3 Ways Reading Makes Guys Hotter, According to Science
I don't know about the rest of the country, but here in New Mexico dating apps are full of pics of guys posing with dead stuff. Fish, deer, hair band t-shirts, their hopes and dreams.
If guys really wanted to impress us, they'd be posing with books—at least according to science, because reading empirically makes guys hotter.
READING MAKES YOU NICER
Science shows us that women prefer compassionate, altruistic men. Forget the "might makes right" nonsense. What we really, really want are nice guys, who help people out.
Meanwhile, science also shows us that reading fiction makes you a more compassionate person.
I think this pretty much explains itself. So maybe instead of wasting money on more Muscle Milk and crossbows, you guys should go get a library card and check out some novels.
READING MAKES YOU FUNNIER
Let's do a little algebraic reasoning for a second.
A: Science tells us women are attracted to men who can make them laugh.
B: Research shows that funny people are smarter than people who aren't funny.
C: Science is clear: Reading makes you smarter.
If reading makes you smarter, and being smarter makes you funnier, and being funny gets you laid—dude. Just join a freakin' book club already.
READING MAKES YOU MORE SUCCESSFUL
Women are attracted to financially successful men, researchers tell us. And science is likewise clear that a great way to become more successful is to read more books. Well-read people make more money and report higher life-satisfaction than those who don't read, which translates into projecting more confidence.
