Feminine looking men are often ridiculed and joked about. But their days of anguish are over, because a recent research has discovered that women are most attracted to feminine men!
The study was carried out at the University of Aberdeen and consisted of 449 women who were shown many images of men’s faces; little did they know that these images had been manipulated: some men were given a more masculine look, while others were digitalized to look more feminine by raising arched eyebrows, changing jaws to be smaller and eyes to be larger.
Another factor was that half the images had men looking away from the camera, whereas the other half stared directly at it.
The women were asked to choose which men they would prefer for a long-term relationship. The results found that every 3 out of 4 women chose more feminine looking men and opted for the guys facing towards the camera.
The research was led by Dr. Ben Jones from the Face Research Laboratory. He explained that women perceive feminine men as honest, kind and good parents. So the results are logical – women find these sensitive and loving men attractive when asked to decide on a long-term relationship partner.
