    Lets face it, we are all human, and if we were a manager at say....hardees (god forbid), any normal guy would hire an attractive girl over an average/ugly one. (Obviously they also hire based on hygiene, but I mean just because the employer is attracted to the girl)

    Have you had any situations like this? Been hired on because of your physical appearance? A cop let you off of a ticket? Played in 2 episodes of Kojak?

    Any of these things happen to you?

    Well unless you're working some manual labor job, I think being able to spell "hire" would help you get a job over your looks :p

    Ugh, my bad on that. My Dad (English teacher) would rape me for that.

    When I worked at Best Buy they only hired attractive people. Next time you're at Best Buy, look for a few ugly people. Hard to find! (Maybe just my manager's bias)

    Yeah the girls that work in the videogame section of mine seem abnormally hot. You may be on to something there.

    lol, our store only had guys doing the nerdy stuff. Hot girls were at the front!

    (When I said hot, I should have said they made some exceptions for guys)

    Being in shape makes women more forgiving when they have to be the one to pay for dinner. :big grin:

    It has given me a lot more self confidence, so I think it's helped me a lot indirectly.

    I was fat last year. Decided I wanted to be better lookin. Took 3 months, lost 100 pounds, so finally I could see my mucles ( I was pretty buff from sports, but just fat) and also added on to the muscle...After that I had a GF in like 2 weeks...Broke up w/ her tho after a while, have another one now going on 6 months. It makes you more confident/happy about yerself, so I would say its getting me ahead in life for now.

    It is going to help me tenfold when getting a job. I have noticed an increase in my fire skills.

    My health is tied directly to my happiness. Took me 3 years of decaying to realize that. Now i'm getting back on track.

    Working out and looking good will help you in virtually every facet of life in some way, shape or form. Period.:hsd:
