Attraction

Posted on: February 2nd, 2013 by Executive Matchmaker Romella Battle

Do men prefer women with no brains and big breasts or a woman that they would be proud to take home to their mother? Vice versa  if a man has his shirt off and looks like Brad Pitt! Are women more attracted to what we see than what comes out of his mouth? Let’s examine all sides of the equation!

I’ve asked this question to my friends a couple of times before. Honestly, first impressions do count. Of course your eyes will stray to someone attractive. However, you will never know if the attractive person has a provoking personality or is conceited, arrogant and/or ditzy.. until you actually approach the person and talk to her/him.

Some typical answers I have heard to this question go along this line: “if I was out with my friends, I would be looking for an attractive woman but just to hook up with, but I want a real girl who I can take home to my mom but with a great personality and is wife-material.”

Numerous people say that they would choose personality over looks but would also like their mate to be attractive, but first impressions speak volumes, creating a stereotypical image of what women and men should look like for society to base their first impressions on. It creates higher and unrealistic expectations but this is how the world works.

So what do you think? Who would you choose?
