Just 1 in 8 women consider themselves attractive

More from the Telegraph article below.

More than one in four women (27%) admit the biggest pressure to be "beautiful" comes from themselves, according to a new study of  UK women conducted by Dove Skincare.

And only one in eight (13%) have the confidence to call themselves "attractive."

One in four women were unable to remember when they last received a compliment that made them feel beautiful.

Society (19 per cent) and the media (13 per cent) were next on the list of top beauty pressures, but just 5% of women feel pressure from friends, family and partners.

The research also revealed that the secret to women feeling confident was a clear combination of relationships and looking good.

Being loved (72%) was the biggest confidence booster for women, followed by having a strong relationship or marriage (53%), liking how you look in the mirror (35%), being in good physical shape (33%), and taking good care of yourself (31%).

Try all your might little men!

Women want to hear what "they" need to hear at the time.

The best laid plans of mice and men matter naught.

If you are honest, somewhat handsome (not always necessary) and have good timing,

AND the stars are aligned,

You will get the brass ring!

I just realized that "Pretty As You Feel" was released in 1971. God, I feel old.

Ah, yes, when all that was of interest. I vaguely remember.

I DO recall one wonderful truth, which I first heard when I was on my way out of this arena, but which holds true still:

"You're just one bad mood away."

I LOVE that.

Never call a woman beautiful. She will not believe you.

Instead, say she looks sexy. Every woman thinks she is sexy.

The years have not been kind to Grace.
