In dating, and in life, we’ve been conditioned to believe that nice guys finish last. In order to make it in the cold, harsh world men must be ruthless.
Not so, says a new German study. Women were invited to look at dating profile of a variety of men. The men who had a history of altruism were the most likely to be selected for relationships by women looking at the profiles.
Not surprisingly, the good looking and selfish guys still fared well for one night stands. But when it came to choosing a guy for a relationship, the nice guys finished first.
