Pope Francis wants to stay for the time being in a simple Vatican residence instead of moving into the spacious and regal papal apartments, the Vatican said today.

Same time, you also have unwanted haters who want to ruin you cos they are jealous, your lover may always feel insecure, trust issues, fake friends, you could attract the wrong people - like have two 'bad people' fight over you, have a jealous husband send thugs after you cos he saw you with his wife, sleepless nights, etc.
Considering all that, do you think what you stand to lose being too pretty/handsome far outweighs what you gain?
