As Queen Beyoncé says, “Pretty Hurts” and two recent studies, that very concept might have been confirmed. In a world of romance, stories are filled with pretty people falling in love—though we sometimes prefer the ones with average, plain, and some would even call “ugly” characters. However, these studies, one, which analyzed 130 high profile celebrities, and, in another, looked at 238 individuals, showed that while attractive people found love, it often did not last long!
After all, looks fade, but falling for the person underneath is the more important thing, and if romance novels have taught us anything, it's that without a foundation beyond the physical attraction, an HEA is bound to fail!
So what do you think of these studies?
