Where do your eyes go when you check out a beautiful woman? Whether you appreciate an hourglass figure, smoldering eyes, or humble breasts, these traits can help decipher your relationship style as well as hers. Below are a few clues on what works for you:
Eyes Studies have shown that a man who’s attracted by a woman’s eyes first might subconsciously also be thinking about babies too. Researchers believe that this focus on eye color can help serve as a simple paternity test. Think of it as an evolutionary tactic to ensure she’s continuing your family line and passing the color of your eyes to your offspring.
Breasts When men were shown pictures of breasts in five sizes ranging from small to extra large, researchers found that men who preferred larger breasts also had lax attitudes toward sex and favored short-term commitment, while men into smaller breasts were more likely to settle down. Researchers believe it’s because while almost all men think bigger breasts are attractive, committed guys place more emphasis on traits that are important in the long run (personality, parenting skills, etc.)
Curves Ah, the good old waist-hip ratio. Researchers tracking the eye-movements of men looking at photos of women found that the majority of men looked to the torso first when judging the attractiveness of a woman. Subconsciously, a slim waist with larger hips indicates to guys that the woman is less susceptible to disease and will likely have less difficulty conceiving.
Her Body Only It’s no surprised that if you’re more concerned with her shape than her face, you’re not thinking about settling down. While you don’t need research to tell you that one, a recent study did confirm that when it came to considering a woman for a short-term relationship, 51 percent of men checked out her shape; when told to consider her for a long-term stint, only 25 percent looked at her body first.
Nothing If your more concerned about the food than the hot waitress serving it, then congrats! That’s usually a sign you’re happy with your relationship (or maybe you’re just whipped.) According to a recent study, men who were shown pictures of an attractive woman and then asked to write an essay about their significant other actually suppressed thoughts about the photos because they were thinking about their woman.
