I'm really starting to learn that being attractive is a huge advantage in a lot of situations. This is all coming from a girl who used to never try to look pretty, always wore jeans, sneakers, and t-shirts with my hair in a bun or a sloppy ponytail, never wore make-up or put in extra effort to look physically appealing. A girl like that who transformed into a potential model. I notice a huge difference in even the simplest of gestures people give when they think you're attractive. It's like half or at least a fourth of your work is done because they're already open to you, friendly, and very receptive to your presence. I think it's because we live in a very superficial society. The realization that some people will treat others like they are worthless for not being attractive, yet practically naturally treat attractive people like gold disgusts me. That's actually one of the things I look for in a guy when I'm deciding whether he's worth my time; how does he treat people who can do nothing for him or people he's not even attracted to.
Anyway, I've even observed it with other girls. A pretty girl can be quiet and boring, but becuase she's pretty, guys will put up with that and constantly make an effort to talk to her. Yet if an overweight girl with an average or ugly face is boring and quiet, the guy will pretty much treat her like she's not there and may even get an attitude if she makes a constant effort to talk to him. A beautiful girl can be a straight up rude a*ss b*tch and a lot of guys will excuse that because they think she's hot. Whereas if a not so pretty girl is a bluntly rude b*tch, guys will tend to talk trash about her and belittle her.
What is up with this?
I think it's disgusting how incredibly superficial our society has become! What are your opinions and personal experiences with this topic?

Oh very true. I can't even describe how many times I've gotten a student discount at movie theaters without a student ID, just because of a slight smirk and gleaming stare. While my friends never get them LOL.1
