Men are most likely to form a relationship with a woman who wears red on the first date.
According to a new poll, the safest colour to wear to bag a boyfriend is scarlet, while the ones to avoid are yellow and brown.
Women, on the other hand, tend to find men the most appealing when they are wearing the colour grey.
Yellow is most likely to put both sexes off on a first date in a potential partner – and women especially dislike a man in pink.
There we have it, ladies – if it’s a man you’re after, you’d best wear red. Similarly, if you’re looking to bag yourself a bull, wearing red works for that too. Wear too much red and, presumably, you’re in danger of dating a minotaur.
Still, while there’s nothing groundbreaking in the revelation that women look attractive when dressed in red, that doesn’t mean there isn’t a company behind the article looking to cash in on a well-worn stereotype:
‘Whilst it may well be considered fickle to base the odds of a second date with someone on the colour they choose to wear upon an initial meeting, the fact is that we make our primary assessments of potential partners extremely quickly,’ said George Charles of vouchercodespro.co.uk, who commissioned the research.
