Contrary to popular belief...
We are all led to believe that dating is so much easier for people who are blessed enough to actually be considered physically attractive. There is no denying the value that physical attraction can play in a relationship especially during the earlier stages of it. That’s why by looking at things at surface value, a lot of people would actually be in agreement with the notion that love is just so much easier for attractive people. And for the most part, these people are right. There is just no downplaying the significance and prominence of being physically attractive in a world that is driven by aesthetic pleasures.
However, it would be wrong for us to assume that attractive people don’t go through very distinct difficulties in their pursuits of love. We are all human after all, and we are all going to be flawed. All of us will have our problems and we all deal with our imperfections in our own very specific ways. We must always remember that just because a person has things significantly easier than we do doesn’t mean that they would be immune from difficulties already.
Challenges come to us in all shapes and forms regardless of who we are. It doesn’t matter whether you’re good looking, ugly, smart, ignorant, rich, poor, adventurous, or shy.

2. Potential mates are aware that you are a hot commodity.
Yes, a lot of people want to be with you because of your looks. You generate a lot of romantic interest in general because of your physical attractiveness. However, the trouble with that is a lot of potential mates who you may be interested in will not want to make a move on you. They will know that you have too many people interested in you and they will not want to take part of the competition for your affections.
3. People will tend to judge you just based on your looks.
A lot of people will have trouble going beyond the surface. They will fail to recognize all the other facets of your character and your personality because your looks are hard to get past. Some people are just naturally superficial like that and you’re going to have to deal with it.
4. People will be more likely to use you just for your body.
There are plenty of instances of relationships wherein love doesn’t really play a role. We’ve all heard the stories of ladies being used by men to satisfy their sexual desires.
