Interesting research on what attracts some women to certain men.

Female Attraction

A recent study of what women find attractive in men has led to some interesting conclusions and even some that clearly contradict the findings of previous studies done on attractiveness. I can see the mens ears pricked up and ready to read further already. An article highlighting the study was posted on the National Geographic site here.

This seems to hold out some hope for a larger portion of the male population. After all there is not too much you can do about the shape of your face, its either masculine or its not. Fortunately, according to this study, the masculinity of ones face is not the deciding factor but the color seems to play a larger role. This would seem to make it rather simple for a man to become more attractive to the opposite sex, especially if pale skin is his weak point:

Eat your fruit and vegetables regularly. (I can't venture a guess as to how long it would take to see the difference in skin colour but don’t expect a change over night. Everyone should do this anyway just for the general health benefit.

Get more exercise. From personal experience, and no I don’t have pale skin, the results of this can occur in a relatively short space of time. This is another one for the masses irrespective if they are seeking a mate or not.

The short cut to success here is, get a tan. Whether its the good old traditional method of lying in the sun, that will give a more reddish glow, or the tan in a can method than can have the tendency of causing a more yellow tinge, this method will get you from pale zero to rosy hero in no time.

There always has to be someone that insists on throwing a spanner in the works though. In this case it is Laura Dane from the Douglas College in British Columbia, Canada. She says that according to her studies it is not mere physical good looks that are the determining factors for women looking for partners. Women are looking for signs that the man is able to look after her well, a good provider, financially stable. So the masculine features could serve as an indicator to these things almost like seeing a man in a suit versus a man in torn denims and a t-shirt.

So where does this leave us. Well I would like to believe there is a little truth in both of these. The truth is that there are different strokes for different folks. What one person finds attractive can be totally different to what another finds attractive. Who knows maybe there are some women that like pale skin and don’t care much for money. If you are a guy looking to be more attractive then play it safe, either have a heap of cash or change your skin tone. Better yet, do both.

Well I would call them Capsicums (Cap see Come) if they chosen by colour. They are there in the colours you mention including green so place them on a blue table cloth to get a better shade throw.

Not easy, but marriages are made in heaven. One has to to have luck to meet the right person. Soulmates are only for the very few. Good share, Gobi - siva
