    Probably not. I'd think I was okay looking, but I wouldn't make the leap to pretty.

    i think i was avg. nothign special look wise. But since i walk around wearing a headbadn with cat ears, i would probably do a double take and start up a convo with myself.

    I probably wouldn't notice me.

    No, I wouldn't. Not because I think that I'm ugly but I'm average looking and blend in and don't really stand out.

    Maybe if I was on a pretty day. I would notice at least. Where I live, I look different.

    Oh heavens no. I don't blend in thanks to my curly grey hair, but otherwise I'm just an average looking Italian lady.

    Probably, but I tend to think most people are pretty, or at least have an attractive feature or two.

    Pretty enough. I've always been pretty enough, not a great beauty. I'm very OK with that.
  • LotsawavesLotsawaves Posts: 8,716Registered Users Curl Connoisseur
    RCW, I saw your pic on FB & you are very pretty. Maybe more cute, but would definitely turn heads.

    Mixny, sugah, you are a supermodel! I what faint from the sight of your inner and outer beauty.

    Doll,
    You need to go back and see your pictures from some else's perspective. You are effing beautiful and sexy!
  • jeepcurlygurljeepcurlygurl Posts: 19,681Registered Users, Curl Ambassador Curl Virtuoso
    Just goes to show that 'pretty' is subjective. I've seen many of you on facebook lately and you are all cute/pretty/gorgeous to me.
    speckla - you are like a pin up girl. You do NOT blend in!

    It would depend on my mood. You'd be surprised how many women I think are pretty or beautiful if they are smiling or seem happy.

  • SunshineGrrlSunshineGrrl Posts: 3,823Registered Users Curl Neophyte
    If I actually make an effort, then I guess I'm pretty enough.

    I was picturing myself at my best effort.

    Probably not, not ugly, but not noticeable. Average.

    I would think I was an average-looking, seemingly approachable person.

    I think it would depend, on both my mood and on what effort, if any, I put into my appearance that day. Most days I think I fall into the category of average, but when I make an effort (do my hair, wear some makeup), I think I could be considered pretty.
