You know, when I was in High school, I compare myself a lot, oh I was so good at comparing, that little by little, I destroy all my self-esteem and confidence. When I was in school, You can’t really call me “hot.” Since I had freckles, red hair and was too short and thin, and yes, I wore a lot of black, a lot.
However, I noticed that as I got older, my style changed, and all the things that I hated about myself as a teenager made me attractive and outstanding as an adult.
Most time, I usually think of myself of the nerdy, gothy, awkward teenager, who no guy gave a second look or think as their crush. The truth is that thoughts like this do happen to a lot of us.
As teenagers, we’re always complaining that we are too tall, too short, too thick, too thin, too quiet, too loud, too… well, everything. And the way people thought of us back then can really stick with us as adults, even from little mistakes and jests from friends.
This brings me to the burning question: Are You Hot and Don’t Even Realize it?
The short answer to this question is: yes!
Because you’re all beautiful in your own wonderful and unique ways. You’ll probably think this sounds corny and cliche to you, but it’s true. Give me just a few minutes to show you, a few signs that you are way more attractive than you Ever think:
Signs You’re Way More Attractive.
People look up when you walk by.
This is one vital sign you’re attractive. Have you noticed that when you walk by someone, people kind of look up at you? This is what is called presence, and you have it. You turn heads because you’re attractive just by being who you are. Not by trying to imitate someone or being who you are not.
You Are Not Complimented Lot.
Another sign that you are way hotter and beautiful than you think, is that Women and men don’t necessarily compliment you a lot. A lot of women and Men, including me, always and usually assume that you know you’re hot, so you don’t get a lot of compliments to bluff your head. This sometimes gives people the notion and makes them think that they are not hot, unfortunately! which is quite sad and untrue.
Now, these are compliments which are usually off-hand. Like some persons will compliment you in an off-hand manner in similar sentence. “Oh, but you get that a lot since you’re so [insert compliment here], I bet!” Em… I’m sorry, but no?
You Surprise People With Your Insecurities.
This is Me so much, and I guess you also fall in this bracket. I once complained to a great friend about several of my insecurities, and he laughed, and laughed and laughed. I was calmly waiting on him to confirm or atleast, say a little thing nice to me about my insecurities, and you know what he said?
How I wish AM like You.
Now, this is a guy who I think is one of the most handsome guys I have ever seen.
Have you noticed that some people are shocked when you tell them one of your (physical) insecurities? We often hate things about ourselves, which most times, make us stick out, but that’s often what makes us attractive, so people don’t understand when we’re insecure about it. Like you hear someone say “Ugh, I hate my eyes, they’re too big!” and there you are, wishing you have their big sexy eyes.
You may even think they are trying to draw attention to themselves, but these can seem like the oddest statement to someone who hadn’t been called “frog eyes” for their entire childhood.
Ever noticed that more than once, you’ve had a hanger-on on a night out? OK, it is true that sometimes these guys are weird for the sake of being weird, but at other times, you’ve simply mesmerized them and they can’t help but gaze at you, while you are awkwardly trying to ignore them while sipping on your drink.
Not Dating In Little Time
I have known some persons who even a few months without some action, mean a lot to them. If you stay for a few month without dating, this does not mean you are unattractive, since you are often in relationships, or dating someone, or someone’s into you. And you kind of think that’s normal. It is also normal to know that you can stay a few month without dating anyone.
Conclusively, you should always strive to be your true self, and this is one of the most important factor that makes you irresistible. While you’re off living your life, trying to be happy, trying to be your authentic self, people are watching on and admiring you for your beauty – inside and out.
