Recent research suggests that who you are on the inside (your personality) is more important than how you look when it comes to catching the eye of that special someone.

We asked 1,177 people what was most important in a romantic partner. Our results clearly showed that when it comes to choosing a long-term partner, most people say personality is most important. That got us wondering: how else does your personality affect your chance at romance?

The Science of Attraction details the findings of our survey and looks at several recent studies examining how personality affects everything from how physically attractive you seem to others to your chances at finding lasting love.
