Mumbling on a Date Makes Men More Attractive, Study Says


  • We're told as children "don't mumble" by our parents but mumbling may help men when it comes to dating.
  • The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America studied the voices of 42 subjects while doing vocal exercises and found that the men who mumbled and "spoke less intelligibly" during conversations were found more attractive to women.
  • Researchers believe mumbling may help a man's dating game because women subconsciously connect mumbling to other masculine traits.
  • The study found the opposite in women. Women who spoke clearly and were more articulate were found to be more attractive.
