“Men need to be out with their mates!” says scientist paid by drinks company
To be a happy chap, see your pals twice a week: Men’s wellbeing depends on meeting up with friends and ‘doing stuff’
It is the scientific research that will provide husbands with the perfect excuse to join their mates in the pub.
A leading psychologist claims men’s health and well-being are greatly improved if they see their friends twice a week.
Professor Robin Dunbar of Oxford University claims in a report that while ‘talking with mates’ on a daily basis is valuable, to experience the real benefits of friendship men must meet up in person twice a week with four friends and ‘do stuff’.

Important research from the none other than Oxford University here, discovering that for perfect male health and well-being, men should spend plenty of time hanging around with their mates.
Surely Oxford University are above having their research reputation compromised by a PR team acting on behalf of an invested company. Surely?
Professor Dunbar, whose report was commissioned by Guinness, said: ‘Bonds can be formed through a range of activities from team sports to male banter – or simply having a pint with your pals on a Friday night. However, the key to maintaining strong friendships is to meet up twice a week and do stuff with the four people closest to you.’
Stephen O’Kelly, from Guinness, said: ‘When guys get together physically and more frequently with their mates, their friendships become stronger, better and a richer life results.’
Stay classy, Oxford University.
