Women Prefer Girth Over Length [Study]

study nice guys dont always finish last

Researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya in Israel, and the University of Rochester published a study measuring how much influence “responsiveness”, which was defined in Newsweek as:

“… a characteristic “that may signal to potential partners that one understands, values, and supports important aspects of their self-concept and is willing to invest resources in the relationship.”

The scientists concluded that responsiveness (aka niceness) in women tends to attract men, but responsiveness in men will repel women. In other words, the study is saying that women don’t really dig nice guys as much as men dig nice women.
