Default Why do some good looking people struggle to get dates?

i don't understand this at all. i'm talking about people who are involuntarily single. I have both male & female friends who are good looking but are always single and complaining about how noone is interested in them.

Even on CD it's the same. I've only been here a few months but i'm amazed at the number of people who are actually good looking in their profile pictures but can't seem to get dates to save their lives. What's the problem? Why is it so hard for you? I've heard older people say they can't understand why it's so hard for people now days to get dates now. Something's wrong. I've always thought if you're good looking then its easy & there's no reason why you should still be single.


someone explain

Not bashing but even good looking people can be no personality, narcissistic or crazy and as we get older we are able to recognize bad traits in people. There are also those beautiful people who others are afraid or intimidated to approach.

Some (not all) of the most beautiful women I've ever been with have zero bedroom skills or personality. They've relied too much on their looks and never developed other good traits.

They have a crappy personality?

Their entitled, judgmental attitudes are completely obvious to strangers?

They whine about being Indian/short/uneducated /jobless and have a huge chip on their shoulders?

They believe getting laid is their reward for being "nice" (e.g. not overtly abusive or mean) to others?

They are dumb and dull as a box of hair?

What if they're none of those things you mentioned? OP, environmental factors can certainly play a roll.

People have already said it, but personality is either complete crap or equivalent to a Brillo pad.


They have standards (whether justifiable or not) that are through the roof.

Sure. There is some sort of toxic "don't date me" gas hovering around attractive people who can't get laid. Someone call the EPA.

Truly good looking people (particularly good looking women) do not struggle to get dates.

They may however, suck at getting to the relationship point and/or maintaining one.

Wow, lots of members put emphasis on looks in this forum. I'm sorry that some of my posts started out that way.

Ugh....why do some good looking people struggle to get dates? Easy. They have no personality, no self esteem, or they think they're too good. Looks isn't everything. I'm probably one of the few who don't find Brad Pitt attractive. Sure, he's handsome, but once I've seen his interviews, he does not have much of a personality. I would prefer a man with a great personality and ok looks.
