Men find women more attractive when they wear red

Men find women more attractive when they wear red – Scientists found that when men were shown a picture of a “moderately attractive” woman in a red top that they reacted more favourably to her than when she was wearing a blue top.

When asked what questions they would like to pose to the girl in either outfit the men were more flirtatious when they were addressed to the woman in red, according to the European Journal of Social Psychology report in the Daily Mail.

When the men were told they could meet the women they moved their chairs closer when told it was the woman in red.

Researchers said the behaviour was because red signals a good mating opportunity.

In the animal kingdom red often signals when the female is at her most fertile.

Niesta Kayser of University of Rochester in New York said that women going on a date should “wear a red shirt or dress” to maximise their chances of success. ( )

Beyonce Pregnant? – Are “Single Ladies” singer Beyonce Knowles and rapper-husband Jay-Z facing parenthood? Rumors to that effect have been circulating for a while, but today one website quotes a source as saying the reports are true.

“B was shocked. She loves kids, but she wasn’t ready to be a mother just yet,” the source told the magazine. “She really wanted to get her album done and tour the world again.”

The web site also quoted sister Solange as saying Beyonce would make “a great mom” and record executive Kevin Lies as saying his rapper pal Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, “has been all about family.”

In interviews after her 2008 wedding to the 40-year-old “Empire State of Mind” rapper, Beyonce, known for her chandelier earrings and skimpy skirts, said she would like to have a family but that she had no timeline. ( )
