Finally, I asked each of them to ‘describe a beautiful woman’ and ‘describe the kind of woman you would want to marry’. Surprisingly enough, for each of these open questions, the answers among most of the men were the same:

Almost all of them stated that a beautiful woman is “someone who takes care of herself and embraces her own unique beauty.”
