I'm 15 and I had always felt very self-conscious about the way I look. So one day I decided to post a picture of me and my friend on this site. I wanted to know who was prettier. The vast majority of the people on here said my friend was prettier. Some guys said I wasn't their type, I looked slightly chubby ( I'm 5'4 ,118 pounds), I was ugly. I felt extremely hurt. I thought I was ugly. I carried it with me for days. But Then I decided I do not have to listen to that insecurity in my head. I should not let other people define who I am. Other people's words, who I don't even know, I'm not going to give them the power over who I am. I have no control over the way I look. After receiving those negative comments, I started embracing my flaws, I stopped wearing makeup. I learned to love myself. Now I'm very content with the way I look and what other people think don't matter to me anymore. Now, I go to that section and try to find beauty in everyone. I don't understand if you have nothing nice to say why say anything at all?
Hmm. People will post their opinions based on what they say. You asked how you look or something right? They gave you their opinions. It's not about how mean people can be, it's rather how blunt they can be instead.
I'm glad you didn't let it get to you, but I'm also glad people tell the truth and not coddle everyone. I say my honest opinion and if that's offensive, so be it.
I'm also glad if they're mean even because I hope it discourages young, naive girls from posting in the HDIL section. I've seen pics of young girls, pretty much soft porn, and do you know how many pervs and pedos there are on this site? I'd much rather they call you ugly, than convince you to send nudes and then you end up getting bullied and kill yourself.
I don't answer any how do I look questions. On my old account, I once posted a picture of myself and two people posted a rude comment that offended me greatly. I blocked them but I couldn't stop remembering what the user said for weeks. Because of that user, I made the incredibly impulsive decision to close my account. I came back a couple weeks eventually I found one of the users and blocked them again, but I have yet to find the other.
Yep. They ask so they get honest answers, not what they want to hear. I don't understand why people ask questions if they can't take the true opinions of others. I know I'd much rather people be bluntly honest with me than sugarcoat it. Take it as constructive criticism & work on ways to improve yourself.
