Sex Appeal of Plain Women – Walter Kirn on Why Pretty Girls Are Single
They tend to go out on the town in pairs, I've noticed: the conventionally pretty one, all dolled up and shining, and her average-looking friend, who's barely had time to do her hair. The pretty one, I have a hunch, is generally the instigator. With the plainer one by her side, she thinks she'll look even more dazzling than usual. And the plainer one goes along with the idea because she wants to bask in her friend's glow—or maybe because she just doesn't get out much. I don't know.
'Being average-looking has made me happier in life and love'
It seemed so unkind to typecast people because of their appearance, over which they had no say. I felt sorry for plain girls and was secretly grateful to be fortunate not to be born a girl, as I would have hated to be plain Given one life and, with the luck of the draw, plain girls were not given the gift of beauty, which seemed to be a priceless asset. No amount of wishing or daydreaming could alter their fate.
