Today I was chatting with one of my best friends. Something that he said really bothered and surprised me. He was asking about the trip I had to Turkey and I told him how nice it was. Suddenly he reacted by saying, "if I were you, it wouldn't be that nice..." I asked why and he answered it would be because the people I went with had no nice looks whatsoever. I didn't really understand him at first and really thought he was joking. Then he started explaining that when we were going to faraway place like that, it's important to go with people who were handsome (he's gay by the way) because we'd take a lot of pictures and they were going to be in the pictures. And another reason would be, going for a trip with "nerds" like them would not be fun. Well, then, he was serious. I was thinking maybe he had a reason to say that because he was good looking. But he really disappointed me by saying that because well, I am not hot and I'm an average joe. And the fact that we had been through ups and downs together, and became best friends as we are today, I'm even more disappointed that he couldn't think that that kind of statement would hurt me, since he knew how I was struggling with accepting myself when I was early in university years. Did you guys ever have any experience like this? How did you react?
