If you’re a single guy looking for more dates, you might want to pay attention to how fast you talk. A new study in France found that guys who talk FAST tend to do better with women.
Researchers had men and women play a dating game, where they tried to seduce a potential love interest. And guys who talked fast did better than guys who spoke slow.
They were also asked about their sexual history. And it turned out the fast-talkers got lucky more often as well.
They’d slept with an average of FOUR people a year, compared to less than two for guys who talked at a slower pace.
The slow-talkers averaged 4.9 syllables per second. And the fast-talkers averaged 6.5 syllables, which is about 25% faster.
It’s not clear why the women preferred guys who talked fast. But the researchers think it might just be a sign of confidence. Or that confident men tend to talk faster.
The study also looked at how men responded to the way women talked. And apparently speed didn’t make a huge difference. But women with BREATHY voices . . . like Marilyn Monroe . . . were the most experienced in the bedroom.
