It’s as if the ability to win a physical fight—to overpower another man—is part and parcel of who the bad boy is. Happy guys finish last, says new study on sexual attractiveness. I suppose if his personality wasn't as amazing as it is, I wouldn't be as attracted to him. I could also say that if he wasn't as muscular and strong I wouldn't be as attracted to him.Other research on sexual attraction clues us in a little further to what turns women on. I feel safe when I'm with him if we're walking around somewhere at night.

She insists, “I’m just not attracted to them.” Alexis is a smart woman, and she is also a nice person, even though her attitudes about short men are actually pretty patronizing and dismissive.
