Are you good looking?

Postby fairydandy » Sat Aug 11, 2018 8:47 pm

On a scale of attractiveness, where do you think you are at? 10 is gorgeous, 1 is less so.

Have your looks affected your life?

I'd rate myself at about a 7.5, but I chose an 8, because us males are always adding a few extra digits to ourselves here or there. Know what I'm sssshhhhhhaaaaayin', son son!

Not very, thanks to genes, illness and stress. It took a toll on me.

I think my ginger hair, blue eyes and cheshire grin have worked in my favour, especially the last two.

Those aside, I do need to put on weight and get me teeth sorted.

a man needs to look manly. short hair with a front crest, a 5 mm beard and a "slim fit" appearance.

having a BMW (the wet pussy car) adds a few points to the scale.

I guess that makes me a 12 out of 10 8)

I'll go with a 7.5 out of 10 for myself. I'm generally happy with my appearance. I guess, hey, there's a picture to the right over there, so judge for yourself! Except I've now got a beard to go along with that mustache, which I do think works for me. And also, there's a bit of grey hairs here and there that that picture doesn't capture....but I kinda dig that too.

But, with all that said... I kinda don't like this whole idea of rating looks. I mean, it's just fine for what we're talking about now. We can rate how we think we look, we can even talk about how attractive we find other people. She's a 9 out of 10, he's an 8 out of 10, blah blah blah, that's cool. But it just reminds me of those "incels* who we've talked about a few times before. One thing they always do that really grinds my gears is that they assign a "looks rating" to everyone and it's just like that's it, period. Like, they'll say something about how a man who is a 5 wouldn't stand a chance with a 9 or 10 woman. The thing they miss is always that maybe the woman thinks he's more than a 5, or maybe even he thinks she's not a 9 or 10. And of course, they dont even think that people could possibly be attracted to people for things other than looks. And there's also just no possibility in their minds that, for example, some girl they would think of as a 10 would be anything else to anyone. I know that's wrong if only from talking to my friends about what models or celebrities or whatever that we found attractive. Basically, I had a lot of conversations like this:

Me: Hey, guy who I'm drinking a beer with, I think this female celebrity is hot. What do you think?

Other Guy: She's kinda nasty, dude. But I like this woman who I know you don't like at all, so what do you say we get some more beer?

I guess I'm not too bad looking, but it hasn't helped me in any way.

Personality (attitude, self confidence etc.) goes a lot further, and that's something I've always lacked.

Fucking gorgeous, for an retired, overweight, balding 57 year old.

1). Beauty is ALWAYS In the eye of the beholder.

2). Beauty is only skin deep.

Invariably, everyone who says of themselves that they are extremely good looking, is an absolutely selfish conceited cunt inside. It's like when Ritchie Blackmore claimed he was the world's best guitarist. You just don't say that of yourself, even if in your opinion, you are.

And no, I'm not. I don't think zero was an option, so I didn't vote.

It is odd that it would never be considered arrogant to say you’re very tall or very fast or strong or whatever, but self-disclosures about looks and intelligence are considered taboo, given that all are mostly down to the genetic lottery anyway, and in no way an ‘achievement’.

As Freddie could have probably concurred, one man's meat, is sometimes another one's poison.

So, what's good looking is subjective, whereas your height, build or strength is quantifiable.

Prince Charles obviously believed that Camilla was more attractive than Diana. I think the former looks more like you'd probably want to bang a saddle on it, than a set of fluffy handcuffs.
