Skip to comments.'There are downsides to looking this pretty': Why women hate me for being beautiful
Posted on 04/03/2012 11:01:39 AM PDT by servo1969
On a recent flight to New York, I was delighted when a stewardess came over and gave me a bottle of champagne.
This is from the captain he wants to welcome you on board and hopes you have a great flight today, she explained.
Youre probably thinking what a lovely surprise. But while it was lovely, it wasnt a surprise. At least, not for me.
Throughout my adult life, Ive regularly had bottles of bubbly or wine sent to my restaurant table by men I dont know. Once, a well-dressed chap bought my train ticket when I was standing behind him in the queue, while there was another occasion when a charming gentleman paid my fare as I stepped out of a cab in Paris..
Another time, as I was walking through Londons Portobello Road market, I was tapped on the shoulder and presented with a beautiful bunch of flowers. Even bar tenders frequently shoo my credit card away when I try to settle my bill..
And whenever Ive asked what Ive done to deserve such treatment, the donors of these gifts have always said the same thing: my pleasing appearance and pretty smile made their day.

If it isn't then what we have here is a genuine case of conceit on full display.
Maybe other women don't like her because she's a vapid horse's a**.
She is attractive, but she thinks much higher of her looks than a reality. I’ll give her a 7, perhaps she could have been a 9 20 years ago.
I don’t see it.
Not a target-rich environment.
You seem to have misplaced the British standard for beauty.
At her age, she has a full set of well kept teeth.
Quite the Catch, you see!
I’m confused. Just where is the hunk of gorgeous she is talking about?!
On a scale of 1 to 10, I would give her a 7 maybe a 7,5 if the light is just right.
She is an ordinary, pleasant looking woman. Period
And as proof of all this we have what? Her word?
She’s missing at least two of the requirements for such attention and treatment. Credibility may be a crucial third ingredient she’s missing.
I see women better looking than her every time I go to the gym.....without wearing beer goggles.
Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza (Venezuela)
She currently stars on Donald Trump's 'Celebrity Apprentice' on Sunday evenings.
Keep in mind that, as a brit, she is surrounded by victims of socialized medicine in Europe, who may not have updated eyeglass prescriptions.
I know what you mean, girlfriend!
If I was standing in ‘queue’ I would rather it be behind this woman than Helen Thomas.
(see... I said something nice)
Trust me, sweetie, you don't have to wait.
I have had the same problem all my life. People keep wanting me to buy things for this woman. I don’t know her!
My male cousin is 18, a true 9.5/10-body and face. I have seen it personally how women treat him. Yes, lot's of free stuff. Women are always giving him stuff for free at restaurants-they will "forget" about his appetizer or drinks etc.
Women ask him out for dates all the time or ask him to dance at a social event. I have seen this personally as well. He works at a Hollister store as a model and was handed something like 30-40 phone numbers the first week he worked there.
BTW he does have a gf.
Very attractive people are treated differently in this country.
‘There are downsides to looking this pretty’:
Vanity, for one.
Oh, poo. There are plenty of very beautiful women in the UK. This one is not one of them. Maybe the women don’t like her because she’s conceited? Yep. Probably thinks every man is attracted to her. I know someone like that, she’s annoying and it isn’t true.
Not a target-rich environment.
That’s not nice!
It’s true, but still not nice!!
this has to be a hoax.
no way this can be true for a pedestrian looking egotist.
She does have a fetching complexion....for a kohlrabi.
Must resist off color comment on the Big Bang...
She’s got Hillary’s legs!
Babe, you are full of it.
You are thin lipped, mealy mouthed and mousy haired.
That Schnoze is something. Ever think of donating to a museum that houses doorknockers?
The forehead? I think we just drop you in the ocean and use it as an aircraft carrier for our planes to land on.
Honey, the facts just do not support your claims and if I had to go court to defense your claim the judge would toss your case with prejudice and warn of litigous litigant.
You make a good point. She may have been very attractive when she was a teenage and thinks she still is.
I once knew a girl who was very attractive but every time I saw her she looked a bit different. She never looked plain but sometimes I would see her and I would say maybe an 8 then the next time, an absolute 10.
I have a picture of her I took while we were on a hike up a mountain and she had no makeup on at all. I believe it is the most stunning picture I have ever seen.
She does have that British look about her mug.
This reminds me of a woman I know who is, at best, a 6 on a 10 scale, yet is convinced that every guy she passes is checking her out.
She has a new story everyday about how some guy was ooogling her.
This woman is equally delusional.
Self-flattery gets you nowhere.
Wow! Miss Universe is smokin’!
For a moment I thought she was a slightly younger Catherine Z-J.
Anyway, “please, don’t hate me because I’m beautiful!” is so tiresome. At least try to earn the hatred, it could actually be pity disguised.
Like when youre drunk, suffering from pink eye, the bartender says “last cal” and turns the lights down?
Would it be that kind of lighting?
Yikes. I’ve scraped better looking things off the bottom of my shoe!
Can we take a peak below the Mendoza Line?
perhaps she is a miss universe contestant ala canada...
What does the woman in post 14 look like before she was Photoshopped?
She ain’t ugly, but she ain’t pretty enough to get by on looks alone, either. My guess is that she dresses as “easy”, rather than being “pretty”, and gets attention from men who aim a little lower because that means that they just might actually have a chance.
I agree whole heartedly.
What gets me is why everyone wants to get rid of her on CA. I say keep her around......just because. ;-)
Yeah, there’s a lot of low cards in that hand...
Who would ever fall in love with Tweedle De and Tweedle Dum?
Two delightful people in their mid-forties?
Well, they found each other in our town. Their happiness and delight in each other is the most precious thing in the world.
This thread is a lot of fun because charm is deceitful, and beauty is passing.
I wish I had a photo of Tanya and Bill. They have brought joy to the whole town (all 3,000 of us.)
