It varies, sometimes yes and sometimes no.
When it comes to relationships it's often better to not be the epitome of physical perfection. Those who aren't mind-blowingly attractive work harder to keep their partner happy and are overall considered a better catch because of it. This can apply to other aspects of life as well, those who aren't able to sail through life on good looks compensate through personality. In a way this means it's better to be slightly less attractive than perfect, and those who are amazingly good-looking will often live with the insecurity that they're only liked for appearance and not for who they really are.
There are rich and successful people who look like the backside of a horse, so I guess beautiful people only really have the advantage if it's a job that relies heavily on image. Besides, what's considered attractive varies depending on people and culture. It's really one of those Your Mileage May Vary things, IMO.
It's true beautiful people go further in life and easier 2.
It's a matter of math, lots of people, few beautiful ones, then they get better treated because you don't see them everyday.
It's like they are special in some way or form because they are rare.
Thank god we geeks, nerds and freaks are better at gaming or this site would have not existed.
Made me laugh at the thread name and the comments.
Is it some what in a way true in the sales department. I remember watching something on TV about it, that people are more prone to buy something from a person who is more attractive an has no real visible problems, to a person who is the opposite.
kate upton blew up after her announcement and appearance in SI as cover model.
look how 'hard' they 'work' in this video.
having an appearance that society deems as 'pretty' is definitely advantageous. being 'tall' on a basketball team is going to be an advantage.
the point is not to hate what god gave others, but to use what YOU have to the best of your ability and to your advantage. it's a blessing. sometimes being 'pretty' has it's disadvantages. trust me, i am the best looking guy on this planet and it is just terrible sometimes (just kidding!)
