Psychological Analysis of Why Charlie McDonnell is attractive to teenage girls.
(Sociobiological Theory and Evolutionary Theory)
These ideas do kind of make the assumption that we want to have children with Charlie, which even though we don't think it we all subconsciously want if we find him attractive.
Reason One: Height.
Charlie's height is five foot, eleven inches. According to the research into the Sociobiological and Evolutionary theories for the formation of relationships, women of a heterosexual nature tend to prefer be more attracted to men who are taller than they are. The average height for Charlie's main audience of teenage girls (American and English) is around 5' 5" at least six inches shorter than Charlie.
Reason Two: Assets. (No, not that kind of asset; I have no idea about any part of Charlie's body that he keeps hidden, thank you.)
Even though it is rightfully unknown, it is fairly simple to determine from ownership of certain relatively expensive computer products namely Apple and the fact that he lives in a flat in London, that he is "well-off". Granted, the flat is shared with best friend Alex Day, but the point still stands; living costs in London are the highest in the country. According to the Sociobiological and Evolutionary theories, women tend to look for, and be attracted to, partners who are able to support them and their offspring. This does however contradict how the fan-girls are attracted to Charlie, as he doesn't have the resources highlighted by the evolutionary theory or, to paraphrase, muscles.
Reason Three: Genetics.
The evolutionary/SB theories highlight that both men and women subconsciously look for healthy skin, glossy/soft hair, and healthy teeth in order to pass those traits onto their offspring. In Charlie's case he has soft-looking clean hair, and a deep colour eyes that would usually show a dominant gene, but as his eyes are actually blue a recessive gene this also makes him even more attractive. Blue and green eyes are seen as attractive by others both because they are aesthetically striking in comparison to darker colours, and because they are more unusual. Despite the fact that his smile is slightly off-centre, Charlie's teeth are very straight and strong-looking which is another point on the SBT and Evolutionary theory level. In terms of his facial structure, Charlie's jaw line is almost angular, which shows masculinity and a sort-of physiological maturity. His relatively high/well formed cheekbones also show this.
Reason Four: Intellect.
Though he never went, and does not show an interest in going, to University, previous videos show that Charlie is fairly intelligent; again linking with the suggestion that women look for resources. Humans would never have evolved without intelligence, and so women are more likely to go for intelligence due to the Evolutionary theory, and the subconscious hope that the intelligence will be passed on genetically into our offspring. Charlie's musical abilities also contribute to this, showing that he has a brain that is a good balance of both left, and right. It also shows that he has good hand-eye co-ordination and, furthermore, motor skills.
Reason Five: Age.
A majority of Charlie's extensive female fan base tend to be younger than he is. As the SBT suggests, backed up by various research, women tend to much prefer men who are older than they are by at least two years. This may be something to do with social and sexual maturity.
Reason Six: Lifestyle.
Partaking in similar activities to his fan base also encourages attraction. The main factor of YouTube, especially, as a majority of Charlie's watchers will have an account in order to subscribe to him. The nerdy attribute is also shared by most of Charlie's fan girls. Similarity in interests promotes seeing attractiveness within others because of consideration of a future relationship with that person, and also how well they can relate to them problem sharing, etc. How a relationship will last, and its success, is usually based on matching interests, and sharing opinions on life-changing beliefs (Religion, etc).
