This happens alot.You smile at a man, he thinks it means you want to go
to bed with him. Meanwhile the woman interprets his advances as acts of
friendship.Thankfully ,scientists now have an explanation for their
behavior .. and it’s all to do with how male brains have evolved to pick
up on the wrong signals.Researcher Mons Bendixen from the Norwegian
University of Science and Technology (NTNU).,said
A man’s ability to reproduce is all about seizing every opportunity. He
has to spend both money and time on attracting women, which still may
not lead to sex.But it costs even more to not try, because then he won’t
be able to reproduce at all.’But that’s not how it works for women,’A
woman can have sex with multiple men over a short period of time without
producing any more children.
So for men, it is a low-risk, potentially high-reward situation to have sex with women whenever the opportunity presents itself.
Women’s psychology, meanwhile, has evolved to set the bar higher.This
means they need much clearer signals before they consider sex
In a recent study at NTNU, women said that they had acted friendly
towards a man and had this misinterpreted as sexual interest about 3.5
times over the past year on average.
On the flip side, scientists found that women interpret the sexual
intentions of other flirtatious women in the same way as men do.
Yet when they reported what their own intentions would be if they
behaved in the same way, the women said they were far less likely to
have sex with a man.
