Looks like decoding what men want is easier than we thought. In a study featured on Redbook, researchers found that men find fertile-looking women attractive. Yes, subconsciously, men think you’re hot if you look like you can make babies.
Men were designed to look for key features in women. These features make women attractive because they are associated with good health and fertility.
But what does that really mean?
Humans are genetically modeled to flirt. Flirting results in sex and that leads to reproduction – so that was the idea behind. But what comes before flirting? Before flirting, one must be attracted towards your partner? Isn’t? Men get attracted to the physical traits of a woman, now there are certain traits that attract all men.
Science has proven men to be attracted to women with these 6 features. According to the data, here’s what it takes to be “attractive:”
A Wider Waist to Hips Ratio.
A ratio of 7:10 is particularly pleasing, apparently. The waist and hips are related to childbirth, making men think, those big hips would be great for delivering my baby! This one’s pretty obvious– men like small waists and big butts. I guess that would explain why waist-trainers and the Kardashians are trending.
A High Voice.
According to a study cited in the video, a high-pitched voice evokes youthfulness and signifies a small, feminine body, both of which are attractive to men. Let’s just say our high-pitched shrieks at the scandalous happenings on the Real Housewives is a sign of evolution at work.
Shiny, full, and long hair is very attractive. Again, it’s a sign of health and fertility. And thankfully, very fake-able with regular salon visits and blowouts. Remember, it’s for the future of the human race.
Well obviously, happy people are attractive people. But science has also proven the whiter the teeth, the better.
You may think that contouring, layers of eye shadow, and bold lips are making you more beautiful, but it turns out, the natural look is more appealing to men. The video says that men prefer women who use up to 40% fewer cosmetics. But it shouldn’t take science to tell you that the natural you, is the best you.
There’s a reason red is associated with lust. Scientists have proven that wearing red enhances attraction. In fact, they’ve found this phenomenon to hold true in other animals as well. Note to self: dry clean red dress for Saturday date night.
While science says these characteristics make women more desirable, nothing’s more attractive than a woman who knows she’s beautiful no matter what her body ratio is. Confidence is key. No ifs and buts.
