Perhaps it is time to look in the mirror and decide that you should be at the Ugly Bug Ball. The Ugly Bug Ball is a dating site for those who are aesthetically challenged. Though I am surprised that this site doesn't already include at least 95 percent of society. So for those who wonder whether a site for the more Shreky (and, who knows, techy) has no chance of success, might I reveal that the Ugly Bug Ball has just announced its first engagement?
The Telegraph tells me that Tom Clifford and Janine Walker, two of the Ugly Bug Ball's members, are to be betrothed.
If you are cynical enough to imagine that it has taken some time for them to become used to their unique features, then you are to be uniquely pitied.
For it was only in August that Clifford, 36, wrote to Walker that he had "a face that makes children cry." (Personally, I feel he was using a technique known as "underpromise and overdeliver.") Walker, 31, offered the Telegraph a moving tribute to Clifford and to their relationship: "I appreciate that Tom isn't Brad Pitt, but then I'm no Angelina Jolie either." The Ugly Bug Ball is so pleased to herald the site's first engagement that it has offered the beautiful, happy couple a honeymoon-- in an Ugly Bug caravan in Wales.
Beautiful People then placed the banned billboards on the back of trucks which were driven around New York.
While I wouldn't dream of offering a desperate cliche about beauty being in the eye of the beholder, it seems clear that there is some extremely peculiar beholding going on in the world. Yes, they're the folks who put stunning pictures of themselves up on and e Harmony in the hope that no one will notice that, in real life, they bear rather more resemblance to, well, character actors.
A recent search turned up one user asking if they were the only person there, another sharing favorite quotes and a post from someone whose horse was suffering from self-confidence issues.

Managing Director of Beautiful People Greg Hodge states that people were tired of using mainstream online dating sites when looking for an attractive partner, since they allow anyone to join and have mediocre or non-existent filters for finding attractive people.
Hodge acknowledges that attraction is a strong criterion when romantically approaching prospective mates, and attempts to transfer this aspect of dating onto the website.
