It might seem like being incredibly attractive takes your life to a whole new level. Everything seems to be handed to these people on a silver platter: discounts, free stuff, even jobs.

It’s also easier to find the boyfriend or girlfriend of your dreams when you’re easy on the eyes. Believe it or not, beautiful people fight, even if they may give off the opposite impression.

It’s much easier to talk to a “girl next door” than a stunning supermodel who seems just out of your league. In the end, guys are eager to talk to beautiful women, and girls prefer men of average appearance.

Male Reddit users explain this by saying that they avoid talking to pretty girls to protect themselves from rejection and damage to their self-esteem. They assume someone prettier will turn up, so it’s not even worth trying.

“They’re all players,” “They attract girls/boys like sugar to an ant” or “I can’t stand being jealous all the time”. These are just a few things that can go through people’s minds when they consider dating an attractive person.

Some may worry that their handsome boyfriend will remain faithful. Less attractive guys, however, complement their appearance with kindness and make women feel more appreciated.

Everyone thinks they’re already taken.

For most people, it’s hard to believe that an attractive person can be single. Guys and girls don’t even think about approaching the potential boyfriend or girlfriend of their dreams.

If the admirer finds out that the other half of their dreams is single, they still fight because they are now intimidated by their beauty. What a vicious circle!

Hot girls are worried that their so-called boyfriends might use them to show off in front of their friends. After all, beautiful people are often judged by their appearance and can forget about their personalities.

One Reddit user said: “Whenever I think a guy is ‘nice,’ he’s usually mean to everyone else and just wants to have a fling with me. Then they get mean to me for not wanting it.”

This is especially true if they are shy and attractive at the same time. One Reddit user shared a story: “I was out helping a friend at an event and he introduced me to several people who work at the fair.

I spoke to them nicely and then sat down in a place where I wouldn’t disturb anyone as they were busy selling their handicrafts to people. Sometime later, my friend told me that everyone thought I was arrogant because I sat far away from everyone.

What are some other reasons attractive people stay single? Would you date a beautiful person?
