Some of the results from this study might come as a shock to some people. For one thing not many women like very muscular guys. As a matter of fact, “Only 2.5% of women globally prefer a ‘Very muscular’ body type in a long-term partner. ‘Average’ body-types are the most popular (44.8%), followed by ‘Fit, Athletic’ body-types (34.8%).” One finding that is probably seen as a no-brainer but I find shocking is that over 90% of women prefer their partner to be taller than them. Not to say this is weird but height shouldn’t be that big of a deal. Another shocking finding was, “Only 25.4% of global women thought ‘religious similarity’ was very important, and for ‘ethnic  similarity’ this figure was 9.8%. In America, however, more than anywhere else in the world women consider ‘same religious background’ as very important (39.5%, compared with the global average of 25.4%).” 

More common findings made in this study are, that money and looks aren’t as important as some might think. In fact, only 22.3% of women consider ‘attractive body’ very important. While ‘financial security’ is considered important by 41.3% of women. The thing that triumphed all other attributes is personality. “88.9% of women consider ‘kindness’ a very important trait in an ideal partner, closely followed by ‘supportiveness’ (86.5%), and ‘intelligence’ (72.3%).” Making the one thing we’ve all heard countless amounts of time, looks come and go but personality will always be there. Additionally, extended findings and the downloadable report is now available at: https://to.clue.health/idealpartner. This study is the first of a three part series, with the next two reports being released in Q3 of 2019.
