Why do woman choose men a notch below themselves in the looks department? Research reveals match ups such as these are more positive and supportive than other match ups. Researchers suspect men place great value on beauty and that woman place more value on having a supportive husband emotionally and economically.
Although past research has shown that couples who are equal in the looks department are attracted to one another and enjoy greater satisfaction in the relationship, most of these studies were done with new couples.
So a study done last February shows the difference between couples based off of attractiveness. One third of the group had a more attractive husband, another third contained couples with a more attractive wife, and the remainder were considered equal in attractiveness.
The couples with a more attractive wife showed to behave more positively to one another. The theory to that is that he (the husband) is getting something more than he possibly expected so he is going to work hard to keep it.
Than in the couples where the husband was more attractive showed to be less supportive of one another. With this response comes the idea that ďthe grass is greener mentality.Ē These men can always find a more attractive mate.
Although this idea seems a little crazy I actually believe it would work out this way. I remember from general psychology that research has shown that men go more off of looks, and woman go off of support emotionally and economically. So I guess guys who feel theyíre a little less attractive than the guy next to him, hey you still have a shot with the good-looking ones yourself. It might just take a little bit longer for her to realize that sometimes the good-looking men are a little to into themselves.

I think this article gives hope to guys like me (not very good looking, although I think Iím sexy most people probably donít think so) I have confidence and women are attracted to that confidence. I think that good looking guys are too into themselves too (they can't pull themselves away from the mirror to give anyone the time of day) Itís just the way our minds work men are more attracted to beauty and women are more attracted to money and personality. I think it was foreseeable that I was gonna say that. And I donít think that looks shouldnít attribute to how much you like someone anyways because beauty fades eventually.

This is a great article. Of course men are going for girls who are the most attractive. Guys do not go for girls for the same reasons girls go for guys. Guys donít care if their girl is bitchy as long as she is hot and is worth having around. (if you no what I mean.) Girls would rather have a guy to talk to them and be nice to them. For me I had the really hot girl and it was worth it but she was such a bitch I could not stand it. But yet I still go for the super hot girls hoping that I can find one this isnít full of herself and actually is nice. I know this is a rare commodity but hopefully ill find one.

I donít know about that article. It doesnít seem valid. All guys want the hottest girlfriend because guys place more of an importance on good looks rather than personality. Girls are different in just like what the other guy said wanting someone to talk to. I donít think of the beautiful girls as out of anyones league but, a lot of times it seems like they go out with huge dudes really muscular or what ever. I guess it also depends on the individual too. If they are shallow very few men would fit with their high expectations of good looks so I think it is just their personality.

I would want a good looking man. I wouldn't worry about his looks because I would believe I could get someone else like he could. They probably marry less attractive men because of insecurity, thinking that noone would probably want him and he probably would feel the same way. Thinking that his wife is so beautiful and he has her. He probably thinks he's the lucky guy because she is beautiful. I also believe they marry less attractive men because of bad experiences with a man that was good looking. But I do agree that good looking men tend to be into themselfs. Because I knew this guy that looked good and he always looked in the mirror. He looked in it more than I did and I was the girl.
