Psychology draws from this tale for the personality construct “narcissism,” which in its preclinical form speaks to self-centeredness and a need for validation; its extreme form, narcissistic personality disorder, denotes a total disregard for other people’s feelings and a prickly inability to handle But narcissists aren’t just attractive to themselves.They are, at least superficially, attractive to other people; that’s why they’re overrepresented in fields where being at the center of attention is an asset, like entertainment, entrepreneurship, or politics. And as a new study of speed dating led by Emanuel Jauk of the University of Graz, in Austria, finds, people rate them as more attractive and moredateable. Why speed dating — isn’t that silly thing that only happens in romantic comedies?While no allure of “blog research” could convince me to embark upon this terrifying venture, a friend of mine, lovingly known as The Log, recently had the courage to sign up for a speed dating event that granted her the opportunity of meeting 15 eligible bachelors over the course of 2.5 hours.“That’s more dates than I have been on in the past 10 years! ” she told me when confronted by my bewildered stare.That said, when a coworker recently asked me if I wanted to sign up for speed dating, a form of organized dating that my “prehistoric” brain could actually comprehend, I figured I had nothing to lose (except for Marina’s respect, apparently.) A few clicks and later (that’s right, the chance of meeting the love of your life comes with a hefty price tag that can, apparently, buy you 5 months on Raya) I was officially registered for NY Minute Dating, a service that described itself as “the best speed dating NYC has to offer,” responsible for organizing “the most successful and talked-about speed dating and singles parties in town.” A video clip on their site showcased B-roll footage of enthusiastic singles immersed in blossoming bar romances.They all looked quite satisfied with life – who knew, maybe I was next!But in fact speed dating is a sweet way to study attraction: Even when you control conditions (as the researchers made sure men and women had no non-dating interactions), it allows for pretty genuine interaction between people.

I promised her not to judge, as long as she agreed to report back with a story. Let me preface this literary masterpiece by stating the following: I am not Marina.
I have neither the emotional, nor the mental, capacity, to Tinder (or Raya, or whatever else she’s into at the moment) ten guys simultaneously.
