Men, it seems, are sadly predictable creatures. A new study suggests that males are physically attracted to women who are psychologically vulnerable—that is to say, immature, depressed, or unintelligent—-though that doesn't necessarily convert into a desire for a long-term relationship with them.
The researchers, from Texas-Austin University, studied 88 factors that made women appear more "exploitable" in the eyes of both men and women. Then, the researchers showed pictures of women that illustrated these characteristics to a sample of men, and asked them to rate how desirable they found them.
