Yesterday I posted this question and I really appreciate everybody's advice and I thought you might like to know how things progressed.
My friend called me last night to ask if his friend had called me yet. I said "No, but that doesn't really surprise me given what you told him about me when I accidentally overheard your conversation!" He was silent for a second, then said "How much did you hear?" I told him I heard him tell the guy that I wasn't hot or even pretty and even though he did describe me as funny and smart, did he really think his friend was going to call me when he doesn't even describe me as pretty and he's supposed to be my friend?
This was his response: "I'm sorry, but I couldn't lie to the guy, he's my friend!" I applied some of the advice people here suggested and said "Maybe you don't think I'm pretty, but maybe this guy would have! Now we'll never know, will we? Because he's not going to call me thanks to you!"
Then I asked him point-blank why he described me that way. I know, I was asking for it, but I just had to know. He said:
"Sweetie, you're so sweet and funny and smart, but you're also overweight and flat-chested, you wear glasses, you're just not what people would call pretty! I'm sorry, I shouldn't have said what I said, you're right, maybe he would have thought you were pretty anyway."
I'm mad and sad right now. I really don't know what to do now. Part of me wants to hide forever, and part of me wants to diet and get skinny and get contacts and a boob job and show everyone!

Aww hon. I'm so sorry. Your questions broke my heart! If you want to improve yourself,do it for YOU. If you can get your confidence back,Mr. Right will come to you. Your so-called friend seems like a pretty shallow person.
