The second I heard “Rich chicks are always hotter than poor chicks” on Hot 99.5 this morning I was sold. And I knew I had to keep the discussion alive ;) The talk of money & women combined is enough to stop any A.D.H.D man in his tracks!
But before you jump to conclusions as to whether this theory is true or not, here are the two rationales:
1) People with money can afford all the stuff to make them look purrty. They can buy finer clothes, pay for personal trainers and nutritionists, get their hair did, fix up their teeth, nix fat, and pretty much anything else that money can buy these days.
2) People who are more attractive usually get more opportunities. They carry themselves well, they’re more confident, get more attention, higher paying jobs, etc etc. At least that’s what “the studies” always show ;) Then, according to one of the callers to the show, they mate with OTHER really attractive people thus producing cuter babies and starting a cycle of extreme awesomeness. Hot people making hot money.
There’s no way to prove any of this, of course, but I think both have merit. More money def. allows you to improve your own look & style if you so choose to use it that way. But that’s not to say you couldn’t do your hair & find sexier clothes on the cheap too. Or, for that matter, go in DEBT hawking out all that money for your appearance! Perhaps that’s *why* people are poorer? (See what I did there? I just changed it around and disproved myself ;))
And whether we want to believe it or not, prettier people usually do get more attention than the rest of us. Guess it’s just human nature. But if it makes you feel better, a good portion of them are incredible bitches. Males & females. So I like to remind myself that there’s much more to being beautiful than your looks. It’s called inner beauty, and it’s pretty powerful. Wow… I totally sounded like Vanessa Minnillo there! (Remember that reality show True Beauty? It was awesome.)
So do I think the rich are more attractive than the rest? On average, I’d say yes – at least physically. We could all point to the exceptions of the rule, but I’d be willing to put my money on it if there were ever a way to find out. Does it have anything to do with our own personal finances though? Nope. Sure doesn’t. Just something interesting to think about :) What do you think?
