Remember that idea that modern women are really looking for those soft and sensitive pajama-boy types? This study blows that straight to Hell.
Most ladies, when they see a pussy in that dating photo, keep on scrolling by. We mean that cat, in case that needs clarification. Ladies who are out there, hopin’ and scopin’ just don’t get a masculine vibe from dudes holding a feline in their photo.
And this may come as a shock to some people. There are still a lot of ladies out there that prefer to date someone more manly than they are.
Women looking for romance on dating apps perceive are less likely to swipe right if their potential suitor is holding a cat, according to new research.
The study, carried out by scientists at the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, at Colorado State University, found that profile photos of men holding cats were seen as ‘less dateable’ and ‘less masculine’ by many women.
Men who held a confident pose and appeared alone in their profile pic were more likely to attract women, the survey found.
Straight women, aged between 18 and 24, living in the US, were asked to rate the same man posing with and without a cat on his lap.
Photos of two men, both in their early twenties, were shown to the group. Both prospective dates had dark hair, wore a blue buttoned down shirt and were photographed against a white background while posing with and without the same tabby cat.
What were the ladies’ impressions of the guys?
The bro with the cat was perceived as ‘less manly’ and ‘less datable’ both short term and long term. Cat-dude was also seen as more neurotic.
Single guys: if you DO have a cat at home, don’t cuddle him in the photo for that dating app.
