The cat is finally out of the bag.
A study commissioned by Jacamo, a British menswear label reveals that when it comes to long-term dating 72 percent of women in the UK actually prefer men with the "boy next door" look as opposed luscious hulks.
The statement sent to A+ discloses another unexpected twist:
"While men state that a woman's ideal man would be made up of Justin Bieber's hair, Gerard Butler's chiselled face, Hugh Jackman's moviestar arms, David Gandy's tight abs and Cristiano Ronaldo's smooth legs, the response from women showed a contrasting view, set to be welcomed by men across the country."
Guys in the UK think that a woman's ideal man looks like this...
Judging by the results of the research, men once again proved that they have no idea what women really want.
... but all ladies want is just a nice "boy next door."
In reality, women in the UK lust over Prince Harry's smile and comedian James Corden's hair, research says.
The image below is based on the results of the study and compares how men and women see a woman's ideal man side by side.
"Men with well-toned bodies are, initially, regarded as attractive, but it is the man with the little bit of excess flab around the waist who often wins the day," states Jacamo's press release.
The difference between what men think ladies want and what women actually want sheds light on men's body confidence. The study suggests that as many as 62 percent of men in the UK are still persuaded that ladies would rather go for a man with "the gladiator look," and that many men suffer "pangs of anxiety when they fail to match up this image."
Who says body confidence is only women's issue?
