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

It 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?

About Isabella

I was never patriotic, so when Independence Day came, the last thing on my mind was to go out and celebrate. I was bored and I was lonely, and though they weren’t my normal crowd, thesse girls were friends and family members who I grew up with. But Diana had her man, Marsha had hers, and my cousin Lisa had her own. I was the only one who was single and my taste was just too high; the kind of men they dated did not appeal to me. I wanted the executive, the entrepreneur. I was 22 and unhappy about my life. I yearned to be in a relationship; I felt I had so much to give a man, and yet I was single. My friends and I waited for cab and I was still second-guessing whether or not I really wanted to go out. While we were waiting, an older looking gentleman driving a blue pick-up truck drove up to us. As he slowed, he said, “Don’t move. I’m coming right back!” He drove off, leaving a trail of his cologne, as he sped away to drop off the construction workers sitting in the back of the truck. Literally moments later, he came back, stopped in front of us, asked us where we were going, and told us to get in. It turns out his name was Keith. After Keith dropped us off, I realized I didn’t want to stay and asked him to take me back to where he picked us up from. He turned, looked at me, and said, “You were the reason why I picked you all up. I wanted to get to know you. So, I’m happy you decided to leave with me.”
