Don't Hate Me Because I'm Beautiful

And because my ego has not taken enough of a beating recently and because I just love placing myself in completely ridiculous situations, I have embarked on a new cyber-adventure, a social experiment if you will.

Last week, Girl put me on to a UK based dating site exclusively for beautiful people. Called BeautifulPeople.net, it is sort of like Lavalife, except that it is for.. ahem... beautiful people. Gone are the days of online dating sites where any average Joe or Josephine can sign up. BeautifulPeople.net works by having BeautifulPeople.net people (i.e. those already deemed BeautifulPeople.net worthy by previously voted in other BeautifulPeople.net folk). Your profile and picture gets put up for 3 days. In that time, members of the opposite sex either vote yes or no to let you in. Actually, it is a little more complicated than that. The following is the actual phrasing used for voting:

Yes! Certainly!
Hmm, Yes, OK.
Hmm, Not really.
No! Not at all!

I think we can all guess which votes Bea has garnered the most of. In 2 days, 3 hours and 27 minutes, it will be official. Beatrice Petty is not beautiful. Not at all!

Oh sure, I am what some people would call "adorable", or even "very adorable", but beautiful? Perhaps if there was a www.adorablepeople.net I would surely be welcomed with open arms. I'll keep y'all updated on the status of my BeautifulPeople.net application but at this point, it is not looking good as apparently the majority of shallow English people are of the opinion that Bea is not beautiful. Not at all!

I couldn't help it. I just had to go see the site. First of all, it doesn't load worth spit using Firefox on Linux so, I had to find a Windows machine to use IE. Then, I see that even the beautiful people are having trouble. If they are willing to pay $260/year just to meet other beautiful people online then, something isn't quite right. Maybe "beautiful people" are also rich. Maybe "beautiful people" are also dumb. Who knows?

I'm just glad you didn't get swept away into some shallow, plastic society where the brand of your pre-distressed jeans matters more than your character. That's not "beautiful" that's capitalism, the ugly side of it.

Hear hear GH... actually, I have been conversing with a seemingly very nice bloke who is of the opinion that BP (Beautifulpeople.net, not Beatrice Petty) has some of the most shallow people on the planet on it...

I shall be PROUD to not be voted in...

sounds like a very shallow site

I couldn't help myself either: I had to go see it! It looks more like a modeling agency than an online dating service.

Oh Bea, why do you put yourself in these situations where your ego gets a beating? I don't agree with the results you got, but then again, I bet they're looking for a 'I'm blonde, 20, I never eat enough and I've got fake boobs' kind of look! In that case, I think you shoul be proud of not fitting in (I know I am!)!

Beatrice Petty said...

Oh Goodness C... of course they are looking for the bleached blonde big boobed skinny minnies of the world...that's why it so freaking hilarious... Although, I did have blondish hair a while back... and I do have biggish boobs... just missing the skinny minny part... and the not eating bit. See, I'm almost there.

Believe me when I say that my feelings will not be hurt when (if... I still have 2 days to campaign...lol) I am not deemed BeautifulPeople.net worthy.

As for my ego... this will in no way have any effect on it whatsoever. Quite obviously I simply have too much time on my hands. See what happens when Bea is bored and has nothing better to do? Let this be a lesson to you all... I need to be entertained dammit!!!

Oh that is TOO much! Of course the "beautiful" would think of such a shallow way to find love through exclusion. lol

OK....this is kind of scary. Not only was I hit on by this guy over the weekend that kept insisting that I looked like Farrah Fawcet but when I checked my hotmail Inbox this morning, there was an email from BP.com saying I got accepted and that in fact, I am actually beautiful. Farrah and BP in the same weekend - Bea, you do have ESP!!! LOL!!
