Davo found an article (to prove a point to me) about the relationship between a couple’s perceptions of each other’s (and their own) physical attractiveness – [article]. When reading it, a few issues occurred to me – whether one can trust people to tell the truth, whether it is plausible to expect people to rate themselves or their partners honestly (particularly when there might be a difference in attractiveness between them) and whether or not the graphs representing changes in perceived attractiveness over time are more representative of generational differences than the development of any individual relationship. Read and ponder.
