Mom’s dating struggle: ‘I can’t find love because I’m too good looking’

It is not too often one comes across someone who reckons they are too good looking to find a partner. In fact, until now, I don’t think I have ever heard anyone say that. But, Jenna Thomson, a mother and bikini model, feels exactly that way. Jenna feels it’s impossible to find love thanks to the way she looks.[1][2]

When you’re too good looking to find real love

According to Jenna mentioned above, when you look a certain way, finding a good, honest man is not easy. The mother of two says decent men are intimidated by her. She also says for the past two years; her dates have only ever wanted one thing. And, that was not to be committed. Chatting to ITV hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield for a segment titled “I’m too good looking to find love,.” she said:[2]


I think I intimidate guys. I intimidate nice guys. So I seem to attract guys who are after one thing. Or people who think they’ll have a go, have a shot and they seem to just want hook-ups. No one is looking for anything serious.”

Jenna went on to say how dating apps were a huge problem, she further explained:[1]


“It’s really shallow. I think people get a kick out of how many swipes they get. So that narrows down any potential nice people. I’ve had some serious disasters. I had this guy who confessed that he was married, relatively late on into us dating.

It quite cold and wet on the day that he told me. He told me face to face and he actually slipped and fell over after me as I was trying to walk off. I had to take him to hospital as he knocked himself out.”

Is her own image the reason she only attracts these types?

Talk show host Holly Willoughby asked the obvious question, would Jenna be willing to change her own appearance in order to attract the perfect man. Jenna answered, and honestly, I can not disagree with what she said![2]


“If you change yourself, you’ll never be truly happy. How long can you wear a mask before it starts to slip? You are not going to be authentic to the person you are dating.

“I think why to change the way I look to fit into a category for the sort of person I’m looking for. Maybe it’s just that I haven’t met that particular person yet.”

 The model said she is very picky when it comes to men

Is she the issue or is she really just too good looking?

Jenna has been mocked and called a narcissist for her opinion on her own beauty and her inability to find Mr. Right. Phil asked her why then other good-looking people have found love, and perhaps she was the problem? Jenna replied:[1]


Maybe it’s the type of guy I go for. I have a definite type, and I am quite picky. Also, I am choosy, and I do have a definite type of look, and that comes with a certain territory.

“I like heavily tattooed guys, good looking, look after themselves, gym-goers normally. Also, I just need someone who is able to connect with me on a deeper level, and I don’t do this surface stuff.

“I don’t like small talk, and I like someone who has got a bit of depth and personality. This is why I quite people who are heavily tattooed. They are normally quite deep and artistic. I am really choosey but why not? I have two little children, so I have to be picky.”
