Are woman nicer to attractive men?
Average-looking guys, if you mess around your beloved will have you out the door. On the other hand, good-looking chaps can rest easy, because ladies will put up with loads before they kick you out. We are not saying this.
This is according to a new university study into what women will put up with when it comes to their blokes. It turns out women are likely to put up with misbehaviour from a man if he looks like (Hollywood actor) Ryan Gosling, according to a paper by Jeremy Gibson and Jonathan Gore of Eastern Kentucky University, US.
They discovered a woman’s view of how law-abiding a man is can be influenced by how handsome he is. ‘First impressions’ are a popular field of study because of their role in forming relationships, but it is often based on physical appearance and adherence to social norms.
Gibson and Gore studied how levels of attractiveness and conforming to social norms influenced 170 female college student perceptions of men. Two male faces — one attractive, the other not — but bearing similar features, were paired in two written scenarios. Better looking people can get away with more, the survey stunningly reveals.
“The unattractive male is tolerated up to a point; his unattractiveness is okay until he misbehaves,” said Gibson. The halo and devil effect often comes into play when people view others’ profiles on online dating sites. So, unattractive men who provide unusual or alarming information in their profiles may not receive a second glance from women.
