The number one turn-on according to 74 percent of women surveyed was men who had the ability to fix things themselves. Another 61 percent said they would be turned off by a potential partner who wasn’t handy. Does this mean the next time I fix a slow drain I should slip that into conversation with a woman? It seems like the worst pickup line ever.
