Turns Out, This Is Considered the Most Attractive Body Type

There's no doubt that attraction comes down to personal preference, but according to The Telegraph, a new study suggests that human biology also plays a pretty big role. In fact, Swiss scientists discovered that deciding whether we're attracted to someone is one of the most complex tasks the human brain endures, taking into account a ton of subtle evolutionary nuances you might not be aware of. 

Think you have a type? These are the universal traits science says you're probably attracted to:

  1. Body shape: Apparently, we quickly sum up a potential partner based on evolutionary traits, like their ability to bear children. Women with a waist-to-hips ratio of 7:10 are considered the most attractive, while men with a ratio of 9:10 and a big jaw are seen as ideal. 
  2. Hair colour: A 2011 study published in the Scandinavian Journal of Psychology found that brunettes are generally seen to be more attractive, but that blonde hair signifies youth and vitality, which can be subconsciously taken into account when trying to find an S.O. 
  3. Finger length: Intriguingly, studies suggest the longer the ring finger is in comparison with the index finger, the more testosterone is present.
