That don't impress me much … Some guys think a flashy, expensive car and a blinged-out watch will lure in the ladies, but according to a new study, women don’t view men who flaunt material things as the marrying kind. If you're looking for a fling, however, that's a different story. The study found that both men and women agree that a man who flaunts his cars and bling is likely more interested in a brief fling than a serious, long-term relationship. Basically, guys, if you’re looking to settle down, consider a reliable car and more understated accessories. If you want a one-night stand ... bring on the bling! (Market Watch)

Researchers say that employers need to look at the findings and start offering healthier free food options for employee rewards and meetings. Wait … does that mean no doughnuts? (The Takeout)
