We’ve all seen mismatched couples. That is, couples in which one partner (usually the woman) is vastly more attractive than the other. Such relationships are why the terms “trophy wife,” “sugar daddy,” and “sugar mama” were invented.  

In not-so-surprising news, a new study published in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin found that relationships in which the woman is more attractive than the man are more likely to fail than relationships involving couples with similar looks. Interestingly, the reverse (attractive men, less attractive women) was not true.

Sticking it out for the sake of children, money, society, etc. simply doesn’t cut it anymore.

Couples who find the time to have fun and play are generally happier. A University of Denver study supports this.

Howard Markman, a psychologist who co-directs the university's Center for Marital and Family Studies says "The more you invest in fun and friendship and being there for your partner, the happier the relationship will get over time."

As life takes over and we have increased responsibilities with work, home and children, time to have fun as a couple becomes infrequent.  However, foregoing that time together can have adverse consequences.

Keep in mind that men and women see things differently. Men get more out of participating in activities while women prefer a great conversation.

Unfortunately, many movies and television shows portray rural men as dim-witted hicks with nothing to offer smart, sophisticated women. For this reason, many country boys may hesitate to approach city gals, believing the women have no interest in men from small towns. However, this is rarely the case. Many women adore the qualities of the stereotypical country boy. Qualities such as...

Politeness, Chivalry

Country boys are polite and chivalrous. They don’t hesitate to open doors for women, pull out chairs, offer their jackets when the weather turns cold, or ensure a lady gets home safely. Country boys say please, thank you, and generally address strangers as sir or ma’am. Women who appreciate chivalry love men who are polite and respectful. In other words, country boys are a perfect match!

Male Mystique Makes Women Melt

The majority of today's men are more metrosexual than macho. While ladies do appreciate a guy who keeps his nails trimmed and his skin soft, that doesn't men fellas should be spending more on manicures and moisturizer than movie dates. The old school male mystique has seem to have gone by the wayside, but these tips can bring it back, and hopefully bring more romance into your life.

Macho, Macho Man

Women are turned on by strong men who will protect them and be in control. Dress like a man by wearing simple t-shirts and jeans that fit your body. Those sparkly Ed Hardy shirts are for Jon Gosselin and Jersey Shore. Own at least 2 custom fitted suits for special occasions and you'll really impress the ladies. And don't forget your gentlemanly gestures like opening doors and surprising her with flowers.

Speak Sparingly

An important ingredient of the male mystique is learning how to hold back. Talk in short sentences. Answer her question with a question or reply vaguely. Maintain heavy eye contact. It can be tricky to do all this without seeming like a creep or weirdo but it can be done and it works.

Initiate Intimacy

Another trick is to subtlely introduce intimacy. Again, holding back here is key or else you'll appear inappropriate. Playfully tap her arm, rub her shoulder, or anything innocent and sweet that causes physical contact. Whether she realizes it or not, she'll pick up your nonverbal cues and hopefully reciprocate.
