Study Shows Women Are Less Likely To Date Men With Cats
Who thinks up all of these studies? And why?!? Scientists at Colorado State University have concluded that women find men less attractive when they’re holding a cat. Seriously.
Scientists showed hundreds of women photos of two men, both men pictured with and without a furry companion. While holding a cat the men fared far worse. The author of the study wrote “Men holding cats were viewed as less masculine; more neurotic, agreeable, and open; and less dateable.”
When shown one of the subjects with no cat, 38% of women said they were likely or very likely to casually date him, while 37% said they’d consider a serious relationship with him.
But a picture of the same man holding a cat dropped the numbers to 33% for each category.
A total of 708 women aged between 18 and 24 were surveyed in the online experiment.
