From an evolutionary biology standpoint, this makes good sense: the man who propagates his genes successfully does not need months to judge the reproductive potential of his mate, or her ability to nurture and raise children; he can see these things from physical cues, as well has her energy, moods, and her instinct to take care of him.But the woman who propagates her genes is one who accurately judges whether the man with whom she mates is not only strong, but also stable - that is, capable of protecting and providing for her children until they are grown.
I agreed because I wanted to give it a chance, and I hadn't been on a date in a while.
The first date went OK, so we kept seeing each other.
I speculated that the women writing to me were subject to some kind of wishful thinking or tunnel-vision, by which they focused only on the good in their boyfriend rather than the advantages of other men. A woman couldn't wishfully think herself into a degree of love so strong that she would feel compelled to write me for help.
I eventually realized that these women were being genuine, and I was forced to admit that there was a uniquely feminine mechanism at work.

If nothing else, this blog is an outlet for voicing my astonishment at the typical female's ignorance of the male mindset.It amazed me that a woman could end up being so in love with a man that, initially, she wouldn't have seriously considered dating.In fact, I was so surprised by this that I initially doubted the truth of the stories.Since recognizing this difference in the sexes, I've had time to consider why it exists, and I think I have a reasonable understanding of what is going on.The information that a man needs to trigger romantic love is information that he can perceive within a few interactions with a woman.I believe this is true for a couple reasons: Other data, such as a woman's religious or political beliefs, her social class, her family, etc.
