Cat lovers are going to hate this study. Researchers recently had people judge how attractive strangers were by looking at pictures of them with different PETS. And having a DOG makes you seem much sexier than having a cat.
The sexiest pet to have if you’re a man is a PUPPY. People thought guys were 24% sexier when they were holding a puppy . . . 14% more trustworthy . . . 7% smarter . . . and 14% more attractive overall.
Cats only made guys 5% sexier. Kittens had even LESS of an effect, at 4%.
Once that puppy grows up, it won’t have much of an effect though. Small and medium dogs only made guys 3% sexier, and large dogs only gave them a 2% boost. But overall, guys were seen as slightly more attractive with dogs than cats.
If you’re a WOMAN, the sexiest pet to have is a MEDIUM-SIZED DOG. They made women seem 7% sexier . . . 7% more trustworthy . . . 6% smarter . . . and 7% more attractive overall.
Posing with a cat actually made women slightly LESS sexy, and kittens basically had no effect. Puppies gave women a 3% boost in sexiness . . . small dogs, 4% . . . and large dogs, 3%.

Why say no when you can say yes? : taco bell, mild sauce. Image Credit: Flickr| torbakhopper
Taco Bell is generous, and not just because they’ll give you six days’ worth of calories for about nine bucks. They’re generous because if you ask them for hot sauce, they’ll give you a huge handful of packets. They’re good people.
But their reckless sauce distribution strategy backfired earlier this month. A woman went through the Taco Bell drive-thru in South Euclid, Ohio and asked for some mild sauce.
Unfortunately, the store was totally out and only had the FIRE sauce left.
And the woman was so angry that she wouldn’t move out of the drive-thru line until they either gave her a 50% discount or found her some damn mild sauce.
The employees wound up calling the cops and they diffused the situation before it could escalate and got the woman to leave. She said she’d be back the next day to talk to the manager, but we don’t know if she followed through.

Are you wondering if your boyfriend is marriage material? Here’s a hint: If he’s ever said, “Wow, I sure do hate your mom” . . . then no, he’s not.
A new study out of the University of Michigan just found that married couples are happier if the guy has a good relationship with his wife’s parents. It’s much less important for the woman to get along with her husband’s parents.
The researchers think it’s because an adult woman tends to be closer to her parents than a man, so when her husband likes them, that eliminates a potentially huge source of stress and conflict.
Apparently a woman’s intuition is like a borderline superpower. And a guy’s intuition is borderline non-existent.
A recent survey by the cheating website Illicit Encounters found that women are WAY more likely to know if they’re being cheated on.
Here are four stats . . .
- 79% of women who’ve caught someone cheating said they could tell something was going on. Only 49% of guys suspected anything. So the other half had no idea.
- Women are more likely to KEEP calling you out if they think something’s going on. The average woman who’d caught someone cheating brought it up four times before they found out the truth or broke things off. Men only brought it up twice.
- Men and women are both just as likely to deny something’s going on. 85% of women who’ve been caught cheating said they denied it, and so did 82% of men.
- Women are more likely to hire a private investigator to find out what’s going on. 5% of women who’ve been cheated on said they did it. Only 2% of men did.
There are a few words you obviously shouldn’t use when you’re describing a woman. In theory, we shouldn’t have to hold your hand through those . . . so today we’re going to focus on the slightly LESS obvious ones.
A new survey asked women what words they HATE being described with. Here are the top 10 . . .
2. Drama queen.
4. High maintenance.
6. Ball buster.
8. High strung.
