Re: Are beautiful people lonely?

In my recent job, I have some into contact with a surprisingly high number of attractive, intelligent people.

And you know what? I didn't even notice the way that they looked until this was pointed out to me. (So I have friends who dribble.. out of both sides of their mouth sogar - "....cooor- he's hot.." "huh? what?!" )
Or maybe my standards are different?

I wouldn't say any of them were lonely... shy people, and those that lack confidence are lonely. Sometimes.

But loneliness happens when you have no close friends, and don't know how to share your thoughts. And good friends wouldn't judge you on what you look like anyway, would they?

Re: Are beautiful people lonely?

It's actually easy to date very beautiful girls, the reason why they are single is people are frightened to ask them out, however as they are beautiful & know it they can be a little difficult, especially if you don't take any nonesense. Working in Advertising I have met quite a few, I generally avoid blonds with long hair as they are just too much trouble.

I am thinking about this since a while and I would like to get your opinions, experiences about this.

Do you feel comfortable to talk to a very beautiful person? Would you go to this person to talk to in a bar or a coffee? Let's say you see a beautiful woman and you, as a single man, would like to go to talk to her, would you actually do it?

I had a student which was stunning! Absolutely outstandingly beautiful. On top of that she is intelligent, respectful, friendly and down to earth. That girl is still single... I know so many pretty girls, great girls with great personality and no pretention who still single.

Are they cursed to be that pretty? Do you think a beautiful person can be curse when it comes to meet someone?

I think the majority of people are not enough self-confident to go to a pretty person. They would love to but feel they will never have a chance. So since most of the people think like that, it leaves a very small chance to the pretty person to actually meet someone nice who would have enough confidence to go to him/her.

Re: Are beautiful people lonely?

Hmmm...I am not sure about this.

Maybe the oposite, I think a lot of people gravitate towards esthetics, whatever it subjectively means to each. But it gives one more work filtering out people who stick to you for yet another wrong reason.

Re: Are beautiful people lonely?

I wish I had this "problem". Beautiful people can choose to be non-shallow, the non-shallow cannot choose to be beautiful. I lived with a model for a while and then had a few flatmates who could be models. It's kind of disheartening to see that they can behave like complete morons and still have people prepared to do what they want, to help them out and generally make their life easier for them. They get given the world on a platter. There was a brief window before I got sick and put on so much weight where I was someone who turned heads but I didn't really get it because I was considered ugly in school and teased mercilessly for it until I was about 19. Then, as I started to understand how the whole "getting something for just showing up" thing, my thyroid "broke" and I became fat. So it's back to being the clown who helps people and rocks in the kitchen.

This is also why I have done so much online dating - when you can win them over with your mind first, it makes them look at you differently from the start. But when things turn sour, out it comes, the truth about what they really thought of the outside. Beautiful people have the opportunity to underpromise and overperform, us normal folk never get a chance to do so because they are often overlooked.

I think the secret may lie in your ability to think of yourself as being a beautiful person (even if, for whatever reason, you don't think you are). I think you would be surprised at how far this can take you, providing that you truly believe in yourself. Once you do, I am sure you will find that most people you meet will agree with you.

Without doubt totally spot on, this applies to pretty much everything in life as well. I would give you rep but the computer says 'no'

True that. Most of it is about self presentation, anyways, exuding life. Or, self lessness. Substance makes people pretty, me thinks, the ultimate magnet.. Just like with poetry, one can find esthetics in everything.

either that or delusion. works surprisingly well for some people ... someone I know is, as far as I can tell, a certifiable moron, has no sense of humor, average looks and precious little taste. He does make a truckload of money though, and dresses well (or expensively at least), but truly honestly believes that he is god's gift to womankind. He has an opinion on EVERYTHING and is not afraid to express it, often on topics that he cannot even spell, let alone understand. but you know what? he gets the women. most are golddiggers and tramps, but there are decent ones every now and then - often enough to make me wonder...
