I recently stumbled across a fun little test whilst browsing the web not too long ago. Yeah, it may seem a little shallow but it is very accurate and a good timewaster, I suppose. Here is a sample of my results if anyone is interested:
Your photo choices suggest a man over 30 is probably getting a little old for your tastes
You seemed interested in dating a man at least 25 or older
Sharp, narrow chins
Narrow and pointed "triangular" faces
So-called "Ectomorphs," or thin angular faces
Many of the features you found attractive are common among men described as "Mediterranean Hotties." Their olive complexions and dark hair make them hard to resist. You especially liked the handsome, yet warm and approachable looking men with these features. Men from Italian, Greek, or Continental Spanish descent are popular among over 40% of women.
Another of the "looks" that you consistently noticed has been described as "Ruggedly Handsome." These men usually have strong, angular faces and "chiseled" features. Forget small button noses! You like men with strong, manly noses, balanced with an equally prominent chin. A tan and weathered look further adds to their overall impression of masculinity. Only 1 in 10 women (9%) are uniquely drawn to this type of man over a more traditional mainstream type.
Favorite Face Type
You especially liked a pattern scientists refer to as "Ectomorphs." Geometrically, they are similar to triangles, because they are widest at the cheekbones and then narrow to a relatively pointed chin. Ectomorph men are said to have "angular" features, including a chiseled nose and prominent cheekbones. Historically, these faces have been viewed as distinguished and were often found on European royalty. These men also tend to have lean builds. [And, you may want to watch out for those ears, since on true Ectomorphs, they tend to stick out a good bit.] About 22% of other women especially prefer this face.
There is a lot more in the detailed report and it is free, but you have to get an account (also free).
