Bodies... likes, dislikes, and oddities

I thought we needed a discussion like this and couldn't find one Post away about what you like (or love), dislike (or hate) or just find plain interesting about your body!

You need to be a member of NMG Members to add comments!


  • Oddity: I have insanely strong and flexible toes. I can pick things up off the floor with my toes. I can carry dog bowls made of metal with two toes. It's very strange. I also have double-jointed thumbs, so I can jut my knuckles out.
  • Likes: my hair, my eyes, my nose
    Dislikes: my legs, my acne
    Oddities: my freckles (in a good way), my ears
  • Likes: my hair, my face
    dislikes: my calfs, hands, teeth, nose, chin
    oddities: ears, eyes, my feet
  • likes: my lips, my hips (except when i try to cosplay young boys), my eyes
    dislikes: my eyebrows, my chin, and my lordosis
    Oddities: I can't push my fingers back! For someone whos been playing piano over half their life, my hands aren't that cooperative.
  • Likes: Hair (sometimes), lips, most of body, eyes, shoulders
    Dislikes: Nose, oval shaped head, feet (flat and painful), back (long torso, very curved in back so it hurts when I stand up for a while)
    Oddities: freckle on each cheek that are similar shape and size and in a similar loction
  • I absolutely love my hair, even though it feels like an afro at the end of a day (can anyone relate?) I really dislike how my body is overweight, even though I eat healthy and exercise often. I want all of it to disappear, but I can do nothing about it. The odd thing about me is that I have two freckles on my shoulder that look like they are on a line, exept only the endpoints are there, and the line itself is gone.
  • I like my eyes and my hair
    I dislike my eyebrows because they are brown but my hair is blond and therefore they stand out on my face too much and look bigger than they are and I think it makes me look ugly
  • I have really pretty eyes.
    My hair either looks fantastic and kickbutt or completely terrible.
  • Likes: well, I like my ears?
    Dislikes: I think I’m way to thin, and my hair looks like straw.
    Oddities: I can cross my toes.
  • Um, hm...
    Likes: My ears are kind of pointed? And I think that's sorta cute?
    Dislikes: My face I guess is the biggest issue I have.
    Oddities: My left eyebrow sort of goes up, unlike my right one. I like to think it's because I'm part Vulcan haha. (That's why I like the ear thing too lol.)

How to Talk to Your Crush

I have a crush on somebody, and I really like them. I want to tell them that I have a crush on them, but I’m worried they won’t like me back and I won’t even be able to be friends with them. What should I do? -Anonymous Your not alone anon, that’s a fear everyone has when they have crush- and it makes sense!

Sleeping Over at a Friend's House

When I get invited to sleepover parties, I always end up wanting to go home before bed. Now that I am a rising 8th grader, I am starting to worry that my friends may find it babyish that I can't spend the night. Any advice? -Anonymous      I’ve had experience with this same problem before! When I used to often have sleepovers with my friends, I’d nearly always call my mom to pick me up when it came time to go to sleep. Eventually, I did start to worry that my friends would look down on me…

Preparing For Your Period

“I feel very unprepared about getting my first period. I don’t know exactly what happens and I am really worried about getting it at school. I wouldn’t want to talk to anyone about it and I don’t feel comfortable talking to my mom about it ahead of time either. Would I be able to just use a wad of toilet paper instead of a pad for a day until I get home and can ask my mom for one? Where would I keep pads after I did get my period if I had it at school? I just feel uninformed and unprepared and…
