[ +39 / -5] Of course hahahaha Even males are popular even if they’re good looking but jackasses hahaha They get the title of being a ‘bad guy’ hahaha For men or women, this is something that cannot be fixed. It’s like how people shop for prettier things even if the product offers less convenience for the money.

[ +29 / -1] So sad haha this goes same for both men and women

[ +13 / -7] This is the same for men. Even if the guy is a jackass, girls like them if he is hot???
