How Desirable Would You Say You Are?
 
# 1 : Thursday 29-1-2009 @ 11:45
 
 
Got an email this morning from Facebook about my "Social Profile" (I wasn't aware that I had one) and it told me that:

(My name) is more desirable than 82.5% of people
Global desirability ranking is 23,246 out of 45,636,105 people

Which I thought was rather funny. But it set me thinking. It is a common, although very possibly misconceived, view that men always believe themselves to be more attractive and desirable than they are but that women tend to downgrade themselves on how attractive and desirable they are.

So Im curious, on a scale of one to ten, would you say you were hot shit or more like the backass of a dumpster?
Do you feel that how you are perceived in these terms has ever affected your life in any way, whether through work or in your love life?
Are you comfortable about your level of desirability?
And do you feel that how you are perceived in these terms is important to you?

Myself, Id say I was a comfortable 7 out of ten, although the facebook rating puts me at an 8.
I have worked jobs before where how you looked was one of the main criteria, so I know that this has had a significant bearing on me! Furthermore, I am shallow enough to admit that I would be more likely in my job to employ a better looking person as it makes work easier and also is better for the old tips!!
I would of course love to look like a film star, and am seriously thinking about the teeth whitening. I am also a little insecure about my body so have been doing a hardcore exercise regime of late, which not surprisingly has boosted my confidence ten fold!
I know also that I take time to consider how I am presented to the outside world, so clearly how I am perceived is of some importance to me.

And before some of ye start, this is purely a thread out of curiosity, and yes, I know that these things shouldn't matter, but they do so lets accept that!!!

My perception of how good I look varies from day to day. I know that I'd get alot more looks from the opposite sex when I'm wearing work clothes(suit) as opposed to my lounging/after work clothes. Overall though, I'd feel I'm a solid 6..

Ya, of course. I remember one teacher in Primary school stood the lot of us up and asked one of the lads to go around and pick the ugliest kid in the class. Dunno why! But anyway, he picked me!! I can laugh about it now, but at the time it had a profound effect on me!

Are you comfortable about your level of desirability?

Not always. But I know what I look like. I've no illusions.

And do you feel that how you are perceived in these terms is important to you?

With members the opposite sex I'd have to say yes..

On a scale from 1 to ten I'd give myself a 7.

Do you feel that how you are perceived in these terms has ever affected your life in any way, whether through work or in your love life? Of course, I am tall (well above average for most ladies)So it has had both positive and negative effect on my life, sometimes compliments about my height, my legs . Other times just plain insults, slagging etc, people have called me giant, and stuff…Im not THAT tall!! So of course it effects your life…school, work, love…

Are you comfortable about your level of desirability? I am now, I’ve learned that this is how I look and nothing will change, I’m no supermodel, but if I’m sexy on the inside then that will make me feel sexy on the outside too…. I’ve learned to love the good features I have and balance that off against the features I’m not so keen on, so as not to spiral into depression…

And do you feel that how you are perceived in these terms is important to you? I used to think it mattered a lot more than it actually does, I think it helped that my ex thought I was THE sexiest thing going and that helped me to think that if one person thinks that, then maybe more people would/could think it too….if that makes sense (it does in my head) so now I just get on with it…

id say about a 6 for me.i know im not ugly but id never say i was an oil painting by no means.ive been complimented in the past but i tend to have a lot of self esteem issues so compliments,as nice as they are,make me feel a little bit uncomfortable.id love to be like a lot of girls i know,they arent afraid to say,yeah im good looking and not ashamed of the fact.to have that confidence would be great!!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so what you think of yourself means nothing if some might consider you to be a minger.

We are as desirable as we think we are. I think people who are drop dead gorgeous can be undesirable and people who are not so good looking can be desirable. The key is how one sees themselves. Confidence is key. If someone has confidence it is more than likely they are happier, take care of themselves and so forth.

Never a truer word has been spoken.

Indeed!


I'm still struggling to get rid of my excess weight but the truth is I'm happier now then when I was skinny and younger (just 3 years ago I was a size 32, now I'm more like 38-40). I'm also getting a lot more action now!

All because I'm happier, happier in my job and happier in the place I live.

It depends actually. One minute I can be overly confident and cocky, and the next I can be so depressed and insecure. So my answer will change every day of the week.

Right now - I'll give myself a five.
