宠物对异性让你热吗

发布日期:2018-09-22 作者:admin

A University of Nevada team, led by anthropologist Peter Gray, tested several hypotheses about pets and contemporary courtship or dating rituals。 Their study will appear in a forthcoming issue of the journal Anthrozoös。

Evolutionary psychology holds that women are more inclined to allocate resources to child rearing, while men tend to spend more time and energy on mating。 The team wanted to verify if these tenants hold their own in a real life setting —; if for example, women are more responsive to the way their dates treat their pets and men inclined to use their pets to attract ***ual partners。 Gray and his colleagues predicted that dogs, generally thought to require more attention than cats, would provide more powerful ques to women who would unconsciously size-up their date’;s parenting qualities。

In collaboration with the pet store chain PetSmart and Match。com, the researchers sent a 21 question on-line survey to 1,210 single pet owners, 60% of whom were women and 40% men。 As far as pets go, some 72% of them were dog owners, and 42% reported to owning a cat。

The study found that:

  • 22% of the men —; but only 6% of women —; admitted they had used their pet to attract potential dates。
  • 35% percent of women and 26% of men said they had been more attracted to someone because they owned a pet。
  • Nearly half of the women and a quarter of the men said they judged dates based on how the person responded to their pet。
  • 76% of women and 60% of men evaluated dates based on whether their pets like the person。
  • 64% of women and 49% of men said they were more attracted to a person if they owned a rescue animal。
  • 75% of the women and 54% of the men said they would not date someone who did not like pets。
