No point in being alive if you aren't hot?

So why should I be alive if I'm aren't hot?

My gf would try to accept that I'm not hot, and only like my personality, just because she fails to get "the whole package" (someone who is hot both inside and out).

So I would just be a half-assed thing for her because she can't get anything better.

Why would I be content with half-assed stuff? Can someone explain this to me? Why shouldn't I just kill myself?

My logic says that I should kill myself.

But fear of death and survival instinct will lead to various stuff like wishful thinking and denial of truth, which will prevent me from killing myself.

Kind of a stupid ass thing to be worrying about. Everybody is helplessly born into the body they have, so it's not worth wasting energy feeling sorry for how you look, or judging/feeling envious of others for their bodies. You can still groom yourself and exercise/eat well to influence your physical "hotness" as well, so it's not completely out of your control. That's where your energy should go.

Why is being hot so important to you? Yeah it's nice, but it doesn't matter THAT much. There are plenty of hot people that are garbage human beings, so what does it matter how hot they are if you wouldn't want to spend time around them? See how easily the value you're putting in it breaks down?

@Roy I kinda already explained why it's important.

It's important because it would be some "meh" "half-assed" stuff, because she can't get any better. And she would never be truly content with me, she would always desire something better, and probably one day she would find something better.

What about you though. Why wouldn't you feel those things too?

If she wouldn't be hot?

Yes then I would feel those things too. But of course I wouldn't tell that to her, because she would leave me if I would.

You'd probably agree those thoughts are problematic. Focus on how to be in a place you can get rid of those thoughts, or they don't show up in the first place.

Most people in relationships aren't dwelling on how the relationship isn't perfect or how they could do better or worse. They are just enjoying it.

They are problematic from a survival perspective. Because they could lead to death. So several defense mechanisms gets activated to prevent that shit.

You seem to suggest that those thoughts should be swept under the rug, I understand, that's a pretty common defense mechanism to prevent one from death.

I think your problem is more fundamental than getting a girlfriend (whether they are hot or not). Forget the relationship/sex stuff for now and work on getting help for your mental health.

Don't put the cart before the horse, or you'll just waste a lot of time.

Only if you think being physically wanted by someone else is the meaning of life.

Of course it's the meaning of life, at least for me.

The meaning of life is individual and subjective.

Is all this hypothetical? Or do you have really have a girlfriend who told you that?

Why be alive even if you are hot? Really, there's no logic to this other than the fact that you just want to be alive.

At least you're healthy.  I don't care that I'm not hot, I wish I could have been just healthy and normal - there's no point in living if you're diseased and miserable.  Enjoy your health.  That's all that matters.

kinda have a gf who told me that.

If you are hot then you would of course be alive because you are desperately wanted by everyone of the opposite sex.

And the beauty of that is you can find something that's suited to you.

 

Why doesn't your logic say to find a different meaning (if any)?

My logic says, if I'm not hot then that can't be the meaning of life for me. Square peg / round hole kinda thing.

Wanting to be an evolutionary fit specimen is just the default mode of animal life when you haven't really thought about yet. All the kids in school want to be popular. And then, if you're lucky, you grow up.

Cheers

My subjective meaning of life is that I must be loved and desired by girls/women in every single way, both inside and out. Do you have a problem with my personal meaning of life?

You don't need to be healthy at all.

All you need is to be desired by the opposite sex (or the same sex if you are gay or whatever).

And since you are a girl, you are automatically desired by almost all guys. So you are all good.

@Blackhawk I'm asexual so I don't care about being desired, in fact, I tend not to like it very much.
I'd be okay with just being healthy, feeling comfortable in my body and not worrying about the day to day.

Kind of sad that this is the level of sickness our society has reached. Not saying this to be judgmental, but to make you aware that this is not a healthy perspective.

The actuality of life is a very raw, boundless expression of things, so beyond these petty, oversimplified ideas of what everything should be like. In holding onto these ideas, you aren't truly 'alive' to begin with. There's an alternative, which is scary at first, but immeasurably beautiful once you get there...

 

I'm not saying that looks don't matter at all, but in your case it seems like generally, your needs for 'connection' and 'belonging' are being met quite well. So you do not need to keep on worrying unnecessarily:)

@Blackhawk and why wouldn't you need to be healthy?

If I could choose between having arms and being unloved, and have no arms and be loved, I would choose the latter.

@Blackhawk Desire can be this endless pit sometimes.. When you never had a gf or gone on a date, you wish you could just go on a date and hold someone's hand.. or have sex for the first time. But then you're not satisfied for having experienced all that once, twice.., now you want it to always be there. Why not simply love what arises as deeply as you can? And have the courage to let it go if it does decide to "leave you"... to love the fact that what this "other" wants is best for him/her/itself just like how you want to honor your life and your wishes and desires the same? It's ultimately the same coin, whether someone be with you or "leave" you, it's all for love.

@Blackhawk

This isn't directly related to the OP. 

I know that you think these thoughts serve you well, in the sense that they verify the world as you experience it.

While the thoughts affirms what you "know", they don't serve you well from a transformational perspective.

They keep you firmly fixed in the world view that you currently have, that I think you do acknowledge as "dysfunctional". 

Not meaning that you are dysfunctional, but that the world around you is dysfunctional and essentially, as a results, treats you in an unfavorable way. 

This being confirmed by you thinking that you aren't attractive enough, and that people won't accept you for who you are, based on that, which you "know", by experience. 

Basically, there's no arguing with that, as it is, in your world, "true" and "confirmed" by yourself, yes? 

What if what you need, in deeper sense, isn't good looks, which you probably could control to some degree. Nor is it for others to change, which you certainly cannot control.

Have you ever contemplated that the way you relate, attach meaning to things and the resulting world view and view of yourself as well as the people in it, is the result of your way of relating? 

And that, if your focus is being switched from affirming that the outside world is "against you", your focus better serves you by being on your mindset.

I'm not saying that you should shift from thinking you're less attractive to being more attractive.

It's much more fundamental than that. 

- Positive thoughts vs negative ones

- actively looking for opportunities vs seeing obstacles everywhere

- Push for growth and movement vs entertaining a deep belief that what is, is fixed and can't be done anything about

I could easily say that this is the path forward, and we're you to walk this path, you would absolutely change as a human being.

You probably already feel the resistance against possibility of this being true or even remotely possible. And if it were, it would be others and that you are some kind of exception from the rule.

It's the right-hand side of those three mindset traits that is working away on you. 

Only by shifting how we see things, we can allow outselves to see and experience a different world, within what's already there, in our field of experience. 

Those mindset traits determines whether we see a beautiful, supporting world full of opportunities that are ripe to be picked, by you, where you feel powerful and in control of your choices - or - whether you see a world that is dark, grim, full of problems, let-downs and that is essentially "out to get you", where you is the victim of circumstances. 

It's only when, deliberately, you can recognize the unfavorable mindset traits that you hold, that you can shift to try to adopt, and transition into holding a more constructive mindset. 

This isn't rocket science, but it's by no means easy to achieve. Mostly because of the nature of our mindset itself, as it defines the dogma that keep us running in the same old ruts that got us stuck in the first place. But instead of trying something new, we struggle with the same tactics that got us there, and that we deep down already know, won't get us out of those ruts. Rather they make the ruts deeper, getting increasingly stuck, with the obstacles growing increasingly monumental. 

Could I suggest you a summer read to learn more about growth mindsets, and maybe you could deliberately entertain the idea of this crazy thing called "growth mindset" possibly being true, and something you could practice and adopt to successively change your world into something more positive? 

(It's not explicitly dealing with "hot girlfriends" , but that's the point, that need is just a symptom of things on a deeper level that needs attention) 

The book is Mindset by Carol Dweck, and it's also available on as audiobook if you don't care for reading.

See it as an investment in yourself, and try to approach it with an open mind. 

I'd also suggest that you re-read this post, slow down, and try reading it thinking about how positivity, opportunity and growth would interpret this post.

Me too but we're talking about "being hot" here, not about being loved.

 

You do want to be loved and you do want to be happy - and you can totally have that, independent of the way you look.
