Unfortunately, the only cure for love is loneliness. So if you find yourself all alone this Valentine's Day, take heart. At least you're sane.
Many of you will protest these findings and insist that you can make up for your lack of physical beauty with personality, charm and talent.
According to Randy Thornhill of the University of New Mexico, when it comes to procreation, "beauty is everything.
"Both men and women look for symmetry in a partner, as, a long, long time ago, in the jungle, asymmetry led us to believe that our partner was riddled with horrible parasites.
Also, men prefer women with little chins because estrogen is involved with jaw development. Evidence of estrogen makes them go "Aha!
Fertility! An excellent place to deposit a seed!" Women especially complain that "he tells me he loves me, but he doesn't act like it."
According to Buss, over the millenniums men have developed the capacity for deceitful smooth-talking to fool women, who have evolved inbuilt lie-detectors to counteract this problem.
The male knows a woman won't sleep with him if he has intentions to run off afterwards, so he lies to her.
That is why women spend so much time engaged in the do-you-think-he-really-loves-me routine with their girlfriends. However, men have evolved to think that they actually believe the lies they're spouting; he is sincere in the moment, that is -- until he gets want he wants.
Even more infuriating, at least to women, is the results of Buss's studies on post-coital attraction.
Apparently, when asked how they felt about a partner after sex, most males said they were "less attracted" while most women said they were "more attracted".
