Being the less attractive sister. - September 25th 2011, 09:37 PM

Whenever I introduce my friends to my sister, they say, "She's a babe!" or "She's the coolest!" She's tall, thin, and beautiful, and I consider myself pretty, but I'm also short and stocky. I may be paranoid, but my boyfriend seems to be a little too interested in her as well. If I mention she'll be somewhere, he asks if we can go, and often tells me how cool he thinks she is. I feel like I'm competing with her and losing. This has led me to always feel extremely self-conscious around her, and I feel like it's ruining our relationship. What can I do to stop constantly worrying that I'm the ugly sister?

Waitin' for my ruca.

If he (your bf) seriosuly appears like he might make a move for her, dump him. I have this feeling a lot as well. Do you have any special talents or skills? Work on them, practice them! If you're with what you're doing your real beauty will shine through! After I have a dance recital or I'm just really happy people always come over and talk with me and I feel like I sparkle. if it really bothers you talk to her about it, don't sound accusatory though, just state how you feel and ask her about her views. Good luck! PM me any time.

You should break up with your boyfriend to start with if he's looking at your sister and is wanting to spend more time with her instead of you. Next, you should look at your own talents. Focus on them, whatever they may be, if it's singing, photography or dancing, focus on that, which is your internal beauty. If you really feel it is necessary, talk to your sister, tell her about your low self-esteem, maybe she could help you out and support you.
