Need To Pull? Find An Ugly Mate To Stand Next To.

Recommended Posts

Want to look beautiful? Stand next to an unattractive friend

Forget immaculate make-up or witty one-liners. The secret of seduction is as simple as standing next to your less attractive friend.

Studies show that our judgements of people vary according to the company they keep.

And if that company is less attractive, or dare we way it, ugly, the first person seems all the more appealing.

Anthony Little, of Stirling University, said: 'You get a bit of a contrast effect when you stand beside someone of the same sex.

'If your friend is unattractive that makes you relatively more attractive.'

On the other hand, exceptionally good-looking friends may cast you in a rather bad light and so should not be invited out on the town.

Those who might want to take heed of the advice include singers Lily Allen and Beth Ditto, both of whom are often photographed with Kate Moss, one of the most beautiful women in the world.

Other tips for enhancing appeal include surrounding yourself with lots of members of the opposite sex - the 'Hugh Hefner effect'.

The Playboy founder is not the first flush of youth but makes himself appear more desirable by constantly being photographed with buxom beauties.

Dr Little, a psychologist, told the British Science Festival: 'If you were just looking at Hugh Hefner's physical attractiveness you might not be that impressed with him.

'But as soon as you see him with beautiful women you might infer other traits, for instance, you might infer he is a multi-millionaire or charming or witty.

'He somehow becomes more attractive.'

The effect extends to the animal kingdom. When researchers placed toy female grouse near a male bird, other hens flocked to be near him.

And a study released last month found that single women view married men as better catches than bachelors.

It seems the fact that they already have someone's seal of approval makes them all the more desirable.

The US researchers said: 'This may be because an attached man has demonstrated his ability to commit and in some ways his qualities have already been "pre-screened" by another woman.

Need to pull go out with your ugly mate.

Yet more useful science.

Yes, I get all my science news from The Daily Mail these days as well. :rolleyes:

The result re: the grouse is the main thing there and quite surprising IMHO.

The main focus of the reporting is on the fluff he introduced it with (given he wasn't talking at a scholarly conference but a special event for kids and families and so on to promote science) which you've taken as the main point.

I stopped talking to the press years ago precisely because of this sort of reporting.

If Einstein published his work on relativity today the Mail would say "light moves really fast, says boffin".

And fill 90% of the article with comments about energy saving lightbulbs.

Old news this; always reckoned girls do this - the pretty one looks great in comparison to her plainer friend and the other one gets the mate of the guy who goes after the pretty one.

They're no daft, women.

The conclusion is clear. If you're looking for a little female company, go down to the pub and surround yourself with a crowd of inflatable women:

The women in the pub will be climbing over each other to get to you.

The trouble is that after a few beers they both look the same.

One thing worse than waking up next to an ugly woman is waking up next to an attractive one and the terrible realisation that you are the ugly one.
