My nerdy looks are not attractive

I don’t think glasses are necesarily aging, and I’ve seen some damn sexy people sporting frames!  That said, there’s nothing wrong with mixing up your look a bit, especially if it’s been a while since a change.  why not get some disposable lenses to see if you like them and maybe go down to Sephora, get a makeover and diversify your color palette a bit.  I find that when I’m feeling blah, adding a few new products to my rotation really perks me up.

1st of all you have an awesome boyfriend who tells you to be yourself and whatever is more comfortable (My husband is the same way and I love him for it). 2nd, you need to get off social media especially if it makes you feel bad about yourself. However, if you feel like you’re ready for a change up then sure, ditch the glasses, try color contacts, drink lots of water to keep your face/skin hydrated and radiant. Whiten your teeth (I’ve been thinking about this one for myself) you’ll smile more. Whatever look you choose to go with, own it. Don’t worry so much what others think. Its a waste of time trying to please the peanut gallery. You matter most. That’s it.

Whoever made that comment is an ass.

Personally I feel that you can’t expect to look “sexy” all the time. I mix up my glasses and my contacts deoending on what activities I’m doing.

Alsp the sexiest thing is confidence. You had a great day You liked the pics and suddenly one loser says something mean and you are second guessing it all. 🙁

By all means experiment with your lool but please do what YOU like and not some other person 🙂

I wear my glasses the majority of the time, contacts only when I can’t wear glasses for whatever reason. I think they’re part of my “look” and can definitely be attractive! I don’t think that glasses age people at all, and I certainly don’t only feel sexy when I’m not wearing them. I’d recommend getting a new pair of glasses, maybe trying a different style etc from what you usually wear. Remember that other people’s opinions are just that, don’t let it get to you! Often there’s no truth behind mean comments.

Maybe just wear what you like without going for a “look?” I’ve worn glasses since I was six and got contacts at age 10. It’s literally never occurred to me to be going for a “nerdy look” when I wear my glasses, it’s usually just because my eyes are dry and need a break from contacts. Just get glasses that fit your face properly, and don’t try to go for some look.

bonniericca :  I don’t think wearing glasses automatically makes someone look “nerdy”. I rarely wear my glasses because I can see much better when I have my contacts in, but I’ve noticed over the years that I get a ton of compliments from men each time I wear them. Happened the other day at work when I wore them for the first time here.

I wouldn’t over think it and I think it’s rude for someone to comment on your photo saying you look old or aged, who does that? 

If you don’t like the way your current glasses look, maybe try out a new style. But wear what YOU like.

The only thing I think you need to change is your privacy settings. You be you, be yourself, because that’s what your boyfriend likes about you I’m sure. Whoever made that comment needs to not be your friend anymore. You need to be happy and comfortable in your own skin, that’s what matters the most.

I (stupidly, because I can’t wear contacts) didn’t wear my glasses for a few years when I was a teenager because they made me look “ugly” in my eyes (ha). I just had the wrong style of glasses, it turns out. Also, glasses are not inherently nerdy and nor are they aging!

I second the idea about going to Sephora to change up your look. Also consider different frames. I personally could not survive without my contacts, but I post plenty of selfies in my glasses as well, and it doesn’t make me look old or anything. You just need to freshen up your look a bit, I think, in order to make yourself feel more confident–NOT for them, but for yourself!

I think the right style and fit of glasses, and wearing them with confidence can definitely be sexy! I mix it up between glasses and contacts and my husband tells me all of the time that the “hot librarian” look drives him crazy.  So I absolutely believe they can be attractive.  If you want to try contacts go for it! If you wanna stick with the glasses, then why not go for a mini make over to make you feel your absolute best while wearing them, and I can guarantee that if you feel confident and sexy, anything you wear will come across that way as well.

Although I’ve never seen you, I bet you are beautiful and that’s one of the reasons why your bf loves you so much. He sees your beauty inside and out and that’s why he’s with you. Don’t doubt yourself. If you want to better yourself for you and you only, do things that make u feel good about yourself!! Other than that, try not to stress. Everyone is always too hard on themselves

I think I look hotter and younger with glasses, and (bonus) people assume I’m smart, which is important to me as a curvy natural blonde who wants to be taken seriously at work. I have some daily contacts that I wear very rarely if I have a function where I don’t want to wear glasses.
