When it comes to getting a date, there’s any number of ways people can present themselves and their interests. One of the newer phenomena is a “foodie call” where a person sets up a date with someone they are not romantically interested in, for the purpose of getting a free meal.
A study conducted by the Society for Personality and Social Psychology has revealed that not all women who accept to go on dates with men do so with intimate intentions; 33% of them are gluttons whose aim is just to eat free food and go their way.
Brian Collisson, Jennifer Howell, and Trista Harig who led the research are reported as saying that such women normally show signs of psychopathy, Machiavellianism and narcissism also referred to as dark triads due to their malevolent qualities.
Out of 820 female respondents the researchers focused on, 23% admitted to being “leaches” whose primary aim is to suck men dry.
The second focus group consisted of 327, out of which 33% said they mostly accept to go on dates with men because of free food.

The study further said that the 33% of women who fall within the dark triad category mostly end up getting intimate with the men (one-night stand) after the free food and then going off without necessarily striking a long-term relationship with them.
“Several dark traits have been linked to deceptive and exploitative behavior in romantic relationships, such as one-night stands, faking an orgasm, or sending unsolicited sexual pictures,” says Collisson.
Well, now that you know, men who really know what they want must do their due diligence when taking women out; unless you have a lot of money to spare.
