Do you like what you see?

Whenever you walk in front of a mirror, do you stop and look at yourself or do you walk faster or try avoiding looking at your own reflection. My friends say that i'm totally vain and extreme. Whenever i find a reflection of myself, i'd stop and take a look at myself. To see if my hair is set properly or whether i look presentable. Sometimes at home, when i stand naked in front of the mirror before bath, i tend to pitch my fats and start taking mental notes on how much to lose weight or take a closer look at that pimple that is coming out or those ugly stretch marks that need to disappear. So what do you do?

You remind me of my daughter, she loves who she is and is always working to keep herself looking prsentable. I do not like to spend much time in front of a mirror, I'm just a bit shy about that sort of thing.

I'm not very vain,I do stop in front of the mirror every now and then to make sure my face is not green or my hair is not standing on it's roots(happens sometimes). There is only so many natural ways to improve your appearance so why go crazy about it? There are many qualities I don't like about myself but overall it could've been worse. As to looking in the mirror all the time-that can be addicting! And dangerous lol I would say you're too young but I've found out we are almost age so it really depends on your personality.

I think everyone's a little vain, except those who are really depressed and at the brink of slashing their wrists. I don't really consider myself as really good looking or really vain but I do look in the mirror quite a couple of times not for vanity but just to check if I look decent....or presentable at the least....

NO! I do not like looking in a mirror! When I was young, even well into my 40's I looked like (Goldy Hawn), people said I was cute and men were always hitting on me, well now that I am in my late 50's I look like (Ed Asner)!

Well deep within us there is always this dream of being the most beautiful or handsome person in the world. But each of us are made in different appearance and image. I usually look at the mirror from time to time just to check if everything is in order. At least if I am not that handsome, I am still presentable.

I don't worship myself so I don't spend unnecessary time looking at my body in a mirror. Whenever I am bathing myself I will look over my body to see if there is any unnecessary spots because sometimes humans tends to walk and hurt some place without knowing so I will look for those but to just looking at myself in the mirror it is vain and stupid.

Hi!Yeah,I tend to stop (just sa fleeting moment) whenever I passed by a mirror,probably to see if I still looked fine.But I learned that looking or stopping for a while in a mirror is just one of the Reflexes.Just like when something touches your left cheek,you tend to touch or check your left cheek and not the right cheek.It really doesn't bother me a bit to be doing that.

I suppose the only time that I look in a mirror is when I have to.. like when I'm putting makeup on or to fix my hair. I'm a one time application, type person. I don't go back and re-do anything, if my hair messes up or my makeup smears.. oh well..... life goes on!
