Yes, I Am.

It's not that I hate it or anything, but all the freaking time people would call me anorexic, and etc... then finally when everyone stopped and starting to make fun of me for always "over-eating," even when I still was the same size... It was bad. But yet still I am naturally thin, and eating right now. No, I don't starve myself, yes I eat very often thank you. No I do not work out, yes I exercise sometimes but just recently started this year. Yes, I am skinny. I am aware of my size thank you... Jeez... I mean I got picked on for being skinny, and it was awful it's like what can I do about it??? Better to be picked on for being skinny rather than fat?? No, think again. Because I have a cousin, close to my age, and she's well.... big-ish... But you know what? She got made fun of for it, but turned the tables on me and said it's better than being freakishly skinny! It was like a punch in the face, because everyone laughed in agreement. Just wow. And men tend to see me and write me off because "I'm too skinny," what the hell.

Men will not continue to "write you off" because of your body type. Some men are attracted to a variety of body types, and plenty of men prefer a very thin woman (though perhaps not as many men as women tend to think-- lots of women don't understand female sex appeal and instead think that whatever sells products and clothing is sexy to men. Not always true: runway models for instance are thin bc the fashions theoretically "drape" better on the tall thin frame and that shows off the cut of the fabric, not bc it's sexier). As a woman who has been thin all my life (and I'm 35), I can tell you there are lots of men out there who prefer it. I also think that unfortunately lots of those men are annoying little whiners-- I don't like men who have a "type" or think they can expect women to look a certain way. I prefer men who like a variety of kinds of beauty, and those men are always, always better in bed. For some reason I ran into plenty of wealthy men or older men who just loved a super thin frame on a woman. Perhaps they saw it as a sign of status or privilege because lots of women covet it, and it can make you appear more graceful too, which some guys find classy. Whatever. Those guys are dorks. If you're pretty, you're pretty. You can't deny lots of super-thin women are pretty, as are lots of not-very-slender women. Also, I've definitely encountered MEN who are envious of me bc I am thin. Some have admitted it and said they thought I must have considered myself too good for them. I get catty comments from them, more when I was younger and interacting with less mature guys. If a guy thinks it's ok to come out and criticize your supposed lack of attractiveness, that probably means he's insecure or envious. Most ppl won't say anything at all if someone is simply not attractive to them. If he seems like he has too much to prove, like he really really really wants you to know how he thinks you're too skinny, consider asking yourself why he wants so badly to impress you with that idea.

Woohooo :D

I know... she is very rude. It's not, both parties have it bad. I love tall people, no lie. I am personally happy that I have grown some inches! Yay, yay for you and your wonderful body. Since you're a woman, gorgeous body :]
