What’s It Like To Be Pretty?
Have you seen how your pretty next door neighbor is being treated? I bet that just like me, you’re also wondering what it feels like to be as pretty. Unfortunately for most of us, we are stuck with being plain looking and we’d never find out what it’s like to be pretty at all.
One of the reasons I got the idea to write about this is because, I have read an article about someone who is complaining about her beauty, and that she couldn’t wait for her wrinkles to set in so she could start to enjoy life as a plain looking woman. Apparently, according to her, her beauty has become a deterrent for her to enjoy life completely.
Some pretty people can be really spoiled and complain about the attention they are getting that we can only imagine. When secretly, they are probably reveling over the very attention they are complaining about. Sure, maybe the attention they are getting in their daily life can sometimes be annoying. But most often than not, they do receive a lot of bonuses that plain looking people can only imagine. And to most of us, we can never know what they are feeling. We will never get the attention that they are getting.
Come to think of it, if the wrong people are giving you the attention, you just might be annoyed. So I can’t really blame pretty folks when they start complaining about the wrong kinds of people giving them the wrong kinds of attention. And who are these wrong kinds of people? The creeps who couldn’t stop staring at them? Those not so good looking people who are always around them hoping to grab their attention for a change? Or the people who would talk dirty to them whenever they try to start a decent conversation? Yeah, I bet it’s all creepy.
Being pretty may not be all that bad because there are nice people out there who would treat them nicely. Do they ever share the perks that they are getting from nice folks? Maybe they got a very cool job position in the company they are working at because of their pretty faces. Just flash a smile and a nice job position comes their way. Would something like that ever happen to a plain looking person? No, I bet the plainer a person looks like, the harder they need to work to get a nice job position, if ever they get it at all. And there are also those nice people out there who give them free drinks just because they love the way they smile. I bet it’s all good. And I bet they love that kind of attention.
It has been found also that beautiful people are more successful in life. They tend to have more money and have attractive spouses. Now, what’s not to like about that? Nothing, I guess.
Average and plain looking people will never get the perks that pretty people have always enjoyed. We can just observe them and see how they live their annoying life and hope we don’t get passed off as one of those creepy people staring at them ‘coz that will be uncool.
