Why do a lot of people want good looking friends and reject people who they consider ugly in terms of friendship?

Update:

Sorry, I meant they reject them in terms of friendship....I understand people want to be attracted to their partner/ bf/ gf/ spouse....but why reject someone you're not attracted to when it comes to friendship? What is the reason behind being so shallow?

    Theyre shallow because they're insecure in their own appearance and view themselves as ugly , the ugly person reinforces that belief in them . It's insecurity within themselves, if they're not so happy with on their own looks and may feel that they're ugly they feel that the ugly person would remind them of the feelings they don't like about themselves and are trying to hide , so being around an ugly person may bring about the very feelings they were trying to suppress of themselves.. it has nothing to do with the ugly person necessarily just a reflection that they don't like withing themselves and it isn't the ugly person fault they feel that way about themselves. and think being around cute pretty people feels better about themselves and boosts those same feelings that they're trying to suppress.

    Source(s): Being around the cute ones may help increase their esteem and around the non cute ones It lowers them esteem, especially if they don't have a good sense of self esteem to begin with. But this is mainly with those who already have low esteem and also how they view and are on themselves.

    With age you come to realize that pretty things aren’t always good for your soul. You have to be open to making friends of all kinds. Unfortunately being ugly on the inside doesn’t turn you ugly on the outside 🥵. Stop worrying about what others do and focus on your own happiness. When you’re young, people like to hang out with attractive people to get the perks of being approached in a group by boys or to show off their attractive friend group. They feel embarrass to be by a less attractive person.

    Perhaps if you are a 15 year old girl.

    Everyone else doesn't really care what their friends look like because they are their friends, not their lovers.

    Some people befriend people who they find less attractive than themselves as to make themselves stand out more.
