You’ve probably noticed that a lot of the popular guys can be really cocky at times. It may frustrate you that you’re a nice guy and yet that doesn’t seem to be valued or appreciated by the girls you want to date (even if they say they like nice guys). There’s a reason for it: human evolution. Yes, we’re answering that age old question of why a lot of women love jerks.
The female brain has been wired to look for certain traits in men. They especially want a guy who can provide and protect. In short, they want a powerful man. In the old days, he was the big, strong warrior who led the tribe in battle. Today, fortunately, a man can be powerful in other ways. It’s why rich old men get beautiful women.
This isn’t meant to be sexist, by the way. A woman who is powerful, strong, and independent still doesn’t want to date a loser! In fact, strong and beautiful ladies often want someone just as high value at their side.
The problem is that many teenage guys can only think of being powerful in terms of cockiness. So, they can come across as jerks. But, young women, when given a choice between someone who is cocky or passive, will almost always pick the jerk. It’s because the jerk is closer to the guy they really want to date: the confident, powerful male.
If you’re a nice guy reading this, it could be depressing. However, don’t expect the women around you to change for you. With millions of years of brain wiring influencing them, you’re the one who’ll have to change your ways if you want more dates. Tomorrow we’ll discuss how you can be a little more cocky. Yes, that’s our advice. Check back to see the details.
