Women finally came to the insightful conclusion that everyone grows old and ugly, so we may as well find a man who loves us when our junk goes bad, and we can’t remember what we looked like at 25. Women need to hear it, see it and understand that we are appreciated.They don’t want to wonder where your affection lies and have to guess your true feelings.'If everyone is going after the most common characteristics, then someone who targets the rare ones, would have an advantage.' Dr Brooks, based at the University of New South Wales, in Sydney, said the phenomenon could be related to special proteins called MHC molecules, which are part of the immune system.The more diverse a selection of MHCs you inherit from your parents, the better equipped you are to fight off disease. Not only can women detect that difference, but they also tend to prefer the smell of men whose MHCs complement their own.This makes sense, according to Dr Brooks, because any children resulting from such a pairing would have more diverse MHCs.And the variety of MHC molecules has nothing to do with a man's or woman's appearance.Because being ugly may actually help you attract the opposite sex, scientists believe.
And while you're at it, throw away all those beautifying pills, potions and creams in the medicine cabinet and cancel your subscription to the gym.
Lead researcher Dr Rob Brooks said: 'Ugly individuals can sometimes do better than good-looking ones.' His conclusion is based on animal studies.
These showed that some prefer mates which the majority find unattractive, rather than always chasing the best-looking members of the opposite sex.
But at a certain point, this advice comes back, ringing truer than ever.
We've watched the evolution of our parents' relationships and our favorite celebrity breakups; we've experienced the beginning of our own slow demise.
