Sorry, boys, it’s not just those things, though the uniforms and muscles do help. “Normal” guys love to write their appeal off as “the uniform,” or the fact that they’re usually in great shape.But there’s a reason the military men you meet, more so than other hot men in uniform (think firefighters, police officers, the UPS guy), are either in relationships, or don’t seem to have a lot of trouble meeting women. At the end of the day, most of these things are qualities any guy could bring to the table, if he really tried.Joost Leunissen, one of the study’s authors, remarked: “This provides evidence for the hypothesis that gender differences in inter-group conflict can have an evolutionary origin, as only males seem to benefit from displaying heroism.” Translation: despite having moved on from our cave phase, men still score points by hitting each other with rocks, while women are expected to swoon.Both genders clearly harbour something of a weakness for uniforms, as anyone scanning the shelves of the nation’s fancy dress shops or Ann Summers outlets will ascertain.“I got tired of regular bars with old women.” They admitted that the uniforms are a big part of the attraction. “The uniforms make them look one and a half times cuter than they actually are.” This is Japan’s shady “JK” or “high school dating” business.(“Joshi kosei” means “high school girl” in Japanese, and the English initials JK are universally used here to describe the practice.) Although some cafes like this are relatively innocent — those that employ high school girls must close by 10 p.m., which means the men aren’t too late getting home to their wives — there is a large part of this world that is not.
“We actually find regular bars uninteresting these days,” he said.
But they know what’s going on in the world, because it’s their job to know, and for many, it’s the reason they joined the military in the first place. Articles about, well, dating, often get more views and social media shares than stories about ISIS and conflict in the Ukraine.
Guys in the military are focused on what’s important, our national security, and helping the world as a whole become safer.
Although Airi, 18, is not a high school student, she wears her school uniform at a cafe in Tokyo because, she says, it makes her more popular with customers than when she wears her regular clothes.
