A female friend of mine has recently been calling herself fat, and talking about losing ~25lb. She is in no way skinny, and losing 25lb wouldn't be harmful to her, that's not the issue.
She's not fat, she's very sexy and curvy, she just doesn't see it. I would like her to see that she really has a great body and doesn't need to lose any weight; but am unsure how to do so other than telling her that directly, which she dismisses.
Most Helpful Girl
If you have a really good-looking single guy friend that would be interested in taking her out, set them up. She will believe that she is attractive if a good-looking guy is interested in dating her because she will figure that hot guys only want to date hot girls and so she must be a hot girl. Basically there is no other way to make a girl believe that she is not fat and ugly...unless you were to just start making out with her yourself haha which is not going to happen most likely unless you like her as more than a friend.
Also, you could just tell your guy friends to compliment her because she doesn't believe she is sexy. If a bunch of guys are telling her that she's hot, she's going to believe it eventually. I think part of the reason she's not believing what you say is because you are only one guy and you are also her friend so she figures that you HAVE to be nice to her and make her feel good.1
