Matt_TO saidRight, but we all have moments of weakness. Those 3am moments where things we never usually say we suddenly blurt out. Perhaps he's just being real and honest because he has no one else he can really talk to about it. That's why I think it's just best that we support the guy. We all need to break down and be honest. Most people have a few sides or facets to their personality, and perhaps tonight he's just showing us his.
I'm just not buying it. Nearly all of this guy's pics are practically naked showing his body and ass (in several different positions I might add) in every shot. There is no modesty whatsoever.
He's obviously a showoff.
People who truly believe they are ugly do not take sexy evocative photos of them with their ass in the air or wearing only a soccer ball to cover their crotch. People who believe they are ugly hide themselves.
His profile says he's single but now apparently he has a boyfriend. I see inconsistent behavior and the need for attention.
He's nineteen and you're all being worked.
You and Matt are both right: he clearly does not *really* believe he is "ugly", but he is also highly insecure. It sounds contradictory, but it is possible to hold both views of oneself. This is, in fact, epidemic in Gay Nation. Many perfectly fine looking dudes, and even super hot dudes, know they're not capital-U ugly but are still insecure. (Guilty.) Some of these also seek validation in immature and annoying ways. (Not guilty, thank goodness.)
He may never grow out of the insecurity, but hopefully he'll grow out of the attention-whoring and compliment-fishing. It's hella annoying.
