    everyone say to me that i look better without glasses and i should wear contacts.. it's so annoying i really don't know how to put them on but i don't want to either.. i don't feel uglier with my glasses on because i don't feel like i have to be the typical pretty girl! i'm more like a tomboy.. but i feel sad that most people say that to me all the time and my friends ask me "why don't you want to be more pretty?" "wear contacts"!
    what do you think of glasses? :icon_sad:

    I have small eyes and since they makes my eyes look bigger, people tell me to keep my glasses on and that I look better with them. I personally feel glasses fit in the same category of hearing aids and walking aids.

    I'm laughing. Please laugh with me and don't be sad. Here's why.

    When my daughter was 16, despite having very good vision, she was desperate--yes desperate to have eyeglasses. Not contact lenses. Eyeglasses. I see you're 20 years old, just a little younger than she is now.

    Unlike me, she is not a "nerd" or a geek, and in fact is rather socially gifted. So what did she pick? A rather expensive pair of frames, that actually used the word "nerd" or "geek" in the title.

    Moral of the story: In her venue, glasses were a fashion statement, obviously.

    For you, maybe you could consider contact lenses. If the idea of glasses screws up your self confidence, a story told by me isn't going to fix that, is it? If you want to be less of a "tomboy" then whatever style you think might work for that would make you feel better.

    Also, if you get contacts the provider will teach you how to use them. You also can ask one of the millions of wearers for advice.

    Just be aware that your "friends" who are dissing you are not the last word on the subject, so far as I can tell.

    I don't feel way or another.

    Glasses, in my opinion, range from pretty to meh. I won't find somebody less attractive because of them. That's a bit vain to me.

    As for contacts, I would never wear that myself, so I don't understand why so many people push for it. If you feel comfortable putting something directly on your eyes, fine, but that should be a personal decision. If your friends keep pushing it, I would advise you to stand your ground.

    On another note, I rarely wear my glasses because I find them annoying, not because I think they make me ugly (I put them on when I have to, like when I drive, need to see on the board etc.).

    It depends on the individual, but I certainly wouldn't be less attracted to someone I like if they wore glasses.

    No, not at all. I have actually thought lots of people looked better with glasses on than off. It's all just a preference.

    Glasses makes someone MORE attractive. I have a glasses fetish, which basically means I need to see glasses to be sexually attracted and get off. lol If someone wore glasses but then switched to contacts, they lose all physical attraction to me.

    Let me put it this way. One of the things I'm not really attracted to is blonde hair (but it's not a dealbreaker either). Blondes are meh to me, don't notice them. But when a blonde puts on glasses, all of a sudden they become as a sexy as a 10 with dark hair and I can't stop staring.

    Not a deal breaker at all, some people look cuter with them others hotter. People can't help that they need glasses so for someone to not be with a person based on that, well I would never.

    They definitely make people less attractive. Now, somebody can still be attractive even with glasses, but I have never met a person who looks better with them- actually, all people I've met with glasses would look a lot better without them. :/ This is coming from somebody who wears glasses by the way.

    Really? I feel the opposite way. Everyone I met without glasses looks boring, ugly, or plain, but once they put glasses on they become someone I instantly want to bang even if they have other physical flaws.

    I might even make my partner wear their glasses when we have sex, since taking them off kills my ladyboner :icon_sad:

    (I think I have a problem....)

    My most recent pairs of glasses have all been cheap brands and have had paint shipping off. They also get grotty with that green algae stuff after a while, even though I take the best care possible, they age and get worn. So ideally, I don't like to wear glasses when I go out because I do make an effort with the rest of my outfit, like picking nice clothes and shoes to wear to an event, so I don't want to wear the same glasses I have been using at work, in the garden, etc. So I will wear disposable contacts when I go out. It's also nice to not have the weight on my nose, and not worry about them getting spattered. It's just my preference. Personally I think i look good with and without glasses, but I prefer not wearing them when I go out or have a special occasion.

    It depends on the type of glasses.
