Its common for a lot of us girls to be insecure about our bodies due to the beauty standards set by the society.
Skinny girls wanna be thick, chubby girls wanna have a thigh gap, girls with small boobs want big breasts, and the list goes on. Self love is important; if you love yourself, people will love you as you are, you set the precedent for how people treat you. Personally, I had always been conscious about a crinkle that forms on my nose when I laugh, till I met this guy who absolutely loved it and described it as "cute and different".
At the end of the day, people are not the same and one man's meat is another man's poison and vice versa. Sometimes, we just need someone to tell us that it's actually okay...body positivity is really important and in that light, let's comb through some of the things that girls are insecure about but guys actually like:
1. Big foreheads.
We will make all these jokes about foreheads and even crop our selfies, to remove the forehead. One thing I can tell you for a fact is that the guys don't even care about a big forehead, if they did, Rihanna wouldn't be THE shit. So flaunt that helipad forehead girl.
2. Stretch marks.
If you meet a guy who makes you insecure about your stretch marks, that's just an asshole. Stretch marks are your tiger stripes, they give your body and especially the booty some character. They tell a story about some of the things your body has been through, a lil weight loss here, weight gain there...think of them as art on your body and wear your stripes with pride.
3. A pot belly.
We have all been there, sucking the stomach in when seating down or taking photos or when it's time to cuddle with a man. You'd be surprised to learn that some men actually prefer a bit of a tummy and not abs. Why do you think some women in countries like Congo are doing everything they can to fatten up? That's because that's what the men there want. Of course, I'm not advocating for obesity here cause we all know that that is not healthy however, if you have a tummy, don't be conscious about it. Confidence is the most sexy trait in a woman.

4. Small breasts/ overly big jugs.
Listen, a man will still play with them titties even if they're the size of a ball gum. Matter of fact, some guys like breasts that have a different shape. The average woman has round breasts so when men find titties shaped different or a little droopy some of them actually like that. The same goes with big breasted sisters. Ain't nothing wrong with your big jugs sis. They're soft, bouncy, squishy, and who wouldn't like that?
5. Touching thighs.
It's okay if you do not have a thigh gap. You know what? Thigh gaps are overrated anyway.
6. Tiny bums.
Itty bitty butts gang, this one is for you. Skinny girls with small butts may feel so left out now that everyone is idolizing thickness and big butts. As a skinny woman, you may feel like you're not good enough and even get tempted to wear butt enhancement underwears or go for surgery but some guys actually like tiny asses and tiny girls whom they can lift and toss around during bedminton. After all, they say, more than a handful is a waste...
