In Those Genes

Chances are, when you’ve got a busy Facebook profile and a couple of Jewish friends, you have probably seen the Buzzfeed post”What Famous Nice Jewish Boy Is Your Soulmate? ” Though Paul Rudd will always have my heart, I have ta admit that there is far more to finding that perfect someone than your favorite bagel and Yiddish word. In actuality, lots of this crazy game of love is based on our evolutionary instincts to make beautiful and healthy children.

While somebody’s interests and other behaviours may keep you wanting more, lots of that first impression is based on genetics. Plenty of research has covered this subject, and here are some of the most common decisions:

Symmetry is Essential

Both women and men rate those of the opposite sex with symmetrical features as more attractive than those who lack that high level of symmetry. Why? Because symmetry signals an perfect mate with strong healthful genetics, and higher odds of healthy children. To put it differently, our motions are calculated by our desire to replicate and have wholesome, awesome babies.

Hips Don’t Lie

According to a 2004 study, men seek a waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) range of 0.67 to 1.18, while women find a 0.8 to 1.0 WHR in guys to be perfect. But why is that a big deal? This attribute subconsciously informs a lower risk of diseases including cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes, and, as anticipated, pregnancy obstacles.


Women and men’s faces naturally form differing shapes, which provide an indication of fertility. For men, testosterone may cause a bigger and lower face, a rocky jawline, and a well-defined brow. Estrogen has unique effects also, causing shorter and smaller faces, and not as prominent brows, allowing for a stronger focus on a woman’s eyes.

You Can Smell It

Yes, scientists have discovered that more symmetrical folks often have more appealing scents. And once more, it all boils down to finding the perfect mate.

However, finally, love is extremely effective and can strengthen or reevaluate existing sexual appeal. Successful long-term couples exhibit qualities of fidelity, devotion, and show signs of effective parenting.

So while finding that ideal loyal Jewish partner to bring home to bubbe and zeyde might be difficult, it is helpful to know that the health of your upcoming family is not determined by initial attraction. Here at JScreen we are proud to screen people to learn their carrier risk for more than 80 diseases, including those most common in {} with Jewish ancestry.

By simply making the decision to get screened, you are making a massive leap toward getting healthy children in your future.

So don’t give up on this search yet for your ideal special someone, and keep dreaming about these perfectly cute Jewish babies. Paul Rudd may already be taken, but there are loads of incredible eligible bachelors and bachelorettes out there waiting.
