Science Says What Kind of Men Women are Most Attracted to

Guys are traditionally the pursuers, and even though we live in an enlightened society most women still prefer it that way. But lots of guys wonder what kind of man women are attracted to, and how to bring the best qualities out in themselves. Women tend to vary greatly in tastes. Lucky for most poor dolts who have hardly a clue, science has stepped in to try and answer the dizzying, age-old question of what kind of guy women want. Here are some of the things science has uncovered. If you’re flying without your wingman, you may find yourself cruising over lonesomeville for quite some time. For one thing, women rate men more attractive in group photos rather than when by themselves, at least according to a study out of the University of San Diego. Therefore, it stands to reason you look better when someone’s there with you. Researchers say this is due to something called the “cheerleader effect.” People look more attractive with their faces together, since incongruities in any one person are sort of evened out by the whole group. Another thing, women like men who know how to work a room. If you are always with an entourage and you’re the life of the party, or at least she thinks you are, you look high status and someone fun to be around.

Are you a single dad? Be sure to take your baby out cruising. Just keep it during daytime hours. Not only will you get father of the year, you might score a few phone numbers. A study in France found that men who cooed, smiled at and talked to infants were 40% more likely to score a woman’s phone number than those who ignored a baby. Researchers say it shows a greater propensity for being a good dad, should the couple have offspring. Some guys shave every day. Others sport a righteous beard. But why not shave every ten days? According to Australian researchers, men who did so were seen as the most attractive. This layer of stubble is thought to project just the right level of masculinity. Here’s some simple advice. Get some nice wheels and you’ll turn heads. If you can’t afford it, borrow some. A British study found that the same dude in a Bentley Continental was found way more attractive than one in a Ford Fiesta, even with the same clothes and facial expressions. Status is the reason, and the projection of resources which he may be willing to share with a certain, special lady.

If you’re an animal lover, taking your dog for a walk may not just be a necessity, but a way to meet someone. A French study found that women were three times more likely to give up their digits to a man walking his dog versus one who approached alone. Dogs break the ice. They also project kindness, sensitivity and thoughtfulness, all qualities women find appealing. Got a little extra time? Why not volunteer? A Cornell study found that women who knew a man volunteered found him a better candidate for dating and a long-term relationship, due to the fact that he was more selfless and compassionate. If you really want to get a woman to fall for you, make her laugh. A University of New Mexico study found that those guys who could make a sharp witted quip and make a woman laugh were more likely to have short-term, uncommitted sex than their straight-laced counterparts. These quick bursts reveal creativity and intellect, two qualities women greatly desire.

Lastly, if you want to get more hits on your dating profile, include the words “creative,” “ambitious,” and “laugh.” Dating sight Zoosk did a survey and found profiles that had these words got 33% more messages. Include words like “read” or “book” or exercise words like jogging, lifting weights and the like also increased message frequency. Be sure to take it slow. Mention “drinks” or “dinner” too quickly and your response rate will plummet 35%. So this advice improves your hit rate. But what about quality control?

Ways Men Manipulate that Fly under your Radar


Women historically have been thought to have been the manipulative ones. It was Lady Macbeth that got her husband to kill in order to become king after all. And the number of strong women behind great leaders throughout history has been staggering. How do you think they got there? A woman in those times wasn’t allowed to assert herself. She could only see her ambitions become reality through her husband or sons. Though historically the focus has been on females manipulating, it isn’t only women who play head games. In fact, men manipulate too even though they won’t easily admit it. And if he’s the right guy, his tactics are fine tuned. You aren’t even aware of them. Take a look at the ways men manipulate that fly under your radar and see if you awake from his spell. Has your guy asked you to be his gym partner, and motivate him to get serious about his workout? If so, he may have noticed that you’re carrying around a few extra pounds. Take a deep breath, lots of ladies do this too when they notice a beer gut on their guy.

Have you ever noticed a series of evenings where he sweet talks you into going to the new bar he wants to check out with his friends, or staying in and watching a flick he wants to see, without any regard for what you want? Make sure you assert yourself at least once in a while. And don’t ignore your friends either. Does every weekend have some exciting event he just has to attend, a retirement party, office picnic, birthday parties, and more? Make sure you guys slow down and have some alone time. It sounds like he’s ambitious however. Is he networking for some reason, or angling for a promotion? You should support him, but get him alone one weekend a month. Has your guy ever asked for a favor in front of his friends or others and before you can answer, grabbed you and called you the best or the sweetest? Now you have to do it, or else you look like a fool. Ask to see him alone for a second. He won’t pull that again. Have you ever had a guy buddy up to your dad? Dads are by and large very protective of their daughters. No dude is good enough for his little girl. You have someone to complain to and stick up for you. But to diffuse this, if your guy buddies up with papa bear, your dad may stand up for him, or get confused when it’s time to pick sides. Remind your father who his child really is. That will clear his head. There are lots of ways people manipulate one another. The important point is the intention behind it. Are they looking out for you? Or are they trying to get leverage?
