Is beauty really a curse on the world?
Do you think it keeps us from seeing who the real monsters are? e.g. A girl might give a guy more chances than he deserves just because he is pretty and turns out to be complete a**hat and dumps her (classic scenario)… “The Carver” in the TV show Nip/Tuck apparently believes that physical beauty is evil and feels compelled to destroy it. He has referred to beauty as a type of prison or cage that people are trapped in and believes it necessary to free such a craftman’s pride in his/her work. Do you think beautiful (physically attractive) people get it better? Are liked more? Given more chances and opportunities in life?
On a slightly unrelated note: I am a firm believer of beauty being in the eye of the beholder, so what’s your definition of physical beauty, ya’ll?
This thread on English Sabla poses the question. There are people who remain in toxic relationships because they remain with a person simply because of looks.
Crosses all age groups, every socio-economic class, if your self-esteem is suffering it’s no wonder you remain with someone thinking well, being with this person means I am a good person or a good catch…just look at him/her!
