Beauty- It’s not skin-deep……

Filed under: My Life — happychick @ 6.38p04

I consider myself an "inner beauty". This is usually the term used by ugly people to make themselves feel better, but this is not the case here. You see, I've never been one of the "beautiful people"- good looks avoided me up until this year{plus, it's amazing what a bit of eyeliner will do}. Now that I've "blossomed into a young adult" {as my mother puts it}, I am often refered to as "hot".

I'm not going to pretend this doesn't flatter me- I mean, what teenage girl doesn't want older guys perving on her once in a while? But sometimes, especially now, it gets a little too much, and I feel slightly self-indulgent.

I don't deserve this sort of attention. These guys don't know me, they just like my body and my pretty face. I don't dress provocatively- I don't ask for their staring eyes, I don't lead them on- I've never been a good flirt, and honestly, I take after my Mum when I wonder; "Do they not know women their own age?"

The point is, I think it's wrong to be liked for your looks. Call me a hypocrit{ the eyeliner and flat stomach thing}, but I just don't like it. I have a boyfriend, and I like him. And he likes me- for me. It's amazing how ugly some "beautiful" people can look after you have a conversation with them. xx chick



  1. I have never seen a picture of you, but there is an image I see when I read what you write. It is a truely beautiful young woman. Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes to the bone….stolen from Redd Foxx. No way are you ugly. 😀

  6. Hi, Nice post. I must say looks are deceptive. Sometimes a good looking person are so dumb and boring. Inner beauty should be there to both beautiful and ugly people. For commited relationships, inner beauty is must.
