How attractiveness 'determines relationship success'Posted on: February 28, 2013 11:27:01
How attractive you are determines what kind of relationship you are likely to experience, according to new research.
People might claim that it is 'what is on the inside that counts' and that 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder', but researchers have found that men and women who are attractive can expect very different dating experiences.
Notre Dame University, who carried out the study, claimed their findings prove that attractive women are more likely to form exclusive relationships rather than purely sexual relations, whereas good looking blokes often do the complete opposite.
Extremely pretty female singletons were also found to be least likely to have sex on the first week when dating and also have a lower number of sexual partners.
"Presumably, this difference arises because more physically attractive women use their greater power in the partner market to control outcomes within their relationships," the researchers claimed.
For men, on the other hand, the results were completely different, with the study suggesting blokes who are easy on the eye to be more likely to have a higher number of partners.
Elizabeth McClintock, sociologist at the university, also dispelled the myth of men longing for a 'trophy wife' when looking into this intriguing issue.
"Obviously, this happens sometimes," she says, "But prior research has suggested that it often occurs in everyday partner selection among 'normal' people…noting that the woman's beauty and the man's status - education and income - increase and decrease together."
Of course, these are just the findings from one study and what defines attractiveness is all subjective.
A different US study, also released earlier in the month, discovered that singletons actually have a 'radar' to detect attraction between members of the opposite sex.
Researchers at Northwestern University found that hormone levels didn't alter when just one of the individuals found their date attractive, but when the feeling was mutual, the pair were found to have experienced a "bump" in testosterone.
