Are Men or Women More Likely to Fall in Love at First Sight? Aired July 18, 2018

Picture it now: You’re walking down the street and catch the gaze of a handsome man. But what’s he thinking? Is he interested? Could it be something deeper?

We *all* think that it’s only women who fall in love at first sight, right?

Well, not so fast, says clinical psychologist Cindy M. Neston. That sexy guy’s simmering look *could* actually be more than just a passing glance.

“I hate to be the one to shake your world, but science shows that men are more likely to fall in love at first sight than women,” says Neston, author of Why Women Have Sex: Understanding Sexual Motivations from Adventure to Revenge.

In her research, Neston surveyed thousands of men and women. She found that men place a greater emphasis on physical attraction, which makes falling in love at first sight a lot easier.

“Women also want information about their humor, their smell, their status, their confidence, all these sorts of things,” Neston explains.

(P.S. Could the color of your clothes make men more attracted to you? We had a viewer test this theory!)
