do you think they are fishing for compliments?

The media shows women unattainably "perfect," so when even an attractive girl sees it, she can be brainwashed into thinking she's ugly. It's to the point where it doesn't matter what you look like or even how other people see you. Anyone can think they're ugly. It's comparable to body dysmorphia in eating disorders. The skinniest girls can look in the mirror and see something totally different.
Sure, sometimes people put themselves down in front of others for attention or compliments, but I prefer not to assume that. I compliment freely. Besides, if they really want it that bad and it makes them feel better, why wouldn't I? It takes two seconds, and what they do with it is their business.
