10 Things Men Do That Mean They Don’t Love You
Humor is attractive to men and women — but not in the same way. The research shows women like men who make them laugh, and men like women who laugh at their jokes.
Women tend to prefer men who make them laugh, whereas men tend to prefer women who laugh at their jokes. Consistent with this, Robert Provine analyzed more than singles ads and found that women were more likely to describe their good humor appreciation ability whereas men were more likely to offer good humor production ability. Why is humor sexy? Funny people are smart, and smart is sexy.
Gil Greengross and Geoffrey Miller found in a sample of university students that general intelligence and verbal intelligence both predicted humor production ability writing captions for cartoons , which in turn predicted lifetime number of sexual partners a proxy of reproductive success.
They found, however, that males showed higher average levels of humor production ability, which is consistent with the sexual selection perspective.

As a result of the interviews, the researchers speculated that the best strategy would be to give a potential date the impression that in general you were hard to get and therefore a scarce resource worth having but really enthusiastic about him or her specifically.

Agreeable, conscientious people make better spouses and parents — but disagreeable, non-conscientious people have more sex partners. The former invest in quality, and it seems like the latter make up the difference in, well, volume. Looking to settle down?
Check if that person has their ducks in a row, is organized and easy to get along with. Nettle and Clegg reported that in a sample of people, men but not women with low levels of agreeableness and conscientiousness tended to have a higher number of sexual partners. It has also been found cross-culturally, across 10 world regions, that low levels of agreeableness and conscientiousness are related to higher levels of sexual promiscuity and relationship infidelity , so there may be reproductive benefits to those on the low end of these traits.
This can be taken to extremes: having someone try to kill you can actually make you more attracted to them. Those in the high-fear condition did show, for example, significantly more desire to kiss my confederate one of the key questions and wrote more romantic and sexual content into their stories. Looking at the details of these results, I found that the situation had generated, quite specifically, romantic attraction. By doing things that rekindle those exciting feelings, love can be restored :.

They tell guys that playing hard to get is the way to make a woman fall head over heels; that women prefer men who behave like jerks, with a touch of humor thrown into the mix. There is some truth to their claims: when we obtain what is hard to get, we appreciate it more. Sensing signs of love from a jerk may feel like more of an achievement than from a guy who constantly dotes on us or on any woman he lays his eyes on.
