If you've been on a dating site lately — or ever, really — you've likely run into people who you may consider out of your league based on physical appearance. Not Paula Jayne Allen, an Essex woman who says that she's actually too sexy for dating sites. Yes, all of them. The internet can't even handle her.
Paula Jayne Allen, who is 33 years old and has done some modeling the past (like you needed to ask), says she's cursed with good looks and a size six body that just won't quit. And all that made her finding men to date a living hell.
'I decided to try it because all of the sites guarantee to match you up with someone who shares your interests, so it's more about personality, and I was fed up with all of the men in the bars looking for skirt.
'But it made no difference.
'You'd regularly get people getting in contact just saying, "Fancy meeting up for a f**k?"
'You'd get married men just wanting fun and you'd get people saying, "I just need someone for one night, can you do me a favour?"
'It really was truly awful.'
No disrespect to Allen, but the experience she had doesn't really seem like something that is peculiar only to people who are so hot that they literally burn with the heat of a thousand dying suns. In fact, I'm pretty sure that lots of dudes (and probably some women) send out "wanna fuck" messages in massive spurts to hundreds of people, hoping someone will bite. And if Allen hasn't noticed, all different types of people are into fucking, not just really really hot ones.
Allen's interview, which she gave to The Daily Mail in a response to an article written by a woman who said she couldn't find any dates online because of her weight is not really ridiculous, it's just painfully misguided. It's also not clear why this kind of news is news aside from the fact that publications like The Mail want us to gaze upon Allen's Grecian form and comment on how her looks are actually pretty average and that if she's having trouble meeting men, it might be that there's something else going on, like the fact that anyone who says that "I'm too hot" for anything may have more of a personality issue than a looks one (remember Samantha Brick?). And another thing: Online dating is hard for everyone, regardless of looks, financial status or level of education. For instance, I once went out with a dude who adopted an English accent halfway through. I didn't blame that on my hotness, instead I realized that there might be lots of things that dude was trying to work out.
Of course, Allen may not be wrong and her problems with online dating (all in the past because she is now married) may have had to do with her fantastic good looks. Maybe good-looking people really do have it harder than the rest of us. Just ask Jon Hamm.
Allen knows that her opinions may raise some eyebrows, but she says she has an important message:
'I know there will be some backlash but I don't mean any of this in that way.
'I've never won awards or used my beauty to get anywhere.
'My best friend is a size 20, but she doesn't care in the slightest - we're like little and large - and but she gets more attention than I do because she has so much confidence.
'It doesn't matter about the size, just whether you are happy in yourself.'
