  • You're dead right - it's jealousy. People have no problem boosting people who aren't as attractive as they are because they know that, no matter what they say, that person is still "beneath" them in the looks department. But people have a very hard time swallowing their pride and admitting "yes, you're a lot more attractive than I am."

    By the way, I love Tara's eyes. If I were a little bit younger, forget dating her - I'd be asking her to marry me! I'd want to look into those eyes first thing, every morning, for the rest of my life.

  • Jealousy can be a bitch haha. Seriously though maybe because they girl one surrounds herself with true friends and good people that say positive things while girl two for example may be friends with a bunch of girls that actually hate her.

  • Girl two probably gets much attention as is. Its wrong to cut down both pretty and ugly people. Girl two is absolutely gorgeous in my eyes. Id date if given the chance :p

  • 'Cause they want to make the ugly person feel better, but when they talk to the attractive girl they want to make themselves feel better.

  • No one wants to be left out. "The pretty ones where already in and the ugly weren't" So that's why they boost the ugly up so they would be in and put the pretty down because the were already in.

  • Pretty People have the world handed to them on a platter. Who gives a crap when someone occasionally bucks the trend and offers up a helping of humble pie?

    • so many girls are unnecessarily cruel to her tho. she's a super sweet girl and did nothing to them, but they attack her. it's like if you were walking down the street and a bunch of strangers started pelting you with rocks for no reason.

    • Hurting someone's feelings is cruel no matter what they look like. When people attempt to cut someone down, whether they are ugly or pretty, it's disgusting and not acceptable.

    • Next you'll have me crying for the very rich.

  • The 2nd photo is better. The girl with the glasses... I font think she would be many peoples cup of tea.

    • wow, you remind me of the girls who comment on tara's photo. but a bunch of the guys are saying she's hot, and I bet she cares more what they think.

    • Show All
    • no, tara is my friend. but I'm confused as to how you can think they're both equally unattractive when almost every guy I know who knows tara thinks she's hot.

    • Because they are one is naturally unattractive and the other one is fake unattractive (as in too much make up and posing). There is a big difference between hot and pretty or beautiful.

  • Yes this happens often.Honestly I hate it.Its because people try to make they feel less self consious.They think that pretty girls don't need much attention because they already have it.Another thing is pretty/beautiful girls always been assumed as arrogant,ego,picky and bad.

  • I'm guessing the same people who commented on girl #1's pics aren't the same ones who commented on girl # 2's pics, correct? I think what this actually shows is that the people both these girls accept as "friends" are vastly different. One girl's friends comment and another girl has people she barely knows or doesn't know at all comment. Unless they don't each have private profiles, in which case my point is moot and all I can say is that people get jealous and mean.
