Women are hard-wired to find well-meaning sexist men MORE attractive because they think they will be protected and provided for, finds study

Women are more attracted to men who are sexist because they think they
are more willing to protect them, provide for them and commit to a relationship, scientists say.

Men who are considered to be sexist in a well-meaning way – for example
if they are chivalrous or think women need a man to protect them – may
be more attractive.

Even though women find these men patronising and can feel undermined
by them, they are more likely to want to couple up with them than with
men who don't give them special treatment.

Researchers say women may be hard-wired to think the benefits of being
with a kind but sexist man outweigh the downsides.

Getting enough attention is often an important aspect of a marriage relationship.  However, when the attention evolves to monitoring and stalking, then things can turn deadly fast.   :scared0005:

I think you are talking about a small subset of the cRaZy people
and not those who the article is talking about. Nowhere does the
study address stalkers.

They address men who sit when they pee and compare them to men
who stand when they pee. Women, even bitchy feminist types prefer
the standers.

Not surprising.  Women typically want men to solve their problems for them:

Women - PROUD!  STRONG!  INDEPENDENT!

Until things get the teensiest bit difficult.  If men ever stopped doing what we do, Civilization would last until the first oil change.

Yes, quite so.  I was referring to those with very narrow minded ideas on dating and being married.

It seems logical to assume that those that "panders" you will be looked at more favorably than those who don't (or stop doing so).  Being treated by someone favorably on a daily basis obviously is more preferable than someone who ignores you and takes you for granted.

I thought men were always supposed to leave the toilet bowl cover DOWN.    :chuckle:

This is why I prefer a lady who can do the same work as a man (within reason).

Well, Beel...do you believe the 'poll' ..

It may be true for a short while... Such guys are - in MY opinion most likely to divorce more than once

Men and women are different, FSUW (for the most part) know
that don't try to fight it and for the most part they enjoy being
a woman, and they enjoy being feminine.

I have been assigned the job of killing any pesky spiders
or bugs that come into our home. Any woman could do the
same but it's my job so bravely I squish them without
remorse and open any tricky jars that require extra torque
and manage to do so while keeping a stiff upper lip.

I'd agree with the article. I suppose I must be a "well-meaning sexist" if that means I dont expect a wife to change the oil and clear the drains or make the majority of the £, and in exchange I dont feel the need to do so much cleaning, ironing and other stuff I find tedious. Those are opinions I never hid. Never did me any harm, and never left me with a shortage of women. As long as you are not a boorish tosser about it, women are quite cool with that I always found.

Women who had big opinions about equality always had a rethink when I offered to show them where the engine oil or the drain rods were. In fact my wife had a soft tyre the other day, she wanted me to follow her to blow it up. I suggested she might be able to work an airline. Her reply was "why am I married?" I did the tyre. Goes both ways. I call that equality.

You seem to have been in numerous relationships/marriages that have eventually failed. Yet you are not one of those blokes described. I bet you are a whizz with a steam iron and a feather duster while campaigning for gender neutral toilets somewhere. So your opinion as quoted doesn't seem to hold water.  :chuckle:
I apologise.
And so he should.........

I expect you mean in a marriage both partners must compliment each other for a marriage to be successful!

As you maybe know, Russian women are experts in everything and critical about various things but when it comes to cars, computers, electrical and Legal matters...... then it's my responsibility to deal with it.

My mother teach me to be self sufficient but wife always know better. Of course when she comes home after work she is always happy to find lunch cooked.....but of course she is also an excellent cook, so on days off.... she does cook Russian food. Washing machine, hoovering and cleaning windows.... she is the expert!

Takes two to tango, as they say, so the orchestra can play well.  ;D

You put it better.

I never used to cook unless I had to. Now I do proper pizza from scratch and proper BBQ. Both go down very well.

Washing machine, hoovering and cleaning windows.... she is the expert!

She now does a lot of stuff in the business I dislike, like VAT and tedious paperwork stuff. So we got her a helper one day a week in the house so she's not doing drudgery so much. She has just dumped the third or fourth English girl because they dont clean properly; or to her standard. In September starts a one day a week Russian girl who we are more optimistic about because Russian girls *clean properly* apparently. And you can bollock them explain things to them in Russian.  :coffeeread:
I apologise.

Wifey is in Crimea currently,

But somehow I still have to use my mad-computer-skillz to fix MIL's wifi-modem now, despite me having zero idea how it works, what it looks like or what the password is.

Also , I must be able to control it telepathicly as my home network is in no way connected to MIL's modem.
