Sometimes young men and young women feel that they are too different from one another to really understand each other. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles has said:. All men and women on this earth are the offspring of God, spirit brothers and sisters. What a powerful idea! To foster such understanding, the New Era spoke to some young men and young women of various ages and from a number of different places regarding the things that puzzle them about the opposite sex. Here are some of their questions, as well as some of their responses.
In three separate studies, researchers discovered that men preferred women who seemed "responsive" to their needs, favoring them above women who were less supportive in initial encounters. Fine, but didn't they factor micro-miniskirts and thigh-high boots into this equation? While reading through the study I flipped to the back to see if the researchers were also offering a certain bridge for sale. Do men really prefer good girls over bad girls?
While you may be doing everything in your power to attract the opposite sex, it may surprise you to learn that some of your actions and behaviors can actually have the opposite effect. In fact, you may not even realize that you're acting in a way that drives men away when all you're really trying to do is draw them toward you. In order to take control of the situation and truly attract the right guys, we've dug up some of research as well as had The List writer and psychology professor Jeanne Croteau weigh in on what to avoid doing, and what to do instead. You may think that loading up on foundation, concealer, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, lipstick, and blush to name a few makes you look your most attractive, but it may surprise you to learn that piling on the makeup is not appealing to guys. In fact, a study in The Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology revealed that women tend to overestimate the amount of makeup that men find attractive, and as a result, many women end up applying way too much.
