Teenage dating and more
“I gave him my card and said I have the perfect girl for him,” recalls Janis, founder of Serious Matchmaking, based in Midtown.“Successful men who are in shape have the pickings when it comes to dating, [but] eventually they want a woman of substance.” Rochkind found that in Carly, 30, a lovely brunette who’s the vice president of her mother’s matchmaking company and a Syracuse University graduate. He loves that Carly isn’t like the swimsuit models he used to go for.Chitre, an environmental lawyer and the founder of Priyamvada Sustainability Consulting, considers herself “a 9 or a 10,” but she says she’s done with gorgeous guys.Now, she’s more interested in “superballer” men with high-paying careers.“From my personal experience, people who are better looking are less likely to pursue advanced degrees, or play an instrument or learn other languages,” says Benedict Beckeld, a 37-year-old Brooklyn writer with a doctorate in philosophy and the body of an Adonis.But he’s quick to note that he’s not just a great set of abs — he also plays the violin and speaks seven languages.
A multipart study from Harvard University, University of La Verne and Santa Clara University researchers found that beautiful people are more likely to be involved in unstable relationships.
“[She] is a softer beauty, someone you can take home and cuddle with, and she’s very elegant,” Rochkind says.
“And she’s 5-foot-2, so she can’t be a runway model, but I think she’s really beautiful and is prettier than anyone I’ve dated.” Carly has no qualms about how her future husband views her compared with his exes.
“When men get to a certain age, they realize that it’s important to meet a life partner that they connect with,” she says.
“Looks fade.” Some great-looking people say they’re given a bad rap unfairly.
The men who were judged to be the best-looking had higher rates of divorce.
