Life Partner Tip 41. The Rich Guys Bore You and The Pretty Girls Aren't into Sports!
Have you ever wondered if you could “catch” a rock star or Hollywood movie idol? Well, the latest scientific study shows you can, if you are at that level already.
We all think of the beautiful woman looking for the rich husband or the older man looking for the young bride but after reviewing questionnaires of almost 1000 men and women aged 18 to 24, it seems most men and women are seeking a mate who is similar to them in qualities such as income, beauty, and desire to have children.
The study carried out by Stephen Emlen, a behavioral ecologist at Cornell University, with Peter Buston, now at the University of California, Santa Barbara showed conclusively that we are much more likely to form long term relationships with those who similar to ourselves.
Buston and Emlen's study suggests most men and women in Western society look for partners with qualities on a par with their own. Attractive females, for example, are much more likely to seek a similarly healthy and good-looking mate than a rich one. And wealthy males are more likely to seek a rich wife than a pretty one.
So before you set out to search for a mate, assess your own assets and then look for a life partner who is in the same “range”. Because, says Emlen, long and happy relationships are most likely for couples sharing similar values, education, physical appearance and intellectual interests.
Choosing a partner with far superior qualities can work but there is a higher risk a future breakup, because such a partner might eventually be tempted away by a “higher quality” mate.
At the end of the day if you want to “hook up” with a movie star or an American Idol you will have more “luck” if you first have a hit record or a starring role! And, if that sounds like too much trouble, keep your eyes open at home, because your life partner is more likely a friend of a friend than a Hollywood actor.
