A study conducted by Jacamo, a British menswear label, revealed that when it comes to long-term dating 72 percent of women in the UK actually prefer men with the “boy next door” look as opposed to chiseled hunks.
“While men state that a woman’s ideal man would be made up of Justin Bieber’s hair, Gerard Butler’s chiselled face, Hugh Jackman’s moviestar arms, David Gandy’s tight abs and Cristiano Ronaldo’s smooth legs, the response from women showed a contrasting view, set to be welcomed by men across the country.”
But really, what women crave in reality is a nice “boy next door.”
“Men with well-toned bodies are, initially, regarded as attractive, but it is the man with the little bit of excess flab around the waist who often wins the day,” states Jacamo’s press release.
The study suggests that as many as 62 percent of men in the UK are still persuaded that ladies would rather go for a man with “the gladiator look,” and that many men suffer “pangs of anxiety when they fail to match up this image.” Women aren’t the only ones with confidence issues.
