I'm 20 years old and I live in the wonderfully horrendous state of Pennsylvania. In case you haven't realized, I have a real big thing for pretty boys, so I went ahead and put together a Tumblr dedicated to them!
I'm usually on everyday, but I don't get around to posting all that much because I'm very picky about what I reblog. I'm always up for blog recommendations, so send them my way!
3 Years Later~
Hey everyone. I know that I don’t really talk to any of you and that none of you probably care to read this, but after a long absence I have a few things I really want to say.
I started this blog three years ago. I was 17 at the time and terribly insecure about my body. I was convinced that I had to look a certain way or I would never be good enough for anyone, including myself. This is when my obsession began. I created this blog to post pictures of thin, hairless-chested, smooth-faced boys with nice abs. Everyday I would log on to scroll through more pictures, add them to my reblog queue, and then torment myself for not being more like them. I avoided leaving my house to see friends, family, and people that loved me because I wouldn’t love myself. To me, nothing else mattered but the fact that I physically wasn’t good enough.
Three years later, I am 20 years old and soon to be 21. I’ve had a job, been to college, and have seen all different kinds of people in the world. And interestingly enough, I’ve come to learn that in the real world, I’m more attracted to the types of people that I’ve never even reblogged here.
I guess what I am trying to say is this:
YOU ARE THE SUM OF ALL YOUR PARTS.
It doesn’t matter if you’re tall, short, skinny, fat, thin, muscular, or if you have blond, black, red, brown, grey, no hair, hairy, hairless, bearded, not bearded…
You are who you are. Look away from the internet for a moment. Very few people in the real world look like the people on Tumblr. Why? Photoshop, editing, lighting… the list is endless. People are real. People are flawed. Nobody is perfect, so therefore nobody can ever ask YOU to be perfect.
I have to post this because I know there are so many people on here who are dying to be told that they are attractive. When I was a kid, I remember seeing so many other people my age posting pictures of them wearing almost no clothing at all, just because they wanted to hear that they were beautiful. There are twisted people out there who will take advantage of it. I’m begging you all to stop. You are worth so much more than your reflection.
So please, take it from me, the guy who ran a blog dedicated to pretty boys:
YOU ARE PRETTY.
Please send me submissions!
I’ve decided to make a few changes to the way I handle posting on this blog. From now on, I am only going to post what YOU GUYS send me in. I apologize to everyone that had previously sent in a picture, but going forward I promise to make this my top priority!
So, why not take this time to submit a photo and show Tumblr how pretty you are?
