women: June 2010 Archives

275x250.jpgResearchers claim women are more likely to agree to a date with a man if they've been listening to romantic music before he asks.

The French boffins (yes, they even research romance) set up a scenario where 87 women each met an 'average' looking man as background music played.

He then asked them out on a date and it was found those women who'd been listening to 'Je l'aime à mourir' by Francis Cabrel were significantly more likely to say yes.

52% of those listening to romantic music say yes to the date compared with 28% who had been listening to 'neutral' tunes.

In odd news there is now a French psychologist with a very busy social life -- by our reckoning he now has 32 dates lined up.

A study discovered the average woman moan at their man for  more than two-and-a-half hours a week about helping out around the house and cutting back on booze.

That works out to a total of around 11 hours a month - the equivalent of five-and-a-half days a year or more than one working week.

Not helping to tidy the house emerged as the most common bug-bear for a woman to nag about, followed by not doing the dishes.

Other common complaints included spending too much money, not being romantic enough… and not listening when they are busy nagging.

The 'Go Blonde' event, now in its second year, aims to bolster national spirits during the recession and make men people forget their economic blues.

Organisers say seeing blonde women parade through the city takes peoples mind off the dire economic situation in the Baltic state. Other events during the two-day festival included concerts and a Marilyn Monroe look-alike competition.

But the parade of 800 blondes wearing pink and high-heels was the main attraction for men… and source of annoyance from brunette women in Latvia.
