As curses go, being 'too good-looking' isn't really up there with the Hope Diamond. However, one woman claims that her youthful good looks are making it impossible for her to find love.
Last year, 44-year-old Dawn Cousins appeared on This Morning and told Holly and Phil that she refused to settle and was really struggling to find The One. The clip has now resurfaced online and it's still as bizarre as it ever was.
Watch how it played out below:
She told the hosts: "Obviously I'm a very attractive woman, I look very young, I'm very fun and I'm not your typical 44-year-old mother of four children."
While she was saying this, the camera cut to Phil, who couldn't stop himself from smirking - at one point, he even started biting his lip to keep from laughing. He can be savage, can't he?
Dawn carried on regardless, telling the hosts: "I'm finding that younger guys are messaging me but they just want to take me out because I'm hot.
"And then older guys don't put any effort into themselves, but they want me to send them pictures of me looking good and they want to look at my body.
"And then they say, 'Okay, I'll go out with you,' but even if they don't, they still want to go out with me because I look young for my age."
Phil then asked if it's true that her children - aged 18, 22 and 24 - have friends who have asked her out, and Dawn confirmed it, saying: "I don't shout it from the rooftops, but they say, 'Do you want to go shopping? I can pick your mum up from work.'"
Schoey could barely keep his shit together as Dawn continued: "They're not straightly saying, 'I want to date your mum,' or, 'Your mum's hot,' but their undertone is, 'Wow, let me see if I can get in there and take her shopping.'"
He suggested there might be another reason Dawn has been unlucky in love, though, telling her: "You are a very confident woman, there's no question about that. It is going to be intimidating and I've got to say rather unattractive for a man to hear a woman be that confident.
"'I am gorgeous, I am hot, I am too good for you'. Maybe that's why you're single."
But Dawn insisted she wasn't looking for perfection, saying: "What I don't agree with is a guy who could lose a few pounds, lead a healthier lifestyle, not do it because they've got a woman.
"I'm not looking for Mr Perfect, no-one's perfect. I'm looking for a guy that is willing to work on himself and understand what a woman's needs are.
"I need the full package. I need to be stimulated in my mind. Every part of me needs to be feeling like a princess every day."
Well, I've never been happier to be average.
