On the other hand, parents with heritable traits that are more advantageous to girls are more likely to have daughters.” Beauty is apparently just one “female” trait.
Kanazawa has done previous research suggesting that nurses, social workers and kindergarten teachers — those with “empathic” traits — also had more daughters than sons.
Haven’t you ever met a girl you thought was the hottest thing in the world, then once you got to know her… And after you know how lame she is, you may still think she’s hot, but you’re just not really to her.
Or how about a girl who barely caught your eye at first, but became incredibly sexy after a good conversation?
Reduced Relationship Longevity Recent research shows that relationships involving highly attractive individuals are less likely to endure over the long term, perhaps due to the tendency to be unfaithful discussed above.
Recent research using a variety of different methods shows that more attractive individuals are more likely to divorce, that they have shorter relationships, and that they are less likely to choose to pursue attractive alternative partners (Ma-Kellams et al., 2017).
And all of those qualities are impossible to decipher from physical appearance alone.
Further, in married couples with more attractive husbands, these husbands report reduced relationship satisfaction and are less supportive of their spouses (Mc Nulty et al, 2008).
Interestingly, more masculine, taller men are also more likely to divorce and remarry than their shorter counterparts (Mueller and Mazur, 2001).
Additionally, women partnered with attractive, masculine men report more frequent orgasms (Puts et al., 2012); this finding alone may make some of you stop reading now and pursue the most attractive, masculine guy you can. Attractive, Masculine Men Are More Likely to Cheat Women may be less interested in dating attractive men over the long term because of these men's higher propensity to be unfaithful. Social Psychological and Personality Science, 1(1), 34–42.
Women perceive attractive men as both more likely to cheat and more likely to leave long-term relationships (Waynforth, 2001).
