Men and women might wax lyrical about looking for someone who is kind, sensitive and funny. But a new study shows that when it comes to finding partners, the dreaded cliché seems to be true. A study published in the Journal of Evolution and Human behaviour shows what really matters to men is looks - while women want a man with a booming bank balance.The study asked hundreds of young men and women what mattered when choosing a partner. The categories were attractiveness, wealth, ambition, kindness and intelligence.

无论男男女女都有可能诗意地幻想自己的伴侣是一个善良,敏感有幽默感的人,但是一项最新的研究发现当人们在真正寻找另一半时,那些可怕的陈词滥调又一次变成了现实。在《进化与人类行为日报》上刊登的一则调查研究显示,真正决定男人择偶的还是外表,而女人则更想要一个有钱人。这次调查面对几百个年轻男女发起,询问他们哪些因素可能影响他们对伴侣的选择,结果包括了以下几类:吸引力,财富,事业心,善良和聪明。

And results shows men were overwhelmingly swayed by an attractive face and body, while women were hooked on wealth and ambition.

调查结果也显示了压倒性数量的男人都会被漂亮的脸蛋和身材所吸引,而对于女人来说她们则更关注男人的金钱和事业心。

Professor Gad Saad, who co-authored the study with Tripat Gill, said the research seems to highlight how evolution has led us to this 'irrational' decision-making.

嘉德·萨阿德教授,和特里帕特·吉尔一起合著了该研究,称这一研究正反映了自然演化是如何引领我们做出这种看似“荒谬”的决定的。

 Mr Saad said: 'Choosing someone who might be a poor provider or an unloving father would have serious consequences for a woman and for her offspring.

'萨阿德教授说:“选择一个穷困潦倒的人来养家糊口或者一个缺乏爱心的父亲,势必会对这个女人和她的孩子的生活造成严重的影响。”

The survey, carried out at Concordia University in Montral, Quebec, Canada, gave overall descriptions of potential partners, along with positive and negative descriptions.

本次调查在加拿大魁北克省蒙特利尔市的肯高迪亚大学进行,调查的内容是对你所期待的伴侣进行全面的描述,包括优点和缺点。

It showed that an attractive body and an attractive face were seen as more important to men, while earning potential and ambition were more important to women. Both said kindness and intelligence were equally important to both. 

调查显示长相和身材的迷人对于男人择偶似乎更为重要,而对女人而言她们更在乎男人的收入潜力和事业心。然而无论男女都会认为善良和聪明一样重要。
