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.
