Another day another relationship study.
When I was in University all I wanted to do was study sex and the opposite sex. Now 20years later, I still want to study sex and the opposite sex. The more things change…
I did a study in University where we were sent into bars to determine what people found attractive. Men liked good looks (big surprise there), but preferred women who “attractively fit in”. No Lady Gaga outfits, despite the sex appeal. Think sexy jeans and a nice top. Beautiful, friendly but not trying to hard.
Women it seemed, liked men that paid attention to them, acted cool and confident, and mirrored them to make them feel safe. Meaning, when you took a drink, the guy in question took a drink and you felt more comfortable.
Now a new study has gone one step further and asked about specifics.
No great insight but it seems that men like smiling women.
“Women who smile are absolutely very attractive”. That was by far the most attractive expression. So ladies smile and the men think you are much hotter.
For men?
Guys, want to look sexy and get the girl? Don’t smile too much. “Look brooding or show a bit of shame instead. Women find happy men less sexually attractive than those with expressions that show pride or hint that they have done wrong and know it, according to Canadian researchers.”
So the slightly mischievous bad boy in the know is what works for women. I told you, not ground breaking but just a reminder the next time you are heading out to get in the game.
