Women say no to macho men

  • Women say no to macho men

    Men who have feminine facial features are perceived by women to be more committed and less likely to cheat, according to new research.

    The study, conducted by psychologists from Durham and St Andrews Universities, 400 men and women were asked to judge pictures of male faces that were digitally altered to look more and less feminine.

    Men with masculine features such as a square jaw, larger nose and smaller eyes, were perceived as being significantly more dominant, less faithful, worse parents and less warm than those men who had fuller lips, wide eyes and thinner, more curved eyebrows.

    The findings suggest that women are likely to find men with more masculine features less suitable as a long-term partner.

    Lead author Dr Lynda Boothroyd commented: "This research shows a high amount of agreement between women about what they see, personality wise, when asked to 'judge a book by its cover'."
