He taught that women were attracted to men with resources (so that they could protect them and their offspring) and that men were attracted to women with the characteristics of fertility (who would be more likely to bear multiple children.) While this theory seems to have worked well in our society, it certainly isnâ€™t the only factor affecting attractiveness.
There are plenty of physically attractive, rich men who donâ€™t have any luck with women, and plenty of men without money (or looks) who do just fine.
One thing that struck me very early on in my forays was that everyone had an opinion about “what worked” in terms of dating.But too often those opinions were based on anecdotes, assumptions about human behaviour I knew to be wrong, or – worse – pure misogyny.As a psychologist who has studied attraction, I felt certain that science could offer a better understanding of romantic attraction than all the self-help experts, pick-up artists and agony aunts in the world. Whether you are aware of it or not, every thought you have, every emotion you feel, everything you hear and read, affects your reality. Simply put it is a Universal Law that says we will attract into our lives the things that we focus our attention on, whether it is positive or negative.
