For Discussion: Men Are Genetically Programmed To Decide Within Milliseconds If They Want To “Mate” With A Woman

Scientific research shows that men make snap judgments about women based on their appearance that lead them to decide almost instantly whether they’d like to “partner” with them or not — whereas women take more time to decide because they tend to factor in other information. Details when you …

Men weigh up potential partners almost instantaneously based on their appearance because their “ancient” genetic preference for attractive mates leads them to, experts claim.

According to research, a woman with an attractive face is taken by men to be fertile and able to continue the family line, appealing to the man’s survival instinct.

In contrast women take longer to decide their feelings for a man because they need to weigh up whether he will be a committed partner who will provide for them well – part of their survival programming.

Professor Mark van Vugt and Dr Johanna van Hooff, from the University of Amsterdam, and postgraduate student Helen Crawford, from the University of Kent, were behind the study which is to be published by the Oxford Journal Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience.

They tested men and women’s bias towards looks by conducting a series of tests on 20 women and 20 men, making them perform tasks while recording their brain activity.

While the subjects were doing the task they were shown a series of photographs of faces of the opposite sex, ranging from attractive to ugly.

Men were easily distracted when they saw a pretty face but women stuck to the task.

Prof van Vugt said: “Men definitely have the most wandering eye but it is because they have evolved to pay attention to cues of fertility and one of those cues is facial beauty – it’s not that men are shallow.

“But we found they do make snap judgments about women, much earlier than was previously thought. They make that decision on whether a woman would be a good mating partner in milliseconds.

“This is something very ancient and a way of helping men find the best mate to produce children.

“Women were not distracted by attractive male faces because women need more proof of whether a man is a good mate.

“Women make that decision on behaviour, whether a man is trustworthy and committed. They make their decision much later than men.”

Does that sound about right to you? Men and their primitive instincts!!! Ladies, how long does it normally take you to decide you’d like to ‘mate’ or ‘partner’ with a man? Guys, what about you? Is it really an instant decision?

Does this mean that love at first sight is only possible for men???

    All these stupid studies.. Can they not use that money towards useful info instead of something we already know…?

  • Whateva (the real, accept no substitutes)

    I believe it. That’s why we get caught cheatin’ and women not so much

    @ Whateva

    I would have to disagree with your comment. The difference btwn a man and a woman is that men can’t lie to save their lives, while a woman can live and lead a double life all the while smiling in her man’s face…

  • Sheez-Da-truth

    Yea like a better way to educate the inner city youths!!!
    As far as this study I would say that when it came to men I wouldn’t focus on his looks as much as I would with a woman. I would put a man through the ringer for the most part…but allow a woman to get away with murder :-(

    If anybody out there has lived longer than a minute, then I hope that you concur that this study is accurate…………….except that those good for nothing men very seldom stick around too long. And it’s not cause anybody got big or anything. Sometimes too much reality called “responsibility and committment” is too much for the fools.

    But I totally agree, please stop wasting your time writing grants for research that’s a given.

    Why don’t one of you geniuses write a grant on why you keep writing duplicate grants!!!!!

    SHEESH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I can’t wait to see the male responses to this.

    This is not news at all, but sure why not talk about another boring azz topic, that eventually will be a black male/female bashing sessions…let the games begin!
