Just to retriate, I wasn't taking any sides in my first post, just give a view as an observer. Ofcourse, If I could take a pill so that I like all the girls in the world with same intensity, Life wouldn't be a problem wish everyone in this world could.
Just to elaborate further, leaving the "rich are not happy" argument in dump, cuz we can't really be sure about it lets go to beauty argument as sex is at most basic level of animal behaviour, its more "valuable" than money if I can say it. After all in the end we all gather resources to have kids and take care of kids.
according to Aries1982 "
Assuming you are saying that beatiful people are not happy because of all the above negativity they get and so becuz they are not happy, in essence they are not luckier than others and hence suffer the same. I disagree with your argument. Here's why:
Yes, they get all that negativity but you forgetting EGO.
All the people that have been to unis or even high school, will know that once a person (girl or boy) knows she's in demand, she/he DOES ALWAYS get a major ego boost. Yes jealousy is an issue, there even fights (especially boys) over that person, and that person might say she is frustrated and stuff, she still has the ego boost and will act as player in any given opportunity.
And this EGO Boost dosen't happen often in less attractive ones who don't have a single boyfriend or girlfriend infact many of them are just desperate to even have one and believe me, just visit a uni or something and you will see the difference. I can't really give you a hard evidence for it.
According to me: EGO BOOST = very profound happiness, ill go even further and ill say for a moment, its like eternal happiness.
So according to me, "beautiful" people are much more happy than others cuz they have ego boosts repeatedly. Remember your high school or uni, when somebody said "this girl likes you" or "this boy likes you", how you felt assuming your preception of that girl/boy was "beautiful". Well, the players have that feeling all the time.
Just for note: Its a bit hard to explain these things clearly in a normal language as they are more of thoughts in your mind and its much easier discussing these things that actually writing it down.
