Who knew lol?!

Men: "She's Hot, She Must Want Me!"

File this under “survival of the dorkiest.”

Finally, a study that explains the mystery of how guys like Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino manage to propagate their, uh, species.

It’s no secret that men are terrible at discerning if a woman is interested in them. Smile at a guy and he’s ready to take you home to meet his parents (or at least his bedroom). But, according to research in the journal Psychological Science, certain factors make men much more likely to think a woman is hot for him, even when she’s not. If you're super pretty, clearly you want him....

Yes, this confirms anecdotal evidence. We men can read more into a gesture from a woman than the woman intends. Women meanwhile do tend to underestimate male
