Fortunately I don’t need to and perhaps am a little too old to put myself about on the dating scene but in my guise as a modern day Lord Chesterfield I am happy to pass on some tips and guidance to those young bucks seeking the love of their life. Rather than tweeting your gonads you should engage in a bit of manspreading.

According to Tanya Vacharkulksemuk of the University of California in a report published in the ever popular Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, those who extended their torsos, spread their arms wide and pushed their legs out and thereby occupied more space had more success in getting a request for a date at trials conducted at speed dating events and on social meejah than did those who adopted less expansive postures. Whilst it also worked for women the results were more noticeable for men.

So there you are. Forget the careful grooming and the witty repartee, just slouch on your chair. If it works, remember you read it here!
