If you really want to impress your dinner date, when you pick her up in the Ferrari, don’t mention it’s rented.
The same appeal, or lack thereof, can be attributed to home ownership. In Les Christie’s article on CNNMoney in February, he proposes that homeownership can be a true aphrodisiac. He throws out a staggering statistic that could explain the failure of so many young men out there to really connect with the hotties: They surveyed 1,000 single people, and more than a third of women said they would rather date a homeowner than a renter. (It was 18% for men). By the way, going back home to live with your parents basically kills your odds of scoring.
