I was reading a book by David M. Buss called “The Evolution of Desire.” It’s all about the strategies of human mating and how that ties to evolutionary psychology.
The premise is that we behave a certain way based on the reproductive needs of our ancestors. Those of you who read my blog know that I love evolutionary psychology. I find it fascinating and often correlate my dating and relationship advice back to theories behind evolutionary psychology. I studied evolutionary psychology in college and I couldn’t get enough!
It’s pretty straightforward…
Men want sex and women want commitment. Okay, I realize it’s not that straightforward, but it’s the basic premise of our reproductive needs.
Both men and women ultimately have the same goal, however, and that is reproductive success. After that… it get’s a little tricky.
