Re: Are beautiful people lonely?

I know in the past I've been extremely shy around extremely beautiful women (My wife is one and I'm totally comfortable around her ). There is something intimidating about them, just as there would be for an extremely athletic, or intelligent, or charismatic woman (or any other commendable factor, for that matter). Someone who excels at something, either through an abundance of natural ability or through extensive effort, always serves to encourage others to measure themselves against this standard. In the case of beautiful women, I would say that insecurity stems from the other person feeling 'not attractive enough' to be around the woman. Some men assume a woman that attractive must be seeing someone, and that their supposed someone is equally as gifted, i.e. more gifted than themselves. Or, these men assume that the woman will wait until someone 'equally gifted' comes along, and due to their insecurity, that's not these men.

Yeah, but he was in. A bit (allegedly). What more could a guy want in the pre-Pill 50s?

No, they are not lonely, in fact they are having a ball.

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.
Nil - truly WTF? Life is just sooo hard for some people...

We are what we are, and the only thing that will change our looks is money, plastic surgery, botox and beer - or a combination of them.

Surely you've got something better to do in B'land...

It all depends if the rest of you is in proportion! However, I still maintain that the clue lies in the hands and fingers

What does talking of oversized limbs have to do with beauty?

And why can't I have a conversation about what ever I am up to?

Back on topic: Beautiful women generally don't have many girlfriends. And not all beautiful people know they are.

Personally I find that attractive women usually flock together. We had a little theory back in highschool: When there was a less attractive girl hanging out with the 'Hot girls' she was definitely very fun, interesting and great times to hangout with.
Conversely, if there was a very attractive girl in a group with all less attractive girls, she usually be pyscotic or have some other deal breaker issues.
We called it the "Oddity theory". hehehe
Do note, it was highschool and we were at a very cliquey school....it was fun to point out trends in adolencent social life....look back and laugh at it now

Ok, there is one guy I know who is handsome and not shallow (he confirms the "meaningful life event theory"), his girlfriend is definitely in a different "attractiveness league" to him. Guess what - everyone keeps telling him he could do better and strangers literally raise their eyebrows when he introduces his girlfriend as such to them. Ok, she's also a bit difficult so I guess that makes things worse but shouldn't he be the only judge of whether she is "enough" for him?
wow... just wow. I seriously hope that in both those cases, the receiver of the unsolicited opinion told the giver of said opinion where to shove it .. I know I would.
