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

[rebelmouse-image 18346164 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18346165 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18346166 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Bold fashion choices.

We call it "edgy."

[rebelmouse-image 18346167 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

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

[rebelmouse-image 18346169 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Talking to anyone and everyone randomly.

Dress to undress if you're going out.

[rebelmouse-image 18346170 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Being shirtless or having few clothes.

Just tell us we're pretty.

[rebelmouse-image 18346171 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18346172 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Getting hired for jobs they aren't qualified for.

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

[rebelmouse-image 18346173 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Mooching free meals and drinks.

Yeah but like it's still cute.

[rebelmouse-image 18346174 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Being creepy.

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

[rebelmouse-image 18346175 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18346177 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18346179 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Liking generally nerdy things without being ridiculed for it.

Most people won't admit this but...

[rebelmouse-image 18346180 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18346182 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

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

[rebelmouse-image 18346184 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18346185 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-image 18346187 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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?"

[rebelmouse-image 18346188 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Being a sh_tty person.

Pretty much.

[rebelmouse-image 18346190 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Everything.

People Break Down Which Things Everyone Needs To Hear But No One Has The Guts To Say
Busy_Quail1725/Reddit

There is nothing more frustrating than the things we cannot say, but desperately want to.

Sometimes, we might find ourselves in situations where we are positively desperate to speak up, but for whatever reason can't.

Even though we know deep down, that people will be better off, or things might run more smoothly if we said something.

Redditor MCKlassik was curious to hear the things that people would benefit from hearing, but will likely never be told, leading them to ask:

"What is something most people need to hear but no one has the guts to tell people?"

Before we get started, let's just say that everyone's tolerance levels are different. What might be an okay watch for your might be the worst experience ever for someone else. Our tastes are different and that's what makes film brilliant. We can share our thoughts, our feelings, and our experience with one another and see a work of art through someone else's eyes.

Films can be challenging in what they're trying to say, and if that challenge is too much to answer, don't feel bad for having to turn something off.

Being a law-abiding citizen shouldn't be that difficult.

As long as people obey the rules, maintain their morals, and avoid making extremely bad decisions, they will never see the walls inside a prison cell.

I know we're a culture full of over the top whiners.

We love to go on and on about all the things that bother us.

And all of the life impediments that stand in the way of our happiness.

But we need to dial it down a notch.

There is a difference between actual bodily harm and an inconvenience.

Redditorseesnawsnappywanted to mull over what aspects of life make us feel like actual pain but maybe we're exaggerating. They asked:

"What isn't torture but feels like it?"
