Competing against other guys for woman dating online dating associations
Women didn't necessarily find the cocky men more attractive initially.However, when men were given the opportunity to pit their profile against someone else’s, they were less willing to compete against cocky guys, while cocky guys were more willing to compete against others.
However, it’s always good to back up hypotheses with facts, and that’s what Jon Millward did with this experiment, posted on his eponymous blog.Women typically don't want to date men who are 5-8 years older. If I were you, I would dig a big pit and cover it with leaves and sticks and stuff.Yes, you might have some more interesting stories, and experiences than a guy 10 years younger, but you'll also be too old for her. Put a sign that reads, "young, naked, dancing women, this way." We, wanting to see these women, will all fall into the pit, and poof, problem is resolved.“After their confidence was measured, participants wrote dating profiles, which were rated by members of the opposite sex,” Mr Murphy said.“We found that, on average, overconfident people came across as a blend of highly desirable confidence and highly undesirable arrogance.” A key issue appeared to be whether there was competition for their romantic target.
