Why is it that when someone who isn't that skinny asks if they look okay that its fine, but when someone skinnier asks then they are fishing for compliments? So people who aren't in shape can have self esteem issues or be uncertain with how they look but in shape people can't? What's wrong with getting peoples opinions or getting a little reassurance?
Skinny people with body issues can ask if they look ok, but doing so in the presence of a fatty is somewhat insensitive. It's like the teenage girl freaking out over one pimple, when her friend beside her has massive acne problems all over her body.
The scenario you are illustrating is one where a person complains about an issue that is of small magnitude, within earshot of someone who is having the same issue, but at a huge magnitude. You are sure to get the scorn of others who are having the same problem, but to a much larger degree than you.
Today, this scenario goes far beyond "earshot". Bloggers and posters who complain about small problems online, will likely be swarmed with the millions of people who come across the blog who have bigger issues.
Bottom line is, don't complain online. You won't get any sympathy. Lots of trolls out there, and really, the opinion of faceless anonymous people are irrelevant.
I don't know… there's nothing wrong with it per se… but a lot of the time it seems fake. it really depends on how someone delivers it. like i HATE it when skinny girls r like, "omg I'm so fat haha" …. like what do u want us to do, shower u with reassurance?
i personally believe that anyone can be insecure about anything, no matter how u look or feel. I'm just explaining it based on certain experiences iv had
Because of the stereotype that skinny people are attractive so whenever someone complain about it, they will be assumed as fishing for a compliment. Though some of these girls really self conscious, people never want to bother sympathize her just because she fit the beauty standard.
well a lot of people assume attractive people know they're attrative. And I know that's not always true, especiallly for younger girl, but when I see some of those questions, the pictures they link to clearly show that they know what they have. Like the girl in your profile picture, she's beautiful and she knows it, otherwise she wouldn't have taken a picture like that. And then there are those questions like "I'm 110lbs, have a thin waist, big bum and big boobs, am I still attractive?" I mean really? That one really is just fishing for compliemnts
I know how it is. I used to be kinda big and in finally lost it all.. almost too much apparently. But I still feel big. And for those who have always been skinny and can't gain weight.. I know them too. It's equally a struggle.
I'm skinny too I guess but I don't know people are like that to me too. Sometimes I feel pressured to go on diets too because all my friends are. They always get mad at me when I say that they are lucky because they're healthy while I'm underweight.
I'm with you girl, it's like if other think you're thin.. you better think it too or you're full of sht and asking for compliments... but that's crap bc most girls think they are fat, even if they aren't.
