Speed dating sex
These numbers were influenced by the mating orientation of the other sex, however. From dating to mating and relating: Predictors of initial and long-term outcomes of speed-dating in a community sample.The chances of a women mating increased if their partner had a short-term mating orientation, and the chances of a man mating increased if their partner had a long-term mating orientation. It's been in my experience that most women want a man who "is sweet and will treat them with respect and as equals" and yet they will fall head over heels for shallow men simply because they're exciting and a challenege and they believe they can save the guy from his immoral ways.
The arguments for this seem either forced or just speculation because it seems that men who prefer casual encounters or are willing to engage in such, are less likely to want a long-term commitment.They were followed-up by the researchers six weeks and 12 months after the speed-dating session.Consistent with parental investment theory, women, on average, tended to state an interest in long-term mating more so than men did.The researchers relate this finding to the bandwidth-fidelity trade-off found in personality research, in which "narrower traits that are tailored to specific situational contexts and behaviours often outperform broader traits in predictive power, whereas broader traits often outperform narrower traits if the goal is to predict many different behaviours in many different contexts." once physical attributes were already taken into account, and also provided additional prediction of popularity above and beyond physical attractiveness.
