Why do women lie about their dating preferences? Watch

Proof.

"Results showed that a man's looks influenced both groups of women more strongly than his personality profile. This held true even if a man's profile was filled with highly desirable personal qualities, such as being respectful, honest and trustworthy."

And...

"This is not true of men, she said. Men are more consciously aware — or more willing to admit — that good looks in a woman are more important to them than personality, Fugère said."

So can we finally put to rest the view that women care more about a guy's personality?

I dont think girls really know what they want, they aren't able to quantify what they are attracted to.

Girls really do care more about personality once a guy meets a certain standard for attractiveness, shallow guys won't be any good for the long run.

That is actually what the study showed. That as long as guys are moderately attractive, then personality comes into play. But if you're ugly, it doesn't matter whether you're Jesus or Pol Pot.

Women prefer good looks than personality. Period.

Besides the question of whether women "lie" about what they really prefer (maybe they do, maybe they don't), a more pertinent question is: why then do women profess to be so upset if men say they prefer looks (and BTW different men prefer different looks in women)?

Men prefer looks in women, and they wouldn't lie about it. They'll answer it straight that they prefer looks more than anything that woman has to offer. It goes way back then with Helen of Troy, that shows beauty is everything.

Well as a wOmAn (hope you're not too triggered), I can tell you that I find your thread hilarious as yes I do find looks important at first and probably wouldn't go for someone I don't find attractive. But in the lon run personality is what is more important.

That's a stretch. You're the one getting emotional because you were turned down on a dating site. Maybe it's your personality that's repelling the ladies.

This isn't about me. I simply cited study and one of you is being passive-agressive for no reason and the other is attacking me personally.

Thanks for proving me right tho.

It's not my fault that you've chosen to feel like I'm being passive-agressive. I have no need to pander to someone who hides behind the anon function because they fear 'personal fights'. Don't involve yourself in topics which you know will lead to disagreements if you can't handle it. Good thing the people involved in the study have a bit more spine.

it's because a personality profile doesn't tell you anything about a person. who doesn't say they are honest, intelligent, respectful, etc? nobody. but so far they're just words on paper; doesn't mean anything to a stranger. moreover, personality traits are subjective. you're not honest and intelligent until someone else thinks you are. i could say i'm really funny, but if you don't think so it doesn't really matter.

imo women say looks don't matter much because they know they've liked average looking dudes in the past - it's just that they got to know them first. these women in the study don't know these dudes, so of course their looks matter more. plus studies show that good looking people are more trusted than not good looking people. and, if you take care of yourself physically it sends the message that you're not lazy, that you value yourself, which is a huge turn on for anyone. so yeah, the way you look showcases your personality. these researchers should know this.

You're being disingenuous. You should take responsibility for your own failures instead of being bitter towards women. You didn't even have the courage to post this without going anon - that says a lot.

I think people understimate in real life what moderately attractive actually means.

It's definately greater than attractive.

Having approached a lot of woman eventually I realised that if upon approaching her you are not getting the vibe in the next few seconds that this girl is strongly attracted to you ...then it's best to simply cut your losses and walk away, because the intereaction has a very slim chance of progressing to something more physical. despite what you say to her or how much she is laughing at your jokes/enjoying your company etc..

I don't even know what greater than attractive means and it doesn't really matter, does it? you've to be attractive if you want to get women. Shocking results that study.
