  • Maybe because you do not think that you are pretty. Insecure maybe...
    Do not take that the wrong way. I was insecure for years....years...
    It is a journey for some people to love themselves...a journey that can make your
    life so much more worth wild.

  • 1) maybe you are jealous. 2) you put way too much importance on being the prettiest of everyone. There will always be someone prettier than you. Accept that and find things in yourself that are wonderful and incomparable to anyone. Life is not a contest.

  • Your girlfriend's husband said this, about the girlfriend of someone else?

    Here's the real question: Why do you care about it? This is sort of like my husband telling you he thinks Nicole Kidman is pretty. It's a statement. Has NOTHING to do with you, right? Because MY husband isn't looking at dating YOU.

    STBX = soon to be ex? So why care about his girlfriend? I think the real issue is perhaps a bit of jealousy?

    Good cure for that: Remember all the horrible things about STBX. There's a reason he's STBX. And SHE gets to deal with it. Probably won't be pretty for too long, because she'll be tearing her hair out.

    Worry about YOU, OK? Not about what other people think.
