Try being more direct: A new German study suggests that exhibiting narcissistic traits may help you score. When ranking men on their “mate appeal,” women labelled egomaniacs as more attractive than less-self-absorbed stand-ins. “Narcissists are outgoing and socially bold in their interactions with women,” says study co-author Dr Michael Dufner. This selfassurance attracts immediate attention. But you don’t have to ditch your nice-guy persona, says Dr Dufner. Just borrow a bit of confidence from these men and don’t be afraid to make the first move.
