Pity Pretty People

09 Jan

You know what, I feel bad for pretty people.


Say what you want, but it’s very hard to be pretty, or handsome, or gorgeous or insert adjective here.


I’m sure there are many of you out there pulling facing, shouting What?!?, and dismissing me as certifiably insane.


“It’s so easy to be pretty, you always look good”

“People like pretty people, ergo they’ll like you faster.”

“Pretty people are statistically paid better, and are more successful.”

And “Hey, it’s nice to be nice.”


But look…most of the advantages of being pretty are dependent on someone else and their actions towards you because of your looks, which you were luckily born with.


And that’s just it. People have expectations of pretty people.


People expect pretty people to be better conversationalist, better dressers, have more friends, know what to say, know how to act, what to do…because they’re pretty. And when they don’t regular folks look down upon them…like “what’s wrong with you, why can’t you, you’re pretty!”


There is a certain awe and disdain regular have towards pretty people.


And well, pretty people are regular people, they just happen to be, well, pretty.


They have bad hair days, foot in mouth disease, trip over their shoes, and can be incredibly shy (except when they are shy they are cast off as snobs.)


I think it’s time for everyone, out of the pure goodness of their heart, to adopt a pretty person.


Who wants me?

    I completely disagree. Based on some close pretty friends, I think they get away with a lot more. Their conversation does not have to be sparkling nor do they have to be particularly friendly BECAUSE they are pretty

    They get away with more bec ppl leave them more leeway-psychologically, you’re going to give them a lot more room, bc you don’t expect them to mess up. Stop complaining, hon, and say “T’anks Gd”

    (This comment wouldn’t be half as snarky if you hadn’t caught me at a time when I was feeling really lumpy…could it be connected to that half box of mini cookies I snarfed down half an hour ago?)

    Your modesty is an inspiration.
    But I shan’t pity or adopt Angelina Jolie just yet, as she’s too busy adopting the world.

    And if you’re pretty and blond, you don’t even to say intelligent stuff 😉

    I agree with Frum Librarian. Although I can see what your saying.

    Is the small font there to make up for you saying your pretty?
