Apparently, contrary to popular belief, research has shown that nice guys do get the girls.
What was the research based on? Studying mice, specifically the striped variety found in South Africa.
From studying the breeding strategies and roaming tendencies of said mice, they concluded that this was why men who say it with flowers are more likely to succeed with women than those who behave like cavemen.
I demand that my taxes are not spent on funding this type of 'research'!!!!
