Over time, the matter of beauty and good looks have majorly been women’s palaver. But a recent discovery shows that men have got their own problems with this gift of nature. When I talk about being good-looking here, I mean real good looks. I’ll rather call it being beautiful.
Although good looks are generally treasured by everyone, it may not have crossed your mind that it as well attracts things that are so unpleasant that one may prefer not to have it. A lot of men are of the opinion that being handsome comes with more disadvantages than advantages. Let’s have a look at some of the costly prices men pay just for being “beautiful”.
1. Women Don’t Take Them Serious – Always perceived as a player/flirt
Women would always assume you’re a player for no tangible reason. Just smile at a lady and she feels you are flirting. Just give another a helping hand and she assumes you are asking for sex. OK, love a lady genuinely, and she feels you just want to use and dump her! It can turn out to be really discomforting and disheartening in the sense that your well-meaning actions will always be negatively interpreted just in the name of good looks.
2. It Gives the Impression of Being a Weakling – Not being man enough
Being a pretty guy is usually paralleled with being unman-like and weak especially when you do not have that conspicuous muscular physique. You may seem to appear girlish and this sometimes create a gap in your man-to-man relationships. Some ladies will see you as a puppet or rather a baby to play with and not a real man to depend or lean on.
3. They Hardly Find True and Genuine Lovers
The danger here is that you attract more women who flock around you with reckless abandon, and having no genuine love for you. And with the quantity come a drop in quality. It becomes much more difficult when you want to choose a life partner. It’ll take extraordinary grace and carefulness to avoid making the wrong choice because you’ll have a lot of superficial women with no substance pretending to the core to be angels just to win you over for life. Ironically, the ones with substance are not fazed or impressed by your looks.
4. They Are The Number One Target of Sugar Mummies
Older women are fond of picking on handsome guys. They always find a way to make you uncomfortable in any gathering. They are annoyed that you failed to notice them and that they may not be able to have you. And so, they are left with no option than to draw attention to themselves and also show their grievances by poking at you. Some guys have confessed that the experience could be quite very unpleasant.
However, the daring ones, especially the rich lots will go down the way to see they got you into their pocket and unless you fight real hard, you can hardly escape their net.
5. They Inspire Jealousy on Every Hand
A very handsome man is always bombarded by jealousy all around. Your fellow men always feel you are intimidating them with your good looks. It gets worse if you ever give attention to any girl they failed to win over, and actually gets worst if you end up dating the girl. They’ll just term it that you snatched their girl with your looks. If care is not taken, it may turn out to become a bloody experience, depending on the people involved.
On the other hand, your wife or girl friend will forever be jealous. She’ll hardly trust you even when you prove to be a faithful. Just a smile you give to any other lady becomes as great offence as when you took her to bed.
