I genuinely think I am unattractive to most people, although I don't think I'd call myself ugly. I don't imagine that people look at me and turn away in disgust (although some might chuckle).
I guess it would be impossible to say for sure whether I am trying to compensate with nice clothes. But I'm pretty convinced on a conscious level that no suit, no matter how well cut and made, will re-shape my face, shrink my head, make me taller, or trim my waist. Hell, I dress the way I do despite
the fact I could more easily afford to dress in a far more appealing way to my real-life peers. So, who knows what complex underlies my desire to dress well? All I can say is that I am aware it does not make me more physically attractive to others.
