I took a look at your picture too, and Sweetie...you are beautiful! How can such a pretty lady be a welder??? Are you really a welder?? is your hair really that blond and pretty??
Anyway, I had to learn (as I started to age) that yes, changes happen. But, let me remind you...the men change in physical appearance too! Believe me, they really do! Most likely, they think the same way we do. But I guess they feel it would be 'sissy' to talk about it. (I'm guessing, of course.)
But really, one thing I think is NOT attractive is to see these little ladies who are obviously past their prime, but wearing clothes that should be on a 13 or 14 year old girl, overly died hair, can't see well enough to read normally, (stretch the book or paper way out, at arm's length in a futile effort to READ the print. But too vain to get glasses.)...You know what I'm talking about?
I have a dear friend who does not live my lifestyle, who lives with her 'boyfriend' and not married due to 3 bad marriages, etc., etc. And she used to work in a bar room. When I met her (you see, the Lord put her in my pathway of life. Literally.) she immediately latched onto me, and refers to me as her' best friend in the world' to everyone. I went to her Mother's funeral and she introduced me to people there as 'my best friend in all the world.'
But one day she said, "I wish I looked as good as you in the clothes I wear."
And the Lord said to me, "YOU are her friend. Tell her the truth. She will listen to you."
So...as gently as I could, I said to her, "________, you don't wear clothes like I do. I am very modest. I buy from sales racks and clearance corners. But why don't you let me give you a couple of outfits (she was my size at the time) and just see how MY clothes look on you? Will you take the clothes?" You see, she wore mini skirts, tight tops, too tight jeans. Me? I like 2 piece dresses, suits, blaziers.
Anyway, she said, "Okay. That sounds good to me." So the next time she was at my house, I laid out several 'outfits' and told her to pick which 3 she would like. She selected the three, protesting the whole while that she really didn't want to take them, but I knew she really did. She'd seen me wearing some of them.
I talked her into wearing one outfit home and guess what! Her 'boyfriend' told her, "Wow, ______! I didn't know you could look so stunning!" (Mainly, I help with her walk with the Lord, which IS improving as time goes by.)
But you see, this is what I mean by doing the best we can with what we have been given. She is only 6 years younger than me, but was trying to dress far too young for her age. (Since that day I shared some clothes with her she now wears different kinds of clothes! Skirts somewhat longer. Pants not skin tight. Etc. I have seen an amazing transformation in the way she looks!)
Like others have said, just be you. But I add...keep it age appropriate. (You should have no problem. You are natural beauty to begin with!)
My favorite scripture: Malachi 3:16
"Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name!" (Every time we speak of the Lord, or even THINK of him--its written down in a book of remembrance!)
