    From David Buss' Evolutionary Psychology:

    "In one study 109 college women rated how upset they would be if a man they did not know, whose occupational status varied from low to high, persisted in asking them out on a date despite their repeated refusals. On a seven-point scale, women would be most upset by persistent advances from construction workers (4.04), garbage collectors (4.32), cleaning men (4.19), and gas station attendants (4.13), and least upset by persistent advances by premedical students (2.65), graduate students (2.80), or successful rock stars (2.71)."

    Ok, ok, perhaps the title of this thread is just my interpretation, but so be it.

    Pre-meds??? Not even meds or actual MD's?? Maybe I should just stay a pre-med forever.

    Interesting. Actual MDs are far more detestable than garbage collectors i hear.
