RED ALERT

The lady in red may be a cliché, but the hue works for men, too. We suggest a simple sweatshirt, rather than the old money look of scarlet chinos and tweed blazer. Tianjin Medical University

WELL AGED

Put down the Just For Men. A study found that older men are considered attractive, as they represent power and financial independence. Embrace the grey. University of Abertay

BUILD BIGGER PECS

A survey revealed a man’s well-honed chest is the feature that women find most attractive, closely followed by haircut and arms. So, make a beeline for the bench press. Dr Felix

LIVE ON THE EDGE

Potential partners like men who engage in adrenaline-fuelled activities like mountain biking, rather than just lifting weights. Deadlift PB? That don’t impress them much, sadly. University of Alaska Anchorage

EAT GARLIC

Yes, seriously. Women smelled pads from the armpits of men who ate garlic and those who didn’t. The garlic munchers’ scent was rated more attractive. Still, keep some gum handy. University of Stirling

HIRSUTE PURSUIT

We’re not at “peak beard” yet. In a study of 8500 women, men with facial hair were rated as more attractive than the clean-shaven. Journal of Evolutionary Biology

UP GUITAR HERO

Science proves yet another stereotype, as a study finds that men have more luck getting phone numbers when they are carrying a guitar. Time to jump on the bandwagon. University of Southern Brittany

SPLASHING CASH

You’d think offering to pay for dinner would endear you to your date. Wrong. A new survey found that most women now prefer to split the bill. Badoo Dating App

LOSING SLEEP

Playing the martyr won’t help your appeal. A survey found that men who didn’t get enough sleep were less attractive, with respondents saying that they looked “sad”. Karolinska Institute

BATTLE SCARS

It may only mark the time you fell off a skateboard when you were 10, but men with scars really are more attractive than those without. Time to perfect your shark bite stories. University of Liverpool

KEEP YOUR TOP ON

Topless photos and gym selfies are the biggest profile picture turn-offs on dating apps. If you really want to make someone swipe right, a (fully clothed) snap in the countryside wins out. Badoo Dating App

MAN’S BEST FRIEND

Sure, a meet-cute with a poo bag in hand isn’t ideal, but a canine wingman raises your odds of retrieving someone’s number. Ruppin Academic Centre
