Gay guy dating straight guy
In other words, when it came to dating-related matters, there was an almost instantaneous level of implicit trust.
Still, more needed to be done to support the hypothesis.
But with society’s attitudes toward gays and lesbians changing, it’s become all the more important to build a holistic understanding of the relationships between gay and straight people.
We had women read this news article and then indicate how much they would trust a straight woman or a gay man in various dating-related scenarios.At first glance, this explanation may seem quite counterintuitive.(After all, straight women and gay men don’t mate with one another.)However, this is precisely the reasoning behind my approach.It really only had to do with one thing: dating and relationships.
To further examine why this might be the case, we had women imagine receiving information from either a straight woman, straight man, or a gay man about their physical appearance and the dateability of potential boyfriends.
Other findings—combined with our own—show that there seems to be an extremely strong psychological underpinning for why women are so drawn to gay men.
