And now for some breaking news from the department of obvious: Apparently people like todatehotties.Yes, that’s right. Researchers from Northwestern and Texas A&M teamed up to find outwhether or not people like attractive partners. Since some of us say that physicalattraction isn’t always the preeminent factor in a companion, this astute group ofscientists has proved to us that we’re lying to ourselves if we say that looks arenot that important.It’s good that this crucial, scientific breakthroughhas been made. Even though there is a limited number of sexy partners on this planet, wenow know that a large portion of the world's population is settling for less in the lookscategory -- including old people, who remain agonizingly married to people whose lookshave faded.It has nothing to do with the fact that we accept people for whothey are as a whole instead of solely dating for looks. No, as science proves to us,we’re merely misleading ourselves if we’re not dating the hottest piece of assout there.Great work, team.
