    I hear my friends say they don't like dating

    or sleeping with skinny boys because they feel like they might break them and it really hurts my feeling because I feel like nobody will find me attractive because I'm underweight and you can see my bones stick out sometimes, I don't feel normal and I try to tell them to stop...

    I hate being skinny with a big appetite.

    I always have to order 2 combo meals just to feel full. It's not like i gain any weight either.

    I've been skinny all my life

    and I'm so sick and tired of people telling me that I need to gain weight. I have boobs but I feel like a stick with boobs. I want curves but still I will not gain weight for anyone. I don't give a damn what society or who says, I like the way I am!

    I find this annoying.

    Mainly because so many curvy girls get angry at me if I say that I don't like my body. They say "you don't have any fat on you you should try being me!" Just because I'm skinny doesn't mean that I have the ideal body

    I'm not that into food. I wish I didn't have to eat. It's a waste of time. I'd rather drink water and tea all day!

    I'm fairly skinny and I've always been.

    5'7" and 119 lbs. I can eat as much as I want and never gain weight. I'm not saying that's a great thing either. There are times when I like being skinny and times when I don't. It just depends.

    I hate it when people say things like "omg you

    look anorexic you're so skinny omg" as if comparing someone to a eating disorder is a perfectly okay thing to do. It's really not.

    I consider myself skinny.

    The reason why is because I don't look like Beyoncé or Kim k. They have way better bodies then me. Even if their bodies are fake mine is not even close to hot like theirs. I consider myself skinny. I love my body :)

    who could eat everything. I have such a small stomach; I barely eat anything and I'm full. It gets annoying when there's really good food and I want seconds and thirds of it, but can't because I'll explode >.<

    but I'm still skinny and I'm tired of it. I don't know why some girls wanna be skinny. NOBODY wants to be skinny. I get jealous of girls with thicker curvier bodies. I'm trying to work my legs so my thighs can touch a little and get a bigger butt.
