London, Dec 5 : Ladies, if you want to know if the man of your dreams will be faithful, look him in the jaw...or the chin or forehead. Research shows that women are able to judge a man’s fidelity simply by studying his face, the Daily Mail reported.
Signs of a male who is prone to cheating include classic masculine features, such as a wide, angular jaw, a square chin and a prominent brow.
Women with wandering eye, however, can rest easy, as the study showed men to be poor at reading female faces.
The finding comes from Australian researchers who began by recruiting almost 200 volunteers and photographing them.
The men and women were also asked how attractive they thought they were and whether they had cheated when in a relationship in the past.
They were also asked about poaching - or embarking on an affair with someone who was already in a relationship, the Mail said.
The study’s co-author, Professor Leigh Simmons, said that females may have become better at the task because they have more to lose if their lover leaves them holding the baby.
