The Secret to Looking Sexier Online
Apparently, guys who look happy are less attractive to women than guys who look brooding or proud or even ashamed, according to a new study published in the journalEmotion. The researchers showed women pictures of guys making a range of expressions in different photographs. The guys with big smiles were ranked as least attractive.
I hate even reporting on this, because I can’t freaking stand the miserable mantra “Nice guys finish last.” But here’s my take on it: I think a smile in a picture is a lot different than a smile in person. A guy who looks me in the eye and smiles often gives me butterflies. It’s not the same feeling as a dude who’s smiling in general in a photograph.
So don’t stop smiling, dudes. Just, in your Facebook or online dating profile picture, you might want to aim for hard guy over softie. Consider it the guy equivalent of the MySpace-esque down-the-cleavage shot. Yeah, you know the one.

My Model Mayhem* profile information is correct – I WILL NOT DO NUDES, so please respect that decision of mine. When I say I am very open to new ideas, I don’t mean in that regard (sorry!!). I do not mean to disrespect any photographers with that interest, because what they do is artistically beautiful; it is just outside the realm of my personal comfort level.

* To be fair, the statement about nudity must be from when Catherine opened her MM account (in Jan 2014) and never bothered to update, once she became a nude model, to reflect her current status. Her sexy alter ego appears to be ‘Cayte Waters’.
