How can a guy have low self- esteem?
I was asked this question today by an anon, and I was so baffled by the question that I didn’t answer it, but I finally figured out how. Look at that photoset, each of those pictures had 2 things in common - the tags (“Unf” “so hot” “yum” “get in me” “perfect” etc.) and the notes, somewhere between 1k to 15k. So how can a guy have low self-esteem? Looking at these pictures and seeing the men that society calls desirable, the kind of guys that people want. Than I go and look at myself, the picture with five notes, a comment with a compliment about the shirt I’m wearing, and that’s it, or I look in the mirror and see too much fat, a skin problem, bad teeth, annoying hair, etc. And I can help but feel like “Who would want me if I look nothing like them?” and I feel like that is someone I can never be, I’ve tried - I’ve dieted, worked out, exercised, HELL, I even starved myself for about 2 weeks, nothing works. I’ve lost about 10 lbs since I got out of high school, and still I feel disgusting, because I have to sit there and look at men that are tan, toned and beautiful. A guy can feel just like a girl can, a guy can feel just as self-conscious, flawed, and undesirable as a woman can. That is how a guy can have low self-esteem, anon.
