Share this article Share The study by relationship website eHarmony looked at the words used in more than 12, profiles to chart changes in what people search for in a potential partner. The study suggests men increasingly looking for ‘ambitious’ women, while women are much more likely to be seeking ‘intelligent’ men than in previous years. New entries to the top 10 words in men’s profiles are ‘articulate’ and ‘intelligent’ while, for women’s profiles, ‘rational’, ‘creative’, ‘energetic’ and ‘perceptive’ all enter the top The study suggests what women and men look for in potential partners has changed significantly in the last two years. While the description ‘sweet’ would attract the most male attention for women in , it’s now been pushed into third place, with ‘ambitious’ taking the top spot. Yet for men the word ‘ambitious’ has become less popular Researchers found that a number of words have fallen out of favour with the opposite sex since , while others have risen to prominence. As well as ambition overtaking sweetness, the phrase ‘hardworking’ has gone from the ninth most popular word to the fourth. While women were more receptive to the words ‘perceptive’ ‘spontaneous’ and ‘outgoing’ than they were two years ago, the word ‘physically fit’ remains the biggest turn on. In terms of the words that singles should change in their profiles, ‘funny’ doesn’t have the same appeal it did two years ago, falling out of the top 10 words for both sexes. Using the right language is important, with figures showing men using the phrase ‘physically fit’ in their profile receive almost double the number of messages compared to an average profile – an average increase of 96 per cent.

Controversy[ edit ] Anthropologist Helen Fisher in What happens in the dating world can reflect larger currents within popular culture. For example, when the book The Rules appeared, it touched off media controversy about how men and women should relate to each other, with different positions taken by New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd  and British writer Kira Cochrane of The Guardian. Sara McCorquodale suggests that women meeting strangers on dates meet initially in busy public places, share details of upcoming dates with friends or family so they know where they’ll be and who they’ll be with, avoid revealing one’s surname or address, and conducting searches on them on the Internet prior to the date.
Don’t leave drinks unattended; have an exit plan if things go badly; and ask a friend to call you on your cell phone an hour into the date to ask how it’s going.

This has changed over the past few decades because of the dramatic advances in digital imaging technologies and computer power. One of the best examples of this was the computer artistry of Ray Downing, whose digital re-creation of Jesus based on the Shroud was documented in “The Real Face of Jesus” program that appeared on the History Channel. In the past few years, digital artists around the world have been able to render their own interpretations of how Jesus may have appeared based on the Shroud and these show up from time to time on the internet.
However, throughout all those years, not one artist has attempted to create an interpretation of what Mary, Mother of Jesus looked like based on the Shroud image. Until now, that is. In July of my good friends Bill and Belenna Lauto directed me to the website of digital artist Dean Packwood in Taupo, New Zealand and shared his beautiful, photorealistic rendition of Mary, Mother of Jesus with me. Dean chose the Shroud of Turin image as the structural basis for his truly beautiful, completely digital artwork and I wanted to share it with you.
So I sent Dean a request for permission to include his painting here on our website and he graciously agreed to share it with us. What is most exciting to watch is the time-lapse video 3:
