Having a Girlfriend Makes a Man More Attractive. Why?

If you’re a man struggling to find a female partner, here’s some advice for you, at least from companies that sell this service: for a night, hire a professional wing woman that could help you ease the conversations with prospective dates. There’s a hidden advantage to having a female companion, however, and it’s something deeply rooted in our minds.

Women seeking romantic partners seem to prefer men already chosen by another lady. It’s a notion ingrained in pop psychology, but actually based on the scientific hypothesis that heterosexual women practice “mate choice copying.” That is, females save time and energy finding a worthy mate by selecting one previously picked by others.

Researchers have documented mate choice copying in animals from rodents to birds to fish. But whether humans do it is more ambiguous.

What if it were a superfat, ugly guy with bad hygiene who had a girlfriend? Sorry but simple theories can't explain a complex, layered universe. People love this stuff because it allows people to be intellectually lazy while feeling confident like they know something. If you're born Year of the Tiger (for example), it says a lot about you. If you have good or bad genetics, it matters. If you're born in the Congo or Trump Tower, it matters.
