UK Daily Mail article about being pretty...have you seen this?

Who Me?Who Me? Posts: 3,181Registered Users
She says life is hard for her and women aren't nice to her because she's too pretty. I think it's because she's a completely delusional self-righteous *****. She says guys sometimes do nice things for her becuase she's pretty...I bet the do nice things for a lot of people, and/or she's acting like a self-righteous ***** and the men know if they just do something nice she won't cause some kind of big scene.

She thinks she's never been asked to be a bridesmaid because she's too pretty. That is HILARIOUS. No one wants her in their wedding because she's a horrible person, not because of her looks.

    I thought this was a joke too. I don't find her pretty either. She's just average looking. I'm sure other women disparage her because of her personality, not her looks (or lack thereof).

    I, personally, don't think she's that pretty either. But she is 41; she might have been prettier at one time...and pretty enough to validate some of these claims.

    Undoubtedly, she's exaggerating some of it but I wouldn't doubt the veracity of all of it.

    I don't think saying this makes her a terrible person. But yes, it is guaranteed to make her even less popular (among womenfolk).

    I think she is very pretty and she does have a beautiful smile. She is "tall, slim, blonde" which is the ideal over which many men fawn.

    Perhaps the English have a wider definition of beauty. She reminds me of Jodie Kidd who I was shocked to learn was a supermodel.

    From my observations, men often do treat pretty women better than "unpretty" ones.

    From Wikipedia regarding Lookism, "According to Nancy Etcoff, a psychologist at Massachusetts General Hospital, "we face a world where lookism is one of the most pervasive but denied prejudices." "

    I doubt if jealousy is the reason women don't want to be around her. If men ignore other women in her favour, shouldn't the blame be on men who don't treat women fairly?

    My UK Facebook friends were posting about this last night so I had to Google her. Imagine my surprise.

    IMO, 100% of the time someone is whining about being so beautiful that other women are jealous and mean, they turn out to be pretty average looking (if not downright weird looking). They usually put a lot of work into keeping themselves up but their actual looks are just...not so fantastic. You can't help but notice when all they can talk about is how everyone else is mean and jealous. Um, maybe people are rude because of your stank attitude?

    I would guess she is very flirty. I have friends who are about the same attractiveness and get huge amounts of male attention for that reason. I avoid being around men with them because they're the types to throw a tantrum if someone else gets attention. I figure their insecurity is not my problem and manage circumstances since I like them otherwise but they don't have many female friends.

    That's what I would guess. Also being tall, slim and blonde(and not hideous) automatically gets most people's attention. I know a few very beautiful women that get this kind of attention all the time (and that have to 'dress down' on occassions). Most of them are insecure, don't have many female friends because they get jealous or are just used to male attention all the time.

    It sounds like an article from The Onion!

    She is FAR from "too pretty." I mean, she's fine. But from the sound of it you would think she's Alessandra Ambrosio or something...

    I have a tall, modelesque blonde friend who gets more attention from men than I have ever met. Men have left their wives for her she is THAT pretty. She also has more female friends then anyone I know because she is fun, outgoing and an awesome friend.

    I doubt it has anything to do with her looks and more to do with her attitude and arrogance.

    Even if she was actually above average I would still call BS on her story.

    since beauty is my second business, i know what "pretty" is - and that ain't it!

    her face is not symmetrical enough to be classed as pretty.

    and why does she say this:

    I’m not smug and I’m no flirt

    only to later follow it up with:

    I have written in the Mail on how I have flirted to get ahead at work, something I’m sure many women do.

    which is it, lady?

    Exactly the kind of 'article' I'd expect from the Daily Mail.

    I actually checked the date to see if this was an April fools.

    She's not particularly attractive IMO, just average looking. I'd hazard a guess that women don't like her because she's probably a tedious, irritating, vain, foolish person to be around. I also imagine she flirts with everyone and gets upset if someone isn't paying her attention.

    But what do I know? Not being tall, blonde or slim ;)
  • murrrcatmurrrcat Posts: 9,596Registered Users
    I would say, even though I call people ugly all day long, only if I know of their personality (unless it's beyonce and rhianna they're just ug cause they're annoying as hell) to me, I think she's pretty because I can see where the pretty is, I wouldn't date her, but I don't find women attractive so.... but lots of guys go crazy over some "average and beastly" looking women. Who knows why? It's a mystery. Of course women are gonna hate, saying she's not pretty, because we're women, that's what we do, hate on other women. Isn't there like some proof that men, look at certain parts of women and women look at the whole picture, or reverse, whatever, so maybe they just see the good stuff, or what they want. Maybe she radiates confidence so that her so called ugly looks are overshadowed, and that's why they like her. Maybe she has game, and her friends don't. I don't know.

    Maybe I'm being a bit sensitive, but I find it insulting that everyone here is straight up saying she's average, and if you're average, that means you're not pretty, which means you're ugly. Cause I mean what's the point of being in-between? People don't throw up when they look at you? Might as well be ugly if ya ain't pretty.

    The fact that she would write this article makes it obvious that shes an average looking person seeking attention.

    I agree with the other post that true beautiful women are so plagued by unwanted attention that theyre often insecure. Not writing articles about where their beauty has gotten them.

    I have a friend like that. She's a magnet.

    The night I met her, she managed to get a Philadelphia sandwich shop to open up way after hours and give her a free sandwich, then got a ride home from a cop on a motorcycle. It's hilarious!

    hahaha sounds about the same! It's like hanging out with pure magic sometimes. This is why I don't buy the "no one likes me because I'm pretty" argument. Most likely no one likes you because of your personality!

    I'm sure some girls are insecure and don't like her because of her looks, in fact I know they do, but that doesn't stop her from living an amazing life full of wonderful people.

    She actually looks a lot like a good friend of mine. Thankfully the personalities are completely different!

    I do recall my friend getting a lot of attention from guys back in school and college, and she still turns heads. In her face, my friend is fairly average looking, but it's the tall, slender, blonde thing — gets 'em every time. It's the cultural ideal or whatever. [I don't see things that way at all, but I realize society does.]

    *steps off of sensitive box*

    I'm not hating and I don't appreciate the "hating because we're women" characterization (which men love to perpetuate).

    I do not think this woman is pretty. Do I think other people find her attractive? Yeah, because she's tall and slim and there's a white standard of beauty that equates white and blond with beautiful. And beauty is in the eye of the beholder, after all. But one, I don't buy into that standard and find those traits to be fairly uninteresting, and two, I just don't think she has features that add up to a pretty face. She's at best an average-looking woman. It happens.
    I'm sure some of the women other posters are describing as magnetic and gorgeous might be average-looking in my eyes just as someone they consider average-looking might be gorgeous in my eyes.

    Putting all that aside, she's not exactly endearing herself to anyone going on about how awful people are to her solely because's she beautiful. Lady, maybe it's just your off-putting personality!

    Also, I think you're off about people being ugly if they're average. I find people mostly get categorized as good-looking or not. Most people wind up on the good-looking side unless they're horribly disfigured or something. We humans are shallow, but not to the point where we really break down people's looks to determine if they're truly beautiful. From a distance, we might do that. But it doesn't work that way with people we actually know because knowing someone affects how we perceive them. You get used to someone's face and you view it differently because you see a person rather than just a stranger, a body, a set of features.

    average means you're average.

    it doesn't mean you're "pretty" which is obviously subjective, and it doesn't mean you're "ugly", which is also subjective.

    that's not hating... thems the facts...

    I think women who are young, white, slim and blond (and often, fake-tanned and dressed/made up to impress) are generally considered "attractive" in this culture regardless of their actual features and attributes. That's the white beauty standard. Add real or fake big breasts for extra impact.

    This woman doesn't meet that standard to me because she doesn't appear "young." She probably did meet it 10 or 20 years ago and from a distance, in certain lighting with certain makeup, still could, but not in that picture. That doesn't mean she isn't (or is) attractive, but she isn't the stereotypical version of attractive to me.

    The text of the article itself is BS, obviously.

    Yeah, I agree - and have always believed - that thin, white and blond generally equals attractive to many people regardless of one's actual facial features.

    Pretty much.

    I also LOL'ed when she said she is looking forward to wrinkles - she already has them!

    I almost wonder if this article was a cheap attempt at race-baiting or something as it just seems too ridiculous. I KNOW there are way prettier stereotypical blonds they could have enlisted.
