New Study Finds A Third Of Women Only Date Men For This Reason… Are You Guilty?

A new study has found women culpable for leading men on because of a most basic need. The research was conducted by Brian Collisson, Jennifer Howell, and Trista Harig of Azusa Pacific University and UC Merced, and published in the journal of Social Psychological and Personality Science on Friday.

According to the study, titled a “foodie call”,  the name “foodie call” was derived from the term “booty call” – a slang for phoning an acquaintance for sex.

“Foodie call”, is a process whereby a person sets up a date with someone they are not romantically interested in, but for the purpose of getting a free meal. The study also found that one in every three ladies have gone on a date with a guy just to get a free meal.

The two online studies carried out by the researchers showed that 23 percent to 33 percent of women “have engaged in a foodie call”. During the first study, 820 women — with 40% single, 33% married, and 27% committed in a relationship but not married — were recruited. Out of the participants, 85% said they were heterosexual, and they were the focus for the study.

Their personality traits, beliefs about gender roles, and their “foodie call” history were all measured. They were also asked if they thought a foodie call was socially acceptable. Nearly a quarter — about 23 percent — of the participants in the first group said they had engaged in a “foodie call”.

Although some of the women believed “foodie call” was more acceptable, others were of the opinion that it was extremely to moderately unacceptable. For the second study, a similar set of questions of 357 heterosexual women were analysed and it was discovered that 33% had engaged in a “foodie call”.

The authors, however, stressed that neither of the studies recruited representative samples of women, so the percentage might not be accurate for women in general. They noted that “foodie calls” could happen in any kind of relationships and could be perpetrated by all genders.
