So, I've had my head shaved for almost a week and I've gotten some good feedback as well as just some confused looks. When I look in the mirror, I'm pleased with my new look.
So I figured I'd take some pics with my cell phone at work to post here on the forum.
But when I took the photos, I was horrified. I really don't like my looks. I've never been considered classically handsome, but I've gotten my share of attention and, in my adult life, I've gotten a fair amount of attention from sexual interests. I'm neither handsome nor ugly, I think, to be honest. I've been called "cute" and "sexy," but not handsome. But I really, really don't like my face. And the photos just highlighted that.
Perhaps hair distracts from my features, or minimizes my facial weaknesses - and without the hair, my visual flaws are just there, out in the open with no camouflage.
I'm kind of bummed out.
I know that confidence can help to overcome all kinds of flaws, but it's hard to feel confident right now. I kind of hate my face.
Anyone feel similarly?
