I come across this headline today on CNN.com. What a joke! Is this what we research in our world today? You’ve got to be kidding me. If you wanted to know what men were attracted too, then just look at the history of the entire world. Men like pretty women. Absolutely Shocking!
Men want Hot Women, study confirms
Science is confirming what most women know: When given the choice for a mate, men go for good looks.
In the study, participants were asked before the session to fill out a questionnaire about what they were looking for in a mate, listing such categories as wealth and status, family commitment, physical appearance, healthiness and attractiveness.
After the session, the researchers compared what the participants said they were looking for with the people they actually chose to ask for another date.
Men’s choices did not reflect their stated preferences, the researchers concluded. Instead, men appeared to base their decisions mostly on the women’s physical attractiveness.
The men also appeared to be much less choosy. Men tended to select nearly every woman above a certain minimum attractiveness threshold, Todd said.
Women’s actual choices, like men’s, did not reflect their stated preferences, but they made more discriminating choices, the researchers found.
