Sorry, “American Pie.” The band geeks are having the last laugh!
According to a recent French study, participants had a 31% success rate when asking women on date when they happened to be holding a musical instrument. Without the instrument, it was only 14%.
The traditional explanation – that women see musicians as rock stars – was put forth, but a few deeper reasons were also presented. According to the report, playing an instrument is a sign that a man is “intelligent and can…learn new skills and has independent hobbies.”
Well, it’s just one survey…but it’s a start, and we’ll take it!
