Although good looks might lead you far in life, there are some hidden downsides to being drop-dead gorgeous. Nonetheless, the benefits and drawbacks of beauty have long piqued everyone’s mind. Do those with symmetrical features and a beautiful form live in a cloud of admiration, or is it sometimes better to be plain?
At the most basic level, beauty may be thought to have a halo surrounding it. When we see someone with one positive trait, our subconscious assumes that they have been blessed in other areas as well. The list of sufferings confronting the attractive is endless. But here are some of the surprising downsides of being drop-dead gorgeous that everyone bats an eye to:
1. Unwanted attention
Attractive people will receive far more attention than they desire. The first thing they don’t want is all those unwanted glares and stares coming from all directions. When they attract greater attention, tensions occur within their own gender because they are perceived as a competitor.
2. Attract creepy people
Being stunningly attractive might attract a lot of creepy people. These folks will stalk and chase them, which is both repulsive and terrifying. It’s practically impossible to get rid of them because police don’t care until they kill you and wear your skin.
3. Can’t pick your nose
Attractive people can’t really pick their nose in a public setting with all those people staring at their gorgeous faces. But girl, pick your nose and assert some dominance!
4. Wrong assumptions
People mostly assume that attractive people are in a relationship or have lots of friends just because they are attractive. However, they are unaware that anyone, no matter how attractive, can be awkward and have low self-esteem. People, ironically, assume that all they have is due to their beautiful privileges.
5. Disregarding your friends/partner
People who label their interests as quirky and interesting will begin to label their unattractive friends as geeks and dorks. Degrading their partner if they aren’t as attractive as they are. Also, it’s quite revolting to see them disregard your partner and straight-up hit on you in front of them.
6. Unwanted sexual advances
Every guy wants to hook up with them and make unwanted sexual approaches toward them. People will also remark things like “what a waste, you’re designed for sex,” as if it’s a compliment, which is quite infuriating. These people regard the attractive ones as some kind of trophy.
7. Stereotypes of being dumb, mean, etc.
Stereotypes about attractive people can be found everywhere, from movies to real life. Because of attractive traits, most people automatically assume that attractive ones are dumb or just mean. People frequently overlook the fact that attractive people have emotions and insecurities.
You will be harassed by people of all genders. Out of jealousy and resentment, you will be showered with the strangest, meanest, and most absurd nonsense by these people. Those are the people who would love to set your house on fire.
9. Left out alone
Everyone assumes that attractive people are full of big fat egos or attitudes leading to no one approaching you. This always leads to them being left out on every occasion. Unfortunately, no one approaches them, making them unapproachable.
10. Lack of trust
“Is it me or is it my body they want?” the attractive ones will often question in bed. Attractive people simply want to be accepted for who they are, no matter how minor their flaws are. However, their exterior is so captivating that it always threatens to overwhelm everything else.
11. Increased sorrows of aging
Their body is ideal for now that is the reason why getting older terrifies those who are beautiful in particular. When they finally become invisible, finding another wrinkle will cause them to lose confidence. They will have many regrets as they go from being so high to now being unnoticeable.
