Well, I think at this point, it probably doesn't much matter because anyone who is my age will look like they're almost 50 (most likely unless they're lucky).

Back in the day, I would have been happy to merely look average. I mean, no one ever said "Wow you're ugly!" but the girls weren't beating down my door either. And they're not usually shy about it. Not all of them anyway. When no one ever comments on your looks or flirts with you, you just know. Even average looking guys got the occasional glance. I could probably count the number of times a girl ever flirted with me or gave me the look.

It doesn't bother me anymore but it used to. I'd have probably given anything to look like just about any other guy I knew. Because (almost) all of them had flirts or dates whether they were actively pursuing or not. Whether they were extroverted or shy.

So yeah. I'd have still had every other problem I had but it would have been at least some sunshine somewhere.

I actually don't feel comfortable sharing that here, but maybe I will later dunno.

I have loads of answers to this thread actually anyway.

I will go with the mostly ****post answer and say something like Illidan Stormrage.

I dunno; I don't really mind the way I look even though I don't think anyone has ever found me attractive. I don't think it matters what you look like, if you have SA or low self-esteem or whatever.

I'd mainly want to change my weight, although I don't even want to be thin or muscular. Just a little chunky, instead of obese. Maybe with a more attractive face, whatever that means.

An ideal weight and toned. Perhaps it's not the look but the state of my body, is all.

Probably wouldn't be able to imagine even if I wanted to. Not saying this out of acceptance, per se, but just the simple fact that I've navigated with what I really have even in the midst of utter disapproval and with some approvals. Even if I tried to look like some model it wouldn't really get me much further than where I currently stand right now anyway.

I'd love to have the physique of an olympic swimmer.

square-lipped rhino, broken tree, peacock, archaeopteryx, and maybe a shoebill, or a fat Maine cat.

Or just a skin walker who can shapeshift into ugly stuff.

Not in the mood for cute things atm -_-

the truth may vary

Ideally, I wouldn't want to be human but since if I had to keep being a human then I would basically change every single aspect of my physique, The things I would prioritize, though, are my height (wish I were taller), my skin (color and that it wouldn't be so sensitive so I could use make up), my hair (I would rather have straight hair) and my feet which I wish were just a little bit bigger (so tired of buying in the children section hahaha).
