  • Study on 108 heterosexual college students shows that, in a speed-dating setting, beauty is the largest predictor of attraction.
  • Physical attractiveness was the strongest predictor of attraction for both sexes - not security or emotional attachment.
  • The study was limited, but provides inspiration for future research to discover the process that governs romantic attraction.
