    Breaking News: Women are attracted to wealth and status!

    Well, not actually breaking news. Savoy explained it in Magic Bullets pretty well, but now there is a study that backs up some of the attraction switches:

    Women more attracted to men in expensive cars - Telegraph

    Not really news, but still amusing and interesting

    The university team showed women pictures of the same man sitting in two cars - a 70,000 silver Bentley Continental and a battered Ford Fiesta.
    Pretty stupid study in my opinion. Obviously they would choose the guy in a 70,000 dollar car over the same guy in a beat up car.

    If I showed a group of women two pictures of the same guy; in one picture he has crap smeared on his chest but in the other he has it smeared on his face and inside his mouth and told them to choose the one that was most attractive I'm sure they'd select the guy with it smeared on his chest. That doesn't mean that women are attracted to men who have shit all over their chest it's just saying in that scenario it's better.

    A good study would have shown the results of a guy who's like a 5-6 in a bentley and a guy who's a 9-10 in an old beat up ford.

    Which one gets your attention more, a sportscar or a classic car? I guess classic cars would be considered expensive because it can be an expensive hobby. Which is why most successful guys will own a sports car and a classic car.

    Well, if you are rich and handsome you really do need less game. The more natural disqualifiers you have the harder you have to work for success. That's just life in general.

    There was a show on the Discovery channel that did this, except with salaries. They had a random sample of women rate pictures of men, standard 1-10 rating. Then they added a salary to it and had a different group rate the men. The guy who had gotten at 8 was given a 25,000 a year salary and was rated a 4. The guy who had gotten a 4 was given a 300,000 a year salary and was rated an 8.

    I think it was called Science of Attraction.

    Not only a good point but presented in a pretty damn entertaining way...

    I agree with BY. However, I think a lot of women would have picked the 5-6 bentley. Its not rocket science that women prefer status and money over looks.

    The thing is, a lot of women, at least where Im from are pretty car stupid. I drive a Mazda 3, which is a nice mid range car. For the price that i purchased my car for, I could have also purchased an older BMW (that looks nice and sporty but has done close to 200,000kms), an imported toyota Supra(drool), or a Merc.

    Second, in our society, the kind of car you drive, doesnt determine how much money you have. Anyone with a job can take out a loan and buy an expensive car to look good. The kind of women (and ive met a few of these) that go gaga over someones car alone, are usually very low value women.

    "The researchers say the men tested in the same way are not impressed by whatever car a woman drives because they judge purely on her face and figure."

    Rubbish, a girl in a hot car is hotter. I'm more attracted, maybe deep down its cos I know that on at least one level they have their shit together.

    That said I dont have a driving license, get my next test in a couple of weeks. Dont need a car but want to drive and know it will make me far more attractive to girls.

    "Dr Dunn admitted that his research could also be interpreted as evidence that women are shallower than men. He said: "Let's face it - there's evidence to support it."

    I love this guy even if he does drive an old Ford Ka

    lol @ Letch
    I think you just want it to be rubbish. If you saw a HB10 in an old beetle who was willing to take you home..and a HB5 in a BMW, i really highly doubt you'd go home with the HB5.
