A new study shows that people tend to look at the different parts of the body, depending on whether they're interested in romance or friendship.
A study has found that people tend to prioritize how masculine or feminine a person’s face looks when judging attractiveness.

Yes, there is such a thing as the perfect pout. According to a new study, medical investigators have found the precise measurements for a woman’s ideal lip size. Turns a 1:2 ratio of upper to lower lip that made up about 10 percent of the lower third of the face was deemed most attractive by people viewing various proportions.
Among the findings: For men: Only men classified as “very short” had a lower median number of sexual partners (five), compared to taller men (seven). Men who were overweight and obese had the most sexual partners (eight), followed by those with a normal weight (six). For women: Underweight women had fewer sexual partners (five) than their normal weight (six) and overweight (seven) counterparts. Lead study author David Frederick, PhD, an assistant professor in health psychology at Chapman University, tells Yahoo Health that he was surprised at the weak link between a man’s height and number of sex partners.

Feldman measured oxytocin levels of 80 sets of parents, and found both mothers and fathers had comparable levels of this key chemical, sometimes called “the cuddle hormone,” right after delivery.
