Ugly anons, tell me about the impossible beauty standards you wish you could fulfill, how you wish you could look like and why, what you would do with your life if you managed to look like your ideal selves.
My beauty standard for myself is something like an older Tadzio from the 1971 Death in Venice movie, a beautiful, androgynous young man, with a godly face and a slim and pale body.
Instead I was cursed with an average face, a big nose and acne as well as bacne, which is a death sentence for a vain, looks obsessed guy like myself. Despite knowing that beauty fades and means nothing in the end, I feel hatred and jealousy towards every handsome man I see, especially those who come close to my own ideals.
How is life for other average or below average looking wizards going, especially those who are vain and very appearance-oriented like myself? What impact does the feeling of never being good looking have on you? Does it bother you or have you made peace with it? How do you cope?

I'm not too ugly, but I always wished I could modify my features a bit to be beautiful. I always found it sort of funny though, I could change my entire look in a photo just by shifting the lighting a bit, taking a different angle, and maybe even changing the distance a little; it's like a completely different person. One of my biggest peeves is that I'll never really know what I look like because of that, all I have is that inaccurate camera or a mirror which I can never freeze frame and which could possibly be warped somehow, distorting my features. But it also makes me distrust photos of beautiful people, knowing that they very well might not look like their photo at all due to the nature of what I listed prior, with angles, and lighting, and such, makeup even.

I’m an aesthete. I adore beauty. Buildings, people, furniture, paintings, plants and flowers, I want to surround myself with only aesthetically pleasing things. It’s human to be attracted to beauty, but in some that desire is mich stronger than in others.
I live everyday detesting my appearance because I can never be part of the things I adore. I love beauty, yet I’m not at all handsome myself. I hate gorgeous people out of envy, yet I’m still drawn to them, despite being unable to be like them. I’m vain, but have nothing to be vain about myself. This is suffering, loving the beautiful, but being unable to become the thing you love. I’ve thought about killing myself and maybe get better looks in my next life, if such a thing exists, but I’m too much a pussy to do it.

beauty is unironically relative. It is easily provable empirically. As all other factors are like, things like beauty could also be triumphed by other things during different situations. You often feel as if a person with more social connection to you as more beautiful as an example.

Also why would anyone need to cope with it? Wouldn't a wise man be able to realize that you don't live off based on the validation of others?

It’s not even about validation of others, at least not for me. For me it’s about being happy with myself. I rarely interact with people and work from home so I have no reason to worry about what they think of me, but I am still very much aware of my shortcomings and displeased with them. I think deep down, everyone yearns to be at least somewhat handsome, even those who claim not to care about appearance. When it comes to others, it’s not even about validation itself but the way you are treated as a person. Better looking people often get better treatment simply because they’re easy on the eyes.

>>206426
We do have different standards, or rather different preferences, ones that are influenced by things like media, culture etc. as well. But like >>206425 said, it’s mostly objective and only a tiny bit subjective, like whether you prefer blue or green eyes, or pale or more tanned skin. But put a well-built dude with a conventionally handsome face next to a fat dude with conventionally unattractive traits such as huge ears, buckteeth and a crooked nose and surely 95% if not more will find the first man more attractive.

>>206436
Im sorry anon. I guess the only good thing about not being handsome is that you will never have to worry about losing your beauty as you age. How old are you? Have you tried Rogain or Finasteride for the balding? If you’re hairy you can just shave it.

your example only shows how beauty is more subjective. The fact that majority find something beautiful is irrelevant to whatever beauty is objective or not as social media and the global culture greatly influenced the lookism in society. It isn't enough to show how beauty is mostly objective. How do you also assume that the beauty could even be defined without the social context? For example, when people perceive beauty it's inside some sort of context with what the person is perceiving the object/person as like the social relationship between that person. Does this not prove that attraction and beauty is quite subjective and dependent on social contexts massively?

>Why, what’s wrong with this thread? A lot of people get depressed from being ugly, to the point of developing body dysmorphophobia, I figured it’s something the wizards on here might relate to.


Because why would a wizard desire sexual attraction?

Yes. There’s been studies showing that attractive people do get preferential treatment, be it better grades in school, having an easier time finding a job, getting lighter sentences from judges, people in general being more forgiving towards them, and more. It’s not just “having a nice to look at face will get me laid”.
Just look up “attractive people are treated better” or something similar, there are many articles on this.
We like to tell ourselves that beauty doesn’t matter all that much, that people care more about personality in the long run and all that nice stuff, but it’s a lie, and we know it is, we just pretend we don’t. Beauty is the greatest gift you can receive, it’s the true “easy mode”, as long as you have at least some intellect/talent to go along with it, no matter how little, you will have it good. And even if you’re a dumb as bricks and talentless fuck, there is still a high chance you’ll make it, especially if you’re an attractive succubus, simply because people like looking at you.
Honestly being disabled or born disfigured is better than being unattractive because at least most of society will pity you and looking down on you for your shortcomings will be considered morally wrong. Like that one little succubus who has progeria and everyone keeps telling her she’s beautiful and gorgeous despite the fact she looks like a weird fucked up alien. Whereas if you’re just ugly, those around you will not hesitate to shit in you, whether consciously or subconsciously.

I'm an ugly wizard. Once you get older and stop interacting with younger people it isn't too bad, maybe it's because you become older people don't assume much about you but I stopped getting negative social situations as much. I don't really think about how I look now and just act polite to people, they seem to respond more now I'm getting older. I guess it depends on your environment but it doesn't weigh on my life much. I never considered myself ugly and still don't when looking in a mirror but people have called me ugly to my face so I guess I am, I was never focused on myself though.

 No.206485

I have met plenty of ugly people who are more successful than good looking ones because they're sociable and competent. Having a pretty face to look at is actually not very benificial to people and people decide their relationship by how it benefits them. An ugly person who are easy to talk to and work with is miles better then some adonis greek statue who have autism. Even if you faggots are good looking, your life wouldn't get any better.

This. "beauty" or looking good is the last thing I think of when I look in the mirror in the morning. What matters to me is that I maintain decent hygiene, get a haircut and shave occasionally and wear clean clothes. Anything more than that is overkill.

me too. I often felt disassociated with my body and reality when I was a child but I had lost that feeling as time went on. I personally think many others had experienced this but I never got to discuss this feeling of detachment.

My desire to become something immaterial was old as when I was a kid in elementary. I used to be really into Ray Kurzweil's religious transhumanism because I had a fantasy of being some omnipotent machine creature that lives forever. But sadly I realized that will never happen and that I will perish eventually.

Jesus christ, is this what actually goes on in the mind of succubi and fags? Fucking gender dysmorphia bullshit, I can't never understand them. Don't you people have actual problem to worry about? Like bills or mental illness not related to your appearance? Being ugly only change other people perception of you and not necessarily in an extremely bad way. Your appearance literally make no other differences in your day to day life. I can understand being sad because you're becoming ugly but to be self hating to the point of considering pumping yourself full of chemicals? Are you an aging actress or something? lmao. Reminds me of a trope in culture and art, like Elizabeth Bathory or Picture of Dorian Gray or that extremely obscure manga with crappy art that I somehow still remember, Helter Skelter.

It’s not just people thinking you’re shit looking. It’s people thinking you’re shit looking and actively treating you worse than those who aren’t shit looking. Your looks absolutely matter and unless you have some extraordinary abilities, being an ugly fuck will place you into hard mode immediately. Denying it is lying to yourself and others.

Oh sweetie, I have plenty of "real" problems; this is just the flavor of the week. I live in a dilapidated trailer from the 1970s, the ceiling has literally collapsed in several places. I've also very likely been exposed to asbestos and can expect an early, ugly death. I've got more mental illness than you can shake a stick at, the dysmorphia is just taking center stage due to certain circumstances outside my control. My mom's health is going down the drain, fast, and she's the only family I've got. If I don't somehow escape NEETdom I'm very likely to be homeless when she passes; not to mention utterly and entirely alone. So yes, I do have "actual problems". Do you?

Oh fuck off with your psychoanalyst bullshit. People are conditioned to find certain things disgusting whether culturally or biologically. The idea of gender dysphoria or body dysmorphism or whatever the fuck you call this thing is pretty disgusting to most people. A lot of people in this site have their own mental illnesses that are disgusting to normal people but these illnesses are not a problem within the community because enough users are similar enough to for what was previously a deviation to turn into a community norm. The fact that you faggots receive such backlash in this matter means that your deviation is different from the kind of deviation accepted here. We are not a site that provides a sanctuary to outcasts of all kinds. We are like minded people who happened to be outcasts in a certain way and your kind is not part of this brand of outcasts.

Wizards and faggots are disgusting to most people. Wizards are not disgusted with each other. Faggots are not disgusted with each others. That doesn't mean that wizards cannot be disgusted with faggots. Maybe you can be both a wizard and a faggot but don't expect all wizards to welcome you like we're some progressive everyone's a winner loonbin. Fuck the mods goddamn. If you aren't going to protect the original demographics then you'll end up with a dumpster consisting of every human garbage on the planet that happens to be virgin. Even in 4chan there threads that doesn't mention sex. The reason this site is supposed to be special is more than banning people who say they want have sex. It's supposed to be a community of people who sort of fit together.

This is largely true, but there is a degree of variance. A person can be attractive to some, not to others. Someone can be ugly, but grotesque. There are people who undeniably beautiful, and those who incontestably hideous; most of us are probably somewhere in the middle. Just something to think about.

Why do you care what other people think about you? You're not a teenager anymore. Or if you are then stop posting here.
People have cancer and other terrible illnesses. Nobody will shame a person for having cancer. And looking ugly and deformed is similar to cancer. It's not in the hands of a person how he looks. Well of course I mean real natural deformations here and not that whiny bitch syndrome shit when people complain that they are pretty but not THAT pretty. People who shame other persons because of their looks are infantile and stupid while stuck in high school 2.0 as an adult. I have nothing but contempt for such people. Whatever they say or think isn't worth a damn. In their mind they are still children.
It's nothing personal as I never had any problems because of my appereance. It's simple logic. Basing your value on your natural appereance means that it would be okay insulting a person for having cancer because somehow it is the individuals fault. It's not. Well smoking can cause lung cancer etc. but that's besides the point.
All this talk about gender and trans people who want to decide how they look on their own - how the fuck can people be so shallow? Is their life really this empty that they have nothing else to care about? Well I wouldn't even care at all if they weren't so loud and obnoxious about it and if they weren't trying to convince everyone of their boring views.

Anon earlier in this thread provided a link on how the way you look influences your chance of getting a job, how much money you get, how people perceive your intelligence, personality and more.

It's the same for tall people, if you're male. I didn't use to worrry about my height, I figured 5'10 was roughly average. Then I went on /fit/ while I was trying to lose weight, years ago. They didn't help for shit in that regard, but they did give me a complex about my height. Same thing with looks, of which height is just another qualifier.

I am no psychologist but I think that people on 4chan get some bizarre pleasure from creating a narrative that everything is horrible and that they are doomed so there is no point in trying to improve themselves. They spend an amazing amount of time and energy on proving why they are doomed instead of improving themselves in any way. Like they will make detailed "info"graphics trying to prove how if you are not 6'4" tall and look like a model that you will never find any happiness in life. And then whenever anyone actually posts his face they are at worst just average looking while they describe themselves as "ugly as fuck". In general it seems like on the internet people are turning the contrast up to 110%. Even successful movie stars and models are being called "ugly" just because they look a bit unusual. And trying to talk to these people is just frustrating. If you do not share their unrealistic grim world view you are told that you "cope" or that you are a cuck or succubus or whatever. In some twisted irony the people unable to have a reasonable argument without name calling, memes and buzzwords call others NPCs.

Looks are soft gate keepers in the social world ruled by success and connections. You don't need to be attractive and a pleasure to look at but you should have a face and body which at least is not disturbing to look at. The uglier you look by normie standards the more compensation you need via character and charisma. It's part of the hierarchical structures and to play on that field means that you have to deal with your appereance on some level. Even shitty jobs often require decent looks or while uglier people get these jobs it's harder for them due to extra stress with coworkers and clients. The hierarchical structures of society are futile but there is almost no way to avoid them in order to survive, pay rent and food, electricity etc. - living in da woods and going full hikikomori is restricted to a few individuals.

The common way to compensate bad looks seems to be showing a certain attitude towards other people - basically be relaxed, show no anxiety, don't show any sign that you care what other people think of you, do your stuff as if looks didn't matter to you at all like it should be. When people realize that your appearance doesn't matter to you they have no space for aggression and most times just leave you alone as they worry about their own stuff. Or maybe they even appreciate your attitude of not giving a fuck.
This still is not perfect by any means and kind of a negative solution but it does its job of compensating looks. And let's be real there is no doubt that attractive people with a bad attitude and arrogant behaviour don't have it any better. People also realize unappealing characters that they don't want to associate with regardless of looks. This actaully matters in job interviews as much as appearence since you have to be somewhat likeable to receive employment. Being likeable is even much more important than your looks from my experience.

I got picked on my entire childhood and teenage years for being ugly. Sometimes I would just walk to the store or from school minding my own business and get called ugly by strangers. Picked up my younger brother from school once and there was some succubus with her younger sibling who looked at me in disgust and said I looked so bad I should be ashamed. My face got better proportions as I entered adulthood, but I’m still quite unattractive. Being ugly, not just average or slightly below average, but truly undeniably bad looking is an experience i wouldn’t wish on anyone. Humans are incredibly fucking vain.

Average face means you are better looking than half the people out there, and no matter what someone is always going to be better looking than you.

Regardless of your appearance based on your genes, you can be attractive.

The most attractive quality is someone who is confident and secure in themselves. What kind of clothes do you wear? What kind of grooming do you do? Are you athletic?

If you are not happy with your appearance, do something about it. For starters you can go see a dr to get some acne medication. Can’t afford it? Bullshit make it a priority.
