Looking for Love? Look at the Car!

ford-saleen-s72Will this Valentine’s Day have you looking for love? Maybe you just want to know more about your mate. Not only does the type of vehicle we drive say a lot about us, but so does the color. New research actually shows what kind of car you should look for to find the mate you’re looking for.   What Your Car or Truck Says About You ? 

Just because you might be in love with the Porsche 911 doesn’t mean you should be attracted to the driver. Its buyers are 86.8% male with the average age of 51. They make a lot of money and often give themselves big rewards for personal successes.

This might be good news if you’re not in the market for a soul mate. In that case, go ahead and drive something fast and sexy. For speed daters, a sports car is the way to go.

If you are looking to attract a woman, you may want to steer clear of women driving an SUV. Nearly 80% of all female SUV buyers are married.

If marriage is what you’re looking for, you may want to give off a mature, financially-responsible, and ready-to-settle-down vibe. Drive a hybrid. Save money, look modern, and score points for going green.

Not all cars or trucks were studied, but some psychologists think you can learn something from any vehicle.

Black cars denote an aggressive personality or someone who’s an outsider or rebel.
Silver cars indicate someone who’s cool, calm and slightly aloof.
Green cars can often be chosen by people with hysterical tendencies.
Yellow cars signify someone who is idealistic and novelty loving.
Blue cars are chosen by the more introspective, reflective and cautious driver.
Gray cars represent those who are calm, sober and dedicated to their work.
Red cars denote those who are full of zest, energy and drive and who think, move and talk quickly.
Pink cars are chosen by gentle, loving and affectionate drivers.
White cars represent status-seeking extrovert drivers.
Cream cars are the least likely to be involved in accidents and denote self-contained and controlled owners.

These are all generalizations, and many people say their car color does not reflect their personality. But it might just be worth thinking about if you’re thinking about love.
