A study by scientist Dr. Jeremy Nicholson appearing in the magazine Psychology Today sought to uncover what physical characteristics were attractive to the opposite sex. They were stunned to discover that most of these qualities were things that men could change such as: good grooming, neatness, nice clothes, posture and a healthy weight.
