Researchers found that the more attractive the woman was to the guy, the more likely he was to overestimate her interest in him, MSNBC reported.
And it turns out the less attractive men were more likely to think beautiful women were hot for them. But the more attractive guys tended to have a more realistic assessment.
Believe it or not, this all probably makes sense from an evolutionary perspective, scientists say.
Attractiveness is linked to fertility, so if guys keep hitting on hot women, they're bound to score occasionally and father sons who act the same way. Those attractive men don't have to try as hard. （点击MSNBC网站查看原文）
