Do pretty people make you uncomfortable?



The Adonis

*Edit: Image removed*

Hey people.

Beauty is an illusion; we humans have constructed beauty.

What I mean is that does the mere presense of those whom you consider attractive make you feel uneasy because their looks blow you away. You end getting shy around them. You may even get sexually aroused. You'll feel ashamed feeling that way. You getting butterflies in your stomach when they talk to you, they're near you, or when they touch you; it can be a slight touch.

And that you want to be with them yet at the same time you can't because you have social anxiety; you're mentally ill. You know that they would prefer someone as well; someone whom consider attractive and who has an extroverted personality.

No; they've never made me more uncomfortable than anyone else does. Strange, considering I have major issues with my looks.

On an unrelated note, I can totally see that girl's nipples.

Maybe, a little bit. I think it's jealousy. In high school I had a pretty good looking "friend", and girls would only talk to me because they wanted me to tell them how to approach this guy.
Ugh, that always made me mad.

i was lucky to have pretty parents so typically I don't get intimidated. however, I dress like ****, look pale as ****, don't eat healthily, don't work out, and sit on a computer all the time so I don't really take advantage of it.

I have found that most good looking people are actually quite nice (well I've seen way more good looking women than men, so maybe its not true for guys) and as long as you return their radiant smiles, their positive attitudes (cuz they're hot and they know it) radiate to you.

Not more than others. I am only made more uncomfortable in social situations when I feel really bad for someone.

Nice nips.

I don't think so. Beauty is more natural to me. I'd say superficial-acting people who spend much of their time focused on their appearance slightly annoy me.

Only if she/he is skinnier than me then I feel very uncomfortable in my skin..usually it's just the persons overall vibe, not beautiful per se but just the vibe.

Only until I talk to them. Once we get into conversation all the anxiety goes away

i feel weak and helpess around pretty people. in addition, if they interact with me, i will feel anxious (more anxious than if it was a normal looking person).

I like observing them from afar, but once they look in my direction I get nervous and stare at the ground lol.

“But who can say what's best? That's why you need to grab whatever chance you have of happiness where you find it, and not worry about other people too much. My experience tells me that we get no more than two or three such chances in a life time, and if we let them go, we regret it for the rest of our lives.”
