PS. @comatosebaby's answer may sound pretty harsh, but they're actually right. This is how the world works.

Tbh I don't think they were harsh, but I think they were highly inaccurate.

You don’t have to be pretty.
Not gonna lie, it helps. You just have to stay in your lane or settle for someone not as attractive.
As for being more attractive?
Grow hair long. It’s easier to look pretty with long hair rather then short.
Makeup. Not western make up, look into Asian makeup styles like Korean. They tend to be more natural and sweet looking compared to the sexy instragram makeup.
I always try to make my eyes look big and doe-y, when ever I wear circle lenses (contact lenses that are bigger) I always get compliments. Just don’t get any crazy colors, you want to look naturally beautiful.
Other then that, having a good body helps tremendously, at least where I am. Most of my female peers have, as my insensitive aunt calls it. “Already having a mom body”
The difficult thing is finding men you actually like - . -


This is terrible advice wtf. And none of it is true. It’s sad to think the only thing of worth you can offer someone is your physical body.

im sorry, no offense but this is not going to get you a healthy and genuine love relationship.

beauty is temporary and the only reason to care for yourself and do makeup or whatever is bc you feel good about it and think you deserve it and want it.

if you dont want long hair, dont let it grow to get a man, it will only get you a man who decides love over long or short hair.
that is such a sad and toxic mindset..
the only reason to grow long hair should be that you want it.

not to be rude but if you think this is „highly inaccurate“ then im sorry but you‘re heading for unhappiness.

a healthy relationship is based on mutual respect and that doesnt come from looks, and honestly assuming that a man will only like you for your looks, body, hair whatever is just as degrading.
men are humans too and some of them actually have a heart and brain and as much as it hurts to be reduced to looks it hurts to be reduced to „only being able to like you for looks“

but if you assume that, thats your decision and you just have know where it will lead you. it is very very sad if you dont as yourself whaat you want and just try to attract someone.

my beauty tip is: look at pictures, get inspired, find an idol, think about what you admire in others and be who you think is good.
i dont say dont care for yourself.. self care is self love.

by not being yourself you will attract someone who doesnt like you for yourself. that is a perfect recipe for unhappiness and its not sustainable at all.

Honestly, best thing you can do is find someone at your least attractive and glow up afterwards, for yourself. I met my partner 20 lbs ago when I had dermatological issues and weak hair bc of my thyroid issues. I have taken care of myself over the past year and look and feel better, but I also know that I have someone by my side who doesn’t care if I look a little shitty from time to time - they fell in love with me at my worst.

im sorry about your ex.. he was a dick tbh.

about being "pretty" tho...i think you dont have to change yourself at all. just take care of personal hygene and thats it. every person is unique and every person has its own idea about what pretty is and what attracts them.
(lets not forget about other qualities that are not visual that attract).

but if you also need a self confidence boost, you could try getting a manicure, a haircut etc. ☺️

Idk Korean makeup trends are creepy. If you need to paint on a childlike face for a guy to take interest in you, then that’s a seriously unsettling situation. This whole trend of grown women or teens adopting this over the top cutesy aesthetic was always strange to me. Fine if you wanna do it for cosplay purposes or fun at home, but to attract a serious partner? Girl.

I second everyone saying a dog. Having a boyfriend is not that great, and it sounds like you’re lonely. Dogs are way better for companionship and love.

Be the good girl you always have to be.

I agree that a well maintained physical appearance is important, but that should not be the only thing. Personality is important: having interests, being able to hold conversations, and values that show the other person you're more than your physical looks. Otherwise you're just fuck buddies.
