Drivers, rejoice! A recent study answered the much-debated age-old big question of what women think of a man's character and economic status according to what vehicle he drives. Unfortunately for the more shallow lads out there, one in two girls perceive you as being arrogant show-offs if they find out you drive fast exotic cars.
AnastasiaDate's most recent survey - which polled over 2,100 American men and women online in March 2014 - reached a surprising verdict. Women actually prefer the average Joe and his average Honda Civic because it reflects a high level of stability.

Those that rely on their rides to get a date, be advised: only 10 percent of girls would date you, but only for your Fezza or Lambo. Yes, your car is the deciding factor, not your looks, humor or personality. Boy-racers could be interested by this one: 56 percent of girls think that a fast car makes the driver an arrogant attention-seeker, while 17 percent think of the owner as being insecure. Ouch!

Almost half of the women surveyed said that your car reflects how much money you've got, while 46 percent say that the vehicle reflects the driver's image of himself.

According to the aforementioned results, it looks like you should stop fantasizing about driving that Italian exotic together with a beautiful lady you just met in the shopping mall. A fast car such as the Ferrari 458 Speciale is best enjoyed alone or with your significant other on a glorious Sunday, when the traffic is light and the road is winding.
