There's no denying that the world is easier for attractive people. There have even been studies done on this phenomenon.

Attractive people get paid more, get considered for more jobs, and they're likelier to have much stronger social skills than someone who is considered unattractive. This isn't to say that attractive people do not succeed on the basis of their efforts and talents, but the hill is much tougher to climb if you're considered less attractive.

Suppose you wake up one day to find that you're drop dead gorgeous.

Just kidding – you already are!

But what would you do?

People shared their their ideas with us after Redditor _Lanaaaaa asked the online community,

"You're now the most attractive person in the world, what would be the first thing you'd do?"

"Probably..."

"Probably still find something about my body or face to be insecure about."

too_annoyed

Ouch! This is probably the realest response here. We all felt this.

"Replace..."

"Replace my online avatar with my actual face, instead of some anime character."

How liberating! Poor anime characters... they didn't realize they'd be retired so quickly.

"Strip nude..."

"Strip nude in front of a full length mirror and worship my immaculate jawline and my perfectly structured body."

FinancialCounty710

Whoa, I feel like I intruded on something personal... get a room!

"Get..."

"Get a free coffee from McDonald's."

IndividualUse6959

Wait a minute, they do that? I guess I'm ugly...

"Get dressed..."

"Get dressed and go walk through a huge crowd to see how they react. Nobody ever notices me."

Iride3wheels

That's what you think! You'd be surprised. You might have a secret admirer somewhere.

"Walk around..."

"Walk around complimenting people and telling them how gorgeous they are."

[deleted]

Aww, this is sweet! They'd no doubt appreciate it. Go ahead and make someone's day!

"I'd go..."

"I'd go into acting. Why not?"

[deleted]

Why not, indeed. If you are most attractive person you will get some work even if you aren’t Daniel Day Lewis. And you can take acting classes after getting some small parts.

"I'd wonder..."

"I'd wonder how in the f*ck the world became so ugly."

KPWrath

I mean, fair. It'd probably shock you, being such a hot god among mere mortals.

Whoa!

"I already am."

BlueIsAGreatColor

I think many aspire to have this degree of confidence.

"Same thing..."

"Same thing I do every day. Try to take over the world!"

scjjay

What's that sound? Is that the Pinky and the Brain theme song I hear in the distance?

Given all this, I'm surprised no one said what seems the most viable option: Secure a plethora of sugar daddies and modeling contracts to make bank before it all ends.

Work smart.

Dating and the search for love and companionship... What a nightmare.

This journey plays out nothing like in the movies.

Every Prince or Princess (or everything in BTW) seems to have a touch of the psycho.

The things people say during what should be simple dinner conversation can leave a dining partner aghast.

Like... do you hear you?

Redditor detroit_michigldan wanted to discuss all the best ways to crash and burn when trying to make a romantic connection. They asked:

"You're on a date and it's going really great. What can another person say to ruin it completely?"

When we first meet someone–whether through mutual friends, at school, or in a new work setting–we generally feel people out to determine if they're worth getting to know.

Children tend to believe just about anything they hear.

That there are monsters under your bed, watching too much TV will make your head explode, and silly faces will be permanent if you make them too often.

The sky is truly the limit when it comes to silly things that children will believe.

Some call it naivitée, other's youthful innocence.

But it's hard not to look back with embarrassment on certain things we believed as a child, that today might simply seem dumb.

Redditor Disastrous_Toe_6548 was curious to learn the multitude of silly things people believed when they were children, leading them to ask:

"What's the dumbest thing you believed as a kid?"
