Business Insider ^ | 08/14/2013 | MEGAN WILLETT

Posted on 08/14/2013 2:04:45 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

cience tells us that life is better if you're beautiful.

You're healthier, more persuasive, and people will just generally think you're smart and trustworthy.

But turns out, you don't have to hit the genetic lottery to become more attractive to the opposite sex.

Thanks to a slew of studies on sex and attraction, we found 12 grooming tips, attitude adjustments, and other fixes for both men and women that are proven to make you more appealing.

A study confirmed that a white and evenly spaced set of teeth make people seem more attractive.

The study, from researchers at the British universities of Leeds and Central Lancashire, found that teeth are "the human equivalent of a peacock’s tail," according to The Daily Mail.

They are a sign of health and good genetics that help select a mate.

Eating more fruits and vegetables is a natural way to make your skin look more attractive, a study from PLoS ONE showed.

Fruits and vegetables are loaded with antioxidants and plant-based pigments, which give skin a healthy hue.

Plus, the results are instant. Participants in the study had rosier cheeks and healthier looking skin with just an increase of one portion of fruit and vegetables a day.

and when the govt swat team guns you donw because they misread the address, or kill you defending your tomato plants they thought were pot, or you tried to save your dog that was contained in your own yard,

if they don’t shoot you in the face,

your corpse will be beautiful enough to have an open casket.

Cheer up, citizen.

This is for the men...
Guys need to brood a little more.

Brooding and swaggering men are much more attractive than men who are smiling, according to a study from the University of British Columbia. In fact, the women surveyed said happiness was the least attractive quality in a man.

But the study was based only on "gut reactions on carnal, sexual attraction," one of the study's co-authors told The Daily Mail, not whether the men would make a good boyfriend or husband.

The study could explain why some women are attracted to the "bad boy" persona.

Women are only interested in one thing - that big bulge in your pants. That's right - the bulge in your hip pocket.

The sign language version of that is to drive around in a Porsche / Audi / Mercedes / Bentley.

For certain women, yes. And as long as "certain" men are only interested in how a woman looks in a lacy thong, or how often she wants to "assume the position" (whatever that means for you, personally) this will always be the case.

Men are their own worst enemy.

Here's another few:

1. Lose 100 lbs.

2. Stop drooling when you first meet.

3. Don't brag about your room in your mother's basement even if you have a computer and are a master level internet game player.

4. Don't ask her to pick you up on your first date, just admit that you don't drive or have a car and will call a taxi.

5. Don't cry on her shoulder about the last relationship you had who happened to be living in Russia.......

6. Don't let her know that you are on anti-depressants.

7. Tell her you love animals but don't let on that you are allergic to cats and dogs and that your raise hampsters........

8. Don't tell her that you recently missed two weeks of work because you were in mourning over your goldfish dying.

9. And if you should be so lucky, when she asks you if you have any condoms, don't tell her you left the ketchup and mustard at home...........

For men, if all else fails, hang a one hundred dollar bill around your neck. In short, make it very well known that you have considerable monetary resources. Even if you have to lie about it. I hope that doesn't make me sound cynical.

p.s. My wife does have considerably more dough than me.

I appreciate Ann's sharp wit (though her lucidity has been called into question in the past year or so), but appearance-wise, she's not for me. Too many similarities to Tom Petty.

Yes, she bakes a lot of dough. And the dough has been rising since we’ve been married. Actually before. But that’s not why I married her.

Ann was once one of my conservative heroines. I even bought two of her books and thoroughly enjoyed them. But the woman has failed too many conservative tests for me, over the last few years. I'm afraid she's lost me for good.

She also needs to eat a few cheeseburgers and get a husband.

To: SeekAndFind; Revolting cat!

For decades now the culture has pushed the “bad boy” that women want to tame.

Also “street” savy people, cynics, postmoderns consider a smiling man to be a simpleton, a mark, a chump, a “punk”.

“Playaz” who “got game” have a coldblooded stare. Iceberg Slim wrote about getting called out in the 1940s and 1950s for smiling in front of his boss pimp.
