Highlight Story

Gentlemen really favour blondes when it comes to a choice for a date, a new survey has revealed.According to research, men are 3 percent more likely to opt for a blonde over a brunette if they were given the choice.

The survey, which analysed what people look for when choosing the perfect date, showed that 27 percent of men prefer curvy women.

The report by dating site said that both men and women would choose an attractive face over a great body with the most important features being eyes and the smile.

“Society has created this blonde versus brunette divide,” the Mirror quoted Psychologist Dr Simon Moore, of London Metropolitan university, as saying.“Far more blondes than brunettes appear on our television and movie screens so we’re going to be conditioned to finding them more attractive.The more we see something in our daily lives, the more we like something.Men know that supermodels are doing a job and that being skinny is part of that. It’s not representative of most women.Subconsciously, we are also looking at a woman’s hip to waist ratio which can indicate their suitability for child bearing and assessing them on that,” he added.
