Or as we might put it, more research that has been done down the pub for centuries:
Forget witty one-liners – the secret of seduction could be as simple as standing next to an ugly friend.
Researchers have discovered that our judgements of people vary according to the company they keep – and if their companion is a plain Jane or a dull Dave, they seem far more appealing.
Well strike me down with a wet haddock, eh?
No one ever knew that until the scientists got on the case….
So *that’s* why I am never invited down the pub!
Only if that’s friend is of the same sex. If a guy is standing next to an ugly female friend, he’s not getting anything. If she’s hot as hell, he’ll do well. Preselection.
I think that piece of research came from the same source as this: http://bit.ly/2b4XS56 Epoch-defining stuff!
Conversely… even if you’re a dog, hanging out with Beyonce (at the very least) puts you in the market.
Pretty girls usually have the only ugly friend to act as a deflector shield.
Hence “I don’t fancy yours.”
This can’t possibly work, because everyone is beautiful.
