It is quite common for an average-looking, self-confident man to be more successful with women than someone with a more attractive face. And now there is an explanation.
A study published in Psychological Science found that men whose appearance is far from the standards of beauty, but who have more self-confidence, are more successful than men with higher physical attractiveness.
This study included 96 men and 103 women who participated in quick meetings, where each participant spent three minutes talking to another participant. The results showed that "men who believed they were more attractive than they were, were found to be more attractive than women." And that trust was the key to the success of the meetings.
In addition, the study showed that men who are less concerned about their physical appearance are not only more successful with women, but also raise children with confidence.
It has also been found that more physically attractive men are more likely to cheat.
So now we know two things about the most desired men: women prefer confident and good-hearted boys whose appearance is far from the stereotypes of beauty - scientifically proven.
