Smiling girl meet brooding guy

Sexy guys are brooding guys. You want to get the girl? Brood more. According to a new study from American Psychological Association journal Emotion, women think happy men are less sexually attractive. Instead, they dig the guy who shows pride or a bit of shame according to the Canadian researchers.

“Men who smile were considered fairly unattractive by women,” said Jessica Tracy, a University of British Columbia psychology professor who led the study. “So to the extent that men think that smiling is a good thing to do if they want to be found sexually attractive, our findings suggest that’s not the case.”

And sexy women are smiling women. You want to get the guy? Ladies, smile more. “Women who smile are absolutely very attractive. That was by far the most attractive expression women showed,” Tracy continued.

She went on to suggest an explanation: “Women are attracted to guys like James Dean, Edward the vampire. The guys who are flawed, but who know it and are tortured by it.”

Keep in mind this study was limited to initial sexual attraction. “When people want a long-term relationship they take much more into account than sexual attractiveness. How nice a person is, is a big thing,” Tracy concluded.
