Medical supplies online can improve your dating prowess

A new study implies that medical supplies online can make you more successful in the online and speed-dating world. According to, recent research suggests that posture can make the difference between getting nexted and getting clicked on. And not just good posture, either; animal posture, like a chimpanzee flailing his limbs, or a peacock fanning his feathers, or Vince McMahon walking down a ramp – though he’s not too far off from being wheeled up a ramp. “We've seen it in the animal world, that taking up more space and maximizing presence in a physical space is used as signal for attracting a mate,” study co-author Tanya Vacharkulksemsuk said. “By exerting dominance they're trying to signal to a potential mate 'I am able to do things, I have a space in this hierarchy, I have access to resources.'”

So what bearing do medical supplies online have on the matter? The researchers found that “profile pictures showing outstretched arms and legs got more yeses than those with crossed arms.” Well, what better way to stretch your arms and legs than using resistance bands and tubing? Additionally, people who made hand gestures and moved their arms “nearly doubled their odds of getting a 'yes' from their partner,” as compared to those who sat still or kept their arms to themselves (though when it comes to dating, keeping your arms to yourself is a good rule of thumb, at least on the first date). That means that keeping your hands nimble with a hand exerciser ball, grip, or web can pay off – even if you don’t get a date, ahem.

The researchers taped 144 speed-dating sessions looking for facial expressions, gestures, postures, and other non-verbal cues. Then they asked the hopefuls what they thought about each other – thankfully no one said anyone else was ‘hurtin’ for a squirtin’’ – and whether they would like to meet that person again. As for online dating, the authors of the study took six heterosexual people and set up two profiles for each one, one with photos in expansive poses, and another showing them in contractive postures. They posted them in the dating world for a weekend and counted the yes marks. As mentioned above, the former got yesses like Daniel Bryan.

Just to clarify, the researchers don’t actually say that medical supplies online – like the ones mentioned in this article, available at Discount Medical Supplies – are directly or indirectly related to the results of their study. But it is easy to arrive at that conclusion using a little bit of extrapolation. Not to say that, generally speaking, being lithe and limber and in good shape overall does make one more attractive to the opposite sex – or the same sex, as the case may be – at least by Western standards.
