Extremely Beautiful People Talk About What It's Like To Be Really Attractive

It's not easy being gorgeous; in fact, extremely beautiful people sometimes suffer more than average-looking men and women. These real stories beautiful people have shared on Reddit are pretty hard to believe, especially for us uggos. They might not necessarily elicit your sympathy, but they will enlighten you about how the other half lives.

Sometimes, these people may seem a little cocksure. How can you blame them, though? They've had to live with their attention-grabbing appearances forever. Their tales are nothing if not eye-opening. 

  • People Don't Listen To Her Opinions

    From Redditor /u/idontneedaman

    I feel all the time that people don't give a sh*t about my opinion. [Guys] just agree with me, try to make awkward jokes and then make comments about my appearance, my hair, my clothes and discuss those things. I really don't mind so much, because I try to always look attractive, but in the end nobody really listens to anything I am saying. They just agree and flirt, or dismiss without responding and flirt, even when I'm not trying to look good. It's not the worst problem in the world, but that's my response to the question.

  • People Readily Believe His Lies

    From Redditor /u/minutestomidnight:

    Extraordinarily attractive male checking in... Teachers eat up everything you say. As well as interviewers I sometimes feel like a psychopath, because some people are so easy to bullsh*t. If you just sound articulate and project your voice, the attractiveness gives you a special factor that just intoxicates whomever is testing you. They just believe you, and can't think rationally or critically.

  • It's Hard To Have A Social Life

    From Redditor /u/fortifier22

    I'm definitely not super-model worthy, but I still get a lot of attention from the opposite sex. I frequently get compliments from ladies of all ages...

    The best part about being attractive is that it is ridiculously easy to make a good first impression with people of the opposite sex. Its called the "Halo" effect... It's when people who see you for the first time and find you attractive automatically assume you're a good person.

    However, if you want to have a social life, being attractive sucks. Everyone has negative assumptions of you the moment you try to befriend them; this applies to both men and women. Women assume you're a player and men don't even want to breathe the same air as you.

  • He Feels Like Everyone Is Laughing At Him

    From Redditor /u/ElLetdown

    Eventually getting checked out frequently starts to feel like everyone is looking at something funny on you, but you're the only one that doesn't know what it is.

    Relationships in my opinion are actually harder to find. Girls that I ask out tend to assume I'm stringing them along, or that I'm the type who's always having a fling. Girls who attempt to ask me out usually do so by sending their friends to me, who point in their general direction and say "She likes you, bro." Then I look up at a table full of girls in hysterical laughter while one looks embarrassed. It's f*cking horrifying. Most of the time, talking to someone feels like a few lines of mandatory banter before she's either told me the most-likely superficial reason that we're talking.

    Guys tend to get really f*cking defensive. I'm always down for roasting with my friends, but there's a very obvious difference in joking with me and saying things that you know I feel insulted about. Double if there's a girl present, and then I'm suddenly being stared down in public because you don't trust your girlfriend.

  • She's Been Sexualized Since Childhood

    From Redditor /u/sleepis4theweakkk

    I wouldn't consider myself so exceedingly attractive, but I get hit on literally everywhere I go, so I guess I'll answer this one...

    Now, for the cons. I've been sexualized pretty much my whole life. I was 7 the first time a boy told me I have a big butt, and I was 9 the first time I was called sexy. And it was by my teacher. I get sexually harassed all the time, and have even had to change my phone number to avoid some creeps. Men significantly older than me check me out and hit on me with no shame, and don't even back off after I tell them I'm not legal. Other girls are intimidated by me and automatically think I'm mean or bitchy. I've lost quite a few female friends over jealousy. And I have never in my life had a single male friend that didn't try to hit on me or get with me or date me. A lot of the time it makes me feel like my guy friends are only friends with me to try and get in my pants. People usually don't take me seriously. I can't even count the number of times people have said to me, "Wait, you're smart too?" And on and on and on.

    Don't get me wrong, it's nice and it has its perks. But a lot of the time it sucks too.

  • She's Treated Differently Now That She's Older

    From Redditor /u/mauxly

    I never considered myself hot or anything, but I was used to men checking me out, falling all over themselves for me.

    Now I'm 41. I still think that I'm somewhat attractive, but men don't stop me on the street anymore or randomly want to buy me drinks... I don't really need to work too hard [to stay in shape], so I catch men checking out my body sometimes, but when they see that I'm over 40, they turn away immediately.

    It's weird, to have that power of sexuality vanish. But I can say that the older you get, the less you look to external sources for your self esteem. Thank god!
