What Boys Look For in Girls

513,529 views 1 week ago
We all want to be appreciated...but initial attraction isn't really based in reality. There's a really huge audience of very young women on YouTube, and I'm really worried about them basing their self-worth on whether they appeal to guys. That seems to be how the world is set up. I'm a dude, of course, so I'm basing this on what I've seen on YouTube and IRL, but I don't think I'm crazy.

I should have said in the video...this isn't meant to be relationship advice. There are lots of good people out there with whom to have relationships, but what they're "looking for" doesn't necessarily correspond with what they actually want or need. That "love at first sight" moment is pretty much the least interesting moment of a relationship (despite being one of the most exciting.)

The song at the end is Marilyn Hanson, which will be on my new album which is coming out...oh...less than a month from now? Exciting!

Hank and John EXPLAIN! Play

One of our favorite things to do is take a complicated issue and tease out the knot a little bit. By avoiding politics and taking a larger, top-down view, we try to tell a complete story much faster than cable news can even talk about an isolated event.

The Best of SciShow Play

Five videos from youtube.com/scishow that will give you an idea of the sort of stuff Hank does over there :-)
