What do women find attractive in men? If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably been exposed to media reinforcing a stereotype that women really only care about one thing: money, money, and more money.
Some have argued that this stereotype actually has evolutionary roots, claiming that it was adaptive for our female ancestors to evolve a preference for men with resources in order to help ensure the survival of their children. As support for this idea, study after study has found that women rate traits like status and wealth as more important than men do when looking for a long-term partner.
However, the fact that women tend to care more about money than men isn’t the same as saying that women only care about money, or that money is even their biggest concern.
In reality, women care about a bunch of other things far more than they care about money.
