Downside of dating a beauty

"I look like Chuck Bass." The scene made me think of a story I recently came across in the Globe and Mail newspaper, which termed the ability for hot women to instil changes in their men as "the babe effect" - the fact that men will "jump through hoops ... The story went on to detail the carryings on of a bunch of high-profile blokes, all of whom were being highly influenced by the "babe" they were dating. And if she was a super hot "babe", would it make any difference? Brad Pitt effectively became a philanthropic, child-adopting, motor-cycle-riding peace-lover for girlfriend Angelina Jolie. If your girlfriend demanded you change your wardrobe, your job, your friends or your haircut, would you acquiesce? Her article for the Daily Mail about how women hate her for her beauty has gone viral. Therapist Marisa Peer, author of self-help guide , says that women have always measured themselves against each other by their looks rather than achievements.Brick, 41, explains that she’s been given free drinks her whole life because she’s hot. Not one girlfriend has ever asked her to be a bridesmaid. “It’s hard when everyone resents you for your looks,” says Brick.(She's supposed to have turned down his marriage proposal twice already ...) But, aside from wishing you were Orlando Bloom right now, apparently there are other - albeit more significant - disadvantages of dating a babe, a trophy girlfriend or a hot chick.We like to see poor lottery winners, not rich ones.

I’ve had some dealing with people who are mentally ill, but not so ill they have to be “put away: — they are very functional and lucid — but they have the look this woman did on TV — of being in her own world.So he was elated when he found himself dating the most beautiful woman he'd ever laid his eyes on. The only catch was that she was from a less well-off family and saw him as her own personal ATM card."I was buying expensive dinners, expensive outfits, shoes, paying her part of the rent and basically doing everything I could for her.She'd tell me I needed to change the way I dress, and talk, and told me I should act differently around her friends." At first, he was happy to make the changes. All for the sake of being able to date such a "magnificent specimen".But as her spell wore thin, so did his patience, and his tolerance.

Which, say many psychologists, is exactly the reason that so many men are happy to morph into slightly different creatures to impress their partners: out of fear they'll lose her if they don't.
