Are all beautiful women boring?
We all know that girl—the one with the flawless outfit and the perfectly-tousled hair who always looks amazing no matter what sort of circumstances leave the rest of us looking disheveled.
But is she boring? Perhaps, says a recent article.
A recent study in the journal Psychological Science sent scientists on a mission to discover whether or not those who are perceived as physically attractive to the world do indeed have it all -- with attractive personalities to match.

I get the impression Pete North1975 is like 12 and unsupervised by his parents. Don't pay him any attention. This is all the attention I'm giving him.
The more beautifull, the more self centered, and spoiled, and look at me attitude, yes often
boring and a cold fish to boot, cant't be touched gently, can't cuddle, etc because it might mess up and place a hair out of position, oh my. Why seek the celebrity look, acheive it , and then
not be able to enjoy what you have been lucky enough to be given, and remember yr good looks will not last forever, so you better have some back up charm and personality waiting in the wings. Beauty uis only skin deep and often very shallow.
I actually have better luck with pretty women than i do with the average ones. The latter make it a point to let me know there are boundries, but pretty women - at least the few that I have met - seem to be attuned to the feelings of others, and therefore, want to appear socially pleasant too.
That's my opinion, of course.
In what way?
