An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Women date their Dad lookalikes and Men date their Mom lookalikes

The reason why certain groups and people in certain geographies have different type of features for a long time and continue to be known for beautiful women or handsome men is because there is an underlying super selection going on.

The evolution is hidden in every dating process that a young man or women goes through.

Because men and women go for people who look like their parents. While girls always date guys who resemble their fathers, guys date females who resemble their Moms. So, in a way, they continue to carry on the family features ahead.. however different the spouse may other wise look or be like. This study was done by Tamas Bereczkei, a biologist at the University of Pecs, Hungary, and his colleagues mapped the faces of 67 young, long-term couples at their university.

….the face of a woman’s boyfriend’s more closely resembles her father’s than the faces of other males in the study. The correlation was most striking for measurements of the centre of the face, such as the ratios between nose length to face height and eye width to face height.

Men also dated women whose faces more closely resembled their mothers than other women in the study. But here, men seemed to focus on the lower part of the face. The ratios between jaw and face width and lip fullness (height) and width of their mothers and girlfriends tended to match.
