Signalling arbitrage

When you see a person of your chosen sex leading an old lady across the road, they seem more attractive.

Why?

Because they are kind and therefore will be kind to you (and your offspring)?

Nah, no guarantee of that.

It’s because they have the extra resources to be so nice – and you could always do with some resources.

It’s the social equivalent of a Porsche, so it’s sexy – and funnily enough tryhards don’t bother mimicking it cause they don’t get the appeal.

Moral of the story: I am slowly turning into a pick up artist be nice to old ladies.
