For starters, good-lookers who have grown up with the world as their oyster (previous studies have shown that they earn more money and perform better in school, too) are conditioned to believe the trope that they "can have anyone they want" – so even if that isn't strictly true, good-looking people are likely to report lower relationship satisfaction and a 'grass is always greener' mentality.

Director of the study, Christine Ma-Kellams, told Broadly: "Attractiveness gives you more options in terms of relationship alternatives, which might make it harder to protect a relationship from outside threats. In this sense, having too many other choices is likely not beneficial for relationship longevity."
