An influencer has gone viral after claiming she is “too attractive” to get a boyfriend, claiming that men are so “intimidated” by her appearance that they are “afraid” to ask her out.
Hope Schwing, 24, of Los Angeles, California, has never been in a serious relationship and admits to not having much dating experience.
The ‘chronically single’ influencer says she’s independent and doesn’t feel the urge to settle down; However, her love life came under the spotlight when she posted a video of herself blaming her good looks for her lack of a partner.
In the clip, she looks dejected as the caption reads, “Nobody talks about how hard it is to literally be so hot you can’t get a (boyfriend) because all the men are extremely intimidated and afraid of you.” Being incredibly hot is honestly a curse.
An influencer has gone viral after claiming she is “too hot” to get a boyfriend, claiming that men are so “intimidated” by her appearance that they are “afraid” to ask her out.
Hope Schwing, 24, from Los Angeles, California, describes herself as “chronically single” and claimed in a tongue-in-cheek TikTok video that her good looks are to blame for her lack of a boyfriend.
Although Hope insisted that her video was intended to be ‘satire,’ it sparked a furious debate in the comments section, where many people were quick to agree with her.
Hope was quick to clarify in the comments section that she was referring to the comment as ‘satire’, but the idea still resonated with users, with the video racking up more than 3.7 million views and 474,000 likes.
One viewer commented, “Especially when you also have a personality and standards and they can’t match it all up.”
“It’s a blessing and a curse, honey,” another user agreed.
Someone else quipped, “I’m going to believe this to be true about me because any other explanation will be the last straw for me.”
“Convincing myself that’s why I’m single,” said user Taylor.
User Joey commented, “The way you said this was satire, but it’s not… like I literally feel like this is true of me,” while another TikToker named Olivia chimed in: “This is not satire, is identifiable.”
“You’re absolutely right,” Matthew confirmed.
Fortunately, Hope is perfectly happy just the way she is.
Hope insists she’s perfectly happy to be single, even though she “makes jokes about how much she ‘hates’ him.”
Although Hope claimed her video was a joke, several commenters expressed their agreement, with some joking that they plan to blame their own appearance for their single status.
“I make jokes about being single and how I ‘hate’ it, but I’m totally fine being single for as long as it takes,” the comedy influencer told NeedToKnow.online.
‘The video that says I’m ‘too intimidating and sexy’, I actually don’t mean it. I’ve just noticed a trend among women saying these things to explain why they’re single.
“It’s a more empowering, possibly disingenuous way of promoting ourselves and downplaying chronic singleness.
“I’ve personally been told and heard women give the reason they’re single because ‘the guy wants to be the nice guy’ or ‘I’m too nice, I’m intimidating and scaring him’ – just funny satirical things like that.
“I thought it was pretty obvious in my video that it was satire and that I was existential and dramatic, but clearly that didn’t come to pass.
“The funny thing is that the women who comment are like, ‘This isn’t satire, it’s relatable,’ or ‘real.'” Men, on the other hand, are basically insulting me, calling me ugly and almost looking crazy.
“I’ve never been in a serious relationship, except for ‘puppy love’ type things in the early years of high school that didn’t last more than a month. Nothing serious.
‘I don’t have a lot of dating experience because I don’t really have an urge to go out.
‘I’m a busy girl and I think that when it’s time to date, he’ll come to me. I don’t think I’m the one chasing him.
‘Since I’ve been independent all my life, I’m used to being single.
It seems that in Los Angeles, dating is almost impossible. Everyone is busy or just not ready for commitment, which I totally understand.’
