The term, “nice guys always finish last” isn’t necessarily true. We all look for that nice guy, and now researchers say nice guys and girls make better partners in general.
Researcher Bill Chopik explains, “People invest a lot in finding someone who’s compatible, but research says that may not be the end all be all. Instead, people may want to ask ‘Are they a nice person? Do they have a lot of anxiety?’ Those things matter way more than the fact that two people are introverts and end up together.”
The research also suggests that people should NOT focus on compatibility-focused apps to find that special someone. Ultimately, having a partner who is conscientious and nice lead to higher levels of relationship satisfaction.
Do you use apps that focus on compatibility? Do you use apps looking for that special someone?
