Usually, we all think that people who like animals are naturally likable. When we think of people who love animals, we all think they are kind and compassionate. We will feel that they are very popular in life and top dating apps. Unfortunately, emitting this aura obviously depends on which animal we're talking about. As a new study from the University of Colorado shows that single men don't do well with cats on tinder dating apps. People were shocked when the research results came out.
According to the university, they found single men are less popular especially on Tinder hookup apps. They took different photos. One was a man without cat. One was a man with cat. Then, straight women aged 18 to 24 were shown pictures of the same person in their age group. In one of the photos, he took a group photo with a tiger spotted cat. The women were then asked to rate the men in the two photos, while the men holding the cat consistently scored lower in all areas.
About 1400 people participated in the study. Among them, 30 percent of women thought that men with cats in their personal photos were considered less popular in life. They all think this boy is not very popular with girls on the top hookup site. At the same time, they also felt that the boy was not manly. Although the boy looks amiable, the girl thinks the man with masculinity is more attractive on the bumble dating site. At the same time, 35% of girls thought the boy might be eccentric. Girls don't want to make do with boys' temper. Therefore, we all think that this boy's online chatting site may get less attention.
This research runs counter to people's inherent ideas. But it's not a bad thing to upload photos with cat on local dating sites. Most girls also admit that the photo of the man with cat makes him look more open and easy-going. The women also admitted that he looked more confident and outgoing than when he didn't have a cat. Although self-confidence and extroversion are not the first factors to attract women, this behavior is not completely wrong.
It is worth noting that these findings are influenced by the self-identity. And those feelings indicates that American culture has distinguished' cat men 'as less masculine. And may have created a cultural study of the preference of most heterosexual women in the age group for "dog men". In other words, most people think cat describes girls and dogs describes boys. Although these statements are outrageous, they are inseparable from the social values of the United States. These findings suggest that pets continue to play a role in women's mate selection and dating preferences. However, it is necessary to carefully study the impact of different types of pets. Some experts start to learn from this study and get to know some ways to be popular online.
Some experts indicate that male users can add photos with cats on the best dating sites, too. But it is not on the avatar. In other words, it’s better to add photos with no cats as the first photo but the last. On the one hand, the profile can show this guy is cool. And then, on the other hand, the photo with cats last can make this guy careful. If they use this method in a good way, male users can do better on the random dating site.
This study also shows that men with cats may be considered as bad tempered. This result can be annoying but in the today’s US, everything reflects the society. We hope in the near future, the gap and stereotype between women and men can disappear. And then,more and more people can find value.
The university says they will make more people know their study in the near future. Then, in the end, people can have equal thoughts among animals and more caring for them. Although they come to the conclusion but they hope it can be a start to help more people. No matter female or male users on the anonymous dating site, we cannot judge a person by animals.
