Poll: Strange charms of the opposite sex

goo Ranking recently asked what aspects of the opposite sex that others might find a little odd did people find alluring, for both men looking at women and women looking at men.


Between the 17th and 18th of January 2012 1,048 members of the goo Research online monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 61.6% of the sample were female, 12.3% in their teens, 15.6% in their twenties, 27.9% in their thirties, 25.8% in their forties, 9.5% in their fifties, and 8.9% in their sixties. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample.

This liking scatterbrain girls apply to most asian men really (of course there are exceptions). You meet some of the most foolish girls and they have guys falling for them. And I have responsible, smart friends who are all single. My brother tells me that many of his guy friends have said they don't want girls who are too smart. It's a men thing, wanting to feel like they can protect. If the girl is a scatterbrain, it feels like she needs protection. I've been told a lot that its more difficult to get a guy being a medical student and female XD

*sigh* Sad, but true. Ah, being an Asian girl is tough. Being a smart, professional Asian girl is impossibru!

The medical students I`ve ran into just seemed to into dating people at their school. Most girls go into nursing. I ran into a young couple where the boy is aiming to become a brain surgeon and his girlfriend who`s going to the same school wants to be a nurse.

But there are plenty of girls who pretend to be ditsier and more childish than they really are.

Medical school and nursing school are different courses :) Half of the students at med school are females. And you notice in your example that its the guy that is higher on the hierarchy :(

Yea, I know of girls who pretend to be more childish, its just a natural conformist behaviour as it attracts the boys ^^

At my school, concerning the medical school campus, the nursing department is mainly female and the rest is mostly male. I only noticed that during the new student entrance ceremony I had to attend the other day. But besides nursing, between the two campuses the school has a larger male population anyway. :/
