Which not only makes for better sex but also means he treats you like a princess. Imagine you are both at a party – you look gorgeous, he looks, well, most definitely not gorgeous. The point is, if a man is going to cheat on you, it makes no difference if he looks like the Elephant Man or George Clooney.But hang on a minute, he is with you and other women are intrigued: he must have something special, they think. Playing away is more about the ability and desire to deceive you.I have always wondered how sane, pretty women manage to kiss a man who looks like a pig. We think they will cheat on us as soon as our back is turned. Back in my early 30s, after my then Italian fiancé ran off with my best friend I felt unattractive and frumpy. Just like a blind man learns to develop his other senses, the ugly man relies less on his looks and heightens his other traits.Yet for some reason we girls insist on believing that if he is a beast there is bound to be some kind of wonderful beauty lurking beneath his pockmarked face. Roger would stroke my hair and tell me I was the most beautiful woman he’d ever met.
Ugly men, according to research published this week, are a safe bet when it comes to love.Because being ugly may actually help you attract the opposite sex, scientists believe.They have found that having an 'unusual' appearance can be a good way to charm a mate.When an ugly man steps out with a decent looking woman, it greatly increases his value. When it comes to getting an illicit leg-over, it is a matter of personality not looks.Suddenly other women are looking at him as if he were a hot prospect. A single artist acquaintance pinched his cheek and said how lovely he was. Previous studies of animals such as birds and fish had found that members of the same species tended to find the same things attractive.It had been assumed, for example, that all peahens were attracted to peacocks with brightlycoloured, long tails.While your cheating antenna are up when you date a gorgeous man, the ugly one charms his way under your defences.I know of one ugly man who could smell a recent divorcée/infidelity victim from miles away.'If everyone is going after the most common characteristics, then someone who targets the rare ones, would have an advantage.' Dr Brooks, based at the University of New South Wales, in Sydney, said the phenomenon could be related to special proteins called MHC molecules, which are part of the immune system.The more diverse a selection of MHCs you inherit from your parents, the better equipped you are to fight off disease. Not only can women detect that difference, but they also tend to prefer the smell of men whose MHCs complement their own.
