Is your Perfect Man a Hunk or a Professor?
Do you go for the guys who have an aura of danger about them? Perhaps the Professor jingles your Gamma Beta Phi key. You may want that unique someone who combines both danger and intelligence. This test will help reveal which characteristics are important in your man. One research study indicates women look for the “Hunks” in life for short-and-sweet relationships. Nonetheless, when they look for a father for their children, the “Professor” becomes their focus. Interesting . . . women often preferred the “Hunks” for themselves and the “Professors” for their daughters. Come on, mom, you can’t have all of the fun.

What do the researchers say about preferences in choosing a mate? Do women really prefer men who are not vertically challenged? Researchers in Britain and Poland found that men who are fathers (they were chosen at least once) are taller than men who remain childless (Nature, January 2000). There is evidence that we are biased in favor of the big guys. If a shorter male is wealthy, terribly intelligent and/or a hunk, his stock goes up. See, we are not unreasonable.
Did you know that you might prefer a different man during ovulation than during your less fertile times? According to Professor David Perrett, St. Andrews University (UK), women appear to choose more masculine-looking men during ovulation. That changes after ovulation. Is Professor Perrett implying that we are programmed by evolution to have two moles? Interesting concept!
Now, you may choose the perfect male according to your unique specifications. Don’t you wish it were that simple in the real world?
