Men in Company of Smiling Women Attracts Other Females
If you are a male and lack the ability to attract females, then simply get a happy-looking woman to accompany you, for a new study has found that men in the company of smiling women are likely to catch the fancy of other females.

However, the study also suggests that other men may view them as a threat.

According to psychologists, the copycat behaviour among women is because they do not have confidence in their own judgment.

"If a female has difficulty choosing the best male, she can help herself by seeing how rivals behave," the Mirror quoted Dr Benedict Jones, of Aberdeen University, as saying.

In the study, female volunteers aged about 24 rated pictures of young men's faces.

When they were shown a man next to a smiling woman, they upped their score by at least 15 per cent.

According to the paper, though such a phenomenon has already been seen among fish and birds, this research is the first evidence of such behaviour in humans.

The study has been published in the Biological Sciences journal.

Very interesting report on sexual behaviour. Now we know how to attract our counterparts in parties. What about the males; will be interesting to know how they get attracted, it is sheer attributes, looks or intelligence or a mixture of all. It will also be interesting to know what kind of personalities in men get attracted that to the 'smart looking successful corporate female executives whose number has seen an astounding rise in the last decade, many of them end up without a life partner.
