Should You Buy Flashy Toys to Attract Women?

In a social science study, we learn that driving a sports car may attract women interested in short-term relationships, but not marriage:

According to the researchers, women found a man who chose to purchase a flashy luxury product (such as a Porsche) more desirable than the same man who purchased a non-luxury item (such as a Honda Civic). However, there was a catch: Although women found the flashy guys more desirable for a date, the man with the Porsche was not preferred as a marriage partner. Women inferred from a man’s flashy spending that he was interested in uncommitted sex.

That said, you’re probably not going to experience very much satisfaction knowing that women are attracted to you for your things. It’s much more satisfying to know that women are attracted to you because of something more internal about yourself, like your intelligence, humor and wit.

One thought on “Should You Buy Flashy Toys to Attract Women?”

  1. Very true but I think it probably helps if you are ostensibly attractive enough in the first place for them to show an initial interest in you. Great article, I enjoyed it!
