Who Do You Trust For Dating Advice?
Here’s some fun information. University of Texas researchers gave 146 participants an imaginary profile of someone named ‘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.
