Why do women prefer dark eyes?

Looking at the evolution of our eye colors and the importance behind it, Dr. Alexander Lapa, a psychiatrist at the Ocean Recovery Center, said that historically darker eyes have been more attractive.

‘Our early Homo sapiens ancestors are known to have originated closer to the equator in present-day central Africa.’ Dr. Lapa said.

‘Being so close to the equator meant exposure to high-intensity UV light. According to natural selection, consistently harmful UV rays meant those with more melanin and, as a result, darker skin and eyes were likely to live longer; Increased chances of survival into adulthood and therefore the possibility of reproduction, passing on dark characteristics to their offspring.

‘It strengthened darker skin, hair and eyes within the gene pool.’

why do men like blue eyes

He said of light eye colours: ‘Cultural factors often dictate the collective consciousness of what is deemed attractive. Generally, blonde hair and blue eyes were highly valued and often emphasized and portrayed in the media.

‘While we all have our own specific preferences, we are often subject to the conditioning that is perceived as socially attractive. The recent rise in the popularity of social media has kept it going even more.

We are attracted to the same colored eyes as our parents

‘Some previous studies have suggested that we are attracted to people with similar physical traits to our parents or even ourselves. This may include prioritizing eye color that is similar,’ said sex and relationship expert Ness Cooper.

‘While research on this is still limited, it may be that we tend to prefer eye colors similar to those of caregivers, due to the bonding that occurs through hormonal release when we are younger. Cause genetic family and preference rather than direct link of the eyes.’

Chris Plein, a relationship expert at datingscout.co.uk, agreed: ‘We all have a certain type that we’re attracted to. We are usually attracted to people who are like us, or who remind us of our loved ones.

‘The hormones responsible for attraction are activated when the other person has produced some resemblance or resemblance to the people we love in our lives.’

Sexual tension manifests through the eyes

Chris also claimed that ‘the eyes are the most expressive feature of the face’ and are often considered attractive because they are a way of telling if someone is sexually attracted to you.

He said, ‘You can tell if a person is sad, happy, honest or lying with their eyes. ‘This is one of the reasons why it makes such an impact when it comes to attraction.

‘It also helps a lot in creating sexual tension. Just by looking at a person’s eyes, you can get an indication whether mutual attraction is possible as well as emotional compatibility.’
