Explanation of the Post

Study shows that in nightlife some men and women who do not feel attractive enough choose disdainful hookups, thinking that disdainful hookups can make them look attractive (López de Aguileta et al., 2022). However, research has shown that girls having disdainful hookups in nightlife lower their attractiveness (Racionero-Plaza et  al.,  2021).  Moreover, those disdainful hookups negatively influence their physical and psychological health (Sabri & Granger, 2018).
