Im 14 dating a 21 year old
To the people that said things like this, get a life, stop eating, start going to the gym, and stop being in denial.
It is normal for teen girls to think they are ugly when they see perfect girls in magazines (hopely it will inspire us to be like them and be perfect, thin, and beautiful and not like fat Americans) for the one's that think they are pretty (if you are than great) but some of them need to suck up their pride and admit that they will never be on the cover of a magazine because we are just not good enough, I know I am not.
One 14-year-old girl wrote that images in magazines make her feel upset because she knows she could never be that beautiful. In fact most boys want a girl that will love them the right way and not be full of herself.
Dr Susie Orbach, a psychotherapist and the author of Time to Talk says that the effect of media images can be crucial to vulnerable psychic of young girls who are "bombarded by millions of images of digitally manipulated, airbrushed beauty every day". There are lots of beautiful girls out there that are very ugly, mean and spiteful on the inside. These boys turn into men that just want a good woman that will love them the right way.
First of all, the perfect models and celebrities that you see in magazines and tv do look like that. Aother thing, if those people in magazines, tv, radio, etc were not perfect and beautiful than they would be on there, why do you think that normal people are not on magazines?
(they can be photoshopped too, although people on magazines are NOT photoshopped or airbrushed.) Also, Americans are just damn fat, America is the fattest country in the world.
During a study girls were asked to keep a diary were they recorded all the beauty images seen over three days and write down their thoughts. So girls concentrate less on your looks and try your best to become the good loving woman that all men want to spend the rest of their lives with.
Researchers questioned 2,000 girls from the UK and the US aged between 10 and 14 and found out that as much as 77 percent of them described themselves in negative terms.If pictures of perfect, beautiful, thin models and celebrities cant stop us from eating and being fat than I dont knw what can.For the people that say that 'everyone is beautiful' this is the biggest lie in the world, if everyone was beautiful then we would all be celebs, models on magazines, tv, catwalk.but girls all over the world FIND a guy that is going to except you for who you really are , not who u try to be!!
and be careful dont get really happy when a guy calls you beautiful because u should already know it !
But some are so self obsesed that they are beautiful that they let others feel bad about others.
