Good Guys Get Lucky

This just in, from the As-If-You-Needed-Any-More-Reasons Department: The more you do good deeds, the more you’ll do the dirty deed.

It’s true! So proclaims a study led by a Nipissing University psychologist. According to the research, altruistic people – those who frequently help others, give blood and donate to charity – not only are getting some, they’re actually getting more.

Isn’t it logical? A date who is overly generous to others is bound to be a ton of fun between the sheets. But if you’d rather take the long view, consider this: A selfless partner will most certainly make a superb baby daddy.

So, as the university’s news release says: “If you want to get a little, you should trying giving a little.” I much prefer that catchy tagline to the decidedly unsexy title of the published study: “Altruism Predicts Mating Success in Humans.” Now, that’s deflating.

  2. Very unselfish of you, Steve!
