WHY DO I BASE MY WORTH ON MALE APPROVAL?
I am a very attractive young woman and I seem to be fixated on impressing men and gaining attention by dressing attractively and 'stroking' their ego's. To the outside world I am bubbly and outgoing, but on the inside I am screaming for acceptance and I am very insecure. I have latched onto various relationships which have been sour and bad for me. How can I learn to realise that I can be happy on my own and nobody can make me feel happy? I need to focus on my studies too. pls help

As an attractive woman and skilled ego-stroker, you have found that this method is so easy as to provide worthless results. That method NEVER produces acceptance, and can make it harder to achieve. "Relationships" based on such techniques, are usually shallow, anfail to meet what you really need. See a counsellor to work on your issues like self-esteem and acceptance. It'll really help
