I think we’re all plagued by some kind of insecurity. And since we’re with ourselves ALL THE TIME, we really notice things about ourselves that others simply would never spot. The old adage “we’re our own worst critics” is really true about most people.

“Guys on Reddit, what’s something girls shouldn’t be insecure about?”

And the answers were both a) comforting and b) super revealing! Here are some of the best.

1. Freckles

“I personally want to find the person that told women freckles should be covered up and I don’t want to hurt anyone so I’ll just have a strongly worded conversation with them. Maybe it’s just me, but I have a serious weakness for freckles. From a dusting across the bridge of a woman’s nose to head-to-toe ginger freckles. I think they’re gorgeous.” —u/sloowhand

2. Boobs!

“Breast size. A good portion of us don’t give a shit about that.” —u/TheBigPasta

3. Any blemish

“Cellulite, stretch marks, anything that might be seen as a ‘blemish.’ My girlfriend has all of the above and I never noticed any of it until she said something about them.” —u/CilliamBlinton·

4. Frizzy hair

“Frizzy hair! It’s really fun to look at. Some women seem to try to straighten or curl their hair but I think going with what your hair wants is best. I know there are always those shampoo commercials with impossibly silky hair, and that looks nice, but there are so many different ways to have beautiful hair. I think genuine hair is often beautiful hair!” —u/MQ116

5. Confidence

“Having a woman that is confident in making her own decisions is great. You don’t need anyone’s fucking permission to do a damn thing that doesn’t directly involve them. Asking someone’s opinion or input versus their permission are two different things. Girls, ladies, women, anyone hear this: Confidence is far more beautiful than any makeup or clothing. I love the inner beauty that radiates out! I’ve seen dolled-up women that were rotten to the core. Love yourself and love will find you!!!”—u/iamme_72584

6. Height

“Height! As a 5’9” guy, I love girl’s my height and even taller, so stand straight for God’s sake!” —u/Shot_Scheme2504

7. Be smart

“Brains. Being a nerd is the new sexy.” —u/trzvk22

8. Be real!

“I like girls who can be real around me. When they feel comfortable and say whatever dumb shit is on their mind, I feel like I’m actually connecting with someone. Cliche, but I think being yourself and losing the insecurity, in general, is the most attractive thing someone can do.” —u/jrugz320

9. Anything. Everything.

“Honestly, damn near everything. It’s sad seeing beautiful women treat themselves like shit because their cheekbones aren’t right or their thighs are slightly red or whatever. Ladies: guys DO NOT CARE IN THE SLIGHTEST about these things. They will love you for who you are. And the guys that do make a big stink about physical ‘abnormalities’ aren’t worth chasing after in the first place.”—u/icerope1199

10. Know yourself!

“Being assertive. There’s nothing wrong with a person being assertive, man or woman. There’s no reason to be self-conscious about competence and knowledge. And assertiveness is just the expression of those.” —u/DuvalHeart
