Attraction might be an easy concept when you see a person you like, but as you get deeper into what makes men and women tick, you’ll find a whole new fascinating world of facts waiting to be discovered. Yep, I’m talking about science here that has posed some viable questions over the course of human history and now offers more than a few valuable answers about what attracts men, women, and why are we drawn to some people, but have absolutely no chemistry with others (although we find them kind of cute). Here are 7 scientific facts about attraction you can use the next time you go on a date.
Smell is everything
Women are wired in a funny way – you might have noticed that already. While it is certainly important what the guy looks like, a woman is more likely to fall for the guy with a pleasant smell (or simply the one that she individually finds delightful). While guys pay more attention to the look the first time they see a person, a woman will look, but she will also smell – and that will instantly tell her whether they’re compatible or not. It’s actually pretty amazing!
Dogs boost attraction
Guys like to joke that they have more chances of getting a girl’s number if they’re with a baby or cute dog. Well, there’s actually some truth to it! While a baby might signal that the guy is taken, a dog simply boosts the guy’s cuteness level and tells ladies that he’s a caring soul and can be trusted in general.
Red is the colour of attraction
Red has always been viewed as the colour of love, passion, power, and high status. All those things mixed together create a wonderfully exciting cocktail that has an impact on both men and women. That’s why women always look so dramatically beautiful and enticing in red dresses, while men dressed in red draw much more attention than guys wearing any other colour. It’s bold and it is always a statement!
