I know this sounds shallow, and its not whats on the outside its whats on the inside and all that jazz... but people perceive you based upon who you surround yourself with. If you are out at the club, movies , anywhere, and you are with a a group of ugly friends, girls will be much less likely to approach you, or much less interested in you if you approach her. In a perfect world looks wouldn't matter and the pretty girl in the room would be accepting and make friends with your friends because they are good people. But the world is not perfect and looks matter. Would you hang out with an ugly or fat person in public, or make friends with an ugly or fat person?
