It is a popular belief that woman loves bad boys, but the new British study suggests that the ladies would rather choose a fine and good man instead of the handsome one.
Women were shown the pictures along with the story of how they behave in certain situations, for example when passing by a homeless person. Some men pretended to be looking at their phone, while the others bought them a sandwich. After that, the ladies chose which men they would most rather date.
The most desirable were nice young men who showed empathy towards their surrounding. Scientists are not surprised, because when woman recognize the goodness in a man, they immediately connect it with their behavior towards her. So, if he's good for others, he will certainly be careful and attentive towards his partner too, treat her with respect, and he has all the prerequisites to be a good father.
The prejudice that woman loves bad boys has been explained by the British researchers with the fact that they need some time to realize who they are dealing with. So, good guys don't have to play tough, because their kindness, in the long run, will make them score more points.
