Are Women Always More Selective in Mate Choice?

Published November 13, 2011 by matchsoul

 

Women sit at tables around a room, and men move from table to table for a short interaction with each woman. Afterwards, everyone either checks “yes” or “no” to indicate their interest in a second date. Studies of speed-dating align with the fundamental principles of evolutionary psychology: women are much more selective than men when it comes to mate choice since women pay greater reproductive costs by making the wrong choice. Men check “yes” for a larger number of women than women do for men.

  • I think that’s definitely true. Men seem to choose asked predominantly on appearance and women have more criteria on their list to evaluate for. Though, I will say that it’s really tough to evaluate anything during speed dating events….lol. Everyone seems nervous and has no game plan for what to say to each other. It’s often awkward.
