People Explain Which Things Are Not As Attractive As People May Think

So many things always seem like a good idea at first.

That is what happens when the bandwagon begins.

First there are the select few onboard.

Then the explosion of mass appeal.

Then for awhile we're in all the rage.

Eventually you look at a certain "thing" and realize... "oh not cute."

Like a McDonald's McRib. No.

It's not BBQ, it's not pork.

No. What else can we ad to the list of not hot?


Redditor koolxxxxxxxxwanted to compare notes on what is something that is not as sexy when you really think about it.

They asked:

"What's not as attractive as people think?"

So we have to rethink a few things about what is enticing to us. For me it's exercise. You?

"I can't believe so many people just get rid of all their wrinkles and skin tone it's so weird. I actually really like stuff like smile lines it just shows how someone is probably quite kind. :)"

"Lip injections."

"I swear it's like an epidemic in my country. Every single one has it or at least considers it, including myself. Many with a face beyond recognition. It doesn't help that it is not talked about enough and every single person on TV has at least 1ml of something in their mouth."

Bad Smarts

"Playing dumb to get attention. F-ing drives me nuts."

rcahelbug70

"I am a woman nearing 40. All my life I have heard men claim they like intelligent women but my experience tells me otherwise. Some men may like intelligent women sometimes but no man likes a woman smarter than them."

"I’m naturally blonde, so I have a game I like to play with anyone who is instantly condescending to me. Basically I play stupid, gradually removing IQ points by the question, until they realize I’m not stupid at all and baiting them. It pisses them off and makes my day a bit brighter."

Eye Roll

"Bragging about how many people you’ve slept with or how many people wanna sleep with you."

fcangirl

"I was on a train the other day and had to hear some guy rattle on to his friends about all the ethnicities/nationalities of women he's messed with for like 20 minutes before my stop. I could not roll my eyes any harder."

"The way I see it is most of us are adults here and have done stuff with people previously. But that doesn't mean I'm going to go into all the nasty details of who what when where and how or even the why."

"The sun tan (usually fake) that makes people look like oranges."

"chasing"

"Completely unoriginal, but playing hard to get. I don't like 'chasing.' If you say no, I'm accepting a f**king no."

ThatRandomDev

"Yea dude, I was chasing a girl in college and she just kept saying no to dates, going to parties, just hanging out. A few months later I started seeing another girl, turned out to be her roommate and she flipped out because she had a crush on me. I was like wtf?"

Where you going?

"Revving your car engine to the max. It’s annoying."

user100372

"Especially when you are just walking down the street, paying no mind to the road (obviously to where you're going), and out of nowhere someone just drives by and revs their engine to the max."

lavliex

"It's only acceptable when you're driving through a tunnel. The acoustics in them makes revved engines sound amazing."

I'm Choking

"Stop marinating in cologne and perfume. It makes me instantly dislike being around you."

throwingplaydoh

"I have a food delivery driver that bathes in perfume. I do contactless delivery so she just leaves the food outside, but I always know it was her because the smell when I open the door is still crazy strong. I feel like some people don't know how strong it is."

The day Joe Biden won the 2020 Presidential Election, people literally took to the streets to celebrate, giving an idea that people weren't so sad to see his predecessor leave office.

Indeed, many think so ill of the 45th President of the United States, that people have a hard time even saying or writing his name.

Throughout his tumultuous, often headline-making four years in office, he was frequently referred to as the "worst President of all time."

But was he?

Redditor Unaball3r was curious to hear who the Reddit community considered the all time worst leader of the free world, leading them to ask:

"Who was actually the worst President in US History and why?"

It's hard to beat great sex.

But, particularly for singletons, sex isn't always easy to come by.

Then too, as far too may people know, there is also never a guarantee that sex is going to be great.

Luckily, sex is far from the only known form of pleasure.

Some might even say there are other things which are even more pleasurable than sex, and likely much easier to come by.

Redditor sparklingshanaya was curious to learn the things people find as or more pleasurable than sex, leading them to ask:

"What is an alternative but equivalent pleasure to sex?"

We all pride ourselves in knowing random bits of trivia.

While "useless knowledge" is the common parlance for these little fun facts we, often randomly, know, that seems an unfair label.

After all, who knows when a subject comes up in conversation, and you might be the only one who can answer a group question.

All thanks to the fact that you know a random piece of knowledge almost no one else on Earth seems to know.

Redditor Just_Free_Tea7 was curious to learn some of these obscure pieces of trivia, leading them to ask:

"What is a fact that you think barely anyone else knows?"
