    Now if I can just learn how to flirt... :x:


    I would like to know what he means by "The guys they find appealing tend to have characteristics that are attractive in the short term". It sounds like he is saying that women subconsciously are attracted to the guys that they know they wont last in a long term relationship with. Maybe pointing to a scientific explanation of why women more often go to bed with the bad boys that end up using them. But I understand that the bad boys are more comfortable in "flirting" with women than the nice guy who hides his sexual side, so that also may be a factor.

    I guess I didn't clearly state the main point I started this thread was to point out the research the guy did showing that women ovulating (horny) are more attracted to flirty men.

    I guess I kind of went off topic in my own thread. It was more of a side point, sorry I tricked everyone :ugh:

    I think what he means is that the traits are desirable, but the downside is that those traits also belong to people who aren't the most ideal long term partners. Flirting makes people feel attractive and desired, but those who flirt often are more likely to play the field.

    .

    I think someone referred to it as the "genetics jackpot" when a woman is able to have a baby with an alpha guy with "bad ass, masculine genes" and have it be raised by a beta male with "nice guy genes." Maybe it was Yail who said that. I can't remember. Or maybe I read it in Sperm Wars.
