A little off topic. My niece (early 20s) has been looking at guys' profiles on MeetMe, and these guys show up on her feed. About 80% of them are shirtless. I'm just dying to comment with "unless you're looking for a one night stand, stop looking at the half-clothed boys." I'm seeing her this weekend and I doubt I'll be able to keep my mouth shut, if the topic comes up. At least she'll hear the humor in my voice face to face. Personally, I think an unemployed single mom of a 6 mo old has other priorities , but it's not my life.

Anyone who does that is looking for positive comments on their bodies. Fine if you've been working toward a goal, but it's an eye-roller when you see it all of the time and reeks of desperation.

What's really funny is watching 40 + women, some married ooohing and aweing over any man that posts a shirtless pic, it always leaves me saying wow, the women are just as bad as the guys in most cases. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.)

I always feel sorry for women like this. I've yet to know a single one that didn't have awful personal relationships, too. They not just attract men who treat them like garbage, they seem to think they deserve it

I have dull, chunky friends, I guess.

Well, if someone is in a bikini and is just hanging out with friends at the beach or the pool I usually think "Oh how nice...they are having a great time!" However, if the lady is in a bikini and in a crazy pose that usually is reserved for covers of certain magazines I crack up and think "There is so and so looking for attention again."

Do you think they are "addicted" to attention from men? And not just women, I see a lot of guys that think they are super "buff" posting lots of pics in no shirt, posing, I always kind of throw up in my mouth a little when I see that but (Not that there's anything wrong with that. )

I know one "lady" who has to be in her 40s who is supposedly a "model" and I"m like really? Who actually hires you? She looks like an aging escort (to put it politely) at best and its just down right embarrassing. I'm beginning to think she just has a screw loose. Oh man I think I need to do some Facebook friend deletions.

So how do you feel about it?
I see absolutely nothing wrong with bikinis, so it would not even appear on my radar. So, no, I would not think "tramp."

But then, where I am from, it is a running mecca. So, I am used to seeing women in sports bras and shorts at PTA meetings and the grocery store. So not much different than a bikini.

The first thing that pops into my head is :

your self esteem must be pretty low and you need attention

I am sixteen and the number of Facebook friends who post pictures of them posing and making suggestive faces really irritates me. I don't mind photos of people in bikinis but I do mind it when they are posing or showing off.

Men... Seem to be able to pose topless without people noticing. They aren't seen as attention seeking so much in my experience. Not that I'm complaining.

I'd have plenty to say if my daughter was posting pics like that.

I have a friend or two that seek attention. I do think it is low self-esteem. I think they seem pretty miserable 90% of the time. It is really sad to watch.
