Attractive People Share What They Get Away With That Regular People Can't

Being attractive has its advantages. People approach you, you're likely to get free stuff, and you can generally get away with things other people can't. Is it fair? Of course not. But hey, that's life.

-Willie- asked, What can attractive people get away with that normal people can't?

Submissions have been edited for clarity, context, and profanity.

One of the best aspects of being cute - weirdness is charming.

Being awkward. It's pretty easy for an attractive and awkward guy to come off as funny and boyishly charming rather than just plain weird.

Doesn't matter what you wear if you're cute

Bold fashion choices.

We call it "edgy."

Looking hot in an old holey t-shirt and sweatpants.???????

Nah, people come to us. Especially if we're awkward.

Talking to anyone and everyone randomly.

Dress to undress if you're going out.

Being shirtless or having few clothes.

Just tell us we're pretty.

Having bad social skills. Being socially awkward is a death sentence for ugly to average looking people, but if you're attractive and socially awkward you'll still be noticed and considered endearing.

Cute doesn't mean smart.

Getting hired for jobs they aren't qualified for.

It's true - pretty people get a lot of free stuff. It doesn't suck.

Mooching free meals and drinks.

Yeah but like it's still cute.

Being creepy.

Staring gets creepy, make a move. You're cute, after all.

Staring.

If you're unattractive and you stare at someone: "wtf what a creep."

If you're attractive and you stare at someone: "oh sh_t, he/she is looking at me. I must be looking good today. YES."

Adolescent anxiety officially triggered.

Working at Hollister.

This happens pretty frequently. Evil has an allure.

I heard there was a serial killer who got fan mail in jail because he was attractive. Of course, he didn't get away with the whole murder thing in the eyes of the law, but not everyone in society despises him solely because he was mildly attractive.

Nerds are sexy.

Liking generally nerdy things without being ridiculed for it.

Most people won't admit this but...

Making intentional physical contact (hand on the shoulder, hug, high five, etc) in conversation with communicative partners. With an attractive person, it's flattering and engaging. With an unattractive person, it feels like they're somehow crossing a line.???????

To her or him, unless you're shy and cute, in which case... lure them in.

Just go up to her and say "hi" that's what I do - Attractive person.???????

This is a weird one, but it's true.

For a man, saying hi or joking with a stranger's baby or toddler in public. If attractive and well dressed, you're the best man in the world. If you're frumpy, prepare to be called a pedo or briskly walked away from.

If you're cute, they'll do it.

Asking complete strangers to do "just do me a little favor" with full expectation that they will comply, even when the favor isn't little whatsoever.

We cuties make good salespeople.

Make you miss the signs they have an agenda. A random attractive girl once spoke me up on the bus, only to give me a pamphlet about her church. Er, no thanks.???????

How many times have you caught yourself saying, "ugh, they're so hot though?"

Being a sh_tty person.

Pretty much.

Everything.

If you don't have any experience with construction, it can be pretty interesting to watch those reality HGTV shows (I know I'm addicted at this point). Some of the best episodes can be the one's where they open up the walls to find the builder didn't do anything right, causing a huge blow to the budget. The drama!

As someone who doesn't know much about building, and is dreaming of homeownership, Redditor Vast_Recognition_682 asked a question I wish I had thought of first.

Unless you've been a member of the armed forces, you may only know drill sergeants as uncompassionate leaders who yell at privates all the time.

Years ago I had a classmate who was a total daredevil... so much so that he would often injure himself. He once drove a bike in the direction of oncoming traffic, just for the hell of it. He got out of that episode unscathed––luckily. By contrast, I prefer keeping all my limbs, and still have them all. I wonder where he is now. Hopefully not too banged up. I did do some stuff unwittingly––like the time I stuck a fork into an electrical socket. I thankfully wasn't shocked too much. I was young and naive.

People told us all about the dangerous things they did when they were younger after Redditor Not-an-Ocelot asked the online community,

"What's the most dangerous thing you did as a kid without realizing?"
