Why do girls post pictures on facebook/myspace and then caption "OMG Im so ugly!"?

On multiple occasions I see girls posting pictures of themselves on myself and then caption it with

"OMG im so ugly"

"Bad picture"

"Im so fat"

Doesnt it make sense that if you didnt like the picture you would not post it up??

Ugh, its a major pet peeve of mine. And, maybe if I could understand I would not be so extremely annoyed by .

    Obviously they have a low self esteem already. I would say there is a simple answer to this though. When they post the pic in question and someone responds, "that's not a bad pic" or "you're cute, nice picture", it reassures them and makes them feel better. It's like my mother in-law. Whenever she cooks a big dinner she makes comments about how something could have been cooked better or prepared diferently despite the fact that the meal is fantastic. When we all tell her how good it is it makes her feel better about herself and the job she did.

    i feel the same way.

    really i think it's a) so that they can pretend they are not offended if some one else were to critisise their picture


    b) so that other people will comment on their picture saying things like: awww no ur pretty, this is such a great picture, don;t say that ur gorgeous.

    they feel the need to raise their self esteem

    its stupid.

    because they are attention seeking whores?

    they never actually thing they are ugly, it's called fishing for compliments, which apparently makes them feel good because they have nothing better in their lives...

    maybe they need Jesus to save them :)

    They make themselves feel bad so everyone else will say, "You're not ugly! You're gorgeous, blablah" It is annoying.
