The Pretty Girl Complex
You know a girl like Sara.
A pretty face without much substance.
She's not very smart. She's not very witty. She's not very original.
Sara lacks that special core, that uniqueness. Her personality is based solely on how people react to her outer beauty.
Growing up, she didn't take time to nourish her soul. She didn't read books. She didn't treat people nicely. Everyone kept saying she was beautiful, so she knew that was her power. That's what made her special. That's what made her better than everyone else.
Boldly placing yourself on top of a superficial pedestal is easy when you think everyone else is beneath you. Beauty trumps brains. It trumps money. It trumps creativity.
Sara craves people worshipping her. She only feels human when men are fawning over her. She only feels worthwhile when other women are jealous.
While most people have hobbies, Sara spends a lot of time staring in the mirror, putting on makeup or just admiring herself.
Guys are obsessed with her. It makes their day when she flirts with them. They tell their girlfriend "she's not my type" but secretly wish Sara was in her place. They would ditch their girl in a second if Sara batted her curled Maybelline eyelashes in distress. It would make their dick feel bigger to have such a stunning girl on their arm. A girl who looks like she stepped out of a movie.
While Sara is flaunting her youthful, trendy beauty, other girls her age feel invisible.
They don't realize they're attractive too, but in a more fascinating way. They're most beautiful when you take the time to study every crevice of their face. Those oddities in their features, the kind that might seem imperfect next to Sara, are what make them perfect. These girls have bumps on their noses. Freckles on their cheeks. Gaps between their teeth. Dark, creamy skin. Their beauty is so poetic, it's mesmerizing.
But immature guys don't pay attention to real beauty. They're programmed to want the obvious, whether its Heidi Klum or Megan Fox.
And while most girls hate Sara, they don't realize how much it would suck to be her.
Guys don't chase after Sara because she's interesting. They chase after her because she won the gene pool lottery. They don't want to learn everything about her. They just want to fuck her.
Eventually, Sara will no longer be able to triumph over the other girls.
Even her beauty won't hold a candle to reality.
Men might be attracted to shiny objects, but they get bored with them quickly. Real men want a partner who can stimulate them physically, mentally, and emotionally. They want someone with fiery passion. They want someone who can make intelligent conversation. They want someone who can make them laugh. They want someone who shares the same interests. They want someone who isn't bloated with arrogance. They want a lover who is their other half.
A best friend and a soul mate, wrapped up in one.
It might take a while for them to figure it out, but they eventually do.
And that's why it sucks to be Sara.
She never wins in the end.
