Mate one dating
I often ask my students how they met and when they tell their stories I help them to identify the geography that was involved in the process.
Physical appearance is subjective and is defined differently for each individual.
This is important to understand that we subjectively judge ourselves as being more or less attractive; because we often limit our dating pool of eligibles to those we think are in our same category of beauty.
Now of those, how many would you be attracted to as a date and how many can you tell just by watching them that you’d probably never date?
In other words, how many single females or males are there in the same classroom?
In the United States there are millions of people between the ages of 18-24 (18-24 is considered prime dating and mate selection ages).
So, here is the million dollar question: "what if I don’t have these universally desirable traits? Here’s why, people from similar: economic class, ethnicity, religion, political persuasion, and lifestyles tend to hang out with others like themselves.
Am I excluded from the date and mate selection market? There is a principle that I have found to be the most powerful predictor of how we make our dating and mating selection choices--homogamy. Our mates resemble our parents more because we resemble our parents and we tend to look for others like ourselves.
