Have you seen those model couples they put in Vogue, ELLE, I-D etc in reality? Style magazines feed us the dream of a perfect polished couple, but that’s all bullshit. How many couples in which both the girl and the guy looked amazing have you met? Generally, you don’t see that happening. She’s prettier or he’s more handsome. If they’re both on the same page, it won’t work.Take models and rock stars.Or actors and musicians. Or any combo in between.
Most (if not all) of them ended it bad or in divorce. Some killed themselves (have a Sid and Nancy). It’s seriously hard to maintain self confidence and independence in a stunning match. As shallow as it sounds, the best relationships I’ve …seen featured a short overweight girl and a super cute guy or a plain guy and a supermodel/artist/very beautiful and classy woman. It’s a universal law, I think. If you’re both stunning, jealousy, mistrust, co-dependence and fear easily crawl in your bed. A happy relationship doesn’t need high fashion and style. The only fashion you need is wisdom for the heart and the only style you should master is that of caring.
