Why men who drink are less likely to attract women

By M.Farouk Radwan, MSc.

What attracts women?

You might think that drinking might make you cooler, more sociable and braver but according to many studies the more you drink the more likely you are to repel women away.

Before you can understand the connection between drinking alcohol and pushing women away you first need to understand why women get attracted to certain men.

Most women, with very few exceptions, are biologically wired to favor the strong, dominant and confident man. In my previous article The kind of man women like i explained how the need to protect themselves and their offspring motivates women to look for the alpha male even if they weren't consciously aware of the kind of man they are looking for.

So many women would claim that they want to date a sensitive and caring man yet most of them end with cold and ruthless ones just because they unconsciously believe that they are strong and capable of protecting them. (see also Why do good women fall for bad men?)

In other words women are more attracted to manly men who poses strong masculine traits.

So what does all this have to do with Drinking Alcohol?

As you already know the hormone that is responsible for making men more manly is testosterone. Men with higher testosterone levels are more dominant, more confident and act more like alpha males.Now here is a line taken from Wikipedia that explains what alcohol does to testosterone:

"Both chronic and acute alcohol consumption have been shown in most but not all studies to inhibit testosterone production in the testes."

Most studies agree that alcohol lowers testosterone but the exact percentage drop isn't agreed upon. I have came across studies that said that men who drink everyday can have 40% less testosterone than those who don't.

Different studies have given different percentages but most of them agreed that men who drink have lower testosterone then those who don't (provided that all other factors are constant)

Of course each man is a different case and we do not all have an equal amount of testosterone but it's now evident that you become less of a man when you drink ( in some cases half the man you are)

Why men with low testosterone repel women?

Apart from the fact that muscle growth is reduced and fat percentage increases when testosterone drops there are much more serious factors that repel women when men become less manly.

Men with low testosterone become more needy, less dominant, more anxious and less confident. In my book The psychology of attraction i explained how these traits turn off most women who were designed to look for the strongest male available.

Yes alcohol might make you instantly braver and give you a better chance to socialize on a certain day but on the medium and long term your brain chemistry will change and you will slowly lose the traits that makes a man attractive to most women.
