Ever looked at your munter of a mate and wondered how the shit is he punching so high? Damn, his missus is a straight 10 and after sinking just two do-bros your buddy can't even string a comprehensive sentence together...
Well, finally science has an answer.
Why do hot chicks end up with absolute mingers? Cause we have great personalities?
NERRRP. THAT ANSWER IS INCORRECT.
Sorry lads, turns out she probably doesn't give two f*cks about your hilarious sense of humour...
A scientific study by the Florida State University has found chicks are actually happier pairing up with dudes who are a few points below them on the hot-scale, because it makes 'em feel better about themselves.
Results reveal that having a physically attractive husband may have negative consequences for wives.
If you neeed some clarification on this "beauty and the beast" syndrome, essentially if a woman knows she's hotter than her partner, she feels more secure in her relationship and can relax on the diet and exercise front without fear of her partner falling out of attraction with her.
With less pressure to feel hot on a superficial level - the woman can focus more on the important shit in life, i.e. being happy.
Meanwhile if a chick finds a smoking hot dude, you have the opposite effect.
Researchers explain: "The results reveal that having a physically attractive husband may have negative consequences for wives, especially if those wives are not particularly attractive, the research suggests there might be social factors playing a role in women’s disordered eating.”
Ladies if you truly want to be happy, you really need to lower those standards.
MEANWHILE, men tend to make better husbands/partners when they land hot chicks. They feel so stoked to have landed such a sweet deal, dudes generally wind up more committed and invested in their relationships. Read more on the study here.
So, essentially, ladies if you truly want to be happy, you really need to lower those standards...
Hi-5s all round to all you fellas who are already punching.
