thanks for the advice everyone. i really apprieciate it
i put my picture on one of the rating sites, and i didnt get any negative feedback thank goodness. i took a risk doing it, because if i found out i was perceieved as ugly, i would probably have been devastated!
most of my problems do lie in self confidence, and also i am not very good at reading body language from guys. i usually second guess myself and dont believe he coud like me. i need to work on that.
