jasper_amsterdam (788332) writes "The daily mail has a story about a study looking into women's preference for men. More specifically, about how women say they want one kind of man, but really want another. From the article: "Most women claim to be attracted to tall, dark and handsome men, but a new study has revealed that facial stubble and a geeky personality are their biggest secret turn-ons. Despite complaining that it looks unkempt and feels rough to touch, the unshaven look on a man is actually a turn-on for 41 per cent of women. A slightly geeky personality came second, proving that women really do like a guy who knows their stuff when it comes to technology. A hairy chest was voted third, followed by a man who loves to read or cries at a soppy film.""

To clarify: I am a scientist and yes, the term 'research proves' in the title was intended to be sarcastic. The char limit didn't leave room for quotation marks. =D

Sorry, ladies, I'm taken. (1)

Geeky personality, check. Facial hair, check. Chest hair, check. Gray hair, check. Glasses, check. Soft and cuddly, big time. Not overly concerned with appearances, check. Doesn't watch weight, yep. Passionate sports fan, GO PACKERS. Cries at sappy films? More often than not. Reads a lot, check. A few flaws? Define "few".

According to this, in London, I'd be a total superconducting babe magnet!

(Thankfully, my blushing bride gives me many reasons to not test that theory out.)
