Smile Three random things - August 26th 2012, 02:58 AM

1. Ladies, if a guy has a big chest (all muscle), but small arms (not extremely small, but doesn't measure up to the chest), would you still find him physically attractive? (he looks good in the face and pretty much everywhere else too)

2. Regarding suicide, why is it that people suffering physically are not considered "selfish" whereas people suffering mentally and emotionally are? I mean, in my experience, emotional and mental pain is so much worse than physical pain; this baffles me.

3. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOK30w4I4Dc <------- This is for a few certain people in my life, or rather, not in my life anymore

Ummm yeah! Just putting my thoughts and questions out to you guys!

1. Well, not all girls are superficial so if this guy is nice, has a good sense of humour, and treats me with respect I'd find him attractive.
and
2. Probably because people are stupid and believe that if a person, say was raped, they would have an excuse for an act. Whereas someone who is suffering from say depression can get pills and talk to people about it.

Honestly, if a guy is good too me, it doesn't matter what he looks like because I'll find him physically attractive because of how he makes me feel when I'm around him. Feeling good around a guy, is far more important than looking good with him.

2. Regarding suicide, why is it that people suffering physically are not considered "selfish" whereas people suffering mentally and emotionally are? I mean, in my experience, emotional and mental pain is so much worse than physical pain; this baffles me.

I personally don't find them selfish, the thing is, those people who are inconsiderate of other's mental/emotional suffering, are just that, inconsiderate. I agree, mental and emotional pain in far worse. Physical pain comes with remedies that take no effort from one self to overcome, but mental and emotional takes all of you to overcome it.

Personally, that doesn't sound bad. That sounds kinda like an average guy, you know? We all have imperfections and we don't look like super models. Even super models don't look like super models!

But to be honest, from personal experience, if I like someone, I find them very attractive. If I stop liking them (for example after a break up), they often lose something of their attractiveness. When you love someone, you often ignore or don't notice their imperfections, or you love them for their imperfections. Physical attraction is important, but people find different things attractive, and you don't have to be perfect for someone to fancy you.

I don't think physical pain is any less difficult than emotional pain. I know people who have struggled with cancer and other life threatening illnesses and spent a lot of their life in hospital and been left with lasting damage, and I know people (myself included) who have struggled/are still struggling with mental health and I honestly can't say one is easier to deal with than the other, from watching them.

However, people suffering from mental health problems are often considered selfish, or just told to pull themselves together, because mental health is invisible most of the time. If someone is physically ill, they have symptoms and a doctor can diagnose them and treat them. Mental health treatments often revolve around talking therapies (before medication is introduced) and you can't see their symptoms so well. Someone who is depressed may look very similar to someone who is just being lazy or grumpy and some misguided people think that mental health problems aren't real and are used by people as excuses. Honestly, it all depends on the people involved.
