An unlucky-in-love radio producer has revealed why women are looking for a different type of man in 2021.
While ‘bad boys’ have historically dominated the dating scene, ‘perennially single’ Jana Hocking says ‘good guys’ are now in as women search for safety and security in an increasingly uncertain world.
The 36-year-old, who works at Sydney’s Triple M station, argues it is human nature to crave the ‘compassion, dedication and kindness’ offered by a trustworthy and reliable partner.
And as the chaos of the pandemic continues, the self-professed ‘collector of kind-of-boyfriends’ believes an increasing number of women will ditch traditional ‘bad boys’ for something entirely different.

In a column for news.com.au, Ms Hocking said she experienced an epiphany about her dating preferences during a recent visit to the emergency room.
Suffering from chronic pain that left her writhing in agony, she was treated by a doctor who dosed her with morphine – but it was his ‘kindhearted’ approach that left a lasting impact.
‘As the nurse set me up, the doctor held my hand, offered nothing but kind words, and tried to keep me distracted from the pain,’ she wrote.

She said the doctor stayed by her side as she waited for the medication to kick in, an ‘incredibly vulnerable moment’ that left her with a ‘whopping big crush’.
Ms Hocking said the care she received was a massive ‘turn on’.
‘Seriously, is there anything sexier than a bloke coming to your rescue?’ she added.

Ms Hocking said the encounter transformed how she feels about stereotypically ‘nice’ men.
She urged others to draw on her experience to change their attitude and give ‘good guys’ a chance.
‘Let’s look out for the bloke that helps someone lift a heavy item into their car, or picks up your flying tampon next time you stack it at the supermarket and your handbag items go everywhere,’ she wrote.
