Think back to when you were in your 20s. Would you want your current partner to have the same personality traits and physical characteristics you desired then? For most, the answer is probably not. This is because the things people find attractive tend to evolve as they age.
While the things you find attractive are subjective, there are general patterns found within each gender and age demographics. What men find most attractive about women can differ from what women find most attractive about men. Here’s a look at what some researchers discovered when they started looking into this theory.
There has been an ongoing debate about how similar or different romantic preferences are for men and women. To get some answers, scientists decided to look into this concept and find the differences among a broad market.
The study was published in the journal Plos One and takes into account three concepts: aesthetics, personality, and resource. Over 7,000 Australians between the ages of 18 and 65 were surveyed online. The age range gives researchers a better idea of how patterns differ across ages.
