In some ways though, looks (for females) is indeed "how you win in life". It's what ones "winning" that's disturbing. Even among older people (way older people) females are judged on their physical appearance. I have a 50 something single acqaintance (friend of a friend), she's 5' 2", light blonde, petite, slender, cute. Men are enthralled by her. She's a nice person and all, but she's clingy, needy, self absorbed, not very intellectual etc. Most of her interests revolve around going shopping and her plastic surgery. However, men just adore her...not for long though. She been married 3 times but generally her relationships only last about 6 months then she onto the next guy. A disposable lifestyle...very Brave New World.
The way I see it, if you are going to have a relationship with someone purely because of their looks or a majority of it, is stupidity. Those looks wont last forever nor will it make someone see you on a deeper, more intimate level. This woman might be able to attract a lot of guys but in the end, if her looks matter over her happiness to her, she will die unhappy. Sorry to say that is the reality and more people should recognise what really matters most.
