  • • Ugly people aren't generally superficial.

    • You won't have heaps of people attracted to you, this you won't gain unwanted attention from strangers.

    • Peoole will judge you based on your talents and personality, rather than just your looks.

    • If someone does happen to love you, they will love you for so much more than just your looks, and that love will have the chance to be genuine.

    Looks are not everything despite our society being so obsessed with them. "Unattractive" people can still succeed in life without looks, contrary to popular belief.

  • there aren't many really. the only one I could think of is that people leave you alone. no sexual harassment.
    for girls, it means the guy really likes you for more than looks. that could be a disadvantage for guys, especially successful ones.

  • Let's be honest here
    Ugly people have shitty personalities too
    Some of the worse people I have known have been the ugliest

    The best people I have met in my life have all been attractive.

    I don't know I can't relate to ugly people I guess ( sorry if I sound like a conceited asshole)

      they might be rare but I've seen girls saying they enjoy receiving them haha

  • - No kids
    - No wife
    - No family
    - Nothing to tie you to and use anything against you
    - Has a higher chance of becoming a millionaire/rich since you've got nothing to worry or distract you from
    - You're very independent and do not trust many people
    - You don't have to worry about pleasing anyone
    - You know that when someone actually likes you, it's your wealth that they are after
    - Lastly, you probably don't have to deal with heartache and relationship problems, divorce, and other things tying to anything related to relationships

  • I've gone through ugly periods in my life and handsome af periods of my life. Honestly I've learned a lot from both and have grown to value both. Being ugly I could go through society unnoticed and I knew that if someone likes me they like me for me. It also taught me not to be shallow and to see beauty in many different forms. Now during handsome periods of my life I received a lot more attention but I never knew if they actually liked me for my quirks and not just because I had a pretty shell. The attention made me more confident and made it possible for me to come out of my shell. It gives me the confidence to travel and take on all obstacles in my way.

    They both have pros and cons.

  • Being ugly is just as valuable as being poor when it comes to romance. There is nothing worse than being wealthy and handsome / beautiful if you seek true love. If you are ugly and poor, you know you are loved for just being you. Listen to "Poor, Poor, Pittiful Me" by Linda Ronstadt you see what I mean.

  • In some ways, yeah. Ugly girls are usually not high maintenance and are happy with you. They cherish you. This song is true...

  • May be easier to find true love because only those that really care or matter will show interest and the interest will actually be who you are and not what you look like. Because attractive people have that problem, people only interested in there looks, nothing else.

  • I remember seeing a few episodes of the TV show called "Ugly Betty". In the first one, she didn't get that job. I think there aren't any advantages. But I don't care if girls I'm looking for are ugly or pretty on the outside, but their hearts have to be very beautiful! FYI, Betty wasn't ugly to me. She looked pretty with those glasses she had!

  • If someone is attracted to you, you know that it's for who you are as a person.
    You'll probably be funnier and better with your words, because you have to be and can't rely on your looks for anything.

  • You don't have to make a decision between multiple people and having the hard job of letting them down. When you don't have someone to go to something with like a party or something, people don't make a big deal about it. Also that you are not expected to be really confident, which can help if you are not but also helps if you really are as it may surprise people. There is just a few in my opinion.

  • 1. Ugly people are appreciated for their personality — Beautiful people never know if people like them for who they are or how they look. I know a number of beautiful women (including my wife) and, to be perfectly honest, I couldn’t tell you if they have pleasant personalities or not. Actually, I couldn’t tell you if they have a personalities at all. I get so caught up in their beauty that my brain can’t comprehend what they are saying when the speak (that’s why my wife thinks I don’t listen to her). If you’re ugly, though, and someone agrees to go out with you, chances are it’s because they like you for who you are. Unless, of course, you’re rich. Then you can be sure they like you because of your money.

    2. Ugly people are funnier — Think of all the truly funny people you know. Chances are they are unattractive. That’s because ugly people can’t take themselves too seriously. As my dad used to tell me, “Son, if you can’t laugh at yourself, then you’re obviously not looking in the mirror.”

    3. Ugly is cheap and easy — I don’t mean that ugly people are cheap and easy, but that ugliness is low maintenance. When you’re ugly you don’t have to worry about trivialities such as make-up, face lifts, unibrow plucking, or brushing your teeth. Since nothing you do is really going to matter you can just let yourself go. You can acquire a tidy nest egg saving the cash you won’t be spending on toothpaste and tweezers.

    4. Ugly people are more successful — Beautiful people have everything handed to them. Ugly people, on the other hand, have to work harder to get what they want. Do you think there would be a Microsoft if Bill Gates looked like George Clooney? Would we have the iPad if Steve Jobs was as handsome as Ryan Gosling? Would we have First Thoughts if I had become a male model? Great innovations, inventions, and blog posts are always produced by some ugly geek who couldn’t get a date and had nothing better to do than improve the world. Our economy is fueled on ugly.

    5. Ugly people are the majority — Forget the Democratic and Republican parties. Someday we ugly people will unite and become the biggest voting bloc in the country, we will take over and have all the pretty people be at our beck and call. All we need to do is organize. I figure that we should just meet up and hold our first convention at the state fair since, from the looks of the crowd, we are already congregating there anyway

  • None, you just have to brace yourself for a solitary life. Attractive people might get annoyed by attention from the opposite sex, but they have no idea how worse the alternative is.

    • And the most classic question about your "personality" would be: "what's your job?"

    • @CountVronsky maybe but I'd rather look at the attitude of the girl and if I felt a click, look at if we both feel that click spontaneously.
      Not, that we're both doing efforts to create a click and fooling ourselves by making us believe there is one... it must feel natural.

  • You may be less likely to be excluded from a group due to the collective jealousy of others, no one really has any motivation to gossip about you, and if you aren't making any sort of spectacle of yourself your life should be blissfully uneventful. It's a freedom a beautiful person could not enjoy.

  • 1. You have a nice personality (Sometimes, usually most people are bitter)
    2. If you have a partner, they love you for more than your physical features.
    3. You love other ugly things because you understand their pain.

    Nobody judges me for being a 'bimbo' or anything similar.
    People leave you alone; especially in public.
    Nobody sits next to you on public transport.
    When you look a tiny bit decent, it blows everybody's minds.

  • Become the immediate side Chick if the girl does not want relationship
    Make a possible living in Hollywood from playing a scary creature or killer
    You won't get harassed or cat called when you are walking down the street
    People won't try to rationalize the reason you commit suicide
    Less likely to get stalked

    But then again being ugly is subjective

  • You can really get to know yourself. This is gonna sound really sappy but you just learn every little detail about yourself. I've spent a lot of time alone and that gave me a lot of time to think about myself, my life, the world, and other people around me. I never had huge circles of friends or guys trying to flirt with me, but I sorta learned so much just by being quiet and observing. I learned about myself and my real personality, my fears, my strengths, and my weaknesses. I know what I can do, and can't do. I know who I really am.
