A lot of GAG members say they are ugly. I find it hard to believe there are that many ugly people on one web site. In general I don't come across that many people that can be considered ugly so why so many here?
You are on an internet forum primarily for people who have relationship difficulties.
Internet ---> Higher than normal proportion of ugly people
Forum ---> Higher than normal proportion of ugly people
Relationship Difficulties ---> More common for ugly people
There is just lots of ugly people here.
Also differing definitions of ugly plays a part. I'd say I regularly encounter ugly people, whereas you think you rarely do, I'm assuming what you would say is ugly is what I would say is hideous. What you think is below average or slightly unattractive is what I'd call ugly. Ect.
It's a lot of low self esteem, people come here often because they've struggled in relationships or they may never have had one... Others do just feel unattractive. I understand it since I feel the same way about myself, although I agree that there are many attractive people who don't think they are.
They probably just express themselves In a more dramatic way since it's the internet. It's easy to have a bad day and then come on here saying ugly you are and doing something stupid to blow off some steam or whatever
Seriously? Have you looked at the faces in a crowd recently?
If they stopped comparing theirselves to models and actors they would have much higher self esteem. Who the heck care if someone has 10 pounds more than they sould? Or a big nose? Or thin lips? Or god knows what? Perfection is not real.
I also wonder why. The word-ugly has been abused, just because one is single doesn't make him or her ugly. to me most people are average looking, and I don't come across any that is ugly. how ugly can one be?
it boil down to esteem issues, I would never believe I am ugly even if the others tell me so.
