@MissPine:  I do! I don’t even like looking at myself in the mirror in a public washroom. Seriously, there will be girls in there fixing their hair or makeup or whatever, and then there is me –  I avoid making eye contact with myself and hightail it outta there. I have some body image issues, obviously… not even with my body so much. It’s my face. Does that sound depressing or what? It’s something that I need to work on.

@MissPine:  meh only when I know I didn’t put 5 mins of effort into my appearance OR if it’s on day 3 of no hair wash Then I cringe but not usually I mean I know what I look like it’s not surprising or anything lol

@PermaStudent:  Haha I do the same, I do not look at myself in the miror when I am in a public washroom. I don’t know why. Unless I really feel like I need to check my makeup (or teeth) after eating, but I won’t if there is somebody else there.

@NauticalDisaster:  At least I know I’m not alone! I will do a quick teeth-check as well, but that’s about it.

@PermaStudent:  Never make eye contact with yourself!

I know that sounds crazy, but I just can’t do it. If I do feel the need to check my hair, I still avoid eye contact. I know it’s because I’m not a big fan of my face. It’s weird feeling to realize I’m not the only one who does this.

@Cornmuffin09:  I’m glad I’m not the only crazy one! And I know I do it for the exact same reason as you.

The only time I cringe at the way I look is if I eat salty food (pizza/ramen etc) late at night, I’m so swollen in my face & hands the next day I don’t recognize who I am in the mirror!

@MissPine:  I hate that too! I feel awful and think to myself – “is that how I really look?”

 @PermaStudent:  Wow, I’m glad I’m not the only one. I don’t really have body issues, it is all in my face. There’s so many things I wish I could change and I always feel more insecure when I catch a glimpse of myself in a mirror when I’m in public. Photos can be bad too.. :/

I have bad body issues, I hate looking at myself in the mirror! And I always thought that I was the only one who avoids eye contact with themselves!

I do this too! I hate looking in the mirror, but I have had issues acne since I was in my early teens and still have it now! I even go as far as to avoid pictures like the plague.

man i JUST experienced this.

i actually straightened my hair today and picked out an outfit that i thought made me look my best cuz i’m meeting girlfriends after work. i just went to the bathroom and was like AHHHHH!!! when i saw myself. haha. not looking nearly as cute as i imagined.

my fiance always laughs at me cuz i shudder when i catch a glimpse in the mirror. he thinks it’s hysterical. i’m mostly joking.
