While most would assume that ladies would love to wind up with macho mate, today's tough economy might make wimps more irresistible to members of the opposite sex.
A study conducted by researchers from Southampton Solent University found that women tend to prefer gentle, sensitive men during times of economical turmoil. The small study asked 150 women to rate men's online dating profiles based whether a guy was dateable or more marriage-worthy. Overall, the women preferred the aforementioned "wimpy" men rather than the "macho" ones, who tend to take charge when it comes to relationships. However, one might argue that the use of the word "wimpy" is a little too extreme in describing these nice guys. So why did Daily Mail decided to label these traits as a sign of weakness?
Ask yourselves honestly ladies - if a man can show emotion, love deeply, and tune into his partner's emotions, does that really make him a wimp? While alpha males are great, they certainly don't always make the best husbands.
