SCIENCE: Single Men Smell Bad . . . and Women Are Into It

Here’s yet another reason why it’s rough being a single woman:  Single men STINK.  And not metaphorically.  They literally smell terrible.  But evolution has trained you to think that’s a GOOD thing.

A new study out of Australia found that single men naturally smell worse than men who are in relationships.

And it’s not because single men have worse hygiene.  I mean, they probably DO, but that’s not the reason.  It’s because single men produce more testosterone, which leads to a nastier body odor.

But it’s not holding them back from dating.  The women in the study smelled a bunch of single men’s shirts and married men’s shirts . . . and even though the married men’s smelled better, the women were more attracted to the single men’s.

The researchers say this shows women have evolved a way to “sniff out” single men . . . so they’re not wasting their time on someone who’s unavailable.
