HottJoeYeah, right. I bet you're a 6 or 7, minimum. There's no way a 2 or a 3 could write such self-assured posts.
Honestly if I were a 6 or 7 minimum I would be more than happy to have a profile picture.
The reason I chose 2 or 3 is because those were the two numbers I've heard people actually grade me.
Believe it or not there are perks to being considered ugly.
I feel other parts of my personality are a lot more refined and stronger simply because I've had to rely on it since I cannot rely on my looks.
The friends I do have I feel are genuine (you can never be 100% sure but I at least hope so) since it's not like they HAD to be friends with an ugly person.
I do know that it is a possibility they are happy to be friends with me simply because being around me makes them look wayyy better, but at least when I'm in their company they're polite so I just count my blessings.
At least being ugly serves as some kind of perk for them as well.
I'm not really self assured, I'm just a realistic person and am happier receiving realistic words rather than sympathetic ones.
At the end of the day, everybody will belong to some kind of statistic and one of the statistics I happen to belong to is one generally labelled by society as aesthetically 'ugly'.
I don't fight it because I just accept my place in that particular statistic.
There are some people born with great looks and there are people who aren't born attractive.
I accept that about myself not for confidence's sake but for reality's sake and so in reality, I have to be okay with that because that's where I fit.
There's a certain amount of degree that you can control (such as diet, exercise, or plastic surgery) and the other parts you just have to realise you're stuck with it and it's fine because at least you belong somewhere.
