i asked this a couple weeks ago and most of the guys said I was pretty. this is weird to me because all the guys at my school ignored me or taunted me and called me ugly. do you guys lie to make the girl feel better or tell the truth?
This site is all about honesty personally. I would be brutally honest if asked directly. Though, if the person was exceptionally hidious I might tone it down to "unattractive" to spare some feelings.
Then, most people who post are pretty. At least that I've seen, don't often answer those types of posts though as there are people with more serious issues.
School is a miniture political system in full swing. People get to be "popular" partly by having a natural boost (looks, money, inate humor) and then by either subitly or directly deposing others qualities. I didn't see this till I was older and got into the workplace.
Basicly, it could just simply be the "in" thing to make fun of person "x". It could also be there's an association of you being nice and bad people and stupid people use "nice" people to "push off" to look better (e.g. its safe to look cool by teasing or putting down person x because they never fight back).
Look at how you respond to this taunting or being ignored. Its possibly you are perfectly good looking but people are immature and you have allowed yourself to accept the role imposed upon you by others behaviour. I can't say what is true, I have not seen a picture of you to tell.
Its also possibly you are not conventionally attractive. This isn't always a bad thing.
Maybe they were telling the truth! I'm always honest and use the rate scale to me advantage (10 if super hot and 1 if butt ugly) and I kno it's a bit amature but trust me it saves a lot of tears. But knowing guys they would rather tell a lie and let us girls be happy than telling the truth and dealing with an emotional wreck for a few hours! But hey I think everyone is beautiful on the inside and if there are people who think your a 1 then trust me there are some people in this world that will think your a downright 10!
I used to be considered ugly/fair in high school, now that I got out of there I realized that was a small fraction of the rest of the world. Shit, now I can get anyone I want it seems like so don't worry take those as compliments they're prob true
