Don’t get six-pack abs. Get, uh, symmetrical.
The research backs up previous findings that symmetrically proportioned faces are more attractive and suggests that our brains are hard-wired to find symmetry sexy in a potential partner. In our evolutionary past, symmetry may have been an honest signal of flawless development and health. …
The theory is that disturbances in the womb, infections, poor nutrition and genetic flaws all increase your degree of asymmetry and so good proportions are an honest indication of healthy development and hence a partner’s ability to produce healthy children.
My boyfriend is pretty darn symmetrical, but so far he hasn’t produced any healthy children for me. We’ll keep plugging away at it, though.
