJW tumblrinas who don't "think" being obese is unhealthy.

you are objectively wrong

it's not a matter of debate

it's not a matter of opinion

your opinion is incorrect. YOU are incorrect.

Grow some thick skin and stop being a fucking pussy.

read the sticky of /fit/. Who are you kidding, you're always going to be skinnyfat. You have to have all this information breast fed to you like a little baby. You don't even want to do moderately difficult work to achieve a better body.

Have fun never being /fa/ or /fit/.

That's because the majority of designer shit recommended here is for ladybois. The only people that appreciate that style are the .00001% of humanity who think that $1000 "different" ill-fitting hipster clothes are true fashion.

Sometimes, simpler is better. Think for yourself rather than getting all your advice from one source.

i've been coming to /fa/ sporadically since 2008 and this meme about being manorexic is still a thing? jesus lol. you guys aren't fucking runway models, stop starving yourselves. you look like shit. if you genuinely think you look better being out of shape, there's no saving you.
