Yea people are like that. We over think insults and forget compliments. I'm so glad you learned to live your curls can u post some pics of themWhen I was younger, I was told by some adults that I had gorgeous hair but for whatever reason the ones that teased me for it won out. Oh well, better late than never. I was asked by one person a couple weeks ago if my hair was permed, in an odd sort of way I'm kind of flattered.Wavy/curly hair on guys is SO hot!! Some of my guy friends have wavy or curly hair that I'm constantly trying to get them to grow it out....when they do and right before they cut it, it looks so good!!
