Women seeking a lifelong mate might do well to choose the guy a notch below them in the looks category.
New research reveals couples in which the wife is better looking than her husband are more positive and supportive than other match-ups.
But the role of physical attractiveness in well-established partnerships, such as marriage, is somewhat of a mystery.
The new study, published in the February issue of the , reveals looks continue to matter beyond that initial attraction, though in a different way.
Trust me, I’ve experienced my fair share of well-groomed idiots!
Case in point, the Rolex wearing marketing executive that asked me to take off my shoes before entering his Audi, or the sexy-tattooed artist that was completely self-absorbed and literally checked his Facebook while we were having sex!
Some portrayed the more handsome guy being altruistic, while others favored the less attractive guy.In their study, ladies opted for a less attractive fellow if he was generous over a hot-but-selfish guy. Female mate preference has evolved to where women are more choosey in what they look for in a partner who will potentially father their offspring, Farrally explains.
