It is reported that a survey has shown that most women prefer a man of average attractiveness as their partner, while most men prefer a super-attractive wife.
If you are female and you can,
Choose any kind of partner man,
Then one would think, I would have thought,
That you would want to choose the sort,
Of man that’s rated pretty high,
By other females passing by.
So … maybe … out of ten, a nine?
Which means he would be in his prime?
But, in fact, I would not be right,
For your preferred man, day or night,
Is for some Mr Average who,
Is scoring only three times two.
The reason for this, I can see,
Is that you really fancy me!
But on a more pragmatic note,
It’s ’cos the other girls would gloat,
And they might try most every day,
To steal your lover right away.
But if you are a man, it’s said,
The woman that you’d like to wed,
Is one with a much higher score,
At whom most men would gaze in awe.
For what men like to have, it seems,
Is really the girl of their dreams,
And they’re prepared to take the risk,
That over lunch of lobster bisque,
Some other man might hove in view,
And steal the woman off them too.
So when you’re choosing, take your pick,
But don’t have any Tom or Dick,
’Cos for the one you want to marry,
You might be better off with Harry!
