A new study has created a composite of the ‘perfect husband’ and the results are surprising. Most men assumed it would be Brad Pitt’s abs from ‘Fight Club’ on the list, instead it’s a flabby ‘boy next door’ look that women lust after in a mate.
I for one call ‘BULLSHIT’ on this study, as there’s absolutely no way this male composite is that ‘perfect husband’ that chicks are lusting after:
According to the DailyMail, that man above is a composite of the ‘perfect husband’. Details of the study:
While men state that a woman’s ideal man would be made up of Justin Bieber’s hair, Gerard Butler’s chiselled face, Hugh Jackman’s movie-star arms, David Gandy’s tight abs and Cristiano Ronaldo’s smooth legs, the response from women showed a contrasting view.
The reality of what women seek when it comes to bagging a keeper shows that they’re after Prince Harry’s cheeky smile, comedian James Corden’s hair, and Take Me Out host Paddy McGuinness’ arms.
They also seek a stomach like rugby star Ben Cohen’s and, perhaps more curiously, legs like Jonathan Ross.
Indeed, the survey revealed that a more rounded ‘boy next door’ physique is the more favourable look with 72 per cent of women who want to form lasting relationships.
Men with well-toned bodies are, initially, regarded as attractive, but it is the man with the little bit of excess flab around the waist who often wins the day.
The research also revealed that the most successful relationships had been made with a ‘boy next door’.
A spokesperson for Jacamo, who commissioned the research, said: ‘Women tell us that men with ordinary bodies are seen as good family makers who pay more attention to their partners than they do to themselves.
‘While hunks will always catch the eye, many women regard them as bad bets in the long run because they may be self-obsessed and more concerned with their own looks and needs rather than anyone else.’
The good news for me is that when it comes to ‘the perfect husband’ I land somewhere between ‘perfect super model’ and ‘a Greek God’.
Now I fully understand that the puggy man above is a composite of ‘the perfect husband’ and not the perfect male physique, but it’s pretty damn hilarious when taken in context of what men and women see as ‘the perfect woman’ composite:
I guess men just have better taste in physique AND life-long partners than women?
For now go ahead and give yourself a little pat on the back for looking better than a flabby (borderline ginger) lumberjack.
