    It Frustrates Men

    I really wish more women would love themselves. Really!It is one of the most frustrating things I had to deal with when I was dating.  Women with low self-esteem.  It is was huge drain on me and a bigger drain on the possibilities of a relationship.  While I am supportive of...

    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...

    Perhaps It's Because We've Lost The Meaning Of Words?

    Isn't the problem in general, if there is a problem anyhow, that one must have a still closer look at the words that exactly define our emotions and feelings? What makes a friend, a penpal, a soulmate, a sister, a lover, a correspondence, a client, a partner, an acquintance, a...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Love One Another...Love Yourself.

    I was working a twelve hour shift in an ER a couple of years ago, and it was extremely busy.  The kind of day where you don't have time to eat, use the restroom, or sit for even a second.  Paperwork was piling up on my desk, the nurse interuppted every 5 minutes with a...

    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...

    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...

    Changing The Way We Think To Change The Way The Way We Feel

    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...

    Yes I Wish This Too!

    Because then it would make the lady strong and independent, and then a fantastic mate to enjoy her healthy mind as well as body! I know most men beat women's self esteem down, but I love to build it up and that makes her super sexy then to me!

    Love Thyself

    I believe everyone should love themselves for who they are, not what they are - not just women. I know it's difficult, but we all have to find the inner strength to accept ourselves. Easier said than done considering the fact that we live in a society that puts a strong emphasis...

    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.

    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...
