Case in point: Research on mate selection finds that for straight women, a sense of self-assuredness is one of the most attractive characteristic a man can possess, according to Gad Saad, a behavioral science professor at Concordia University in Montreal.
Somewhat relatedly, there’s also some research that a taken man — i.e., a guy permanently on a hot streak — is inherently more attractive to women.
(A hot streak recognized by both the church and courthouse.)So you’re not just imagining it — when you’re hot, you’re hot.
Unfortunately, the same is true when you’re in the throes of a dry spell.
The desperation just seems to cling to you — it, too, cascading (this time, though, in the exact wrong direction).
