We all have a type, which says a lot about who we are. Science has proved that. And now, science says that if you’re a dude who prefers his women on the chubbier side, you’re probably a happy fella.

The study’s researchers, Dr. Filemón Alvarado and Dr. Edgardo Morales, believed that “chubby women make their men ten times as happy as thin women” and set out to determine if their hypothesis was true.

They found that men who are dating or are married to “chubby” women are indeed usually happier and more equipped to deal with relationship problems than those who are involved with skinnier women.

The reasoning? The study claims that thin women have a tendency to be more reserved, are not as friendly and are less emotionally expressive, which means they’re a lot less fun to be around.

Further, researchers found that women with more to love are better at figuring out what their partners will need in the future, have better survival skills, and usually have more kids “because they are accustomed to carrying heavy weight, so a baby does not make a difference.”

I’ll be the first to admit that this study seems a little… subjective and, um, occasionally offensive. But, aside from that, it sorta makes sense. So to each his own, right?
