Hey M Girls!
We have a BRAND NEW spin on the daily advice column on mmm-mag.com. Each day at 8:00 PM/EST we'll post a reader question and have our M Girl answer it!! Today, we're talking feeling insecure about your looks!!
M Reader Sweet13 asked:
I feel very self conscious about my looks. I feel like no boy will ask me out because I wear glasses and have acne that I can't control. A lot of girls at my school are being asked out, and I want to get asked out, too! Any advice?
And M Girl's answer is:
"I never used to get asked out either and I constantly stressed myself out about, thinking I wasn't as pretty as all of my friends who always had BFs and guys like them. But looking back at it now, I totally see that it wasn't worth the sadness. I stayed patient, and in the end I was the one with a serious BF who I care deeply about! Everything happens for a reason. Maybe the guy you'd date would break your heart, or you're just not ready for any type of relationship yet. That's what you should be thinking, not that you're unattractive -- because you're beautiful! Definitely don't stress about this. You don't want to start having boyfriends at such a young age anyway -- being a single gal is SO much fun, too! Just hang in there and enjoy your time as a solo gal with your BFFs -- and one day, you'll find that perfect someone to be happy with...forever!"
