the suck-in has to be the worst, yet funny maneuver in the history of flirting and pictures. you know the move, you've probably done the move. it is when someone is trying to look better than they are and suck in their gut to appear thinner. admit it! i know you've done it.
who do people think they are fooling? it isn't fooling me. people have a constipated look on their face when they do the suck-in. i can't think of anything more attractive than a guy approaching me and it looks like they have to take a big dump. you can try to cover up the look but it is always there. no smile will change it. i often wondered if they suck-in people thought about the long term. they charm the other person. the suck-in person can't hold it forever.
my favorite suck-in are the ones immortalized in pictures. men and women are equally guilty in this sin. it is most common in the bathing suit or shirtless pictures. everyone wants to look good in pictures, but you cause the constipated look again. it looks worse on the women though. when they do the suck-in, the top part of their abs go in and then there is the bottom line of the rib cage that shows. now, the woman looks constipated and like she is sucking in her gut.
there is a simple way to avoid this situation. DON"T DO IT! if you are that insecure about your body do something to change it for the long term. otherwise, love your body for what it is.
