(Reuters) - Forget the square jaw, rugged complexion and tough-guy macho attitude -- what women really want is a man with full lips and feminine features, according to a British study published on Wednesday.

The findings add to previous research about masculinity and offer further insight into what people look for in others when choosing potential partners, said evolutionary psychologist Lynda Boothroyd, who led the study.

I was reading a study about Londoners the other day and it said that the number one thing that women look for in men is having an eco-outlook. So if you do your recycing, drive a car with low emissions, etc. you should be more attractive to the opposite sex?

Also, things like making women laugh came high up on the list.

I knew it.. I just knew it. That explains a lot of things, like why I don't have a girlfriend...

- Yeah the sort with hairy armpits, hairy legs, dreadlocks, wear DM's and drink special brew from the can.

No thanks.

(or in short Basildon woman)

Anyone check out the women's magazines to see what women write about and what women want?

I'd suggest looking at successful advertising campaigns, and if British ads are filled with girlie boys, well, there ya have it.

Or maybe, just maybe, the study suggest that women that take the time to participate in a 'masculinity study' prefer feminine guys...

I don't care much for PC, but I care about advertising.

Remember the heroin addict model look of the late 90s? Is heroin addiction PC?

Eco-friendly?

Perhaps women just want men with low emissions...

I would almost think so... no, I would think so. The emphasis on thin and the regurgitated (who does that?) philosophy that indicates this is acceptable, even preferrable, is, well... I don't know what it is except that it's not right...

Those rail-thin models could learn from me... I mean it's all about being happy with what you are... I'm a fat boy who'se happy with what he are...

Manboobs don't count!

Here in California, what women really want is another woman. They gave up on us guys years ago. ;)

>Here in California, what women really want is another woman.

In Tennessee, they want a man that can wear a white tee, covered in grease, that's able to make the tractor start, and still run low 9s with their 70 Roadrunner. Change a tire, sit a horse, TIG, MIG, and know when to plant what. Cook a perfect steak and know how to make biscuits and gravy.

Shoot, skin and cook deer meat, master the dogs and praise their womens' cooking circle fried pies. And still park their sweet little ass in a new Caddy when they go to family reunions. And wear a cowboy hat without looking stupid...

OOOeee.

Don't have the time to hang at Wal-mart though. Gotta weed that garden. Feed the dogs. Cows. Chickens. Goats. Horses. Donkeys. Then test those reloads.

220 acres. Want another 2k acres.

Need to feed those beef cows eh?

Pfff. That is the answer they give to survey-takers and others who ask what they are looking for in a man. What they TAKE in a man is likely to be the opposite! Publish a study on THAT, and I'll be quite interested. ;)

Anyone agrees that amongst the IT people there is the biggest percentage of guys totally unable to attract babes? I find this not to be just a common prejudice. Same thing goes for scientists and similar intellectual groups.

This thread really got me ticking cause just recently I joined a crew of dating coaches that professionally teach guys how to get babes. And I must say that, as with almost anything else, it stands that you can teach almost anything to a person of average intelligence and solid motivation.

That's right, digitalghost, here in Tennessee, we have high expectations! We expect our men to be able to fix anything mechanical with a coat-hanger and pliers. Welding is important, but a man should be a fair carpenter, too.

We don't want to tolerate rooster-fighting, going to the girlie bars, or gambling. We will communicate our disapproval if the man drinks brown liquor, but this is not necessarily a deal-breaker provided he makes good money.

I think anyone who is teaching how to "get babes" is already off to a rocky start. ;)
