So what's it like to be good looking? Do you have a special unspoken knowingness with other pretty people? A sense of security that DNA has been good to you? Is it like being born with a trust fund and having that little bit of extra confidence and security? Do the beautiful lack empathy for the plain? Do they have a different attitude because everyone wants a piece of them? Do they want to have sex with plain people but can never admit to it?
Should they be encouraged to come out about this last issue?
I feel there may be an unspoken need there, perhaps it is the last taboo.
I recommend transgressing that taboo.

Sofia! it cut off the last letters.... wtf?!

You're so funny J. I no longer know what it's like to be good looking, however I've always preferred good-looking to plain. In my experience commingling with the lesser looking has always been a terrible mistake, because the plainer one will never see themselves as your equal, nor will they ever forgive you for it.

don´t forget that beauty comes in all shapes and attitudes, and not necessary being plain makes you feel less or being beautiful makes you feel self confidence. anyway, i don't deny the power of accepted beauty.

OK, so how much talent/wealth/power/status does someone need to make up the looks deficit, IYO?
