I’m going to do my best to summarize– and explain what you can learn from it. 1) Men have a very fair assessment of women’s overall attractiveness.
This doesn’t mean that they’re not shallow (they are), but rather, that they are consistent and reasonable in terms of “rating” women’s looks.
Studying 267 heterosexual couples, they asked how long each pair had known each other and whether they enjoyed a platonic relationship before they began dating. Couples who were friends for longer before getting together were more likely to vary in their attractiveness, while those who began dating right away were generally the same.
In fact, the longer the couple had known each other first, the less likely they were to be 'matched' in how attractive they were.
But the role of physical attractiveness in well-established partnerships, such as marriage, is somewhat of a mystery.
The new study, published in the February issue of the , reveals looks continue to matter beyond that initial attraction, though in a different way.
The reason, researchers suspect, is that men place great value on beauty, whereas women are more interested in having a supportive husband.
Do people stop you on the street to ask you how you landed such a smokin’ catch, or do they look pityingly at you after they get a look at your homely partner’s ugly mug?
My long term ex was the least attractive, but was by far the best girl of the bunch.

If so, you may be punching above or below your weight, a phenomenon that describes mismatched attractiveness between two people who, god knows why, still want to sleep with each other.
One of you got really, really lucky, and is probably very rich or has the captivating appeal of the fidget spinner.
