Healthy Women Are Attracted to Pretty Boys

Your Affection For Pretty Boys Is Actually Pretty Healthy

Recently I've started to get what everybody sees in pretty boys: a weekend marathon of Gossip Girl season one saw my love for Nate (Chase Crawford) soar; I've come around to the idea of Zac Efron; and Robert Pattinson? Well I'm up there with the screaming teenage fans. You may laugh at these crushes but it's been proved, in a recent study, that they are indeed healthy. Well that I'm healthy anyway. See, Aberdeen University researchers found that when a nation is unhealthy, women are on the lookout for rugged men who will give them sturdy babies (uh huh), but when all is well and everyone's healthy, the pretty boys win out. According to Dr. Lisa DeBruine, this is where we're at right now: 'We have seen a shift away from rugged, "take-charge" leading men like Clark Gable to preferences for more feminine guys." So really, even if you wanted to, it would be hard to say no to RPatz. Are you a rugged or pretty boy kinda gal?
