The Rules of Attraction

There’s no mistaking that feeling you get when you you think someone is attractive. But have you ever asked yourself WHY you find a person attractive? I’ve always found this topic fascinating. What qualities are we attracted to, biologically, in the opposite sex?


What Men Find Biologically Attractive in Women

  1. A waist-to-hip ratio of .7
  2. Full lips
  3. Large eyes
  4. Smaller jaw, chin
  5. Voluminous hair
  6. Symmetry
  7. White teeth
  8. Wearing red

What Women Find Biologically Attractive in Men

  1. Largeness (muscles, body size)
  2. 0.9 waist-to-hip ratio, no higher than 1.0 (V-shaped body)
  3. Symmetry
  4. Broad shoulders
  5. If she’s looking for stability, more feminine features in the face are desirable
  6. White teeth
