The problem is, when someone needs that kind of attention, you're never going to be fully able to trust them. No matter what they say, given the opportunity, they would likely stray. When their brand is flaunting their features, it would go against their inner-most workings to say no, even if deep down they really don't want to. They've thrown this persona out there, and more often then not, they'll have to live up to it.

I've experienced it first hand. At first, you encourage it, you want them to keep doing it, because it gives you what you want - a nice view. Encouraging it makes it okay. They seem surprised you consider it cheating when they get caught. They weren't doing nothing bad. They're just being who they are, the same person you encouraged to flaunt it.

If a person is truly beautiful, he doesn't need to make that who he is because he's already there. Showing off who they are is just encouraging them to embrace their insecurities and need for approval. When you meet someone like that, and you're not just looking for a booty call, you'd be better off walking away.

Of course, it's probably not fair to say that anyone who uses their looks for popularity, specifically on platforms, are people you should steer clear of. Maybe it's something they can turn off when they're not online. Maybe it's just a persona they use as a tool, and when they're not using the tool they can turn it off and be the person you need and deserve. For myself, for a real relationship, I couldn't take the chance.
