Why are women attracted to men in uniform?

In a 1995, the Los Angeles Times delved into women’s psychological gravitational pull towards a man in uniform.

In the article, DePaul University psychology professor Midge Wilson explained that “a man in uniform taps into…heroism, protection and power”.

“He also suggests a chance for excitement and adventure,” Wilson said.

In an article in The Times of India, Dr Geetanjali Sharma, a marriage and relationship counsellor, suggests that, since ancient times, women prefer a partner who can protect them.

“It can be assumed that men in uniform are the modern day ‘saviours’ and hence the attraction,” Sharma was quoted as saying.
