In fact, it feels like the male population is entirely fuckboys sometimes.But, as much as fuckboys are a nuisance to society, it’s pretty entertaining to deal with them, especially if you know off the bat exactly what their game is.We Sk8 is a perfect example of a rapper making it happen in the internet era.

Psychologists at the University of Buffalo, California Lutheran University and University of Texas, Austin, broke their research into two parts.

First, 105 men were asked to rank the merits of women who had out- or under-performed them in an intelligence test as a prospective romantic partner.

Unsurprisingly, he found that handsome men were more likely to be chosen for a date than less handsome men.

But women didn’t shoot down every unattractive man.

“He knew what I did for a living, because I listed it on my profile.

But he made a comment about something in my field, and I responded with some information from a research paper I had just published,” she told me.

However, the trend was reversed in the second part of the test, where the men were given an intelligence test and then informed that they were about to actually meet a woman who had either performed better or worse than them on the same test.

In this scenario, the researchers noted that the men who had been told they were about to meet a more intelligent woman "distanced themselves more from her, tended to rate her as less attractive, and showed less desire to exchange contact information or plan a date with her." • If men are honest, do they really prize intelligence over looks?

Instead, it's the findings of a new study, which suggests that men state their theoretical preference for intelligent women only to then change their minds in the cold light of the dating arena.
