[Best Pick] Why Men Like Girls With Big Eyes

Hey guys! Welcome back to [Best Pick]!


According to several university studies, research has shown that men generally find larger eyes on women more attractive.

The perceived attractiveness of larger eyes has led to a growing trend (especially in Asia) of women using cosmetics and contact lenses with larger limbal rings in an attempt to create the illusion of larger eyes. Many have even done this permanently through cosmetic surgery.

Here are some reasons why a man like girls with big eyes.

1. As a better ‘mate’

Larger eyes are a sign of higher levels of estrogen. Women that have higher levels of estrogen will be more successful and have an easier time conceiving than women with lower levels. This means that women with larger eyes will be seen as a better ‘mate’.


2. Be younger than they really are

Since human eyes do not grow in size during its development relative to the rest of the body, the size of the eye relative to the face decreases as we grow. This means that babies have larger eyes compared to older children and adults. As a consequence, people who have large eyes are often perceived to be younger than they really are. Since perceived youth of a mate is also a sign of fertility, men tend to prefer women with neotenous features, like large eyes.


3. Sexual Selection

It’s thanks to something that happens in evolution called Fisherian runaway selection. Fisherian selection suggests that, when one sex prefers mates with certain genetic traits, then, through the process of sexual selection, the other sex will come to possess the trait in increasingly exaggerated forms. This same process occurs with men’s preference for women with neotenous features.


Bonus Facts:

By the age of 7 years old our eyes are fully developed and are physiologically the same as adult’s eyes.

You blink 15,000 times each day (and by reading this, you were very likely made aware of your own blinking)
