    psychology viewpoints vary but some common factors affecting attraction:

    Buss (1989) suggested that men place great importance on the physical appearance of a partner
    This physical attraction acts as a cue to a women's health and the fertility and reproductive value of the woman
    men are said to prefer neoteny (big eyes, small nose etc.), small waist to hip ratio and symmetrical faces in female partners

    Women place the same importance on physical attractiveness for short term relationships, they prefer tall, strong men who have good facial symmetry, they also prefer older men.
    When it comes to long term relationships it's suggested that women place a higher importance on other factors such as financial status however, it's still important that their partner is physically attractive as it means their children are likely to inherit these genes, making them more likely to reproduce and pass on the same genes. (I can't think of any studies for this rn)

    You should research the matching hypothesis, it basically explains how an individual is more likely to form successful relationships with someone who is roughly the same in terms of physical attractiveness

    If you need anymore help just message me obviously
    How do you know who is the same physically?

    In some studies both partners were rated on a scale of physical attractiveness by multiple participants then an average rating was obtained and the ratings of both partners were compared

    I have to write a dissertation style essay about attraction, even tho it's irrelevant to my subjects
    I'm allowed to interpret attraction however I want, but I guess the easier option would be attraction between people
    so what makes u attracted to other people (doesn't have to be romantically)

    edit: can u state ur gender too and which gender ur attracted to
    Female attracted to male.

    What attracts me:
    Intelligence
    Wisdom
    Common sense
    Cleanliness
    Appearance
    Relationships with other people (has to openly love his mum etc) 😚
    Smartly dressed
    Well groomed
    Sense of humour
    Nice smile
    Nice bod

    Ok.

    How do you know who's your equal in physical attractiveness, in the real world where no such autistic techniques may be used.

    Guess at a subconcious level, people are attracted to other people who are "in their league". But yet again, everyone is attracted to the 10/10 celebrity most of the time so idek

    Not sure how psychological this is, but I like conversation flowing easily? If it's not forced and I genuinely enjoy it then I will be more likely to catch feelings. Have you thought about attractions to objects? In different terms. Like there are people who have actual attractions to objects, or you can study why we are attracted to objects and want to buy them, not necessarily actual attraction

    In terms of approaches, I guess you can make it fit into most of them? Behaviourist - get good feelings from being around that person, which then makes you want to spend more time with them which causes attraction to grow and etc etc
