New research suggests that a man's storytelling ability makes him more attractive to women. Researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and SUNY Buffalo conducted the studies, in which undergrad students read descriptions of both males and females and then rated their attractiveness.


Interestingly, female storytellers were not rated as more attractive. The research teams think that male storytellers might be more attractive as long-term partners because it reflects their ability to gain resources and achieve status via influence. That makes sense. However, that pool of storytellers could also include d-bags that brag and lie a lot, so it's not all good.
