Look At My Face - Not My Body

It's a scientific fact: when men are interested in a long term relationship, they subconsciously select women with pretty faces.

When they are only thinking short term - very short term (as in tonight, and tonight only) they focus more on her body.

According to the report, although many cues regarding a woman's health and fertility can be gleamed from her face and her body, each component conveys a subset of cues that are not conveyed by the other component; mainly that a woman's face provides relatively richer information regarding her reproductive value, and conversely that a woman's body conveys stonger cues to her reproductive fertility.

They also conclude that a woman's body advertises sexual maturity, and that her face advertises youth.
