Since I graduated high school I came into my looks and as a result during college. During this time period of about 2 years I went from getting constant attention to being practically invisible. I can understand this because people have standards and what they define as attractive, however a lot of the time if I so much as made eye contact with a woman even on accident I would get nothing but the coldest stares back at me. Now however I have been working out and getting in good shape, have had a lot of my hair restored through medication and have gotten rid of the wrinkles through a skin care regiment. As a result I seem to have gotten a lot of attention and just treated better overall from people. If I make eye contact now for example I get nothing but smiles so it is a bit embittering. I would like advice on how to not let that get to me as I feel a tad bitter over the fact that I was treated so harshly and now that I have improved myself I am all of the sudden good enough for them.

I, too, never thought of myself as one of those bitter, single people. But then I had my blinding moment of self-awareness. But as the evening went on, I felt increasingly out of place, and increasingly annoyed about it. Surveying the room, I noticed that I was one of only three single women in the entire place. I caught myself thinking dismissive thoughts about the people in relationships, and internally rolling my eyes as they discussed weddings and the like.
