Absolutely. I'd be jealous of him if he was able to be content with anything. The dude has to criticize and argue with everything and has pretty serious control issues. Physically, he was dealt an awesome hand. He's gorgeous and manages to be totally in shape despite living a lifestyle just as unhealthy as me and my friend (both overweight). Women throw themselves at him and he is a master at manipulating people to get exactly what he wants. Nothing bad ever happens to him, either, as his luck is incredible. He can break the law CONSTANTLY and in the open and never get caught.

He'd be perfect if it weren't for the fact that he has to constantly work to stave off depression and is constantly anxious about something. It's impossible for this guy to relax.

Doesn't matter where I stand or who next too, I always look like shit.

Just standing next to a lamp post can me feel insecure about my weight.

I generally don't reply to anonymous comments, but I will make this exception. Your view of yourself is not the same as how outsiders view you. You live in your body and know it all too well. Others don't focus in on it the way you do. Someone finds you attractive and pleasant to look at just the way you are. If YOU feel insecure about your weight, then only you can take the necessary steps to work on that. But don't let weight alone define you. Many large people are successful and secure. I LOVE all the really big male comedians who make fun of their own sizes [Bruce Bruce, Ralphie May, Louie Anderson, Gabriel Iglesias, Lavell Crawford, John Pinette]. Just to get you smiling a little bit and feeling better, check this out.

@Cool. I was kidding, I'm fucking gorgeous. But thank you!

I took you at your commented word. Looks like I should have stuck to my policy of not responding to anonymous comments. This is why I stopped doing it. Always either a joke or a cheap shot.

No, don't be upset. Now see I have a list of comedians to look up on Youtube .

Btw I did not down vote your comment.

Whatever. I just feel like you set me up. That is not a good feeling. And all the comedians are FAT! Anyway, my heart and intentions were right. You have to deal with your own.

I read what your comment said, took it as sincere and true, and broke out of my routine of not responding to anonymous comments to take a chance at trying to cheer you up. YOU played me. You gave no indication that you were joking in your original comment. And since you posted anonymously, that is my hint and clue that you knew what you were doing, even though I did not. But like I said in my last comment, I meant well and offered good things from my heart. If you have no guilt or sorrow for setting someone up and playing them in to your hand for whatever purpose, then that is your problem. I see no reason why you would do such a thing to a stranger. BUT, one thing is for certain - I WILL NOT BREAK MY HABIT AGAIN FOR ANY REASON to respond to an anonymous post or comment. That is the good lesson I am taking from this encounter.
You may be gorgeous on the outside (usually people who call themselves such are conceited and arrogant), but this incident tells me and yourself that your insides need a complete makeover.
I won't respond to any further comments from you. Hope I entertained you to your pleasure and amusement for the night.
Later.

I was kidding about the gorgeous thing too, shouldn't have done that. Should stop making not so straight forward jokes.

I get why you thought I was being serious, my bad, and that you were being sincere.

Night.

I've looked scruffy for so long that I feel like I can confidently be compared to most non-movie star kind of guys, it's not that I'm nearly as attractive but simply that I'm rather aloof now a days.

None of my friends are drastically more attractive than I am.

@Wunderscore None of my friends are drastically more attractive than I am.

I love how you loved his comment. The fact that you did that taught me a valuable lesson. Thank you Bailey.

@Wunderscore I thought it was funny, so I loved it.

Oh, okay. I thought you loved it for another reason, but I still learned a lesson. YOU CAN'T TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME

The only way they could make you look like shit is if they themselves were shit.

If you are a guy, try standing next to Channing Tatum or a Calvin Klein model. If you are a gal, try standing next to Megan Fox or a Victoria Secret model.

Those are YOUR ideal images of beauty or great looking. Believe it or not, some people would find the mentioned names as "ugly" or "unattractive." Those that you find to be "ugly" or "repulsive" are quite beautiful and desirable to others. Sayings like "it takes all kinds" and "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" don't exist for no reason at all.

The idea of "beauty" in the context of nature vs nurture is debatable. On the other hand there are overwhelming evidence that suggests we are hardwired and predisposed to some degree. I do understand that people have different taste in regards of aesthetics, and that is a matter of choice. There are reasons why you favor one set of looks over the other. And those are built in to us, for instance the golden ratio. We tend to perceive things in that realm to be beautiful/elegant. Study semiotics and you'll get a hint on what attracts us.

I personally don't like how the media perceive the idea of "beauty" but I also think that there are reason why Brad Pitt or Will Smith are viewed as "good looking." One of the reason is that if you look at their face, you'll see that it is mirrored almost perfectly.

You know what the people who say, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" are called? Ugly people. Just kidding (not really).

And I have no problems with your perceptions of or about anything. I simply pointed out that regardless of any study, some people find "fat" or "ugly" attractive and beautiful. If I call it "fat" or "ugly," that does not make it so nationally or world wide. I have always laughed at beauty contests or the world's best looking person. Says who and on what grounds? And NOBODY has ever gone around the world and looked at every single man or woman alive to decide who is the best looking! Those results are skewed and absurd.
I personally have never looked at men in any way regarding good looks. I am not wired that way. Brad Pitt or Will Smith mean nothing to me in the looks department. I view men as men, and I see stature, size, and muscles. I don't see handsome or attractive.
I see all the beauty I need to in the vast numbers of women surrounding me. I know what I like and find pleasing to my eyes without doing any research. I have a post about the ugliest woman I have ever seen being good looking to someone and is probably somebody's mother. Huge women have no trouble finding men who want to love, marry, and give them children.
As far as the OP goes, If you put yourself beside whoever is the "best looking" male or female friend you have, then brought in several thousand people to vote, I am sure the results would be surprising and revealing. YOU would actually receive votes by some people over your friend. That is why I said what I did in my original comment.

Ofcourse people will vote for me. I'm a genetic goldmine. I suggest you reread the OP, it is said in there that, "There is always that friend that makes you look like shit just by standing next to them." I simply disagreed with your comment, "The only way they could make you look like shit is if they themselves were shit." I'm providing evidences/studies that it is the opposite. Good looking people overshadow other people. I don't know about you but I'm not a hypocrite and I'm just being honest when I say some people are just ugly and some are beautiful. My only problem is when people deny that fact. There's nothing wrong with being ugly so please don't try and make a cliche excuse like, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." That's weak, that's a slap in the face to ugly people. I think it's better to accept that than deny it so that way, they'll be more confident about themselves. Personally, id choose a woman with great personality over a beautiful one. So my point is, there's nothing wrong with being ugly. That's the problem with the media and society, they make ugly people feel bad. So I say, if your ugly, be proud! Who cares what other people think about you? Look at flava flave, Jay z and 50 cent theyre like the ugliest mofos ive ever seen yet they get booties and fame. So yes, being ugly is ok.

Beauty is not a FACT - it is a preference and choice.
There is NO beauty or ugly measure gauge. If I say a newborn baby is "ugly," someone else will walk by and say "look at the cute little baby."
You may think you are being honest, but now you are also being conceited and presumptuous. You over step your own knowledge by saying "there's nothing wrong with being ugly." The saying about beauty in the eye of the beholder is NOT a cliche - it is the truth and more "factual" than anything you could possibly say. These sayings exist for a reason, and have been time tested. They are as good and reliable as any study or report you could possibly dig up.
I personally find "fat" or "overweight" women to be a turn off and undesirable - and even "ugly." But I know for a FACT, that many men actually find it attractive and a TURN ON. There are men who ONLY want fat women, and they see "beauty" in it.
Another saying that you would poo poo is "One man's junk is another man's treasure." The woman YOU discard as "trash" will be scooped up by another man. Do you think that all those men with "ugly" or "fat" women walk around in shame or embarrassment? HELL NO! I have seen lots of skinny men with "ugly" "fat" women and they are all over each other in public.
Your "beauty" issue is much like people who have a bad voice problem. If you have ever watched American Idol, there are actually masses of people who THINK they have a great voice and can really sing. They fully believe they sound great. But once they open their mouths, they screech, howl, can't carry a tune or sing on key at all. They are crushed to hear the judges tell them that they can not sing at all. Beauty is much the same. Many people THINK they are beautiful or pretty, but they are not. I have been around girls who thought they were "knock outs" and they were quick to let everyone know. But to me, many of them were not going to get a second look by me.
At least in my singing/music example, there is an actual musical scale that measures tone, key, and pitch. But I will say again, Beauty is subjective, preference, and one's own choosing. I think you are in over your head on this one and need to take off the "blinders" so your vision and horizons will broaden. If you don't know what blinders are, look it up. They are used on horses for a specific purpose.

Wait, so do you agree with me or not? I am very confused now. You said there are ugly people, then you say the contrary about "beauty." If you haven't gotten my point from my previous comments, then I don't think responding with another full length comment will be of any success. Just because other people love or like the ugly person, does not remove the fact that they are ugly. I'm saying that some aspects of beauty are subjective and some are objective. Take colors for instance, when we see the color RED, we get a specific emotional response. We see this theory/technique in the media. Our response to that stimuli might have been innate in us because back when we were cavemen, we see the color red in blood and we associate that color with that. It's a matter of survival. I know I said I wouldn't make another lengthy comment but I just can't resist. I wish I am a better communicator.

You have clearly missed my point. YOU or ME do not decide what "ugly" and/or "beauty" are. That is up to each and every individual. You have clearly decided that you know and that you are the measure of such. I say it can't be known except by each "beholder." I know what "ugly" and "beauty" are for ME, but I know for certain I am not the standard or measure that all other people use or go by. That is where WE differ.
Anything you can name, will have varying responses and reactions. Colors, animals, flowers, jewelry, shoes, clothing, automobiles, and on and on - all are "ugly" or "beautiful" depending on the person observing and evaluating. You can not possibly tell a person that if you say someone is "ugly" and the person beside you says they are "beautiful" that they are WRONG! Why do you think there is a thing called CHOICE?
I wish you well in being the beauty and ugly meter for the world. Good luck with that one. You will need lots of it.

I disagree with that claim. As I said, ugly and beauty have objective qualities as well as subjective. Yes, you can be attracted to an ugly person and see them as "beautiful" but that doesn't mean they are not ugly. Ugly is ugly like how fat is fat. You can be attracted to fat but that doesn't mean they are not fat.

There's a reason why Brad Pitt is labeled as beautiful/good looking and Quasimodo as ugly. Now, you can be attracted to Quasimodo more than Brad Pitt but that doesn't mean Quasimodo is not ugly. And if you're preference is like that, I recommend you visit a psychiatrist.

Since your claims are self absorbed, I will decline any recommendations or suggestions you have for me. My last comment summed the issue and argument. You go ahead and keep deciding what is "beauty" and "fat" for everyone, and I will continue allowing each and every person (including myself) to determine that for themselves.
