your name is "WantoImprove" but there is no need to improve lol! you are a handsome guy! your nose is "masculine" and it looks fine with the rest of your features. I'm not just saying this just to be nice, it is the God-honest truth! Dont go under the knife if you're not sure you need to, - and you definitely dont need to!

also-- please answer my thread "in your opinion.." Thank you!!

I think when some people give compliments, they are just being "nice." Not saying that is the reason you said it, but it is difficult (for me) to perceive a genuine compliment.

And yeah, I have thought about experimenting with my hair, not sure what style I should go for though.
I don't know about everyone else but I'm not being nice. I really don't see anything to change and as previously said your cheek bones are to die for and you have a beautiful face. It sounds like you might have body dismorphic disorder. Think about it you are at a cosmetic surgery forum of course we will tell you if we think you need something done!

I'm not sure, really, about what I am thinking. You all have boosted my confidence a little bit, but I still have my doubts. For instance, I posted this on another PS forum, and two people said I could not look above average even with plastic surgery!

I appreciate the compliments, la_angel. And what you say makes sense. I guess if I had more to show for my looks on the dating scene, (I'm shy and have a hard time opening up to women), maybe I would be more confident. But obviously, that is a personal issue. That's no one's fault but my own.

As far as having BDD...it is possible.

Hello my friend WantToImprove,

la_ angel is absolutely correct (as usual). As a doctor of clinical health psychology (medical psych), yes, I would say BDD is a strong possibility, as I have suggested to you in a prior post. However, it does not have to be so detrimental. You need to find out what void you are tring to fill. Private message me, as I have some very helpful advice for you.

So, what motivation would girls have to say a pic is "So gross!" unless it were true? Apparently my pic got around and some guy at work showed it to these girls, that is the response I heard. Might sound really petty, but it got the message across.

The comments sound petty, juvenile, and above all irrelevant. You need to work on yourself, as if YOU are confident with your appearance, puerile commentary can be brushed off. If these individuals who mocked you are unhappy with you in other ways (i.e.:work performance and or/dont like you etc.) they might mock your appearance. It is the lowest "blow". I will PM you if you haven't PM'd me.

Definitely don't confuse lack of dating/experience with not being attractive. That has to do with your own personality and being shy is not a bad thing necessarily. But it sounds like you don't like being shy so I would say for that reason it is something you should work on.

I'm glad you admit that and don't feel guilty about it. When you think about it almost all of us in today's world have BDD to some degree, including myself. We analyze ourselves way more than other people do.

For real whoever said that is f**king nuts and jealous. That makes no sense at all and as my username says I do live in LA the most superficial place and have pretty high standards due to the culture I live in. Whoever said that is insane and jealous. I bet it was an old fat guy sitting at his computer in jealously or someone that is below average and trying to bolster their self confidence by putting you down, like Robyne mentioned people do that all the time.
