A new study reveals that women prefer one night stands with the men who have money, drive race cars and wear expensive accessories.

However, they are wearier of such men specially when it comes to choosing a husband, women generally find such men, lousy husbands.

The study also found that those who show off their money because they are filthy rich were rated more attractive by women looking for a short-term fling.

However, they were found unsuitable as a life-partner, who is more likely to have an affair and walk out on their kids.

The new research was conducted by the University of Michigan, United States, and surprisingly they found men to have the same thoughts about show-offs.

As per the scientists, men are more likely to display their wealth than women since they think it is a tradition as a “provider”.

It is thought to offer an evolutionary advantage by indicating their ability to look after a partner and “invest” in their children.

However, an experiment suggests that the brash types have inadvertently given themselves a bad name.

They are now thought to be constantly chasing their next sexual conquest and unlikely to share their wealth with their offspring.


Study leader Dr Daniel Kruger said that men with high mate value characteristics may be more likely to abandon relationships because they have greater opportunities, constraining their interest in and attractiveness for long-term partnerships.

Similar results have previously been shown with jewellery, clothing and homes. The findings are published in the journal Evolutionary Psychological Science.
