RULES OF ATTRACTION

Hi Guys,
Im currently doing a degree in Cognitive Psychology and could use some help with an assignment.

... imagine yourself walking into a crowded bar - you scan the room and make eye contact with the most amazing person. You feel your stomach roll and your "libido" (for want of a better expression!) wake up. WHY?

Why is that person so appealling to you, compared to all the other men/women in the room, bearing in mind that you haven't exchanged a single word - so brains/personality don't come into it. What happened during that second when your eyes met?

What attracts you - is it just blonde hair, for example, or is it something more carnal?

Thanks Guys (I could do with some decent CPD points so all comments gratefully received).

ps. apologies if this thread has already been "done" - I'm new to this.

    same here, sometimes the plain (for want of a better expression) appeals to me more than the bombshell everyone else is drooling over

    Face, Body, Personality - In that order on meeting people for first time.

    If they have an ok face and good body = Higher score.
    good face bad body = Lower scare.
    Both = Oohh high score.

    Have everything and sound like a chav then i wont speak to them unless im desperate.

    Honesty for you... lol

    Agreed!

    They have to be fit, then i check their personality, and if i dont like it, then its game over. If they have the whole package, then we're in business

    From a psychology standpoint- think genetic potential cues.

    So blokes in the main like, young (your as old as your eggs) women who look healthy, well proportioned (symmetry), who give off ovulation cues (hence lipstick etc)

    As we are still monkeys that wear clothes non-verbal cues play a major part in attraction.

    Personality/intelligence can be important because these will also influence the success of your genes.

    We also give off chemicals (not pheromones) that tell us about the other persons genetic compatability, if they are too similar it uncousciously puts us off the other person.

    Attraction for women is the same, good genes, however they are also looking for indications that the male can also be a provider.

    Humans kid themselves that they are above their animal instincts and that free will choices are not a forced card.

    I used to have this in my younger days. Not often. Strange feeling. You both seem to look up at once, eyes meet and over and over goes your stomach. Happened when I met my hubbie and still occasionally get the same feeling (with him)

    Well that situation never happens to me really. I've never felt those emotions or feelings that you described when I made eye contact with a stranger.

    But things I find attractive in a woman are eyes - eye contact is the only thing that would actually catch my attention in the crowded room that you described.

    Then hair, and a pretty face. A nice figure helps too but that's not one of the first things I'd notice.

    It's:

    Eyes
    Hair and face
    Figure

    Obviously we haven't even approached each other at this point so there's no way I could tell anything about her as a person. But I will say that I've slept with lovely women who were maybe not the fittest girls in the room. But I've never slept with someone I found annoying, no matter how nice looking she was.

    I always know when I walk into a place whether or not I will find someone attractive without looking - like a sixth sense feeling!

    Thanks guys

    - this is proving interesting, as the initial part of the assignment was to watch the behaviour of people in a crowded bar. Instintively / subconsciously the initial contact always IMO appeared to be "assess body" before anything else however most people are unaware that they do this.

    I personally would also answer that I am attracted by the eyes and mouth of man - but in all honesty would not necessarily be attracted to a man if he didn't also have a good body. Just as you say Alpine - I think it is down to our animal instincts at the end of the day.

    This is gonna be one of those assignments when I talk myself in a circle and end up with no true conclusion!

    My quick scan goes-

    LEGS

    ARSE

    FACE

    Tits are a bonus, but not too big. If she ticks all the physical boxes, then she can buy me a drink.

    Don't forget about transference either, this can have a very powerful influence on your judgement of someone. Good or bad.

    EYES!!!!
    They are the window to the soul.
    If the eyes don't show me what I'm looking for then forget it. I go no further.

    If they do, then it is the subtle body language of confidence a person shows.
    After that, it's the arms and hands.
