MEN WANT TO SLEEP WITH DUMB WOMEN!
When it comes to finding a mate, men may not be looking for charm and intelligence, but a woman who looks dumb - or drunk - enough for a 1-night-stand, according to a new study.
In an article in the journal Evolution and Human Behavior, University of Texas at Austin graduate student Cari Goetz and her team focused on the so-called sexual exploitability hypothesis - the idea that men are genetically programmed to look for 'easy' sex.
So, men apparently prefer to have flings with women they consider "airheads" -- but that's not who they want to marry.
In that study men rated 19 out of 22 traits such as stupidity, sleepiness or drunkenness as 'attractive.' In pictures, the dumb-looking and inert women were also perceived as being more attractive than their more lucid or intelligent-looking peers, but only when it came to short-term relationships.
When the men were asked to judge the same liquored-up, silly-looking women in the photos as potential girlfriends and wives, they had entirely lost their appeal on them.
And you guys think a woman is difficult to understand!
