good looking or average?

would you rather be good looking? or just an average, ok looking person? Being good looking has its benefits because everybody looks up to you because of your physical feature (you have many friends, admirers, etc..) It also has its downside because if you are good looking, everybody will be out to get you (envy/obsessed people). Being average is being half invisible. A few number of people sees the real you. So what would you choose to be?

I like being average.People got to know you for what's inside.There are some people that are good looking,but have a terrible disposition.I remember in high school,there was a guy named,Mike who was really nice looking and knew it.I met him and he had an ugly disposition and attitude.Most of the girls liked him for his looks.Matter of fact,one of my best friends had a crush on him and I told her she was not really looking at him and she replied,"But he's cute!"About 7 years later,I was single and had 2 young boys.A co-worker and his wife invited us over for dinner and we went to their apartment.And walking accross the lawn to their building I heard a familar voice yell some flurty comment to me and I commented back,"Mike you are just as arrigant now as you were in school." He walked over to us and said,"You know me?" And I said,"Yes,Iam one of the girls smart enough not to just like you for your outer looks.I was not intrested than and Iam not now either."He kind of looked shocked.And I also told him,"You have alot of nerve trying to pick up on me openly in front of my young kids.How do you know if Iam married or not/" And he said,"That doesn't matter,woman still will go out with me,even if they are married.Iam irregistable"See,people have inner beauty,that is more important than the outer beauty.

Thanks!I wonder if any woman ever turned him around and he got married and had kids.There are other people that I know that would have been labled "Most likely not to settle down" that are married with 6 kids!LOL!

Half invisible...well said:-) I feel very comfortable as invisible.To be attractive this means to have more attention, but also more troubles. I prefer to be more simple.

Good one! we have the same perspective. It's good to be half invisible because you're sure that the one who sees you really knows you. And having few people know you from the inside feels so much better than having a bunch of so called 'friends' who only likes you for your external appearance. :)

I am average looking person. I am tall. I am well dressed person. I present myself very well in public. So people look twice at me. My mind is positive and it reflects on my face.

Good looking but simple and humble. I don't like good looking people who loves to flaunt their looks everywhere they go. I like to be discreet to avoid being noticed. I don't like too much attention. I don't want no attention either.

If that's the case, you just want to be an average person. Good looking people draws attention even if they don't like it. Being average is being simple (not ugly or unattractive). I admire your principle of being simple and humble. A few people knows how to be like that. tc.. :)
