Ladies find 'feminine-looking' men more attractive, a new study has revealed.
In the University of Aberdeen study, led by Dr Ben Jones, from the Face Research Laboratory, 449 women were shown a series of images of men's faces that had been manipulated.
Some were made to look more feminine, while others were made to appear more masculine, reports The Daily Express.
The study's volunteers were then asked to pick which men they would chose for a long-term relationship.
Three-quarters of them chose the more feminine-looking men and preferred those who were looking directly at the camera.
Jones said: "Women perceive feminine men as honest, kind and even as good parents.
"So it makes good sense that women find these caring and sharing men attractive when thinking about a long-term partner."
