This comment was from JP McMahon on the post “Why Does Rejection Suck So Much?“
“…I have a pretty high opinion of myself, as do my many friends of both genders. It’s just that none of those friends are women who have any interest in having a relationship with me, at least not lately.
I think that good looking people assume, wrongly, that people that are not so good looking are going to find someone down in their league. A very attractive person has so many more opportunities in this area, that it is hard for them to imagine someone who doesn’t have any, or at least very few. It is like someone who says “I don’t care about money.” You never hear a really poor person saying that. In these articles about dating the way people look never gets the attention that it deserves, because to some degree, it is an intractable problem. You can redistribute money, but you can’t redistribute looks. People can donate time and money to the less fortunate, but no one is going to donate a roll in the hay to someone that hasn’t had one in years, no matter how bad they feel. It’s not fair, and can’t be made fair no matter how many “love yourself” bromides that people throw out there.”
