    Blue-eyed men prefer blue-eyed women

    Blue-eyed men prefer blue-eyed women

    OSLO (Reuters) - Blue-eyed men prefer blue-eyed women, apparently because eye color can help reveal whether their partner has been faithful, researchers said on Monday.

    "Before you request a paternity test, spend a few minutes looking at your child's eye color," Bruno Laeng and colleagues at the University of Tromso in Norway said in the study.

    Under the laws of genetics, two parents with blue eyes will always have blue-eyed children, it said. So a blue-eyed man can know his blue-eyed wife or partner has cheated on him if their child has brown eyes.

    "Blue-eyed men may have unconsciously learned to value a physical trait that can facilitate recognition of own kin," the scientists said in the journal Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology.

    The scientists asked 88 students to rate the attractiveness of models based on pictures manipulated so that half of them had blue eyes and the other half had brown eyes. The blue-eyed men in the group showed a preference for blue-eyed women.

    But brown-eyed men, who cannot find any clues about paternity from a child's eye color, had no preferences by eye color. Women showed no preference for brown- or blue-eyed men, irrespective of their own eye color.

    A quarter of children born to two brown-eyed parents who have both brown and blue-eye genes among their ancestors will have blue eyes. The rest will be brown.

    In a second study, 443 young adults of both sexes were asked about the eye color of their partners -- blue-eyed men were also the group with the highest proportion of partners with the same eye color.

    I think everyone would prefer blue (light)-eyed women. Don't sure if there are any who like black-eyed girls.

    Well, the truth is in the eye of the beholder, but yes, effectively i prefer light eyed women too. ; at least whatever tonalities lighter than brown (blue, grey, green, hazel). My ideal girl shouldn't be darker eyed than me, i mean.

    Most men prefer light-eyed women. I made my imaginary girlfriend have blue eyes.

    My parents had both mixed (green-brown and green-grey respectively) eyes, I have brown eyes. I like blue eyes, but honestly eye color is of secondary importance to me, the face, body and personality of the individual is much more important to me than one's eye color.

    I like blue eyes alot but they are not the most important attribute to a man. The most important things are that he cares and has a good character. Physically it's body height. I like tall men...

    Re: Blue-eyed men prefer blue-eyed women

    I wonder if it works for other eye colours? Both my parents are brown eyed. I prefer brown-eyed girls too, to be honest. There's something about them which I find softer and more feminine. Nothing against blue eyes of course. The weird thing is that my brother is blue-eyed and so far he's dated mostly girls with blue/grey eyes also, so it seems to conform to this study's findings. I don't suppose it matters all that much though, like people already said other factors like personality are much more important. If a nice girl steps into my life I could care less about her eye colour.

    Maybe someone should make a poll, or something.

    Re: AW: Blue-eyed men prefer blue-eyed women

    I have green eyes, and would prefer the guy I date/marry to have green or blue. As far as I know my mom, her mom, her mom, etc have had green eyes (and brown hair). I'd prefer to continue that trend if I ever have kids.
