Some people think they have it rough. And then there are the preternaturally attractive, some of who claim that being beautiful is its own burden. They insist that because of their looks, they aren't taken seriously, that they're ignored, and that their self-esteem has suffered. "Nobody talks to you," says one woman of her plight. "Nobody wants to take you out."

While I think people do make assumptions upon appearance, let's be honest: I think beautiful people experience more perks than problems. What do you think? Is it difficult to be really, really, ridiculously good looking? And are there any assumptions — positive or negative — that you have about the physically attractive?
