Dating your mom? Your wife or girlfriend probably shares Man with his mothersome close similarities with the first woman you ever fell in love with: your mother.

Researchers in Finland recruited 70 men and women and compared the face of each person’s spouse to the participant’s opposite-sex parent. The absolutely horrifying results: While the women’s husbands looked nothing like their fathers, the men were likely to end up with women who “significantly” resembled their moms, says Urszula Marcinkowska, Ph.D., an evolutionary psychologist at the University of Turku.

How Facebook Ruined Dating (And Breaking Up Too)

 

The Facebook Relationship Effect is real: research shows that Facebook is changing the way we meet, date and also slowly rip each others hearts out. 

Meeting/dating/relationship-ing was hard enough before 2003. And then Facebook created a whole new set of obstacles, awkward conversations and unclear situations. “Can I admit to knowing things you’ve done (based on your pics) before we go on dates?” “Should we get to know each other on Facebook before we date?” The difficulty of dating in the era of Facebook is not just in your head, either. Researchers have found that Facebook really is altering, or at least reflecting, new relationship patterns, even how people break up. Or more accurately, don’t break up.

“I’ve been surprised at what a real impact Facebook has on romantic relationships,” Galena Rhoades, a clinical psychologist at the University of Denver, told me. “And I do think Facebook is playing bigger role in relationship formation and relationship disillusions.” Continue reading

A real love competition

Everlasting love…Is it possible for one person to love more than another? In an attempt to find out, filmmaker Brent Hoff teamed with Stanford University neuroscientists to test lovers’ abilities, using an fMRI to monitor brain activity and measure whose adoration was the strongest.

The results can be seen in The Love Competition, a short film directed by Hoff (watch the whole thing below). The San Francisco director, who edits DVD magazine Wholphin, said he knows the idea of reducing love to a neurochemical blood sport might rub some people the wrong way, but he hopes people see the film in the good-natured way he intended.

It turns out — based on the levels of activity in the dopamine, serotonin and ocytocin/vasopressin pathways — it is possible for one person to exhibit that they can love someone more deeply than another person can. But what’s amazing about The Love Competition is seeing the participants talk about their loves and the effects the fMRI tests had on them. Many come out almost giddy when the test is complete, and one woman tearily explains that she just feels lucky for the love she’s had in her life.

What they found was unique, Hoff said, because the player with the lowest score was actually the one who probably “won” in the long run. “The guy who lost, who came in dead last, was probably the happiest of anyone; he realized he wasn’t in love with his ex-girlfriend,” Hoff said. “He walks out of there with his arms raised, triumphant.”

If you have 15 minutes, this is for sure worth to watch. This isn’t about psychological evaluations, personalty tests, hundreds of questions, quizzes, behavioral matching and the rest of it. This is a short film about how some researchers are going right to the heart, er, brain, of the matter of love.

A competition were real people are  thinking about true love, and the researchers are just measuring this.

Sex expert Tracey Cox said this ‘grass is greener’ sexual syndrome isn’t new.

She said: ‘Women don’t tend to marry the guy they had great sex with. They marry for more ‘sensible’ attributes – like whether he’ll be loyal and a good father. I get lots of emails from women saying they love their husbands but fantasise about sex with their exes.

‘They don’t regret not choosing them as long-term mates, but they do miss the great sex they had.’

Women Should Move To Denver While Men Should Move To Birmingham

What happens when there are too many or too few men on the marriage market? According to a recent study, the economy can fluctuate wildly.The beauty of a woman Is not in the clothes she wears, The figure that she carries, Or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, Because that is the doorway to her heart, The place where love resides. The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole But true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, The passion that she shows, And the beauty of a woman With passing years only grows!

Imagine a map of the United States that highlights the places where the sex ratio is skewed in favor of either men or women. Across the country, gender balance can vary dramatically by region. Denver and Las Vegas tilt heavily toward men. By contrast, Birmingham and Peoria abound with women. Research has exposed that such imbalances spur shifts in mating dynamics. Now, a team of scientists have superimposed another layer of change that results from biased sex ratios onto this image: consumer behavior. Continue reading
