There is a girl who works at this restaurant that FI and I go to regularly and she is drop. dead. gorgeous. I just wonder what it’s like to be so beautiful. And I wonder if my FI looks at her and wishes that he could sleep with her or that I was that beautiful.
I do the best with what I’ve got, but I’m never going to be gorgeous. Does anyone else deal with these feelings?

@JLR1982: Gorgeous is as gorgeous does lady….whatever that waitress looks like, she don’t look like you…poor thing

@JLR1982: ugh. 100. %. of. the. time. Not very healthy, I know. But I wonder the same things…

@JLR1982: Yep! I totally feel that way sometimes. But as @Nona99 said, gorgeous is as gorgeous does. I just try to remind myself that I’m beautiful in my own way.

Most drop-dead gorgeous people I know…
(generalization ahead! stop reading if generalizations offend you, gorgeous people out there!)
…including my own sister, are kind of bitchy because they’re used to basically unconsciously or consciously manipulating people with their looks and/or getting everything they want. So I think all we normal-to-nice-looking people kind of dodged a bullet, honestly.

@JLR1982: I bet this is what your FI thinks about you

@housebee: aww, haha.
@Nona99: I am quite sure she’s relieved she doesn’t look like me 😛

@JLR1982: That’s just about enough of THAT young lady….you may not feel it, but you are GORGEOUS…I’ll guarantee it….thinking anything else is a total waste of time.

@housebee: I second that. I bet your fiance thinks exactly those things about you!!
Plus, I would bet my left arm that the girl you saw thinks the same thing about other women. We all think the grass is greener on the other side, but every women has traits she is self-conscious about or doesn’t like.
Unfortunately, our lovely society says we should all have the dainty hands & feet, light/no hair of chinese woman, blue caucasian eyes, mediterrean tans, big pouty lips, slender face, Beyonce’s behind, indian long hair, large breasts, curvy hips but a tiny waist…be 6 feet tall, 100 lbs… and then airbrushed…
It isn’t really the society which helps us feel good about ourselves, does it?

@JLR1982: I am not everyones cup of tea for sure and im sure some people would find me ugly but ive been told im gorgeous enough times to know im attractive to some.
To me, it doesnt mean anything, like seriously, what does it mean?? You go into a group of gorgeous girl …. yayyy!!! not!!! Theres always a girl out there that is more gorgeous than you so i imagine they feel exactly the same way you do. Yea I used my looks to get by, what did it get me, temporary superficial satisfation until the next pretty thing walked along.
Out of all the relationships Ive had my FI the only one who hasnt treated me like some air head trophy which is cool at the moment but then the excitement fades. Id say even my dad has treated me like that. My FI knows the real me under all the hair and make up that makes me feel so amazing.
Please dont lose sight of that, that is whats important. Looks will never get a man to stay and any real man knows its not going to make him happy. Hes marrying you because you make him happy. One more thing … my FI always says when im putting myself down …. your body is like a house, talk about it well and it will sell, point out the flaws and less people want it.

@Nona99: That’s what my mom has ALWAYS said to me! “Sarah Elizabeth, pretty is as pretty does.” I try my best to live up to that!

Your FI is with you, if he wanted to sleep with someone like that he wouldnt be with you. I’m sure you are AMAZINGLY GORGEOUS but you also are hunble because you dont realize how pretty you are.
