Nothing but Positive Vibes at Coachella 2017 

When Plenty of Fish asked singles ‘what going to Coachella says about someone’, singles described attendees as adventurous, trendy and having great musical taste. And while many singles are open to a weekend festival fling (70 percent of singles), it’s not how they perceive the attendees:

  • They’re adventurous (25.7%)
  • They’ve got great musical taste (22%)
  • They’re trendy (18.2%)
  • They try too hard (10.1%)
  • They’re a music snob (7.4%)

Movember is Sexy, According to Single Women!

Men, around the world, are changing the face of men’s health this month by letting their facial hair run wild while raising awareness about the devastating effects of various cancers taking the lives of their fathers, sons and brothers. This annual event is called Movember!

Still wondering whether or not you should partake in this charitable act by growing a ‘stache’? It turns out, single women will think you’re sexier for it!

PlentyOfFish recently conducted a survey, and according to single heterosexual women 21+  from the US; 64% think charitable giving is very sexy!

If a man is participating in “Movember” (growing his mustache during the month of November, for charity) does it make him more attractive?

20% of women also think a mustache makes a man more attractive. All the more reason to start growing your epic ‘Tom Selleck’ bristles. But seriously, can we take a moment and stare in awe at Tom’s mustache!

PlentyOfFish recently surveyed over 500 single users over the age of 21 in the United States, to uncover the top male and female costumes considered the most attractive by the opposite sex.

Here is what we found:

Batman is the sexiest costume according to single women!

It’s no surprise that a lot of men are dressing as The Joker (28%), but listen up guys; when we asked single ladies ‘what male costume is most attractive’ a whopping 26% of females chose Batman, beating out The Joker, who only received 14%.

The top three hottest costumes for men: 

  • Batman 26%
  • Netflix and Chill 16%

We strongly suggest all single men steer clear of The Donald Costume and dress up as ANYTHING ELSE. Even the fictional anime character, Pikachu, was considered hotter than Trump! See for yourself below.
