People in romantic relationships, particularly new relationships, are biased in how they perceive their partners.

They view their partners as more attractive than objective reality – something I’ve called the “love-is-blind bias”. This idea of reciprocity may sound very simple, but it has incredibly important implications for all relationships.

But more important than sociodemographics is similarity of values – everything from musical tastes to political orientation.

We’re all motivated to think that our views of the world are right and when someone disagrees with us, we feel uncomfortable in their presence.

They even have sex more often and, apparently, have more orgasms during sex.

But physical attractiveness matters most in the absence of social interaction.

For a start, relationships are stressful and stress can sometimes make us behave in strange ways.

And we bring all bring “baggage” into new relationships, whether it’s preconceived notions of what a relationship should be like or our past experiences with previous partners.

Proximity matters because it increases the chances people will interact and come to feel part of the same “social unit”. People perceived to be physically attractive get asked out on dates more often and receive more messages on online dating sites.In this age of rationality and endless data, intuition is often looked upon as an inferior means of problem-solving. I do not know that I am,” remarked Albert Einstein before his theory of relativity was tested and confirmed as the basis of a new way of looking at the world.Yet in many situations, even in the hard sciences, it is the most useful means of all. The value of intuition is underplayed in many areas of life, nowhere less so than in online dating.Once social interaction takes place, other traits come into their own.

It turns out that both women and men value traits such as kindness, warmth, a good sense of humour, and understanding in a potential partner – in other words, we prefer people we perceive as nice.The Conversation UK receives funding from Hefce, Hefcw, SAGE, SFC, RCUK, The Nuffield Foundation, The Ogden Trust, The Royal Society, The Wellcome Trust, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and The Alliance for Useful Evidence, as well as sixty five university members.
