Default Why do people care so much about their looks these days?

It's a waste of time. Not trying to offend anyone but people these days are just to soft. They care so much about what others think about them and they spend too much time trying to please other people. We have boys trying to lose weight and get those overrated things you call six pack abs (yes abs are overrated), and we have girls getting surgery to get bigger boobs. For what? You don't need to do that. Who cares. This world needs to change and it needs to change now. Am I the only one who feel this way?

And also, The Mayans probably should've been right, the world probably should've ended last year. People losing their lifes over nothing. People getting treated wrong, it's just too much violence in this world. Humans in general are stupid. They let others persuade them to do things like doing drugs for example. And people that relies on drugs are soft. No offense to anyone that does drugs but you get the point. These are reasons why I don't like other human beings. I'll talk but I have to get to know you.

I know this thread was just meant for me to talk about people caring about what others thought about them, but while I was typing, I started thinking about how this is all messed up.

I just wish I lived on another planet that was peaceful and supported life. I hope I'm not the only one who feels this way.

Default Re: Why do people care so much about their looks these days?

Personally, I care about my looks. I care cause now.. cause I never used to care. When I didn't care about my looks I was bullied at school, at home and on the internet. When I didn't care about my looks, their words turned me into the person I am today.. someone who can find nothing beautiful about herself.. counting calories and restricting foods for two years and counting...Purging and cutting and starving.. I care about my looks.. cause I never used to care








You take away the pain, and I thank you for that

People care about their looks and they would be lying if they said otherwise. I used to be among those who cared the most; I always wanted to be that badass guy with the top shape body. I've sacrificed so much for that 6 pack, but in the end, who even gives a F? I came to realize that I must please myself first and foremost, and that's how I'll please to others. It's true.

Also it's the society and the branding/marketing that's putting it all in our brains. "Buy our product, look like this, get that". That's how it all works, and it's a shame, really, because it has divided the societies in a multitude of groups. It's not weird if you care about looks; it's a good thing, as long as you don't take it to the complete extreme and become obsessed with it.

I'm talking about to the point where people actually cares what other people thinks about them. That's the stupid part.

People judge each other all the time. Especially by how they look.
That's what you notice first about a person, the way they look and then you get to know them and their personality.
I mean someone might look like a complete tramp but they might be the nicest person you'll ever meet but if they look like a tramp you're gonna be put off talking to them cos you think they're just a scruffy weirdo.

Default Re: Why do people care so much about their looks these days?

I care about my looks very much. it's how you present yourself to the world. i think it's very important. not to say that i give much of a shit that many people think but i don't want to be walking around looking like i don't give a shit about myself and how you dress really does say a lot about you.

it also makes it easier to get those ladies. i love to dress and i love fitness. come at me brah.

while relying on drugs to get through the day is soft for a lot of people. considering what some people have to experience day in and day out i'm not surprised. if i was a victim of sexual assault or molestation i don't know what i would do with myself

Your looks are generally the very first impression people get of you, if you live in society it kind of matters.

I try to look good but I don't do it for others, I do it for myself, I don't exercise because I'm a slave of society, I exercise because I like to exercise, if the only side effect is being healthy then yay.

People care about their looks because there's always going to be those someones who's going to really care about your appearance and they have this insecurity about it ^^ I personally am not a fan of my appearance but I don't care much. Even online it's rare I share photos of how I look. Mainly facebook and here (Since here is a nice community don't need to worry much about judgement). Otherwise I'm very secretive.... so maybe I do care to a degree... Hm interesting. Never though of this before ^^
