Men, want to get a date? Ditch the cargo shorts


Dating app Hater has revealed the qualities of their least-swiped males – and cargo shorts are the number one deterrent for potential partners.

haterThe app, which matches people based on their shared dislikes, worked out their results by dividing their male users by the most attractive 10 per cent (who received the most ‘right’ swipes), and the least attractive 10 per cent (who were swiped ‘left’ the most).

Long shorts, Anime, Pokémon Go and Windows OS all ranked highly on the ‘least attractive’ list (sorry computer geeks).

But the top ten per cent picks’ don’t seem that alluring to us either.

A type of beer – Pabst Blue Ribbon – and ‘hair of the dog’ were top of the list, followed by superfoods, staying at Airbnb’s, V-neck sweaters and skinny jeans.

So the most attractive men are hipsters who like to drink? We don’t think so.

But maybe skip the cargo shorts for your next profile pic.
