I hate seeing posts here, or on internet forums where people complain about how ugly they are. They claim people make fun of them for being ugly, and that they are depressed from their looks. So someone requests to see a picture, and they post a picture of a gorgeous person. Just spent the last few days giving someone advice because I've gone through an ugly stage a few years ago, but changed. I finally convinced her to post a picture of herself. She is so damn beautiful. Most guys I know would give anything to be with her. There is nothing at all ugly about this woman. I told her she isn't ugly, it's all in her head and it's just BDD. She took offense to that and stopped talking to me.
Most Helpful Girl
1) Many, many girls (mostly) and guys do that in order to recieve more attention, approval and comformation. They want people to tell them how beautiful they are. They are what we call "Attention seekers". When you try to confront them about it or try to burst their bubble, they get you out of their way and try to find other people who won't understand their big play.
2) They truly have low self-esteem They just can't help it. It's something that's built-in inside their head saying "You're ugly! You're ugly! You're ugly!". And, no matter how hard you try to convince them otherwise, they won't believe you. They change how they think when they decide to, not for anyone else. And, they may never change at all.
In the end of the day, you did what you can do. You were honest about it. It's her loss. I hope oneday she realizes how beautiful she is and that she wasted too much time crying over something that's only in her head.1
