Nice Guys Get The Girl in the End (Or So Says Science)

#Relationships

A recent study by Dr Tim Phillips and colleagues from the University of Nottingham and Institute of Psychiatry at King's College in London, is suggesting that nice guys actually finish first when it comes to getting the girl.

Reportedly, as our ancestors' brain grew bigger, so did the need to choose mates who were both willing and able to be good, long-term parents. Dr Phillips thinks that this shows that in our evolutionary past, those with a stronger mate preference towards altruistic behaviour had sex more frequently with more altruistic people.

Dr Phillips and his fancy school are, of course, totally wrong. Nice guys only end up with a partner when they grow a spine, realize the futility of chasing after the nice girl and start dating real women, instead. Nice girls, the type that thinks the nice guy is a "good friend" but continues dating an endless supply of jerks, will always be just that: a wounded little girl with low self-esteem. Stay away.
