Do you need affirmation from the opposite sex to determine if you are attractive or not? Explain. (February 15, 2022)

I believe what the question asks is do you need to feel desirable and my answer is yes. It is a very human and psychological need to want to have desirability outside of one’s self or group of comfort.

No, because you know if you’re attractive or not. Affirmation is not needed from anyone but myself.

Reagan Smith




Bay Springs, Mississippi

No, I do not need affirmation from the opposite sex to determine if I am attractive or not. I know that I am a beautiful woman created in God’s image who exhibits inner beauty that radiates just as well as my outer beauty, if not more. Another person’s opinion about me being attractive or not should not be used for any validation.

No, I don’t need other people’s opinion for that. I think that if you like me for me that’s all that matters. I believe my worth is more important than someone’s opinion.

No, because I think self love is the best love. I don’t need anyone to tell me I’m attractive if I already know that I am.
