Meet a guy at a party? Browsing through online dating profiles? You might not actually have to waste time going on a date with him to discover the sad fact that he’s self-absorbed. According to a new study, if his face is ridiculously symmetrical (i.e. he’s super hot and everything lines up perfectly) he is significantly more selfish than the average bear. Due to his biological blessings, he is less likely to cooperate with others, more likely to have his own interests at heart. Why? Because his beauty makes him too self-sufficient for the likes of you, peon. The same goes for symmetrically-faced ladies. Got it! Beautiful people are not really fun to date, unless you are also beautiful. Us plebeians should go “uglier” when given the option. But what if that “uglier” guy is also a selfish a**hole because he mistakenly thinks he’s hot? How do we spot him just by looking? He’s much more dangerous. Help us, science!

The love affair of Leonardo DiCaprio and Blake Lively has taken many twists and turns, but the strangest of all are reports that the “Gossip Girl” star reeled in the ladies’ man by following The Rules. Too young to remember The Rules? It’s a dating advice book published by two women in 1995 that prescribed 35 different “rules” for alluring, snagging, and domesticating the male species. The book advises a woman to never pay for herself on a date; never call him; rarely returns his calls; never accept a Saturday night date after Wednesday; end phone calls and dates first; and return one email for every four he sends. Some of the self-help wisdom contained therein is just obvious, such as reminding women that if you show a man your Pikachu on the first date he might not assume you’re looking for a serious relationship. But the rest of it is just a convoluted series of mind games with cult-like restrictions like “Don’t discuss the rules with your therapist” and “Do the rules, even if your friends and parents think it’s nuts.” The premise behind the book is that all men like “the chase,” so women need to make them work for it.
So, how did Blake use The Rules to supposedly snag her man? Keep reading »
