If Your Man Has Brown Eyes, There’s Something You Should Know

ben flajnikLike staring into the warm brown eyes of your lover? Enjoy a man with rich, chocolaty peepers, do you? Think those blue-eyed guys are losers? Well, hate to break it to you, but you've got it all wrong. Guys with brown eyes have been deceiving us for years, says science, and it's time we take back the power.

A study conducted in the Czech Republic found that women perceived men with brown eyes to be more trustworthy than their light-eyed counterparts. They argue that there's something inherently more baby-faced about men with brown eyes (they generally have bigger mouths, broader chins, bigger noses, and more prominent eyebrows than blue-eyed guys), which makes them appear younger, which makes them seem cheerful, which makes them seem like good guys to whom you can open up.

Don't be fooled -- it's all just an illusion. They're not more trustworthy than light-eyed guys, they just seem like they are. It's a lie.

I mean, Bachelor Ben Flajnik has brown eyes and so does Bachelor Jason Mesnick, and we all know how those guys turned out -- one fell for the black widow and one epically changed his mind. Everyone thought they were so sweet and so genuine. Nope.

So be warned, ladies -- you might be under an evolutionary spell when you fall for a man with brown eyes. To find out if he's as trustworthy as his eye color conveys, a simple background check will do.

If you don't have access to police records, then, well, you're just going to have to see how the relationship pans out like all those other girls who date blue-eyed dudes.

Do you prefer men with brown eyes?

Eye color isn't important to me. It's only blond-haired men I can't stand.

My parents both have brown eyes but I have blue eyes. My type has always been dark hair and light eyes. I am not a fan of brown eyes.

(Lol, dirtiekittie!). I do like dark eyes on guys, but fell in love with a guy with blue eyes.

LoL green actually.

I have no eye color preference. Just find this whole idea to be really silly.

Eye color is not a huge deal, of course, but brown does happen to be my favorite. I attribute that to my childhood. My dad was the unstable, wild, insane parent who'd go off screaming and punching walls and who was very self-absorbed, and my mom was the calm, reasonable, compassionate parent who always took time to listen to us and do special things with us (they divorced when I was 5; I have no idea how she tolerated the man for 9 years). My dad has green eyes, like me, but my mom's are dark brown. I think I just learned to sort of associate that eye color with calm and love and stability. Of course that doesn't mean everyone with brown eyes is like that (duh), but I think that's why they're my favorite.
