    16 Things Only Average-Looking People Will Understand

    Living that fabulously average life <3

    1. You've never been the ugly duckling, but you're not the mysterious peacock either. You've always been just the regular duck.

    2. "Is he handsome?" "Um, y'know, he's kinda... he's cute."


    On the attractiveness scale, you're consistently ranked as "okay."

    3. You may not be a runway model.

    4. But, hey, at least you haven't broken any mirrors on account of your ugliness, either.


    5. Actually, genetics sort of blessed you. You could have been so attractive that everyone would be jealous of you or so unattractive that everyone would mock you, but instead you live in that wonderful middle ground.


    There's always someone better and someone worse.

    6. The photo gallery on your cell phone is always full because you have to take about 57 selfies just to get that one that turns out well.

    7. But you better not look at that one selfie for too long, otherwise you'll find some tiny flaw and have to start all over again.

    Post it and forget about it! Bless the world with that selfie and wait for those likes to pour in.

    8. Whenever someone compliments you, you feel like an absolute rockstar.


    But then you see them complimenting a complete train wreck and all your joy turns to sorrow.

    "Jeez, I couldn't even have five minutes of bliss, thinking I was a 10 instead of a 5?? It's a cruel, cruel world."

    9. But then you go on Tinder and you realize that the world is full of so-so people like you.


    And not just of perfect people, like you see in magazines and on TV.

    10. On the plus side, not caring too much about your looks gives you the opportunity to cultivate other aspects of yourself, like your stellar personality.

    You're friendly and have a positive outlook on life, and that is freaking awesome. Go you!

    11. And when someone wants to be with you, you know it's not just for your looks.


    It's because you're cool, interesting, nice, kind, refined — the list goes on and on.

    12. The good thing is that you know, if you want to be hot, you can always get all dolled up.

    13. There's nothing like a well-trimmed beard or bright red lipstick to make you insta-smoking ;)

    14. You've come to know all your best angles for taking photos.


    Because, like a true soldier, you know your strongest weapons.

    15. And it's kind of comforting that, for you, beauty is a choice, not an obligation.

    "Today, I woke up beautiful!"

    16. But TBH, the greatest part of all this is your killer versatility.


    You can go from goofy to stunning in 0.5 second (well, maybe a bit more than that).

    So revel in your beautiful averageness — it made you into the fabulous human being you are today <3
