LONDON - A new UK study has revealed that women are more attracted to men who know gadgets and technology well than the ones who are obsessed with keeping themselves fit.ARTICLE CONTINUED BELOW
In a survey of as many as 3,000 women, almost three quarters said they would not go for a muscley bloke who was fanatical about his appearance.
Almost nine out of 10 revealed they find men who spend their spare time down at the gym a total turn-off.
A 24/7-technology support service Geek Squad carried out the research.
“These results will be a severe blow for the millions of men who work-out in a bid to appear more attractive to the opposite sex,” the Daily Express quoted spokesperson of Geek Squad as saying.
“Women might lust over hunky celebrities such as Pitt and Clooney - but when it comes to being in a relationship, they would rather be with someone who can give them practical help.
“It seems that women value a man who can give them support in practical ways, as well as emotionally, especially when it comes to technology and gadgets,” spokesperson added.
One in 20 women admit to dumping a guy because they knew more about fixing gadgets than he did - “it’s not you, it’s me, I have this thing about geeks”. (ANI)
