Factors in the human mating game show that when women desire a fling they prefer hunkier men and when they want to settle down they prefer the geeky ones. The latter are thought to be reliable to start a family.

"When a man has secured a mate, the potential cost of being discovered may increase his choosiness regarding short-term partners relative to unpartnered men, who can better increase their short-term mating success by relaxing their standards," wrote the study's authors.
