It's a hard fact of life, but it's true to a degree. In my line of work though, even if a woman is drop dead gorgeous, if she doesn't give a good massage, she won't get picked as often as an average looking woman who gives a killer massage.
Good looking people do not need to try as much as 'average' looking people to get where they want to go. Is that fair? No.
That's life though. It isn't fair.
