    Sorry, milady, I shall desist, in the near future, from making any unwarranted humorous remarks against your person.

    Good night milady.

    Intelligence, humour, smile, looks ofc, smell and confidence is a big one. I tend to look for the smaller things, although looks are still important

    Ok.

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

    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

    I think it depends on what sort of person you are.
    I'm personally attracted to looks AND personality. (E.g. if someone's super hot, but they have no sense of humour and are a complete narcissist, then I'll go off the person quickly, because I just find that kind of behaviour boring). It's only if you're madly and ridiculously in love with someone, that you'll be oblivious and blind to their true behaviour. (Like Bella Swan and Anastasia Steele. I know, I hate mentioning them, too, but let's face it, they are pretty stupid...)
    I think it depends on whether you are superficial or not. You don't have to be clever to be superficial. I know people who get amazing grades or whatever, but aren't a good judge of character.
    Super narcissistic people are only attracted to themselves and obviously everyone else admiring them. They aren't intellectual at all.
    Whereas, normal people are attracted to looks, because that is what they'll first see, but it's when they get to know them, that they'll discover what their personalities are.

    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
    I'm female and attracted to males. I'm going to answer this in terms of why I'm attracted to my boyfriend (not an exhaustive list). He's tall (6'1") which makes me feel protected. He's strong, again protection. Most importantly, he has a great sense of humour and makes me laugh every day, several times a day. It's because of this we have such a great time together. He's also quite outdoorsy whereas I am not, so he is introducing me to new experiences and taking me out my comfort zone to be more outgoing, so he's helping me develop as a person. I doubt I'd be into him if he was an introvert like me. Hope this helps
