why do single women like married men

Some women are attracted to married men, and a new study may have a psychology-based explanation for why. The
showed that when a man is desired by other women, his physical attractiveness is automatically boosted, suggestingб the ultimate sign of a manБs allure may be a wedding band. For the study, the team of international researchers from the U. K. and the U. S. recruited 49 female participants from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland to judge photographs of men both before and after they learned the manБs average rating from other women. The women were asked to rate 20 images of menБs faces and hands using a scale of 0-100 for Бnot at all attractiveБ to Бvery attractive. Б Photographs were of male volunteers from St. AndrewБs staff and student population. The women also rated a piece of abstract art to serve as a control. After their first round of ratings, theб women were shown what they were told was the average rating of the men from either Бsome ofБ or Бall ofБ the other female respondents and were then asked to rate the men again. in these slideshows Wearing a wedding band may be the ultimate chick magnet. Results showed that womenБs rating of a manБs facial attractiveness rose by an average of 13 percent after they learned about positive ratings from other women. Not only did the women rate the men higher after learning of their social rating, they also took less time to decide on a manБs attractiveness. It took participants an average of 6. 92 seconds to issue the first rating but an average of 4. 54 seconds to provide the second rating. The researchers suggest this trend may be due to a psychological process known as Бmate-copying. Б However,б lead study researcher Catherine Cross, a researcher in the school of psychology and neuroscience at St. Andrews University, told Newsweek thatб although the findings may show evidence of our tendency to follow a trend, this specific findingб does not describe how the women would act, only how they might think. б "We asked people to rate the attractiveness of images they saw on a screen," Cross told Newsweek. "We didnБt ask them to make decisions about whether or not they would approach someone with the intention of asking them out.


I wouldnБt want to speculate about how people make choices about pursuing relationships. " Humans are social creatures and the opinion of othersб is hardwired to matter to them. This stems from the importance of group inclusion for survival throughout evolution, Psychology Today reported. In some instances, making a decision that was not favored by the group could have meant death. Mate-choice copying is an extension of our psychological tendency to take other opinions into consideration when we make a decision, and this is not the first study to identify mate-choice copying in women. on this topic proposes that females tend to change the likelihood of choosing a potential mate based on the decision of other females and what other females agreeб to be desirable. In fact, one found that 90 percent of single women were interested in a man when they were told he was in a serious relationship,б but only 59 percent of women expressed interest in the same man when they were told he was single. Cross explained that while there may not be an advantage to specifically preferring a manб other women are attracted to, there is an advantage to using social information and the behavior and preferences of others to guide our own decisions. б "Information about the preferences of others might help us to choose safe places to live, good foods to eat, good career paths to pursue, or trustworthy people to associate with," said Cross. The reason behind mate copying does not seem to be ill-placed. Rather, as Cross told The Independent : БWomen appear to copy the mate preferences of other women but this might simply be because humans have a general tendency to be influenced by the opinions of others.

The reasons for this vary, from the outrageous and weird, to the illogical and silly. Here are some of the reasons women would do anything to bag a married man: Responsibility : Marriage comes with responsibilities. The man has mouths to feed and bills to pay. He has decisions to make and many more other responsibilities. As such, a married man is socialized to be responsible. He will not show up at your doorstep with only condoms, but will be thoughtful enough to get you some grocery, maybe milk, some sugar and bread for tea as he settles in. A married man knows that a woman needs to apply some lotion, do her nails, style her hair and once in a while, slip into a gorgeous dress. And he knows what a facial or French manicure is, after all, he lives with a woman. But God, single guys! These are the most clueless, needy, demanding and selfish species of men. Sexual healing: A married man has mastered the map of a woman s body. He knows every contour and how to navigate the pleasurable spots. Seduction is his second nature and he can make even the ugliest woman feel like she deserves the Miss Universe crown. And when it comes to bedminton, a married man knows when to play and foreplay, go slow, thrust, rev things up or idle. There is no way he s going to leave you high and dry. Besides, nothing beats the thrill of something illicit! The very fact that bedding a married man is frowned upon could trigger your hormones into a raging rush like a waterfall. Unlike the single guy who will invite you to his place, make you cook to look wifely, bore you with crap and expect you to perform judo in bed; the married man will give you that unexpected call, probably ask you to drop by at his office and then proceed do it with you in his office or in the car! Sparks! Spontaneity does magic when it comes to sex. Competition: Women are weird and cunning. They would date a married man just to prove to the other woman that, I can take him. The fact that a man who has another woman pursues her is exciting and makes her feel like a winner in a non-existent battle, because the wife probably does not even know you exist.


Men often fuel this superiority complex by lying to these women about their wives. Statements like, That one cannot cook, she is ugly and I only married her because my parents forced me, you are better in bed, blah, blah, blah are total balderdash. A man who rubbishes his wife to gain your favour is a fool. If he wants you, let him just say, I want you but I have a very beautiful and dutiful wife. Simple! The truth is the that 90 per cent of these married men will not leave their wives for you. If she was so pathetic, he wouldn t have married her in the first place, so stop expecting much. Just take your position and relax. Enjoy it while you can. Just because you are still young and supple does not make you better than the wife, if anything, respect her because she cleaned the guy and that is why you want him now. Loose strings attached: There is nothing like no strings attached. There will always be strings and they will always be attached if sex is involved. The strings might be loose, but they sure will be there. Talk of fewer ties, that is, you do not have to see him every day and he does not get to dictate how you live your life. Technically, you have plenty of time to hang out with your girls and generally do your stuff with minimal interference, unlike the wife who will have to ask for permission before she can visit her mother. In addition, you will be free of the single guy who will be calling every now and then with silly questions like, Baby uko wapi? Unado? Mko na nani? The married man is too busy either with work or family to monitor and grill you like the anti-terror police. This is not about whether it is morally wrong or right to date a married man. We have people with very good stepmothers who dated their married fathers, and we have others whose families were ruined by the other woman. It all depends on individuals and their intentions. At the end of the day, God gave us the gift of choice. Choose your path wisely. Facebook: Scophine Otieno
