Inspired by Freudian Slit’s thread about Randy Cohen’s column, in particular by this post by Voguevixen. http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showpost.php?p=11810919&postcount=51
How do people fall all over themselves to please extremely attractive women? I’ve heard this claim many times, but never seen any evidence. Maybe I don’t know good-enough looking people? I’m fairly average myself and I have some friends who are eights or nines, but maybe you have to be in the top .001% to get these perks? Although I feel like at that point, what is considered attractive becomes very subjective . . . we all know that a reasonably good-looking, well-groomed girl is more attractive than a morbidly obese bald woman with missing teeth and open sores, but picking between Meghan Fox and Natalie Portman will present more mixed results.
Anyways, what are these perks in life that good-looking women get, and how good-looking must you be to to get these perks? Is it like a huge jump when you get into the top 1%, or do the perks more gradually increase as you become attractive? The only thing I’ve ever seen is hot girls being more likely to be hit on in bars, or get into relationship with men who are “catches.”
