Feeling confident, healthy and attractive are the keys to a happy relationship.

4. The number-one way to feel irresistible is through a healthy lifestyle. Sixty percent of all respondents chose leading a healthy lifestyle as the activity that helps them feel most beautiful/attractive—the most popular answer for this category. For men, "having sex" came in at #2 and "spending quality time with your significant other" at #3. Curiously, women too, listed "spending quality time" at #3, but it was "buying a new outfit/accessories" that landed at #2 for the ladies, with "having sex" at #6.

5. Our weight/fitness level matters more to our self-esteem than our relationships. Yes, you read that correctly—women ranked "weight/fitness level" as the most influential factor affecting their self-esteem, while men interestingly reported the state of their relationships to be the most influential. Check out the complete lists below, from most to least important:

 

Women:

  • My weight/fitness level
  • The state of my relationship
  • Feeling balanced/spiritually connected
  • The state of my friendships
  • My activities/hobbies
  • Career/job success/income
  • What I'm wearing

Men:

  • The state of my relationship
  • My weight/fitness level
  • My activities/hobbies
  • Feeling balanced/spiritually connected
  • The state of my friendships
  • Career/job success/income
  • What I'm wearing

 

6. Our self-esteems could use a boost. Only 12 percent of women surveyed said they have "high" self-esteem. Though 39 percent called it "mostly good," the remainder acknowledged they have low self-esteem or that there's "room for improvement"—making it clear that a large segment of women could benefit from those aforementioned esteem-boosting activities!

7. The eyes have it. When asked to choose their favorite body part/feature, the greatest percentage of men and women—40 percent—chose "eyes," followed by their lips/smile. When asked which body part they like least, women reported disliking their legs the most, then arms. Men chose "hair," then "nose."
