While attractiveness certainly comes with its fair share of benefits, it’s important to acknowledge that it also carries a set of drawbacks, as illustrated by the following list.
Any touching without consent is wrong but somehow people think that stroking an attractive person’s arm, constantly leaning in for a hug, or brushing up when walking past them in a bar is ok. Attractive people often feel that they should walk around with a sign saying “Don’t touch me” but many doubt that even that would stop annoying people with wandering hands.
People Only Want to Get Into Bed With You
When you are very good looking many people simply see you as a sexual object and will do anything to get you into bed. Once they have slept with you they may not show much interest in building a relationship with you as they have a physical rather than an emotional attachment. Some people spend so much time trying to hook up with good-looking people that they don’t spend time getting to know the person behind the good looks.
People Think You Are Dumb
So many attractive people say that they are treated as if they are dumb. A good-looking woman or man comes with the stereotype that they are only interested in what they look like and how fit their bodies are, which is untrue. These stereotypes make it difficult for attractive people to find true love. Not only is this an issue in relationships, but is thought to be dumb is a problem for attractive people in the workplace as people assume they are not the best at their job and should only be in fashion and entertainment businesses, such as modeling.
People Assume You Are Confident
Lots of attractive people ooze confidence but that is not true for all good-looking people. Some attractive people are shy and awkward, just as some plain-looking people are confident and assertive. When people have assumptions about your personality it can be very difficult, as many attractive people testify.
People Are Unsympathetic
Attractive people have just as many problems as everyone else but some people don’t believe this to be the case. It is assumed by some naive people that attractive people have no troubles in any aspect of their life as being pretty gives you top trumps in everything. Yes, a hot-looking person may get a lot of dates but that doesn’t mean they get all of the good dates.
People Are Jealous
Good-looking people often get grief from other people who are jealous of their beauty. Attractive women will often overhear other women gossiping about them and trying to put them down in any way they can, sometimes getting physical by pulling their hair or pushing into them. This means that sometimes attractive people will try to make themselves look less appealing by covering up and not wearing make-up.
People Make Assumptions
Being attractive does not mean that you have the world handed to you on a plate so it certainly doesn’t mean you are rich. Attractive people have to struggle through school, work, and relationships just like the rest of us, with some even feeling bullied because of their good looks.
You Receive Over-the-top Compliments
In a bid to be friends with the popular good-looking person, people will bombard them with compliments to get them on their side. It is cringeworthy to see people sucking up to attractive people to make them look good. Attractive people are forever trying to get away from people who hang upon their every word and just want people to be genuinely nice to them.
People Assume You Are Popular
Not all attractive people are popular, some struggle to make friends for various reasons. Whether they are shy, awkward, anti-social, or have a dislikable personality, some good people find themselves alone. Some good-looking people are desperate to make friends because people never ask them out, always assuming that they are so popular that they are likely to have other plans. This is not the case so if you have a good-looking friend, ask them out!
You May Be Forced Into a Situation You Don’t Like
If you are attractive you will understand the fear of being forced into situations you don’t like by other people. At work, your bosses may think that you will make a good salesperson as people will be swayed by your good looks or they may assume that you are confident in leading if you are attractive.
People Stare at You
If you are a good-looking man or woman you best get used to people looking at you all day long. Wherever you go you will have men and women staring at you in the hope that you will notice them or simply admire you and wish they were more like you.
Aging is Difficult
For those who embrace their attractiveness, aging can be a difficult process. As people grow old they will start to develop wrinkles and sagging skin which means that some people may find them less attractive. The transition to middle age may be more difficult for those who have had people looking at them their whole lives.
