It isn’t surprising that when it comes to love, people with downer dispositions are about as appealing as lepers. But a new study reveals that being playful is actually the most attractive personality trait for both males and females. Researchers surveyed 250 college kids and found that “sense of humor” (duh), “fun-loving” (obviously) and “playful” (hmm) were the most desired traits in a mate.
Scientists said that playfulness in men could show a woman he’s “nonaggressive and less likely to harm offspring,” while for men, playfulness in women was a sign of youth and fertility. So go for it: Break out the Legos on the first date and see what happens. [Source]
