When the little buzzer went off after three minutes, I was (typically) still in the process of trying to explain to my bedazzled dating partner why my last name has three syllables (it’s Dutch).
As you can imagine, I did not find the love of my life.
In fact, it can even prevent you from a making a decision in the first place.
You might assume that when trying to find a good dating partner, having a large, varied pool of potential candidates available to you is a good thing, but new research indicates that it is not.
Uncertain participants reported thinking about the men the most, and this increased their attraction toward the men. (Most of us didn't need scientific studies for that but, hey, I'm .) Studies show that often the main reason men kiss is to progress toward sex. to get more sex: …females were more likely to engage in post-coital behaviors related to bonding with both short- and long-term partners, whereas males were more likely to engage in ones that were extrinsically rewarding or increased the likelihood of further coital acts.
 What determines how much a guy spends on an engagement ring?
The younger the woman, the more he spends: The total spent on rings was positively correlated to the annual incomes of both men and women but negatively correlated to women's ages.
I've posted many studies offering hope and inspiration but to be honest and fair, we also need to look at facts about people many like to deny. If you wish to retain illusions that the realm of sex and relationships is pure as the driven snow or that outside of physical dimensions there are no fundamental differences between men and women, turn back now as I am about to open a large can of peer-reviewed whoop-ass.
Let's say I'm in the grocery store, and I'm in the mood for jam.
And yet, sometimes, you sit back, and the bed seems kinda empty, and you really just want some f*cking jam.
When someone plays hot-cold, keeps you guessing, makes you constantly uncertain? No, we haven't because they really are more attractive. The worst parts — their entitlement and exploitativeness: …narcissism leads to popularity at first sight.
Yeah, that makes you attracted: Participants in the uncertain condition were most attracted to the men — even more attracted than were participants who were told that the men liked them a lot. Second, the aspects of narcissism that are most maladaptive in the long run (exploitativeness/entitlement) proved to be most attractive at zero acquaintance. The stereotypes are true: men want sex more than women and, yeah, guys are more likely to hit on girls with big boobs.
