My word, the Department of the Bleedin’ Obvious has been well busy recently, hasn’t it? Their latest offering is of a similar vein:
Women find men more attractive if they see other women admiring them, a study has suggested.
Psychologists discovered that a man was judged more desirable by a woman if she saw her peers using positive facial expressions, such as smiling.
I fully expect them to follow up with other similar studies. Might I suggest one into the well known phenomenon mentioned in Scrubs: that women are soooo much more interested in a guy if said guy is unavailable.
J.D. spots a hot girl.
J.D.’s Narration: Oh, hellooo. Women are checking me out lately. Was it the ten push-ups I’ve been cranking out every other Sunday? Perhaps. More likely it was the pledge I made not to date anyone until Elliot did. See, since then, the gals have been all over me.
Girl: Can I buy you a drink?
J.D.: I’m sorry, sugar, this store is closed.
J.D.’s Narration: They’ve been all over me.
She puts her legs behind her head.
J.D.: Very impressive, but I’m sorry.
You have some…gum…on your shoe.
She laughs, embarrassed.
Because if scientists could figure out how and why this happens, then they’d perhaps be one step close into evening it out. Which would make life so much easier for the men of the world.
May I be so bold as to say that it’s not exactly straightforward for the women of the world, either.
Oh, you can say it. Whether people believe it or not is a whole other question.
The women do, in fact, have all the power these days.
And they look good as well. Where’s the justice in that, eh?
That would be some women you two are talking about, said the slightly-disgruntled Spinster of this Parish.
So women find men more attractive if they’re not available?
