A new study suggests that anyone not named Bezos or Musk isn’t as hot as you might think. The research broke attractiveness into three categories: aesthetics, resources, and personality. While it won’t be shocking to hear that ridiculously good-looking people are still leading the way, it is pretty interesting to hear how that changes over time.

  • Between the ages of 18 to 25, men are looking for someone that’s attractive and rocking a good body. Meanwhile, women the same age are into personality factors much more than their male counterparts.
  • But after 25, the gap between the sexes narrows. As we get older, both men and women start placing much more weight on openness and trust.

The study’s lead author, Stephen Whyte says “maybe there’s something to be said about the wisdom of age.” But then again there is a whole growing body of research that shows what people say they’re looking for in a partner does not actually line up with the choices they’ve made. So maybe when we get older, we’re just better at hiding how much we’re looking for a smoking hot boo.
