Study Reveals Men With Cats are Less Likely to Get a Date

According to a recent study by Colorado State University, if you’re a cat man, you’re less likely to score a date with women. That’s the bottom line according to the research. 708 women between the ages of 18 and 24 participated in the study. They were shown two pictures of the same man at varying stages of the online study. The images were with and without cats, and the statistics showed that those who had a feline in the image were less favored by the participants.

If you’re a Texas man looking for love from the opposite sex, you may want to think twice about posing with your pet cat for an upcoming dating profile picture. “Men holding cats were viewed as less masculine; more neurotic, agreeable, and open; and less dateable,” the study authors said. According to study details, 38 percent of the women involved were more likely to casually date the men without a cat in their image and 37 percent would contemplate entering a serious relationship with that same person. In contrast, the same man in a picture with a cat caused those figures to drop to 33 percent in both categories. Likewise, the percentages of women polled who said that they would never think about dating that man rose to 14 percent from nine.

When the male subject was pictured by himself, 40 percent of the women in the study said that they would be unlikely to or certainly would not casually date him. This figure increased 45 percent when a cat joined him in the picture. This figure also increased from 41 percent to 45 percent in those who outright said they wouldn’t consider him for a relationship.

What does this mean? According to the study authors, it’s believed that the study results stem from long-held cultural stereotypes pertaining to dog and cat owners. In commenting on their findings, they wrote: “It is important to note that these findings were influenced by whether the female viewer self-identified as a ‘dog’ or ‘cat’ person, suggesting that American culture has distinguished ‘cat men’ as less masculine, perhaps creating a cultural preference for ‘dog men’ among most heterosexual women in the studied age group.”

  1. Being an animal lover who has owned 4 cats plus a few dogs, I’m more worried about the 708 COLORADO WOMEN in the study who are branding MEN because of something they have been brainwashed into. I have known some “dog loving” men who abuse their dogs. I rarely have known any men who abuse their cats! I have also known “dog loving” men who also love their wife’s cats!

    Women should look at how the MEN treat all animals….THOSE are the keepers!

  2. Ridiculous. How “normal”were the people who answered the questions? I like cats and I’ve gotten laid hundreds of times. Sometimes more than once in a night. Sometimes with more than one woman. If a study is designed incorrectly, you can reach any conclusion you want. I once read a study that said that if you ate ice cream before you went swimming you would drown. Yeah. Right. Statistics. For fools.

  3. Men who like cats are awesome! Men who are animal lovers are awesome! I have no idea who they polled, but I think they need to try again! :-).

  4. “Men holding cats were viewed as less masculine; more neurotic, agreeable, and open; and less dateable,” … so much for the new woke male
