I work at a major university, there are, starting next week, over 20,000 women age about 17 to 25 on campus. (some of these gals are show-stoppers, I assure you) I wouldn't swap any of them for my wife of 40 years.
If we allow ourselves, we become slaves to our DNA's demands. It all started long ago........
The strategy DNA uses to make sure it is replicated works on two different paths for men and women.
With men, there is a hard wired desire to mate with every woman possible. That way their DNA has the best chance of survival. It matters very little whether we stick around to raise our children; we tend to play the numbers game. Also, younger, child bearing age women, are more likely to continue our DNA than older women.
With women, the most successful strategy is to select a partner who will be there help her through the late term pregnancy and child rearing years when she is not as able to gather enough roots and berries to survive on her own, and still take care of the child (The DNA container). That is why women are generally more picky about partners than men are.
Its kinda like the difference in involved and committed. The difference in the two is like a bacon and egg breakfast; in a bacon and egg breakfast the chicken is involved, the pig is committed. Men are involved, women committed.
The neat thing about civilization is we learn to step outside of our animal dives.... Well some of us do.
