    Grin Why do women fall for the most horrible of men?

    He may be hurtful, but ladies just love a man who's flirtful

    By DAVID DERBYSHIRE

    It's always been a mystery to the nice guys out there: Why do women fall for the most horrible of men?

    Now psychologists believe they have discovered why.

    They say a man's talent for flirting can cancel out his more anti-social traits.

    Women will apparently overlook even the nastiest of tempers if a fellow has a glint in his eye.

    The findings could help to explain why chef Marco Pierre White has so many female fans, despite his surliness, and why grumpy rock star Liam Gallagher is never short of admirers.

    Psychologist Dr Andrew Clark, who led the study at Bristol University said: "Anti-social men can make up a lot of ground by just being flirtatious."

    His study tested the effects of flirting on 27 women.

    They were asked to rank animated images of men's faces in order of attractiveness and how flirty they were.

    "We found that the two coincided - the most flirtatious faces were perceived as being the most attractive," said Dr Clark.

    The faces were then paired up with a series of anti-social and 'pro-social' statements - such as 'Old people bore me' or 'I really enjoy helping old people' - and shown to the women again.

    When looking at the 'good guys', the women paid little attention to how flirtatious the men were when deciding who was most attractive.

    But when shown the anti-social faces, flirtatiousness mattered once more.

    In fact, the 'bad' flirty men were judged almost as attractive as the nicest flirty men, Dr Clark's team found.

    He told New Scientist magazine that a flirtatious man showed vigour and social confidence - clues that he might have good genes.

    "I don't think women like bastards," he said.

    "I think antisocial men who behave flirtatiously are either fooling women into thinking they are not so bad, or they're actually demonstrating that they are not so bad."

    I have noticed the effect that flirtatious men have on women as well. I am not happy with studies that are conducted on such a small group. Nevertheless I agree with the finding.

    I think that these modern so-called "social psychology" studies are too sloppy to be taken seriously, in general. :p But nevertheless this was fun, and so true

    If you want to sound intellectual in Germany, just make some shit up and say it is from a study from th US or the British, and everyone will believe it

    Yeah 'flirtatious' doesn't sound like a very scientific term to me

    Most if not all women are like this. Never trust what they say but what they do.

    I had a relationship with a more sensitive male-type. And he was a failure. Before that, I had a relatioonship with a more "macho"-like one. And he also was a failure. eyes:

    I generally dont like too flirt-active males, because they tend to be disloyal...

    Women are so fickle. I don't think any guy should take this seriously, and try to be all 'tough' in order to woo them. All I know is that a good sense of humor is very important. I'm also pretty sure that women don't like a-holes, even though they may say they are turned on by them initially. I would say just be yourself and respectable to any woman and things should turn out all right.

    I'm a flirtatious guy, yet at the same time an honest and loyal nice guy, yet it never works out either. As soon as they're in trouble and see how caring I am, and how much I worry about them, as well as how much our relationship means to me, I get dumped. The few times that I've been an absolute jerk to girls, they still wanted me weeks and months later - and me being mean enough when I'm not interested but flirtatious and sweet at the same time when I am interested makes the ones I'm not interested in fall in love with me. So basically, the ones that I'm not interested in condemn me for being "too much of an a-hole", and the ones that I'm interested in, after we were together, condemn me for being "too nice". But maybe I've just got a magnet stuck to my backside for always choosing the most lying, manipulative and disloyal &#!$&-es. eyes:
