Powerful guys get the girls
Why is it that powerful guys can get attractive girls even if they're not so good looking themselves?
Apparently, many girls are attracted to the personality traits of a man who's got lots of power. It seems we're drawn to the Alpha Male because he puts across a certain air of confidence and status.
Writer and broadcaster Lowri Turner, writing in Grazia magazine, said: "It's amazing what a woman can overlook in a man, so long as he is powerful: a face like a toad ? David Mellor; hair the colour of institutional boiled carrots ? Robin Cook; a total lack of sex appeal and weird headgear ? Boris Johnson."
But yet these politicians seem to have no trouble attracting the ladies and many of them have been involved in scandalous affairs.
Ms Turner added that this is because: "Power confers confidence, even arrogance, on a man. And women are drawn to men of influence."
But another writer, Jan Masters, also writing in the magazine, disagrees. She said: "While it does seem more good-looking women are drawn to powerful men than vice versa ? I still don't buy that macho power per se is the love-drug that it's cracked up to be."
For her, it's all about "quiet confidence".
