Is it truth or myth that beautiful women often stay home alone waiting for the rest of us to get up the nerve to call them?
Obviously we see women who are, or should be models, on the arm of some equally dashing and handsome man. So we might assume beautiful people only attract each other.
The media and Hollywood is part of the problem here. Many movies and TV shows promote beauty, fame and success all in the same package. But perception isn’t always reality for beautiful women in the real dating game.
In a Dating Tips 24/7 article entitled Beautiful and Alone:
“… some of them are assumed to be very self-centered and, therefore, will only date certain types of men. They don’t want to be seen with the ordinary guys. In other words, if a man doesn’t have lots of money and a hot car, they shouldn’t even approach women like this.”
“I just wanted to let the guys who make these movies and shows know: this doesn’t often happen in real life. Actually, I’m not sure it ever does.”
Many of the top women in their field, who have it all: good looks, money, career and self-confidence, find they have real trouble attracting the right man, even when they are supposedly surrounded by them.
From a recent You Magazine article, Beautiful, Successful and alone:
“…this year, a surprising number of actresses will be taking the red carpet ride without a partner on their arm – Nicole Kidman, Renee Zellwegger, Sandra Bullock and Minnie Driver to name a few.
“Ironically, it may be that for some women, it is their hard-won achievements that are preventing them finding love. “Very successful women exude confidence,” says psychologist Ron Bracey, “particularly if they are also good-looking. Men can see women like this as simply too good for them.
“So the next time you find yourself standing next to a gorgeous women and you assume by virtue of her beauty and poise she probably has it all and wouldn’t be approachable, think again.And although they might tumble in and out of attachments, Kylie Minogue, Geri Halliwell and Miranda Richardson all remain unmarried. These women are not, they admit, entirely happy about their solo status.”
