Millennials Prefer Intelligence Above Looks: Survey

Intelligence above looks for millennials, reveals OkCupid survey

Do you think looks precede intelligence? Well, millennials find intelligence way more appealing than looks, according to a survey.

According to the data gathered from users of dating app OkCupid, 83 per cent women and 79 per cent men find intelligence way more appealing than looks.

When it comes to the kind of relationship they want, 72 per cent believe that traditional gender roles, such as men being heads of households and not house-husbands, or women taking care of chores and children or changing their names, have no place in their lives now.

Another finding points out that 89 per cent of users will choose to be with a partner in a serious relationship even if they can’t have children. As many as 68 per cent of the users says that they don’t believe marriage is mandatory for two people in love.
