London, Sep 13 (IANS) Many believe that women fall for men who have a stable job, but a new survey reveals that they find guys who can play a guitar more attractive.
Apparently, men who play a guitar have an instant appeal about them for women, which was considered more important than salary, jobs and interesting hobbies, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Online dating site Lovestruck.com conducted the study. As high as 62 percent of Lovestruck members found that a man who plays a guitar is far more attractive than those who have no musical aptitude.
Around 46 percent of people surveyed said that a guitar player might be thoughtful, soulful and creative, which were qualities they ranked highly in a relationship.
As much as 37 percent assumed it would be romantic to be serenaded by a man with a musical flair and 39 percent said that if the man could play the guitar, they would be more forgiving if the guy was not that good looking.
"I regularly coach men to improve their skills in approaching women; and hands down a man who is passionate about something in his life, apart from getting a girlfriend, is immediately more attractive," said dating expert Hayley Quinn.
"As for guitars - think what it communicates. Thanks to everyone from Mick Jagger to John Mayer (singers who also play the string instrument), guitars still symbolise a man who is sensual, creative and who other women are attracted to," she added.
