What Your Looks Have to Do with How Much He Loves You

What Your Looks Have to Do with How Much He Loves YouIt isn’t exactly news that men, espe­cially older men, are attracted to beau­ti­ful women—that’s just human nature. But what is news is the fact that there’s now sci­en­tific proof that shows why so many men turn to the sugar daddy lifestyle.

The Jour­nal of Per­son­al­ity and Social Psy­chol­ogy recently pub­lished a study that found a strong link between men’s sat­is­fac­tion in a mar­riage and the phys­i­cal attrac­tive­ness of their wife. Researchers tracked more than 450 newly mar­ried cou­ples and dis­cov­ered that men who believed their wife was attrac­tive were more likely to report being happy in their mar­riage. Although attrac­tive­ness was a fac­tor in some wives’ sat­is­fac­tion, the con­nec­tion was sig­nif­i­cantly stronger for men.

Not only were men with beau­ti­ful wives hap­pier in their mar­riage, their wives reported being more sat­is­fied as well, which just goes to show that if your hus­band is happy, you’re more likely to be as well. It makes sense; if a man thinks his wife is attrac­tive, he’s prob­a­bly going to work a lit­tle harder to please her and keep her happy so that she doesn’t get snatched up by some­one else.

A past study out of the Uni­ver­sity of Cal­i­for­nia actu­ally proved this the­ory. Researchers found that hus­bands who were attracted to their wives were “more com­mit­ted” and “more invested in pleas­ing their wives when they felt that they were get­ting a pretty good deal,” the good deal being that they landed a hot wife.

This is def­i­nitely good news for sugar babies, who have a leg up when it comes to snag­ging a rich older man. And it’s a win-win sit­u­a­tion for both of you—that’s why sugar daddy/sugar baby rela­tion­ships work. If he’s dat­ing a beau­ti­ful young woman like your­self, he’s more likely to be sat­is­fied in the rela­tion­ship, which means that, in return, he’ll treat you well and you’ll be hap­pier, too.

What do you think: Do you agree that attrac­tive peo­ple are more sat­is­fied in relationships?
