Apparently, not all ladies who dress up, get dolled up and show up to invitations plan to forge romantic relationships. Researchers have claimed that 33% of women only go on dates with men so they could get a chance to eat free food.
According to a study by the Society for Personality and Social Psychology, some ladies are willing to wine and dine with a man they do not like just to get a chance to eat a free meal. Mostly, ladies perch on unsuspecting men when they are strapped for cash and badly crave a well-cooked meal without having to pay for it.
Researchers first focused on 820 women who were asked whether they have such habits and 23% attested to being “leaches,” who prey on men. A second focus group of 327 women also proved that 33% of the group had a tendency of dating in exchange for free meals.
Brian Collisson, Jennifer Howell, and Trista Harig then revealed most women who had this behaviour presented markers for psychopathy, Machiavellianism and narcissism also referred to as dark triads. The three traits are connected to dark behaviour including exploitation and deception.
A psychopath is a person suffering from a chronic mental disorder with abnormal or violent social behaviour. The icing on the cake is, that such ladies often end up getting intimate with the men they went on dates with and zoom off as soon as they are done.
