A Study Finds the Best Pose to Help You Attract People in Online Dating

Whether or not someone swipes right on you on Tinder usually comes down to a matter of SECONDS. They glance at your picture, make an instant judgment, and swipe. So you’d better make that picture count.

A new study out of Princeton University found the best pose for getting dates. And the trick is . . . to spread yourself out.

The researchers found that people who had pictures where they held their arms out to the sides or put their feet on a desk and leaned back with their hands behind their head had more success than people who crossed their arms or kept their arms in tight.

And the difference is significant: People who stretched themselves out in their photos got almost TWICE as many messages as people who closed themselves off.

The researchers say that basically, you’re just like a peacock. Quote, “In the animal world, taking up more space and maximizing presence is used as a signal for attracting a mate.

“By exerting dominance, they’re trying to signal, ‘I am able to do things, I have a space, I have access to resources.”

A new survey found that 70% of us agree money can’t buy happiness . . . but a lot of us would rather be rich than happy ANYWAY.

People were asked if they’d rather find true love, win the lottery, or become famous. And more than HALF went for the money. 58% said they’d rather win the lottery . . . 38% would choose true love . . . and 3% would want to be famous.

But it might be because people feel like they’ve ALREADY found their soul mate . . . 78% of people said they wouldn’t get rid of the person they’re dating or married to for any amount of money.

Meaning 22% WOULD. But it’s not all bad . . . 70% of those people said it would take at least $10 million for them to ditch the person they’re dating or married to.

The survey also found 33% of people would give up their PET to win the lottery . . . including 7% who’d do it for less than ten grand.

And 65% of people say that if they found a winning lottery ticket on the street, they’d cash it in . . . 33% claim they’d try to find the rightful owner . . . and 2% say they’d DESTROY it. (???)
