Next time a man throws you an admiring glance, hes probably just heard the intelligent things youve been saying. Many women will find it hard to believe, but new research suggests men increasingly value intellect and character in a partner over a shapely figure. However, women now tend to be more interested in a mans looks than before, and less preoccupied by their wealth as they are able to depend on themselves financially.

I call bs on this.
Hell, I’ve got it made now!
Sorry Tamara, it isn’t so. The brainy fat chick ain’t going out.....
America is screwed. That ‘sexual fantasy with a black man’ thing could get 0bama re-elected. Add to that Sandra Fluke, Elizabeth Warren, Nancy Pelosi and female actresses employing scare tactics and evoking tears, tears and more tears aimed at garnering female votes and America is screwed.
Probably explains why marriage rates are down.
Individuals are different.
You can show 2 groups of women the same picture of normal good looking guy. If Group A women are told he is 6’4” they rate him a 10. If Group B is told he is 5’8” they rate him a 5. Same guy, same picture.
Sorry, but this is nonsense. What’s the use of having the intellect of Albert Einstein if they look like Helen Thomas or Sandra Fluke?
Written by a woman. Not buying it.
Every trash can has its lid. There is some one for everyone, practically.
That’s funny, I don’t care who you are.
She doesn’t have much of a brain, either.
Rich ugly guy....
I am.. I see it at Happy Hours, the gym etc.. women of my generation(20 somethings) are asking the men(attractive) out today. I see it all the time.
No, guys are not going to ask out a ugly woman but I believe what the article is implying is men may consider going out with that smart, confident 6/10 woman now instead of going after the 8+/10 woman before..
People say lots of things, often they say what they believe they’re supposed to say.
Then there’s reality.
And she is a nuclear physicist from MIT.
Reality is they often get what they are supposed to.
Ah, men still don’t need looks. I could have told them that wealth matters less. I see more and more couples where the man earns a fraction of what his wife makes. 20 years ago, I was the exception. Today, easily half. Especially in my circle, the doctor/doctor coupling isn’t nearly as common as it once was.
It’s in your genetic make-up to like ‘em healthy/pretty. :)
We used to have a FReeper, years and years ago who maintained that he was lonely and looking because he was only 5’6”. I found the notion entertaining if not hilarious.
Hmmm, just showed that picture to my (adult) daughter. The first thing she noticed that was that her pants went all the way up to her belly button. I’ve seen that picture posted for years, and I’ve never noticed.
My GF makes twice what I do..and I will never make what she makes. No care from either of us..and probably 1/2 the guys I know it is the same situation..maybe more.
But I disagree on the looks..women ARE being more picky today..women are placing much more emphasis on looks and good grooming.
Being 5’8” myself there is a height requirement with some women. I have been flat out told I was below the minimum by a few women. I thought it was there loss but it is still frustrating. Hey we all have standards. The ones with the height requirement are usually younger, after awhile the height requirement goes down.
Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. My best friend growing up married a woman with CP. She’s beautiful to him, and that’s all that counts.
W/O a doubt but I think the article was implying men will now lower their marriage standards just slightly. The fugly chicks are still screwed also
I just never had that problem. A few women growing up wouldn’t date me because they were taller than I was, but they were by far the minority. My own wife’s first words to me were, “You’re too short.” We’re now working on 22 years of marriage. She’s 6’, I’m 5’2”. The funny thing is, she’s not even the tallest woman I dated.
That's true but most beholders like em pretty..
Yes, it is bogus...look at Tom Cruise..5-5 as well as most Hollywood actors. Robert Downy Jr.is about the same height.
I'm 6-1 btw so I am not saying this..
I'll take your word on that, as I'm no longer young or dating. I could never be a pretty boy. I AM a secondary sexual characteristic. If I try to go clean shaven, I just look like Fred Flintstone. Even freshly shaven, my beard is so thick with coal black whiskers that I get that neato grey jaw and cheeks. I hated the androgynous 80's.
At my age now, my wife is happy if I keep the hair growing out of my ears in check.
I sat next to a really cute(hot) girl on a plane once, we talk for a long time. Really had a lot in common. She even gave me her number. When we stood up to get out she was about 4 inches shorter than me. I called her the next day to see we could get together, she said she wasn’t interested I was a little shorter than her “requirement”. I am 5’8” and don’t consider myself THAT short. She was really hot so I guess she makes the rules. Her loss.
The single best ladies man that I knew growing up was just barely taller than I am. At 5’4”, he was a lady killer par excel-lance . He got more women than my best bud who’s 6’3” and myself put together.
A statement that he values “character” could be translated into “morality”. He wants a woman who hasn’t slept with 10 other men, won’t cheat on him, is unlikely to have diseases but won’t tell him until he’s infected, doesn’t have illegitimate kids he is asked to give things to or trick him into fathering a child for which he will pay out the nose.
Valuing her “intellect” could easily mean he wants a woman who is smart enough for a good paying job.
That’s because it is BS.
By the way. Look how conservative JFK was:
“Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men.”
- John F. Kennedy
One of the hottest things women find today is 2-3 day beard stubble. My gf request I do not shave Saturday or Sunday...ok with me.
Not me but they love this look..
Women still value facial asthetics #1 over anything else.
10/10 face,unfit body>>>>>>average face/fit body>>>>>>>>>ugly face/body of a a god.
I guess I’m going to have to learn to trust you. Both daughter and spouse agreed that the guy in your pic pegged the hotness meter.
There are always a few of those. I don’t think I have ever been rejected by a woman shorter than I am though. Of course, there aren’t that many women shorter than I am either. I realized early that I like leggy blondes, so I pursued leggy blondes.
i also call BS.
Men admire the intelect of a woman smart enough to know she better not look old. smart enough to get plastic surgery.
The blond turned 10k into 20k. The redhead turns 10k into 21k.
The brunette turns 10k into 22k.
So which did the guy marry ?
the one with the biggest boobs.
I’m calling BS on that. If you truly love your wife, you won’t even notice as she gets old.
Don't get me wrong I love looking at 8.5+/10 but if I had the choice to marry a dumb as phuck, bat shiite 9/10 airhead versus a 5/6/10 smart, confident, strong, athletic/fit, best friend who shared interest was the same as mine(ok I just described my gf) well you know who I would marry.
