Love, Sex, Dating calculator - understand your chances of success at romantic relationships. Don’t believe this is possible? Just look at relationship troubles of Elon Musk, Jonny Depp and Brad Pitt. These super successful people are struggling with their romantic relationships and just can’t seem to get it right. Why?
WHY CAN’T WE GET IT RIGHT?
The answer is coded right into our DNA - humans have evolved a very primitive computer in our brains that calculates the genetic fitness of individuals we encounter. With Love Sex Dating Calculator, some of this genetic math is available right on your device. See the kind of relationship you are likely to have with this individual, understand the potential traps that you can fall in and make better choices.
ATTRACTION and REPULSION
Some people we meet excite this neural circuitry and cause us to feel attraction towards them. We want to have these people as our mates and allies. Other people do not pass this internal check, causing us to feel wary of associating with them.
The reason is simple - children inherit average attractiveness of their parents. Mating with more attractive people creates more attractive children who will have easier time finding mates in the next generation. Mating with less attractive people causes more hardship for the children of such unions.
Our brains instinctively know this and guide our mate choice through feelings of attraction, indifference or repulsion. With this app, you can get a glimpse of how this works.
THE MAGICAL 10 SCALE
While it might have started as a joke, the internet allowed massive amounts of humans to compare their subjective experience of attractiveness of the opposite gender. The result is a general understanding of the 10 scale, which describes how attractive a person is. This ability to quantify attractiveness allows for the love sex calculator to work. Many of the attractiveness dynamics can be expressed in terms of the attractiveness numbers of partners.
Ever wonder why people you want as your mates hardly want you back just as much? Or why people who you are with don’t quite excite you as much as someone else? The reason is simple - human neural circuits which are responsible for attraction are very attracted to better genes. This inequality means that typically someone in a relationship makes a compromise, while the other party benefits. Surprisingly, equal pairings simply don’t excite humans enough to be stable and sustainable. Someone will tip the scales.
MADE WITH SCIENCE
This app based on principles of Evolutionary Psychology - an emerging science which explains human preferences by linking them DNA, Genes and certain ways the brain is developed. Numerous experiments revealed deeply ingrained preferences within the human brain. This app is a summary of the following works:
The Red Queen: Sex and the Evolution of Human Nature
The Adapted Mind
Spent: Sex, Evolution and Consumer Behavior
The Evolution of Desire
Why beautiful people have more daughters
As well as assorted lectures by Dr. Douglas Lisle (http://esteemdynamics.org/)
ENVIRONMENT OF EVOLUTIONARY ADAPTATION
Our brains are not built to comprehend the modern environment. Instead, we evolved to live in small hunter-gatherer tribes or villages, somewhere between 25000-100000 years ago. As such, our brains cannot comprehend the rule of law, cell phones, internet, Tinder and contraception. We are built to strictly conform to the cultural norms which existed in those prehistoric tribes. Unfortunately, many of the default choices that feel right for us are in conflict with the modern environment. Many of these choices pertain to mate selection and have a simple goal of ensuring better genetic fitness of offspring.
