I've been doing everything I can, since forever, to be as attractive as I can, so that I won't continue to be rejected. I have changed a lot. I don't value others more than myself anymore, and I am assertive and confident. But I'm still very sensitive, I can't help it, and I can never be an alpha male. But I don't want to fake who I am. I know that I am valuable, and that I'll find the right person someday. But until then, I continue to be ridiculed and ignored by everyday people, people I am attracted to, and it hurts not being wanted. I try to think positively, but my daily experience reminds me that I'm not what most want, and the people I want, whether or not they are good for me, keep picking the typical powerful mate instead of the authentic individual. How do you guys/girls cope knowing that your personality, for most people, just isn't attractive? Is this all in my head? Or is there some truth to suffering for being different?
