I would never say I deserve more votes. Because then someone would internally lol at that, and I would look like a douchebag. "Oh look at him, thinking he's hot stuff when he looks like shit, how ridiculous". Yeah, I prefer saying I'm "just a normal guy", generally speaking.
But I'll try to take compliments from now on? Never been good at that. I guess it may be because I'm rarely if ever complimented. Gotta' learn!
It's not how you look, it's how you wear it. If you keep telling yourself you're not attractive, you don't believe people when they genuinely compliment you. Someone, somewhere WILL find you attractive. You twat.
I guess self-deprecation helped a bit in my case, . Expectation management, etc. And possibly visible improvement.
