Time to play bad cop again

This blog is probably going to prevent me from finding my dream job. Alas, I cannot escape my fate and am forced to bring you the science behind the reason I am so often perceived as a jerk.

First, men find thin, seductive women to be the most attractive (that should have been their headline!)

Led by Dustin Wood, the Wake Forest team surveyed 4,000 men and women ages 18 to 70-plus and asked them how attractive they found people of the opposite sex who were depicted in photographs, reports News.com. The subjects in the images ranged in age from 18 to 25.

What men like: Men defined a woman’s beauty by her physical attributes. Women who appeared to be thin and seductive received the highest ratings. Men were also particularly attracted to women who appeared to be confident. Men were very similar to each other in the body type they preferred.

What women like: Women had a more diverse range of responses than men, with some rating particular men very attractive while other women found the same men not attractive at all, reports News.com.

Well, that should be pretty obvious. The sexual market never has been, nor will it ever be egalitarian. Youth and attractiveness are de facto indicators in choosing a mate for men.

Proof with some humor thrown in? Eat it up. (Blogger is refusing to upload the image I want right now. Damn.)

But for women, it’s very different: physical attributes count for some, but not all of their discretion in mating. Personality, confidence and dominance are likely to rate higher for all women. Which is at odds with the modern feminine movement.
The men transforming into female hybrids (and dab hands at dusting)

Mrs Kaye says many women return from the office and bully their husbands into doing the housework.

She added: ‘It’s not entirely our fault, because the demands of the workplace have changed us, and brought out our more masculine side.

‘But unfortunately we’re taking that home with us every evening into the domestic sphere, and often bullying our men into submission.

‘Many of us are so focused, decisive and assertive, that the only role left for our husbands is one where they comply and let us take charge – traditionally feminine traits.

‘But the irony is, we don’t actually want men like that, and we end up eventually resenting them for not being more dominant and fearless.’

Well, no shit. Despite what we might want to think, we are still very much governed by instinct and evolutionary wiring.

That’s the good stuff – you may not like it, but you know it’s true and I’m not worried about whether or not the truth hurts.

And now for a few amusing bits.

He Said: Guys Advice to Girls

I think if life were like high school, dating would actually be a lot simpler and more straightforward: “You wanna go out?” “Sure.” Cut to the lovers holding hands. (It still beats internet hookups, that’s for damn sure.)

At 26, that’s more or less how it boils down for me, still. I don’t know what you’re doing.

She Said: Guys Advice to Girls:

3. And last, but not least: don’t give a cute older guy a blow job in the cab of his truck after the party because you think it will make him like you. It won’t. Plus, he probably has some sort of STD.

Yes it will, and no he doesn’t.

This was written in the nicest way possible. And says virtually nothing of interest or value, but it does say it very nicely, doesn’t it?
