This Is The Real Reason Why Good Looking People Are Always Total Bastards

​And it's your fault

Why is it that beautiful people so often have garbage personalities?

Is it the inherent privilege that courses through their perfectly-formed veins? Is it some kind of cosmic balancing act? Or is it just jealousy on our part, driven by confirmation bias and bitterness?

Apparently, it's down to a simple logical equation, and it's completely your fault.

You can theoretically separate your potential dating pool into four divisions: 'Ugly and mean', 'Ugly and nice', 'Good-looking and mean', 'Good-looking and nice'.

Of those four groups, people usually automatically discount two: 'Ugly and mean' (because they wouldn't prove attractive in the first place), and 'Good-looking and nice' (as they tend to get taken off the market more quickly).

This leaves 'Ugly and nice' and 'Good-looking and mean' as the only inhabitants of your catchment pool. And thus, the myth is born.
