What does the attention feel like for beautiful women? Tell me if I am interpreting this right?
How do beautiful women deal with the attention they get? Is it an ego trip?
I am a guy and am always curious how hot girls handle being seen as a prize in so many ways.
One of my friends from high school who I have recently seen always apologizes to me for not getting back to me soon enough or calling me, etc. I don't mind; I have plenty of friends and I'll see her when I can or not. I don't like flakes, so I always decide not to call her back if she doesn't answer but then eventually she'll always text apologizing.
Guys she knows from college/high school, call, facebook, text her all the time. She doesn't like to give out her number too much. Random guys contact her who she barely knew in school. Girls try to introduce her to her guy friends, etc. And of course tons of guys trying to pick her up at bars.
It annoys me when people assume she his slutty just because she is flirtatious and ultra hot. I don't think she's been with that many guys. Am I completely wrong here though? Because who knows maybe this attention is an ego trip and she does hook up with many guys but in a private way.
Sometimes I think she just likes quiet time with her family or hangs out with close girlfriends and focuses on her career; which makes me think that she actually is worth spending time calling or struggling to set up a time in her "busy schedule" she always talks about. I never compliment her on her looks. I'll tell her that she has other things going for her because the physical is obvious.
Anyway my main quesiton is about whether girls like her love the fact that tons of guys want to have sex with her/think she is beautiful, compliment her all the time; is it a weird ego trip?

For me its neither. While I do appreciate it if someone takes the time to compliment me or admire me, it does get old... When I'm with my daughter, she rolls her eyes and wishes we could get in and out of somewhere without having some guy stop and talk to me all the time. With friends, they either joke they can't take me anywhere, or feel self-conscious that guys don't do the same to them.
Another thing is...people get preconceived notions about a woman based off of her looks..either that she doesn't have a brain, or that she has what she has/where she is because of her looks. Even my close friends insist my looks played a part in where I am in life...knowing full well that I've worked incredibly hard for everything I have. I have to put in 150% over and beyond anyone else to prove myself...still yet, I'm not always taken seriously.
Even romantically...I feel incredibly uncomfortable if a guy compliments me *too* much...it feels like who I am doesn't matter...and being seen in such a superficial way all the time can really get to a person. I've met some guys who go through the same thing too..so its not just women. I've also met people who really get off on it and love the attention, and play up thier looks as much as possible...so everyone is different with how they feel about this.1
