women: September 2010 Archives

The 'modern gentleman' is now expected to text regularly and put the rubbish out rather than lay his coat down in a puddle or open doors, it's been found.

A recent survey discovered a combination of hectic modern lifestyles and technology have dramatically changed women's perception of what makes a true gent.
Other age-old traditions which are now all but dead are always paying for dinner and walking on the side of the pavement nearest to the road.
These have been apparently been replaced by bringing his partner a cup of tea in bed and looking after her if she has a hangover.
Another duty which is said to be expected of a modern gentleman is to let his partner watch her favourite soaps… which makes us think the women surveyed were seeing how far they could push it.

Women get better value for money from pairs of jeans than any other item of clothing and they cost on average just 9p per wear, a study has found.

Experts studied every item of an average woman's wardrobe and found that the cost-per-wear ratio for a pair of denims was lower than that of any other piece of regularly worn clothing.

They concluded that the typical pair of jeans, which cost around £40, are worn around 428 times before they are thrown out - which works out as just nine pence every time they are worn.

By comparison, a pair of leggings, which cost an average of just £9.97, will only be worn 68 times before being binned - which averages 15p per wear.

The odd news will no doubt be popular with women who can now buy a new outfit and legitimately claim when asked if it is new, "It only cost 78p".

275x250.jpg Men who exhibit low stress levels are significantly more attractive to women, university researchers have found.

Psychologists at Abertay University took photos of men and measured their hormone levels before producing composite images of faces with low and high stress.

The images were then shown to women who were asked to judge how attractive the guys were - those with low levels of stress were said to be found much more attractive.

In unrelated news, we would just like to take this opportunity to point out how incredibly relaxed we are about the findings... and life in general.

275x250.jpg60% of men in a relationship have ended up in the dog house after buying their other half lingerie which doesn't fit, it has been found.

A survey of 3,000 women discovered millions of blokes have fallen into the trap of buying their partner underwear which is too small.

It was found a similar number of men have accidentally bought lingerie a size too big -- interestingly both mistakes often lead to "Are you saying I'm too fat" argument.

However, the most common complaint was that men buy the 'wrong style' of underwear and only consider what they want to see their wife of girlfriend wearing.

While buying bras which are 'too tarty' was the fourth most common complaint, buying underwear which is 'too frumpy' and 'not tarty enough' are eighth and tenth on the list -- making us wonder who's buying underwear for Goldilocks.

275x250.jpgThe average mum is a master multi-tasker who carries out the roles of 23 different professions, a study has revealed.

Researchers found modern mothers have to be a cleaner, entertainer, chef and accountant, as well as travel agent, teacher and chamber maid.

On top of that they also have to have skills as a first-aider, dog walker, chauffeur and hairdresser.

The study also found the average mum works more than 13 hours a day while the kids are off school, getting out of bed at 7.16am and finally switching off at 8.41pm.

Personally we think moms carry out the duties of 24 different professions…  given the amount of time they spend watching soaps surely they could add TV critic to the list.
