:)

I don't think I'd be able to flirt at all. That'd be up there with acting, or doing voices. :)

My therapist has more or less said I dress in a less than attractive way, and that I'm overweight. Or at least he's said I shouldn't be hard on myself about my weight, because it was caused by medications.

But he also often expresses surprised compliments when I bring in pictures of me at different ages. Young adult me got "handsome", older teenage me got "va va voom", and little girl me got "just like a young Meg Ryan". Sigh. Like when my friend's wife saw a picture of me when I was younger and said "Hey, you used to be pretty!!!"

And that was *before* I gained weight.

Appearance issues, me? How could this be?
