Time to change your profile pic. A new study found women find men less attractive if THEY’RE into cats. Researchers at Colorado State University took photos of various men: one by themselves, and one of them holding a cat. Then over 700 women rated the photos. And when men were holding cats, they were seen as less masculine AND less datable. It applied to both short-term and long-term relationship potential.
So they were less datable across the board. And they were seen as “more neurotic” when holding a cat. There was one key demographic that didn’t care though. Women who described themselves as a “cat person” were just as likely to say a guy was datable, whether he was holding a cat or not. In other words, it didn’t hurt their chances with women who love cats. But it also didn’t help.
