    Oh, Ma Cherie...

    Somehow, the wonderful longing of hapless romantics like myself is totally lost on these girls.   - "OUCH!"  - "Oh, the wondrous poetry of nature: that it's most beautiful creation is covered in thorns.  My attempts to grasp it are repelled...

    Don't Forget To Be Yourself

    It breaks my heart when I hear that my girlfriends either wish that they were more beautiful or could lose a few pounds... And they're only in their teenage years. I don't know who or what is putting this idea of "I need to be pretty to be happy" into their heads. Maybe it's a...

    Myself Included....

    I think women need to be kinder to each other. I can't tell you how many women I've met that have some sort of horrible complex about some fault that doesn't even exist, that all stemmed from something that some other woman said to them or about them.

    You Are More Attractive Than You Think.

    Hello women of the world, I am a bisexual who has had long relationships with a couple women, and short ones as well, and wanted to share a few thoughts with you. Some women blame men for the pressure they feel to wear sexy clothes, wear makeup, lose weight, color their...

    Spectrum Extremes

    I couldn't agree with the title of this group more.  Kudo's to Ms.Valentine for making it.  You could say it for both men and women, but women do tend to have the problem more often.  I get to a point with my girlfriends where I can't tolerate trash talk about...

    A lot if not most women aren't happy with their

    weight or boob, butt, hips size. They may not realize it, but the reason they aren't happy is because they compare themselves subconsciously to the "perfect" women the see on tv. You think women in the cave man days gave a flying sh*t what they looked like? Course not because...

    From A Guy's Perspective

    I have so many female friends (mostly here on EP) that have such a negative image of themselves.  They see themselves as unloveable or unattractive or not worthy of being desired intimately.  My heart goes out to all of them.  Frankly, some of these women are very desirable...

    But I Understand It Can Be Difficult.

     Like a lot of other people, I'm hardest on myself. I think we all just need to give ourselves a little slack sometimes. No one's perfect, but we expect ourselves to be. When it comes to body image, especially, more women should take on the sentiments of Eve's Rib, an...

    I Really Wish They Would

    There are so many beautiful women in the world and so many don't see that in themselves. It seems to be a steadily growing epidemic and it's heartbreaking. There are men too that don't love themselves. I know because I was one of them. Maybe the world would be a better place if...
