New Study says Women are happier when their partner is less attractive than they are

If you are a woman and your partner is less attractive than you are, that may mean you are happier according to a new scientific study that was brought to light this week by Maxim. Yeah, you have seen it. The lady whose a total knockout and the guy who looks like a McLovin from ‘Superbad’. This does make sense, but it looks like something that guys are not supposed to be totally aware of.

In an HuffPo article covering the same topic in 2014, Verena von Pfetten dished the secrets of the whole scneario on why this dynamic exists. 

These high-school hotties are used to having the sort of unadulterated, fawning adoration that the symmetrically blessed always get in high-school, but the problem is that it doesn’t do them any good. In fact, it’s fair to say that it categorically does them harm. Am I making a sweeping generalization? No doubt. Can the same argument be used against women? Sometimes. But I find that women are much more inclined to date with their emotions – to pick a man that is funny, comforting, kind, and generous – and they’ll often pick one or all of those traits over his looks.

Wait, I am FUNNY, COMFORTING, KIND, and GENEROUS?! Oh no, this can’t be!
