A WOMEN has shared about her struggle to make friends because of her good looks.
TikTok users Ariana reveals that she is desperate to find a best friend, but her ‘beautiful privilege’ always gets in the way.
Ariana admits that she fully expects to be “attacked” for talking about the downside of good looks.
Speaking on her video, she said: “Obviously the privilege is that we know this, we know there’s a lot of upside to that but there’s also a bad side that nobody talks about.”
“I don’t have many girlfriends. It’s something I’ve struggled with for a long time and I never really understood why.
“Girls will always say like ‘oh my gosh, love you so much, you’re gorgeous, we’re going out, we’re going to do this, we’re going to do it’ and the time comes and I always being sidelined and talked about poor behind their backs.
“It never made sense because I was always kind and honest.
“Honestly, I’m completely confident that it has nothing to do with my personality.”
Ariana explained that during college, she would come home every weekend because she had no friends and would cry with her mother.
Her mother eventually explains that the reason people are reluctant to befriend her is because “people don’t like being the prettiest person in the room” and that she “threats people.”
She continued: “It’s not what I think, women are all beautiful, I love women.
“I literally cry once a month about how ugly I think I am.”
Ariana explains that she’s finally found a group of guys who are now her best friends, but she’s still on the hunt for a woman.
“I’m tired of women thinking we’re all in a contest, we’re all pretty, can we just be friends?” Ariana said.
“People always think pretty people have all the friends, and just live to the fullest, but really we’re just the loneliest.”
Speaking directly to the camera, she added: “Girls, I want to be your friend – I’m looking for supportive women.
“I just want to have a soulmate, I will go through hell with you and for you – where are you?”
Since then, her videos have received more than 2.7 million views, with many other women admitting they’ve had similar experiences.
One wrote: “Oh. Mine. God. I think I’m the only one.”
“This is really how I feel,” added another, while a third wrote, “She is right, speak louder.”
However, there are also some who disagree, arguing that there must be another reason why she is having difficulty making friends.
One commented: “You are in denial about other factors that keep you from being friends with girls. There are a lot of beautiful girls who don’t go through this. “
