Imagine:
1. a really really really ugly girl was crying.
2. You walked to her and ask her why she was crying.
3. She told you that she was crying because she is ugly.

What would you do?

Well, I would read her the lyrics of Christina Aguilera's "Beautiful" and tell her to cheer up, because the world doesn't revolve around looks. I would tell her to keep being a good person, well, if she was a good person. I would only do this if I was cool with that person, though, not just some stranger.

I would tell her that she is pretty inside and out.

Zappy says: "Live with it."

Then walks off without turning my head back to look at her again. xD Hehheh...I'm so cruel. But seriously, I think I'd just ignore her and walk by pretending I didn't hear her cause I don't like getting involved with other people's business.

I'd tell her that no one is ugly and that looks are superficial ._.; No one has any right to tell another person that they're ugly or that they can't do anything right, etc. You shouldn't let your opinions be swayed by hurtful words like that -- everyone should be happy with who they are and anyone who says otherwise is pathetic.

If it's also about people liking you and stuff, then... being "ugly" isn't always bad. It means people will fall in love with you and like you for WHO you are and not WHAT you are. I, personally, would not want to be loved because I look cute or something stupid like that... I'd rather someone love me for me. o_o

Ooo...I'm frequently trying to help somebody with this. And, I've told them everything that Lightning just mentioned. But...it doesn't seem to click in for them.

But, yeah. Since I just said that that is the kinda of stuff I already say...then wouldn't that mean that is what I would say?

This is really nice ;) and very very true indeed.


I definately don't want to marry a person who only concerns about looks. No matter how pretty a person is, ppl'll still get bored if they see you everyday. Besides, ppl get old, and the younger ones always look nicer. If someone is to marry a person which liked his/her looks, she/he would probably get miserable days when they become old!

If all she cares about are looks...

Well, if she really was butt-ugly...I'd tell her to get a rockin body so she could show THAT off all the time...

I would never EVER tell any ugly person that it is inner beauty that counts, cause your basically telling them that inner beauty is all they got. If an ugly girl was crying cause she was ugly, well, thats the face God gave her.

This is mean! I don't remember EVER seeing anyone that I considred ugly, mostly because I care more about the PERSON than their looks. Their looks are only superficial, and it only matters what they are like and how they treat other people.

Physical beauty is often in the eye of the beholder. You tell me someone looks hot...and I'll most likely say they look like a twig.

Inner beauty is all anyone actually has... You're physically attractive to different people. But, your inner beauty should shine through no matter what.

I'd say that all that matters is personality. Inside is what counts and whoever told you that your ugly isnt good on the inside.

Id say, "Who cares? So am I. Let's go share a molten chocolate cake." I'd take her hand, and we'd skip off into the sunset with visions of hot fudge chocolate in our minds....

Aww! I hate it when people think they are ugly! It makes me so sad!

I'd tell her physical looks didn't matter and she was pretty inside, that's what counts, and then I might play her TLC's un-pretty... actually maybe not that, I might play her one of Delta's songs...

The avatar aptly matches the commentary.

I'll just give one of my all-time favourite quotes by a very wise man, and leave the conversation:


Woman on Street: Sir, you are drunk; very, very drunk.
Winston Churchill: Madame, you are ugly; very, very ugly.
I shall be sober in the morning.



I'm just being facetious, mind you -- regarding Dakota; Churchill's words are still quite nice.


Perhaps, this is one situation to "give every man thy ear but few thy voice"?

I'll probually do nothing, since I'm not the type of person who walks up to strangers... But if I do, I'll be at a loss for words. ._.

True...I don't think I'd go up to a completely random person. But if it is someone I know (and in my case, my friend) then of course I'll try to do something.

If she is one of your friends/ classmates?

If then, of course I'll go comfort her. =] If I'm her friend, I must really like her, and that's more important than being pretty. x]

I don't like lying (even though I can't seem to stop myself doing it XD), so I'd probably say, "Oh, don't worry" It's not actually saying she's pretty, but at the same time, not hurting her feelings either. I wouldn't exactly say, go get some plastic surgery, as that would just be plain cruel. And no one's that cruel are they?

jynx

I'd probalby say don't worry.
But I'd definately NOT say "you are pretty"
