Id rather be handsome and ugly. Here's why: Ive learned that most women really care about what is on the inside rather than what is on the outside. I am absolutely beautiful on the inside, so when you combine that with my major $$$$$, and the fact that I am dedicated to living a healthy life (body is going to look good), then I win.

I mean to say I'd rather be ugly and rich.

I've pondered this question before. I've been complimented on my looks for as long as I can remember, but my family was always broke. At the time (16/17), I was academically underachieving and felt like I was going nowhere in life, so my apparent good looks were always my saving grace - the one thing that was actually appealing about me (my personality was pretty poor as well). Then, I felt that no matter how bad it got, I'd always have my looks. Couldn't be any worse than being poor, dumb and ugly.

10 years later - I've got a pretty good job and have some money left over when everything is accounted for. But I still think I'd rather be broke and good looking, than rich and ugly. As sad and superficial as it might sound, I still consider my appearance to be the best thing about me. When I'm older I might alter my viewpoint. Something terrible happening that would cause my face to be permanently disfigured or scarred in any way (even something as minor as acne) has always been one of my biggest fears.

Handsome and Broke.

All I'd have to do is find a modeling agency and then within a few years I'm a millionaire.

Also money isn't everything, so I'd be happy with just getting a normal job or something.

Being ugly and rich will make one feels always insecure. Since all the gold and wealth in the world won't cure ugly. It can only disguise it.

Being beautify, you can easily make money from it since most good looking people are have more confident and less insecurities.

I rather be inherently good looking and make my own riches than be ugly and have a ton of money that you can't do anything to feel better about yourself.
