Another Reason the UK should go away...

#1
LONDON (AFP) - Women see masculine-looking men as more unsuitable long-term partners but men with more feminine features are seen as more committed and less likely to stray, researchers said Wednesday.

Scientists at the universities of Durham and St Andrews came to the conclusion by asking more than 400 British men and women to make judgments on character after looking at digitally-altered pictures of men's faces.

The web-based test asked participants to rate the face for traits such as dominance, ambition, wealth, faithfulness, commitment, parenting skills, and warmth.

Men with square jaws, larger noses and smaller eyes were classed as significantly more dominant, less faithful, worse parents and as having less warm personalities.

Those with finer facial features, fuller lips, wide eyes and thinner, more curved eyebrows on the other hand were viewed as a better bet for long-term relationships.

And healthier-looking faces, for example those with better complexions, were seen as more desirable in terms of all personality traits compared to those who looked unhealthy.

Older faces were also generally viewed more positively compared to younger ones.

The scientists said there was a "high amount of agreement" between women about what they see in terms of personality when seeing a man's face and they may well use their impression to decide whether or not to engage with him.

"That decision-making process all depends on what a woman is looking for in a relationship at that time of her life," said Lynda Boothroyd, from Durham Universitys Department of Psychology.

Her colleague, David Perrett from St Andrews, said: "Our results contradict claims that machismo denotes fitness and disease immunity. Masculinity may buy you dominance but not necessarily tip top physical condition.

"Instead women see a healthy guy as the source of wealth, and fit for family life."

The research is published in the latest edition of the journal "Personality and Individual Differences".

I don't think that problem is isolated to the UK. I've heard things like this in the US also. Maybe it's a good thing that they don't want jocks. For the most part they are just rejects.

That's all bullshit man. They will say that when they have to think about it but their pussies tell them to fuck a masculine guy, not a computer nerd.

They might say they want a compassionate man, but they still would fuck any Abercrombie Fitch model looking guy they see.

Wow, where I live thats anything but the case - but then again, a 1/3 of the population where I live have a drug problem so that might be why.

I don't see a problem wanting to have a relationship with someone who isn't a complete fucking idiot, but wanting a relationship with a guy who acts like a women is just fucking odd.

Who said computer geeks were sensitive to begin with?

Those "Emo" guys are just plain debacles.

Just do steroids and wear eyeliner and you can't go wrong.

In all reality noone knows what women really want because they don't even know.

As usual you tards totaly misunderstood the study.

Masculin > small eyes, big nose, they were showing them Jews not jocks.


and fine eyebrows and a thin nose and lips dont make you a nerd... it makes you English.

They are evolved chics who love evolved men.

The study is stupid anyway. They showed women faces and then asked them to rate them on things that are pretty much irrelevant to a person's face. It doesn't even make any sense. Plus everyone knows you can't ask a woman anything, they're slaves to their emotions and what they say they want is always the opposite of what they actually want.
