It’s a good thing that Pete Davidson is a comedian. That means he has a sense of humor about the fact that his acting skills are never the first thing anyone wants to discuss.
Instead, everyone wants to know how Davidson keeps landing famous women. For example, he’s currently dating Kim Kardashian. Before that, he dated the iconic Kate Beckinsale and was briefly engaged to Ariana Grande. These are just a few of the famous women he has dated, and everyone who gets to talk to Davidson has one question: how does someone who looks like Davidson click with women who look like that?
To find out, we decided to see what a relationship expert and some of Davidson’s exes have to say. Just be warned: this might forever change how you look at this SNL funnyman!
Smart sense of humor
One of Davidson’s most attractive qualities is, unsurprisingly, his sense of humor. And the Daily Mail spoke to dating expert Amber Kelleher-Andrews about why his sense of humor is so attractive.
She dropped some surprising science, including that a study published in the Journal of Medical Sciences discovered that you can actually “laugh yourself into a healthier person.” Furthermore, she claimed that other studies found that laughter can boost our lifespans by a whopping 20%!
The expert pointed out that Davidson’s sense of humor makes him appear confident. And once they begin dating him, “Pete makes the ladies laugh and this lowers their levels of stress hormones, such as cortisol and adrenaline while concurrently raising their endorphins and dopamine.”
The ‘diamond in the trash’
Very occasionally, Davidson himself will try to explain what makes him so attractive. Of course, he does so in his usual self-deprecating way.
For example, Us Weekly reports what he told an audience about his surprising attractiveness. “I was trying to figure out how to explain myself to someone because I was doing an interview,” he said before mentioning a familiar experience: rummaging through the discount DVD bin. According to Davidson, you normally find crappy movies in there, such as Predator 2 and Shrek Forever After. Every now and then, though, you find something unexpected and awesome, such as Tropic Thunder.
“I’m Tropic Thunder. I’m the diamond in the trash. It’s a steal,” Davidson said. In other words, the actor seems to believe women approach him with lowered expectations and he surprises them. This likely goes along with his sense of humor: people come for the confidence and stick around because he makes them laugh so much.
A vulnerable soul
At one point, both Davidson and Emily Ratajkowski appeared together on the Late Night with Seth Meyers. As reported by Vanity Fair, she went out of her way to mention Davidson’s vulnerability as part of his great qualities.
For the Daily Mail, their relationship guru Amber Kelleher-Andrews agreed with this assessment. She points out that lots of comedians just “aren’t fun to be around” when they are offstage. “’Pete, on the other hand, wears his heart on his sleeve. He has been very open and candid about his difficult past and because of this transparency women are drawn to his innocence.’”
That “difficult past” includes the death of his firefighter father during the 9/11 terror attack as well as Davidson’s BPD diagnosis. According to Kelleher-Andrews, women “want to “help” him or “fix” him. It is his cute puppy dog demeanor that gives him a genuine persona making him more relatable. Pete is what I like to call “comfortably charming.”
Intentionally or not, Davidson seems to have it figured out: while other men fear showing any signs of weakness or vulnerability, he has discovered the power of wearing “his heart on his sleeve.”
His crazy circle
Ever hear the phrase “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know?” Amber Kelleher-Andrews explained to the Daily Mail that this may be working in Davidson’s favor when it comes to attracting beautiful women.
She believes that many women are naturally attracted to men who are on good terms with famous celebrities. And by being Saturday Night Live, Davidson became one of what she called “Hollywood’s golden boys.”
And Davidson wouldn’t have such a famous circle if he wasn’t good at his job. “Single men who have reached mega success in their careers tend to be more attractive than those who have not,” she explained. “Hollywood stardom is even more rare, and Pete Davidson has achieved both.”
Even the occasional celebrity beef may help boost Davidson’s status. For example, Kanye West has been fuming about the comedian since Kim Kardashian began dating Davidson. Kanye included Davidson and basically threatened him in the song “Eazy.” Over on Twitter, Jessica Huseman said it best: “You know i just feel like if you are taking shots at Pete Davidson, Pete Davidson has already won.”
Instead of taking Davidson down a peg, Kanye just increased the comedian’s power and mystique!
The idea that women prefer tall men has been turned into countless memes. And it has also led to some of the most toxic men on Earth thinking the only reason they can’t find a girlfriend is because they are not over six feet tall.
As for Davidson, he stands at a confident 6’3″. And Amber Kelleher-Andrews told the Daily Mail how and why this height works in his favor. According to her, “studies show that attraction to taller partners is in our DNA.” She goes on to explain that, for better or for worse, taller men are usually chosen for competitive jobs, meaning they have more power and influence.
‘We naturally correlate financial success with ‘greatness’ and ‘dominance,’” she said. “When it comes to the birds and the bees, taller men have the advantage,” and she refers to Davidson’s own 6’3″ stature marking him as an “alpha male.”
You can simply look at Davidson and tell that he is very tall. However, people can’t help but be curious if other parts of Davidson might be “tall” as well, contributing to the actor’s so-called “Big D*** Energy” and ability to land rich and famous women.
Most of the women Davidson has dated didn’t kiss and tell, especially about his penis size. But former fiancee Ariana Grande came pretty close. In her “Thank U, Next” music video, she re-enacts part of the Mean Girls movie by creating her own “burn book” featuring details about all of her exes.
Of course, there was a page in it dedicated to Pete Davidson. And one word, written in huge, bold letters dominated the page: “HUGE.” We’ll leave it to you to figure out which part of Davidson she was referring to and whether that helps him secure some of the most beautiful women in the world!
