Are there any? What are some bad things you've experienced? And if this doesn't apply to you, what do you imagine attractive people have a harder time with? Joke answers are acceptable but let's try to be as honest as we can.

I would imagine getting hit on all the time would be hard.

Opinions and interests comes second

It depends.

If we're talking this "Reality" Count me out.

I don't like "Humans" of this "Reality" so this would be a insanely huge downside.

I'm not too sure being attractive can have a downside. Unless someone finds you so attractive to the point they stalk, and possibly try to kill you if they can't have you...

The downsides of being attractive are that you will never get to know the struggle.

I'm assuming the OP meant something like beautiful instead. As I haven't seen anything of BlueOni's appreance, and yet find her quite attractive.

I think I fall fairly into the average appearance category. People don't seem to pay any much attention to me until I speak. I actually rather appreciate that. So I imagine beautiful women would get rather annoyed by a lot of unsolicited attention if they were mildly introverted like myself.

yeah actually there are downside. For example part of being attractive is dressing well, keeping your body in shape, and ...well.... grooming i.e having hair done nicely etc. these are downsides because people consider you attractive so they expect these things from you ALL the time. and as soon as your hair is a mess, or your body isn't bangin, or you're looking grubby cause you feel lazy people seriously treat you different, almost poorly. So it's like the second you change (for the worse) lots of people turn two face on ya.

and lets be real here, people treat you better when you're considered good looking and you get used to that treatment. you almost expect if we are being honest here. so as a result you notice when that treatment goes away if you stop looking as good for whatever reason. so then you feel compelled to always look good to get preferential treatment. it's a sad/sick cycle really

When you're used to shit being easy, your tolerance for bullshit and problems is minimal. You only start learning some determination after having to really fight uphill, like a former poster suggested. Some very cute girls especially, never have any, When shit gets fucked up they just diffuse responsibility/try to get someone to do the shit for them, otherwise they just bitch and don't get the shit done.

Lots more two-facedness from acquaintances.

Keeping up with appearances and expectations of others.

People thinking they can harass you with retarded-ass or gross shit especially when you don't know them.

I never considered any of these things a burden. I mean isn't common sense to want to stay in good shape and isn't personal grooming simply a given?

I've been blessed with incredible talents and opportunities; I'm constantly surrounded by love and praise; but when you're placed on a pedestal like that for so long, you become separated from the people that put you there in the first place. Everyone assumes I'm too good for them - that I'm on a level that they simply can't attain. It's become impossible to form any sort of meaningful relationship with people.

Which is why celebrities usually date celebrities.

Never met anyone all that special. Maybe the governor's wife.... but she was a snob, and I wasn't very wowed by her.

Constant unwanted attention, assumptions that one is unintelligent, envy from others, and the risk of falling victim to vanity and narcissism all spring to mind.
