I really am not trying to sound conceited and brag to everyone that i'm pretty, I have better things to do. But adults always say that i'm very pretty and that I have the body and face to be a model and everything. But boys just don't seem to notice me. Like if you looked like a model, wouldn't alot of guys like you? For example, [I DONT LIKE MY COUSIN BEFORE U READ THIS!], my aunt was like fixing my boy cousin's hair and was like "oh there now you look cute, i'd date you if I was your age" then she is like "jamie would date you, if she wasn't your cousin" [im jamie] He's like "HAHA yeah but I wouldn't date HER" Then another time at school this girl is like "you're really pretty" and a guy was sitting with her and he just laughed. Why don't guys think i'm hot? i'M confused! By the way, i'm going into 8th grade.

However harsh it sounds towards them (i'm sorry if any of you are reading this, granted you're not all like this8-)) but guys at that age are only looking for a girl to do things with and experiment. They're not always looking for the 'pretty' girls, but usually the easy girls. The reason adults say you're pretty is because they're looking at you through their eyes, mature eyes. I used to get so many complements off older people (18 and up) because i looked more mature and developed than what guys my age where looking for (short skirts and skinny girls) and i had basically no guys what so EVER after me! Now that i'm in the 'older teen' group i get more looks and complements off guys my own age because they've grown up and actually want a normal girlfriend (as they care more about us now:|). To be honest i wouldn't worry about boyfriends until you're older, just go with the flow. Trust me when i say girls change.. The really pretty girls now probably wont be so pretty in the future!
But i have to say on the other hand [After i've offended half the male population (sorry:P)] that girls see some other girls as pretty when guys don't see the same. To us we see the blonde, skinny girl as 'perfect' but a lot of the guys actually go 'she really isn't that great you know' after you spend hours telling them how much prettier she is than you are!
I seemed to have offended everyone here:| But i'm not trying too. I'm sure you are extremely pretty, but i wouldn't get to caught up in people's positive comments or you'll get all annoyed on why no-one YOU like is saying the same. It's all on personal taste. We're all pretty to someone, you just have to find them.
You have so much time, and you're going to changed in shape and size and looks so much in the next few years, even if you don't notice it yourself. I wouldn't worry so much about it, the older you get the more interest guys will show to you, they just don't know what they're look for.

Actually no, don't do that you might poke an eye out then there'll be hell to pay gettin arrested, warnings, hassle from their parents.... not worth all that. Just ignore them instead and be happy with how you are. If these immature brats don't see how beautiful you are what's it matter as long as you see it and those close to you see it. :] [ ammo's advice column | Ask ammo A Question ]
