Who Do You Trust For Dating Advice?

Here’s some fun information. University of Texas researchers gave 146 participants an imaginary profile of someone nameddreamstimefree_1958759.jpg rainbow ‘Jordan’.  The profiles were identical except for ‘Jordan’s’ gender and sexual orientation. Then, they asked the participants to imagine having a conversation with Jordan about romance and dating. Would they trust Jordan’s advice? Straight women trusted Jordan more when Jordan was a gay man rather than a straight man or a woman. Gay men trusted Jordan more when Jordan was a straight woman rather than being a gay or straight man.

Hmmm, so straight women and gay men trust each other most when it comes to romantic advice.
