A recent study revealed what men really want in a woman. The ideal woman is not the blonde bombshell a la Marilyn Monroe.  The Daily Mail says that the most desirable woman is not what you’d think.

The idea that skinny blondes are ideal doesn’t hold true anymore. Social networking site Badoo recently polled 2,000 men to find out what the ideal woman looks like.

As it turns out, the most desirable woman is a dark-haired beauty with blue eyes and an “average” body. Megan Fox has 2 out of the 3 traits men desire, as does Angelina Jolie.  However, neither lady is curvy enough.

The results of the poll, as seen in The Daily Mail, say that 40% of men prefer blue eyes over brown, green, and hazel.  33% say brown hair reigns over blonde, black, and ginger. Average-sized girls wearing sizes 8-10 here in the US are preferred by 39% over curvy, skinny, and full-figured women.

This is good news for those with the “girl-next-door” look.  Magazines are full of thin, blonde models.  It’s nice to know that men prefer more realistic looking women.
